I have tried different things with no success.  Nioxon did not help I tried that a few time then found out that it is not for growing hair back it is only used to make it thicker.  I am hoping to find a natural way to grow it back without using any chemicals.  Please help I would love to have my hair back. Thanks

    I had thinning hair diagnosed as alopecia for 8 years and I have done EVERYTHING to make it grow except injections in the scalp which I have read can leave scarring to no avail.   NOTHING has worked and while I get short spurts of growth, in the last month it is coming out in handsful.    I've used vitamins, minerals, rubs, "miracle" cures, melatonin, coconut oil, rogaine, and the list goes on and on.   ANY ONE with a viable suggestion is welcome to send or reply to this message.    Luckily I have found a nice wig or two and it helps when i leave but living daily life sure sucks with a bald head.

    I have fine/thinning hair. I do a combination of things to keep it thicker. One is to use the Nixion just to keep the appearence thicker, two is to take biotin, three is to eat protein and fish. Since I started this my hair has had some regrowth and looks healthier. Breakage is fine hair's enemy and using a hair mask along with using argon or morrocan oil at the ends has also helped with the breakage. You may not have the head of hair you had when younger, it is all part of aging so work with what you have still and build on it.

    I have thinning from age and thyroid issues. I too eat a healthy diet of meat protein and vegetables. For a couple of months now, I've been using Aveda's Invati line, especially the scalp revitalizer, it really seems to help.  I have a bathroom full of products I have tried and this one seems to work the best.

    I use a few different things for my thin hair... i use Kerastase Bain Stimuliste GL shampoo for thinning hair and i really massage the scalp during my shampooing (5 minutes) then i rinse and condition. I take a biotin siuppliment , vitamin A, C and Zinc and switched to a boar hair bristle brush. Made a huge difference. Good luck!

    I had alopecia areata in 2000 and tried everything for this. I saw about 4 doctors and 1 herbologist. No one seemed to have any direct answer for me. My younger sister got it as well and her doctor gave her the scalp shots. I went to my doctor and had them done as well and they WORKED!!!! :) My hair is thinning but I haven't had any more areata.

    I too had struggled with not only thinning hair but also adult onset acne. After being on birth control from the age of 18 to the age of 51 my doctor decided it was time for nature to take its natural course and did it ever. All the birth control hormones my body was so used to getting were wiped out of my system and replaced with HRT. NO GOOD. After being on HRT for 6 months  I could hardly look at myself in the mirror without breaking into tears. My beautiful head of hair was getting washed down the shower drain in handfuls and my complexion resembled a pubescent teenager. There wasn't a spot on my face that wasn't covered with large red bumps. So I stopped the HRT and got myself to a dermatologist who in turn saved my life. For some menopausal women we can get what is referred to as Androgenic  Alopecia. That's too many male hormones in plan english. He prescribed 100 mg of Spironolactone which is a blood pressure medication used in for this condition. Within 24 hours my complexion cleared up and within 6 months my hair was showing signs of recovery. You have to be patient and you need to talk to a doctor about whether this treatment is right for you depending on what may be the root cause of your thinning hair. It wouldn't hurt to ask.

    Try ACell + PRP--new stem cell treatment available at several hair re-growth physicians' offices.  It really works!  It did for me!  It helped almost before I walked out of the office--saw decidedly new hair and strengthened existing hair within 2-3 weeks.

    I have read that MSM supplements help reduce hair fall, and castor oil scalp treatments encourage new growth.  Also Rooibos tea both drinking it and applying it to hair/scalp is supposded to help.  I hope you get success in growing more hair.  It breaks my heart when I see mine in the shower drain :(

    Our 7 year old daughter has been suffering with alopecia for the past 3 years, since a tornado hit our town, the trauma caused the alopecia to surface.

    She has had the scalp injections with great success.  Depending upon the degree of hair loss this is a great option.  While successful, new areas develop and require shots.  Her percentage of areas requiring treatment increased to where she was referred to a Alopecia Specialist who has discontinued the shots and put her on a medicated shampoo that you apply to dry scalp, leave for 15 minutes and then shampoo.  I would note that they specifically advised to not apply conditioner on the scalp, just hair, to prevent clogging the pores we are attempting to open.  There are treatments available that have been successful in treatment of Alopecia. They require continued maintenance as new areas develop.  There is no cure at this time.

    Do you have a good and diet and nutrition plan?  Vitamins are a must when it comes to our hair.  They are the life source for the papilla of the hair.  That is the bottom of the shaft that causes the hair to grow.  I personally am taking a medication right now that causes hair loss.  I am only in my first month.  I have lost no hair just the normal amount.  A normal person sheds about 10-20 starands of hair a day.  I take a hair, skin and nails vitamin by SuperBionics, it is sold at GNC stores and online at GNC.com.  I take two instead of one three times a day and is has been working.  I also use Vitaress Biotin hair system by Nexxus.  The vitamins-$15-20 for 75 and the Vitatress system costed me about $48.  It has 3 steps though.  Good luck.

