Try to take supplement called biotin, it helps for growing hair and nails. And also don't shower hot or warm water coz it opens up the pores in the scalp so the hair easily detached from the head. Try cold shower, gives you healthy hair, skin, and good mood.

As a woman who is bald, can I give a few suggestions?

First of all, is it alopecia (hair loss for no reason, it's actually an autoimmune disorder), or is she pulling it out herself?

Second, does she show any signs of having a thyroid or menstrual disorder? Hypothyroidism and Polycystic Ovarian Disorder can cause excess hair growth in areas of the body where women typically don't want hair, but at the same time can cause the hair on the scalp to grow thin. Some symptoms are being overweight despite having a reasonably good diet and exercise habits, not having a lot of energy, etc. The problem with the hair may be a side effect of one or both of those disorders, and these disorders can be treated.

Second, wigs or half wigs can be purchased. The half wigs are actually pretty natural looking and clip into your own hair in a way where most people wouldn't notice you're wearing a wig. I don't have enough hair even for that, so I wear wigs, though I bet you couldn't tell it from my avatar. Until her treatment is successful she might have to resort to that. I've been wearing them daily for 14 years now. most people haven't even guessed.

I knew a girl with alopecia. She wore a bandanna thing, but I think I'd just go with a wig. My Auntie recently lost all her hair to chemo, and got a wig that looks 100% like her original hair.

Product-wise, you could try Minoxidil. I have 2 60ml bottles here you can have for free if you pay postage. I bought it to try to combat my increasing male pattern baldness, but then realised "who cares?" Easier for a male though... but still not easy when you're a young male.

I've heard that this stuff will shed most of your remaining hair, then grow back more than you had before. The regrowth is apparently very "wirey" though.

In glamour mag. I read that rubbing coconut milk onto the scalp, then leaving it on for an hour or so helps the hair grow thicker and faster. Sounds crazy but it might help.

I have alopecia (from PCOS). These supplements have been helping me a bit, but it's very, very slow. In the meantime, I'd suggest a bandana, wig, or half wig, as was mentioned.

Going to a dermatologist for this would be the best idea - a combination of Spironolactone (200mg per day) and a progesterone/estrogen pill (birth control) could potentially help. Rogaine/Minoxidil products can/do work for some people so she should give it a try. Although once you start using those products, you'll have to use them for the rest of your life - once you stop, the hair it helped you grow back will fall out.

Yes, first you want to suggest to her to see a physician to be worked up for any medical condition that is causing the alopecia (hair loss). There could be a more serious issue underlying with worse consequences than the manifestation of hair loss. If there is a condition found that is causing the hair loss, the physician should be able to provide treatment, if there is a treatment available and hopefully the hair would grow back. Also, there are products such as rogaine out there (not sure if that stuff works or not, I've just seen the commercials).

But she should be checked out medically first.

I beg to differ. I am married, and my man knew about my disorder from DAY TWO of our relationship and he STILL stuck with me!

The packets I have here say "Hair regrowth treatment for Men and Women."

For me I think it's a mix of genes, stress, and not to be crude, but too much masturbation. I've tried cutting down on the latter of late. I'm almost 30 now, so I'm not as depressed about it as when I was 25. Thanks anyway.

I've heard that taking folic acid supplements are beneficial, and have been taking it for a couple of months since I've been losing hair of late.

I don't know if reviving old threads is kosher on this forum, but here goes.

Been developing a definite male pattern baldness over the past 2 years, with it accelerating over the past six months. Thinning almost up to the top of my head in that distinctive 'M' shape.

The worst thing about hair loss is that the more I stress about it, the more seems to come out, the more I stress about it :doh It's a vicious cycle...

Trying some Saw Palmetto, Biotin, and organic shampoo to see how it goes. Propecia/Finasteride is too expensive, and I don't feel like applying Rogaine/Minoxidil twice every day while worrying that all my hair will fall out if I stop.

Might end up just shaving it all off, but I have a melon-shaped head with probably a few moles up there, so I'm very apprehensive of how it would look.
