Women with Hair Loss

Can You Suggest the Best Treatment for My Female Hair Loss?

Question:

I'm a woman facing a problem with thinning hair and I am unable to make any hairstyle. Please suggest some tips for regrowing hair. Are hair extensions a proper solution for my problem?

Answer:

There are a number of causes of female hair loss. Have you consulted with a dermatologist? If not, I suggest starting there. If your hair loss is genetic, you may find that Rogaine (minoxidil) helps.

I do not recommend hair extensions as they can lead to a condition known as traction alopecia if applied incorrectly and permanent damage can occur.

Depending upon the cause of your thinning hair, the hair growth may return on its own in time. In the meantime, you can make your hair appear fuller with the use of hair loss concealers like Toppik, Nanogen and DermMatch.
