Exactly, the major reason of hair loss in men and women is due to deficiency of essential nutrients like protein or elements like sulfur, iron, and suchlike Thus hair loss prevention can be done either by intake of these essential elements or with the I’d say in case my hair was not as coarse as it’s it will look as thin as my mother’s was. My hair loss seemed to begin with menopause at age 50, mostly on top, stringy bangs now. With all that said… My father had thick curly hair but very bald at a very young age. It mostly helps nails, Rogaine has not helped, I’m quite sure I take vitamin B12. I’m sure it sounds familiar. Never delay or disregard seeking professional medical advice from your physician and similar qualified health provider because of something you have read on MedicineNet. My mother has very thin hair from Swedish side of family.

Now I am in my early 40s. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1 800 FDA 1088. Recently I saw small patches of hair ‘regrowing’ on different places on my head. In the past decade I have tried different products to stop my hair loss and to regrow hair but nothing worked. It got me little excited. It didn’t work either. We should see if what I am doing now really works. Know what guys, I kept reading more on it and changing and mixing stuff, since I was already in the mindset of trying natural way.
For topical application I have used aloe vera, olive oil, lavender oil, argon oil, castor oil, cayenne pepper treatment.
For instance, miracle’s nape and temple growth and strengthening cream, nada, the hair is still falling, we do not have advanced technology here in Africa for the various hair tests but many of us know that there is no bald person in both my families. Minoxidil on my temple and nape areas for over a year and all the hair grew back. Because the baldness is spreading to the back, 3 to 4months of not using this product I lost all my hair on the front and back, I get the feeling more than 200 hair falls off any day.
My hair loss began in my 20s and has continued to this time.
The daily loss is far above 100 to 150, the normal loss level. My hair loss is from all areas of my scalp even low on the back of my neck. Of course, recent blood work and scalp biopsy reveals no negative conditions yet my hair continues to fall out at greater and greater rates. My hair loss continues to get worse, much thinner hair, a lot more hair loss any wash, I have no bald spot. Taking 1 mg finasteride daily for one year now has shown no improvement really. Oftentimes the recent scalp biopsy stated the features of androgenic alopecia not seen nor telogen effluvium are not seen, yet my hair continues to get thinner and thinner.
