“I am a 34 year old female with hair loss. I have been suffering from thinning hair for about 4 years. I have used Minoxidil for 2 years, I read about lots of different alternative treatments, but are there any other alternatives that really work? I hate the idea of putting this on my scalp for the rest of my life. I hate this product and do not want to be dependant on a prescription drug. Is there any real alternative?”
You may be thinking that at the age of 34 it is very unusual to have thinning hair. Unfortunately, this is not the case. There are as many women with hair thinning problems as men, but women very rarely go bald like men. It may surprise you to know, too, that hair loss in very young women is rampant and on the increase. By very young, I mean late teens and early twenties. However, this does not answer your question.
There is always a reason for hair thinning and the most important way to counteract it is to correctly diagnose the cause or as in most cases the causes of the thinning. The causes vary enormously from low iron levels, insufficient proteins in your diet, hormonal effects or thyroid anomalies, menopause, PCOS just to mention a few.
Once the causes has been established, the action you should take will be quite straightforward. In your case, you are on Minoxidil, which sometimes stablises the thinning, but not always. The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.
