A-10 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, August 28, 1972 A comrnoft problem Hair loss after pregnancy By Dr. Latrrrnce E, Lamb DEAR DR. LAMB ~ I enjoy reading your column and hopo you can help me. I am 25 years old and have two children. Since I've had them I seem to bo losing a lot of hair. I have he-en told that a pei-son who has been given pas during delivery will lose hair afterward. 1 wonder if I'm lacking a certain protein or vitamin. I can scratch my scalp and llio hair just falls out. I am on the nervous side lately. I also have been taking diot "pills off and on for the past two years. I really don't need them now since 1 lost all the weight 1 wanted to lose. My little girl, who is 3 years old. has long blond hair which hasn't been cut since she was bom. It hasn't seemed to grow any more during the past year and her hair seems to be falling out. This is another reason I wonder if we're lacking a vitamin or protein. I should mention that I have an oily skin problem and wash mv h;>ir twice a week. DEAR READER - U Is common for women to lose hair after pregnancy. The condition is temporary and usually disappears within a year after delivery. This, however, has nothing to do with having a gas anesthetic for the delivery. There are: many causes for excessive loss of hair including nervousness. In this regard, if you're already "on the nmous side," I'm not sure that taking diet pills which usuallv cause nervousness is the best idea. Since you've lost ; ; il the weight you intend to, you should discontinue this practice entirely. If you diet in the fill tire, it might lie wise for you to avoid diet pills. Some endocrine disorders including a low thyroid function can contribute to of hair and also oily scalp. The most frequent cause of of hair, however, is excessive beauty treatments that many women take, whether they arc done at home or commercially.

Reg. $1.49 ALTON WO.QD RIVER YOUR PRESCRIPTION CORNERS hair too tight or a hair style which pulls the hair tiRhtly will aggravate Iho normal loss nf hair. Hopeatrd uses of tints and dves at ton frequent intervals also ean damage the hair follicles and rrsult in loss of hnj?-. Harsh shampoos used too frequently can also muse difficulty rather than helping. As n general measure 1 usually recommend 1o people with falling hair to try to wash thc:r hair about once a week with n mild shampoo, and to leave the hair loose and natural. Brush with a soft brush. If you continue to have a lot of falling hair ask your doctor about it. He may wish to rlo some tests 1o see how your endocrine glands are functioning. Regarding your little girl, hair is constantly being lost and replaced. All animals do this. Some do it by seasons, and this is the typical shedding or molting season. In humans the follicles produce hair on a staggered time basis so that some new hair is always being formed, and some old hair is reaching Us normal life span continuously. Otherwise, we would have a molting season too. Hair does have a definite limit to the length it will grow. When it gets to this length it stops growing and tends to fall. I suspect that this is the case with your little girl. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph.

J., a moment after Diane Jackson of Los Angeles, won the title Miss Black America and then relinquished the title to Miss Barney, who had been runnerup. Miss Jackson announced to the crowd she would rather pursue a singing career than be a queen. (AP Wirephoto) Black queen gives up title for singing career LOS ANGELES (AP) Linda Binney is the new Miss Black America but only because Diane Jackson didn't want the title. Miss Jackson, 22, of Los Angeles was crowned before a Hollywood Palladium crowd of 700 Saturday night and promptly announced she was giving up the title to accept a singing contract. She turned and placed the crown on the head of the 19- year-old New Jersey premedical student, first runner- up in the contest that drew black beauties from 36 states. J. Morris Anderson, producer of the five-year-old festival, said later that Miss Jackson's action was "not on the spur of the moment." He said others had influenced her, seeking (o harm the event. Anderson would not elaborate but said he was consulting with attorneys and planned to meet with newsmen later this week. Anderson said Miss Barney, 19, will receive the title prizes which include $5,000 for personal appearances, $800 toward her career, a wrist watch, cosmetics and clothing. Miss Barney said she will take a year's leave from her studies but would return to school. Joyce Warner, 1971's Miss Black America, refused to attend the pageant, claiming she had been exploited by pageant promoters "to make financial gains for a few individuals who claim to be working in the best interests of black people."