    One important thing I forgot mention DO NOT use any hair products with alcohol in them.  And take fish oil.  But make sure it has 5000 mg of EPA and DHA.  And make sure it has mackerel and sardine fish oil.  These fish are loaded with omegas our bodies need.  These fish are abundant in them because they are a fish that lives in cold water oh and I forgot the most important fish salmon.  Look for these ingredients in a fish oil and remember those EPA's and DHA's and will be on the road to a healthy new you.

    Shampoo & conditioner. Bosley Revive shampoo & conditioner and treatment. You can purchase it safe for colored hair or not. Then use monixil 2% twice a day. I don't always remember twice a day but at least once a day. I can testify the Bosley stuff really works for visibly thinning hair. You will notice a significant change in hair loss. The monixil will regrow hair. It takes about two months to notice a real difference and I have only been using for 6 weeks. I took a pic of my thinning area on my head before I started using it and in a couple more weeks I'll take another and compare. I get these products online and I pay a little more (about $50) than other.shampoos, but it's worth it to me. Thining hair is scary. Good luck.

     Recently I went to a wig store because my hair is also very thin but  It always has been.I believe if your mom has thin hair you will too,that is untill I spoke to a gentlemen who specializes in thinning hair,he said to first and formost ditch your cotton pillow cases for satin one! (well who doesnt want to pampered ) Apparently thin hair breaks off in the fibers of the cotton pillow cases,who knew! The second thing is Biotin,no joke it actually will strengthen your hair and nails.Third thing, was to stop buying grocery store hair products! Use nexxus products there is very little alcohol in them and that is drying out your fine brittle hair! Now I never relized these simple changes can help your hair be healthier.I also have been told to use Rogain for ladies ,I am just not sure I want those chemicals in my body yet! But I hope I have been of some help,please try this, so far my hair is fuller,shiner,and my nails are on there way to being harder like when i was younger. Dawn M

    I finally started taking the supplement "Hair, Skin & Nails" that my hairdresser kept recommending. Three or four months later I needed to get a hair cut because I had fresh hair poking out from under my hair all over my scalp. It was kind of comical, but exciting. In addition to that, my hair is regaining the color it had in my youth. My skin is also improving. I have hyperkeratosis, so bumpy skin, but now the skin on my back is smooth and my arms and legs are getting smoother. I haven't had smooth skin since before puberty! I don't know if the brand matters. I am using "Spring Valley" "Hair, Skin & Nails Plus Biotin 1000mcg Collagen Support" If you are taking vitamins, I'd talk to your doc. The Hairdresser's Doc said not to take other vitamins, as this one is complete and you can overdose on some vitamins.

    I have tried so many crazy (and I mean INSANE) "tricks" to try to get my hair to grow. Some were temporary, and once I stopped, the hair fell out again. The best thing I've ever done is follow some advice from a GREAT hairstylist. Do yourself a favor and check out killerstrands.com; you won't be sorry. They have this 10,000 Heads hair regemin that works, even if you can't follow every single step religiously.

    I have had way too many hair mishaps, and although my hair would grow, it also continued to thin. So I was left with long, fine, fragile, and just plain sparse hair. Who wants that? No wonder so many women feel compelled to cut their hair off once they start aging. The aging process alone can be hard on the hair-- nevermind all the abuse we put our hair through.

    Check out the site! I know it will help.

    Get your thyroid checked.  I've lost at least half my hair due to hypothyroid.  When I got diagnosed and started getting treatment, my hair grew back quickly....also my thinning eyebrows.  One sign of hypothyroid is the last 1/3rd of your eyebrows go away, but there are about 52 hypothyroid related health problems....Get it checked!!

    Rooibos tea is red tea from South Africa, although I've read it can also be processed to be green, it's usually red. You should be able to find some variety of it in most tea sections of grocery stores, and definitely in specialty/health food stores. A lot of coffee places are stocking it now too. It's actually really good in lattes with almond milk. The reason I wanted to answer your question is because I've been drinking red tea lattes with almond milk and stevia lately after switching off coffee for a while. :)

