Genetics is rarely a factor in female hair loss. Usually female pattern baldness is caused by hormonal imbalance. These could be brought on by stress or by normal events like pregnancy, or menopause or even side effects of medications, such as birth control. One cannot rule out possible hair damage caused by harsh shampoos, perms or hair coloring products. But the MOST common cause of hair loss in women is hypothyroidism. This is where there is a lack of thyroid hormone in the body. This can affect the body’s metabolism, cell growth and absorption of nutrients, which indirectly can have an effect on your hair.
Thanks. My shedding still hasn’t stopped. Now on month 14 of propecia, + keto + minox. I talked to my Dr about trying DUT . . . he said no given it isn’t FDA approved. But I’m thinking of increasing my dose of propocia from 1.25mg (1/4 of a proscar pill) to 2.5mg (so take half a pill. Anything wrong with doing that???

Best product I’ve ever used, and I’ve tried lots of products. I only use it once a day morning if I’m not washing my hair or early evening. Read instructions and make sure you allow NO dripping on face and make sure you clean hands thoroughly to not transfer product to face…I made that mistake and had to purchase an epilator. But it’s worth it…. Hair loss is Sad. I was seriously thinning more every year with bald pattern on top. No I don’t have tons of hair now, but hair has grown in, no bald patches and its thicker. I was wearing wig, but can now wear my own hair after 4 mths of use. Don’t be alarmed if hair sheds at first, per instructions its normal.

Lists of suspected toxicants are linked to twelve health effects. Suspected toxicants possess evidence that they can cause specific adverse health effects. However, no authoritative hazard identification process is currently conducted by regulatory agencies or scientific organizations for these health effects. It is important to consider a chemical on a “suspected” list as a preliminary indication that the chemical may cause this effect, rather than a definitive finding that it does. In order to identify suspected toxicants, information is abstracted from the principal toxicology text books (such as Casarett and Doull’s Toxicology), medical journal articles, regulatory actions, and international chemical hazard resources (such as the European Union). The weight of toxicological or epidemiological evidence supporting suspect hazard identification can vary significantly between chemicals. For example, evidence from two different laboratory species indicates that acetonitrile can cause cardiovascular toxicity. In contrast, overwhelming evidence indicates that carbon monoxide causes cardiovascular toxicity in humans. These disparate data lead to designation as a “suspected” toxicant as an authoritative agency has yet to compile lists of cardiovascular toxicants. Identifications developed by regulatory agencies or scientific references often undergo peer review, but an administrative process that allows for debate over and conclusive resolution to the toxicity designation of a chemical has yet to be put in place.
An authoritative third-party (such as a regulatory agency) reviewed the ingredient and determined that its use in a certain type of product (e.g., rinse-off hair products) does not result in significant exposure or health risk.
I was skeptical, but this product does really work. My thin hair not only looks thicker, but I can feel the difference too. I stopped using it for about 2 weeks, not on purpose, and noticed my hair felt thin and didn’t look as good as when I was using the product! Started up again and viola, it looks great now. Another product that I use in my hair routine is Propidren DHT Blocker with Saw Palmetto to Prevent Hair Loss and Stimulate Hair Follicles to Stop Hair Loss and Regrow Hair which is in pill form so I don’t have to mix anything with water and make a mess. I like this product and will continue to use it .
Hey Neel, that’s a bit odd. It’s usually the other way around. For most, Finasteride works better for regrowing crown hair than the ‘windows peak’. It may be because you may have been receding on your temples only for the last year, yes. Thanks for sharing your update.