OPEN TUESDAY THKU SATUKDAY 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 465-6411 Avenues of fashion Men have come a long way By CHIP TOLBERT To paraphrase the words of the well-known former commercial and current ad, gentlemen, "we've come a long, long way!" I recently read that the male students a t the University of Washington, claiming sex discrimination, had won their battle to have hair dryers installed in the men's locker room. They say it's to pi-event long-haired men from catching cold after a workout, but I bet there's an underlying motive for good grooming as well, don't, you? Dear Mr. Tolbert: A friend of mine has been taking a scries of scalp massages, and he swears new hair is growing on his head. Can this be possible? — N. N. T., Cleveland. Dear N.N.T.: Yours is actually, a medical question which I'm not qualified to answer. A dermatologist could. I have heard, though, that massage stimulates the circulation to the scalp, allowing an additional blood supply to the hair follicles and strengthening them. And I can tell you from experience that a scalp massage is one of the most relaxing things in the world- Dear Mr. Tolbert: What do yon think of these new "hot combs," or portable hair dryers with brush and comb attachments? — M. F., Indianapolis. DEAR M. F.: I think they're just about the greatest invention since sliced bread, once you get the hang of using them properly. You all know by now that I'm firmly in favor of tho newly relaxed rules of dress 125% DISCOUNT! | ON DRAPES § f NATIONAL CLEANERS • I East Alton f Whatever your scene— LEVI'S makes it with a great qroup of fashion minded slacks.

Nights 'til 0 which allow you much more leeway in what you choose to wear, But there are still some "rules" I think ought to be followed, not so much from the standpoint of, being correct (although they are), but as a matter of simple esthetics. For instance: Dear Mr. Tol&ert: How long should your shirtsleeves be? That Is, how much cuff should show underneath your jacket sleeve? — K. L., Nashville. DEAR R. L.: The cuff should end at the break of the wrist, and the length of the jacket sleeve should be cut accordingly, so that a little less than one inch of cuff shows. (If you like a little more cuff to show, that's O.K., too.) But the sleeve length of your .jacket is the really operative thing: a current political figure wears them almost to mid-knuckle which, for some reason, gives him a gorilla-like look — •awful! Dear Mr. Tolbert: Do you think French cuffs will ever come back? I like them so much better than the buttoned kind. — G. R. B., Alton DEAR G.R.B.: They've never been all that far away if you looked hard enough (or asked to have them special- ordered by your department or men's store). But there are indications that French cuffs are going to regain some of their old popularity. I can't stress the importance of proper fit in all your clothing too strongly of too often (even if you think I do). And there's no place where It's more important than in your shoes. Uncomfortable, badly fitted shoes don't "show" except in your face — which mirrors the discomfort of your feet so that you look as mean and ugly as you feel. Dear Mr. Tolbert: I know that tight shoes can be stretched to make them more comfortable, but can anything be done about shoes that are a little bit too big. - P. K. M., Topeka. DEAR P.K.M.: There is a custom refitting method by which the back seam of a shoe can be taken up a little. But it's expensive, and it's hard to find anyone who's willing to tackle the job. Some shoe repairmen recommend putting a thickish interlining Inside the heel, which tends to take up some of the slack — but not as comfortably as getting shoes that fit right in .the first place. Dear Mr. Tolbert: The front part of my shoe soles seem to wear out faster than theyy should. What am I doing wrong?—N.L., Kalamazoo. DEAR N. L.: It sounds to me as if you're buying your shoes a little too short. Do you always have your feet measured on those metal rulers when you buy new shoes? If not, you should. A temporary measure that may help in the meantime is to get your shoe repairman to put a leather "patch" like the metal plates they put on tap dancing shoes on the front of the sole. It will shore them up for a bit more wear. If you have questions pertaining to clothes, or men's hygiene, send them to (Mr. Tolbert in care of the Alton Evening Telegraph.