    My hair started thinning when I was 44 and continued for almost 4 years.  As soon as I noticed it, I went to see a dermatologist, who did nothing, and then I went to see an endocrinologist who specialized in female hair loss.  He diagnosed me with androgenic alopecia and put me on spironolactone, a blood pressure medication (a diuretic), as another poster mentioned, which has the secondary effect of neutralizing testosterone in your system.  In my case, he believed hypothyroidism and falling estrogen levels were the cause (throwing off the balance of estrogen to testosterone).  He put me on thryoid medication and although I was already taking birth control pills, he changed the brand/type I was on because some b/c pills mimic testosterone in the system, and he also had me take them continuously, coming off of them for only a few days every six months, in order to keep the estrogen levels in my system more consistent.  At first, there didn't seem to be much improvement, and so he added Propecia (which is usually not prescribed for women, especially if you plan to get pregnant), but after six months of no improvement, I decided to stop taking it since I didn't really feel comfortable taking it in the first place.  He raised the dosage of the Spironolactone from 100 mg to 200 mg/day and after about a year on that dosage, I started to see less hair in my brush and in the drain.  Within 2 years, my hair loss was almost back to what would be considered normal, and after 3 years, I stopped the Spironolactone altogether.  While going through the medical side of treatment, I was also supporting hair regrowth by taking vitamins for hair, not subjecting my hair to any chemical treatments, and using shampoos/conditioners that helped make my hair appear a little thicker, along with improving my diet, exercising and trying to minimize stress.  The journey through that 4 years was up and down...things would improve and then get worse again--the doctor warned me that hair loss is cyclical--but eventually, it evened out and stayed fairly stable.  Today, at 53, even after stopping the b/c pills and going through menopause, my hair looks pretty good, the thin spots have filled in and I'm able to color it and wear ponytails again.  BTW, my sister has had alopecia areata and was successfully treated with scalp injections, although the hair that has grown back is very fine and a different texture from the rest of her hair.  For women, hair loss can be devastating.  I wish everyone the best in finding a treatment that works for them.

    I started to lose my hair at age 12 when I started my menstral cycles. I later found out I have PCOS which was the reason it started then. I had it continue to fall out for years. At one point, I even wore a wig and that was in my early 30's (I am only 36 now.) I had been using Nioxin it had had stopped the hair from falling out, but I never really had regrowth from it. Then it stopped working all together. That was when a little over 2 years ago my friend and hairdresser at the time recommended Bosley Professional Products. I believe it was new at the time. So I started to use it. I noticed a big difference right away! Last year, I had sugery in May and my hair fell out big time. In September 2012 I found out I had hypothyroid so the combination of surgery and thyroid really made my hair fall out. When I looked into the mirror all I could see was scalp on the crown of my head. Today, even afte another surgery and health problems, I see more hair than scalp. It does take time and patience, but by using the Bosley Revive Starter Pack for Visibly Thinning / Color-Treated Hair found here http://www.amazon.com/Bosley-Starter-Visibly-Thinning-Color-Treated/dp/B0038TN5KW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1364313060&sr=8-2&keywords=bosley or by a hairstylist. You can't go into a hair care store and buy it unless you are a professional cosmetologist. The price on the link is cheaper than you can get it from a cosmetologist. I am going to buy the vitamins next month. While my hair is style thin I have A LOT of strong and healthy new growths. It's growing back. I have more hair than I did 8 months ago even 3 years ago. I won't stop using these products! They are so worth it! I do know biotin works, but I have a hard time taking pills due to the fact I have esophogitis - swelling in my throat.

    my daughter has had the same problem for the last 4 years or so. She has been seen by an endocrinologist as well as a dermatologist. The diagnosis was male baldness, she was put on contraceptives, spironolactone, some kind of hormones and lately the doctor recommended that she started using rogaine for men 4% the foam kind. This is the one women can use too. 2% is not strong enough. She has been using it for the past 4 months and her hair has started slowly, very slowly coming back. She lost almost 75% of her hair, so we  know for sure it is working slowly  but working, she went from a ponytail of almost 2"in diameter  to a ponytail of about 1/4 ". I will keep you posted.

    you must give yourself 6 MONTH to a year. Maybe you are stressed. You must relax. Massaging the scalp help on the way. As much as u can dont use any man made chemicals to your hair exept for your shampoo and conditioner. You must use herbal oil that could help you. Lastly, patienly wait so that your hair grows. When I was 17,  I  was under stress due to my final year examination. so my hair was thinning and was fallingFrown. Few years after that my hair did grow healty. I also believe fish oil-cord liver oil also helps as it has Omega 3 in it and helps hair grow healthy and shiny. Dont always think about your hair. be busy in other things. Hope all the best for you.

    When I wanted to grow my hair back was a healthier less invasive product as well. Most of the shampoos I found had harmful chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, and synthetic fragrances. All of which do NOTHING for my hair but harm them and hinder growth! I found out about Regenepure DR from a co-worker. Not only does it not have any chemicals it has ketoconazole which helps stimulate the scalp for hair growth. It super gentle on my hair and I have seen signs of growth after 5 months. I use it with their thickening shampoo they have Regenepure NT. They are pretty much the best hair products I've used so far. If you choose to try it out I would suggest washing every other day and using a sulfate free conditioner afterwards, preferably one with Biotin or Argan Oil. They add moisture and strength to the hair . Hope my experiences help you!

    I was facing a similar issue, so I ended up buying this shampoo called Regenepure. My friend used it and said it was good, so I decided to give it a shot. I used the Regenepure DR and Precision Spray products together. One is like a shampoo, and the other is a minoxidil spray. I have been using it for about a month and see a significant difference in hair thickness on the top of my head. A little growth has started too. The DR doesn't have any sulfates or bad ingredients, and my scalp is sensitive, so this is really important for me. I saw it here: http://www.hairlosslabs.com/ Hope this helps! Good luck with your problem and stay positive!