Physicians are reluctant to use systemic treatment (a pill or other form of internal treatment that affects your entire system) unless they know that the hair loss is due to an excess of androgen in the system or a sensitized “over-response” to the so-called “normal” amounts of androgen in the system. That’s because these systemic treatments may lower the body’s androgen levels. Therefore, physicians often choose topical treatments (those that are applied directly to the scalp).
If you’re going to use supplements with your hair in mind, tell your doctor before you start taking them. That way, your doctor can watch out for any possible side effects, including interactions with other drugs you’re taking.
Finasteride’s hair-raising success is due to its ability to specifically inhibit Type II 5-alpha-reductace, the enzyme that converts testosterone into a more potent androgen dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Propecia’s 1 mg dose of finasteride can effectively lower DHT levels by as much as 60% when taken daily. It is DHT that shrinks or miniaturizes the hair follicle, which eventually leads to baldness. This 60% reduction in DHT has proven to stop the progression of hair loss in 86% of men taking the drug during clinical trials. 65% of trial participants experienced what was considered a substantial increase in hair growth.
Elemental calcium is contained in most “multi-mineral supplements. This type of calcium has been known to coat the blood vessels with scaling, similar to what happens when you put tap water in your iron. Eventually, these tiny blood vessels that feed the scalp are squeezed down to a trickle and then they cannot supply the necessary nourishment to the hair.
P.R.P. is one of a number of new hair-loss treatments being marketed to women, who suffer hair loss in fewer numbers but often more acutely than men because, for them, hair loss is less socially acceptable, and historically they have had fewer and less potent medical solutions.
Scalp reduction surgery literally reduces the amount of scalp. Balding areas are surgically removed and replaced by stretching hair-filled scalp in its place. Bald spots can also be folded over into a flap.
GET A VOLUMIZING CUT: In most cases, shorter cuts are kinder to thinning hair. “The longer your hair grows, the more likely it is that sections will separate and reveal your scalp,” explains Mancuso. Whatever length you choose, ask for interior layers, which are placed throughout your cut, not just on the ends, to add fullness.
in clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to minoxidil topical solution 2% was reported: 19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using minoxidil topical solution 2% for 8 months (19% had moderate regrowth; 40% had minimal regrowth). This compares with 7% of women reporting moderate hair regrowth after using the placebo, the liquid without minoxidil in it, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth; 33% had minimal regrowth).

Hair loss in women has been a subject of taboo for a long time and this has led women to mostly resort to home remedies. But with a broadening in the thinking of people these days, new and advanced medical treatments are being frequently favored. So, if none of those prevention and home remedies work, you are still left with a plethora of ways to treat your hair loss.
Finasteride (Propecia). This prescription drug is available only to men. It’s taken daily in pill form. Many men taking finasteride experience a slowing of hair loss, and some may show some new hair growth. You need to keep taking it to retain benefits.
Apply the oil by lightly massaging it into your hair and scalp. If you are using coconut oil, do not try to melt the oil using a microwave, use your hands instead. Coconut oil does not need much heat to melt. Repeat at least twice a week for a minimum of two months to see some results.
A little farther up the follicle is the mysterious feature called the bulge. That’s where follicle stem cells live. When they get the right set of chemical signals, these self-renewing cells divide. They don’t divide like normal cells, in which both halves become new cells that keep splitting and developing. Only one half of the follicle stem cell does that. The other half becomes a new stem cell, and stays put for future regeneration.
Find out what you’re missing in your diet and make up for it. For me it was vitamin C and folic acid and I’m anemic. I started a prenatal, and vitamin C supplements, and I eat way more protein, mostly fish and chicken. I keep it moisturized and a massage every other day when I shampoo. To fix this problem you need to go about it by attacking all 3 ways. Inside your body, scalp, and your actual hair. Take vitamins AND easy a healthy diet. Be careful of too much iron it can be constipating. And talk to a doc about any deficiencies you may have. And keep the hair you have from breaking. Don’t let it get dry, use deep conditioners. Fyi, if you only do a massage with coconut oil or any oil, you will not get the full benefit. You need to start from within your body. Trust me, I tried doing only one and I got a few results, however doing this, my hair grows .4 inches every 2 weeks so that is almost an inch a month. Ladies, get your health on!

Can someone please help me. I have bad psoriasis build up on my scalp. Some shots are ok and some are really bad. It’s big clumps of dry skin built up on my scalp. I have used everything from tea tree oil to a newborn cradle cap shampoo. I put tea tree oil in my hair once a month and leave it in for 30 mins then take a medal lice comb and scrape my scalp. After I am done my scalp is usually do irritated I can’t touch it and bleeding in spots. I have tried everything and now I am bald in spots. Thinning hair does not run in my family at all so no reason for me to be going bald at age 30 I need help. My hair was always BEAUTIFUL and thick until I had my child two yrs ago and this popped up on my scalp. I’ll take any suggestions please
Some other causes of hair loss in women can be syphilis, autoimmune disorders, chemotherapy, hair shaft abnormalities, etc. A proper diagnosis by a doctor will help you identify the reason behind your hair loss.
Fenugreek, also known as methi, is highly effective in treating hair loss. Fenugreek seeds contain hormone antecedents that enhance hair growth and help rebuild hair follicles. They also contain substances that stimulate hair growth.
The first step that you can take to reduce hair loss is to massage your scalp with appropriate hair oil. Proper hair and scalp massage will increase blood flow to the hair follicles, condition the scalp, and enhance the strength of your hair’s roots. It will also promote relaxation and reduce feelings of stress.
