Hi, I am 20 years old and am a very healthy, sporty person. About 2 years ago I noticed my hair was thinning out and on the pillow in the morning for example. I could see hairs which were of a noticeable amount. Recently, the problem has become worse, styling my hair, showering, sleeping, and combing my hands through my hair, all result in hairs falling on the floor or being left in my hand. I have been to the doctor about this problem, had blood tests for thyroid problems and all came back negative (sadly I wanted it to be positive so there was something to cure). I am really worried. What can I do? Surely there is medication or something to restart or help with hair growth, as my hair is gradually becoming thinner and thinner, in the shower, when I look in the mirror, it really scares me as the wet hair shows how thin areas are.
Hair loss can be caused by any number of conditions. If you already had a blood test that came back negative, it could be male pattern baldness. Even when it is a permanent situation, exist medications and hair care products that could be use to slow the hair loss process. It could be advised to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist or hair specialist for an evaluation. We recommend Minoxidil 5% for male pattern baldness because it stimulates the anagen phase and gives strength and thickness to your hairs and Hair Cycle care products. You could consider using Rogaine Foam 5% that does not contain alcohol. It does evaporate right away without the grease effects. You can use it twice per day.
