I'm going bald! Nah, it's not that bad, but it is getting noticeably thinner. Bunches of hair falls out every time I shampoo. Does it grow back? Do I need to use Nizoral or something?

No, it doesn't grow back.

You can take estrogen or vitamins. Otherwise, cut your hair short or get a piece.

You might want to get your thyroid levels checked.

A good physical check up is in order. Hair lost comes with the years for both men and women. But sometimes, it is something that is lacking in the diet or perhaps, the thyroid. If it is correctible, the sooner you find out about the cause and do something, the easier it will be.

BUT, if it is just an aging thing.....well, been there, done that, and survived!

Yeah, get to the doc, make sure the hair loss is not just a symptom of something more sinister.

If it's "simple" hair loss, talk with your doc, maybe talk with a dermatologist, I think they will agree that women's Rogaine may help. Nizoral is not likely to hurt anything.

You can consider hormone replacement; talk that over with your doc - many plus and minus factors.

Default You are what you eat !

I used to have very long, very THICK, curly/wavy hair and during the peri-menopause time I noticed more hair falling out when I brushed - so I went to see my primary physician. He really did not give me any answer other than menopause.

Anyway, I survived the following years without taking drugs (my choice) and have maintained my hair quite short in the last ten years. It is still healthy and thick!

IMHO the best way to maintain healthy hair - and good health in general is to avoid drugs and keep your immune system at its optimal strength by eating right - and a daily dose of flaxseed oil !

No,Do just follow these.

It is important to eat healthy foods and ensure that your body is getting the vitamins and minerals that it needs. Often times the body will show poor health in the hair follicles and finger nails before and actual illness is detected. While it is important to get enough of the right nutrients, it is just as important not to get too much of any one type of vitamin. For example, too much of vitamins A and E, have been linked to hair loss.

Take care

Lily, maybe check out a health food store and ask about silica and biotin .. or check out some articles on the internet.

Here's one site with some info on silica and iodine deficiency causing hair loss, and lists foods which can help replace helpful nutrients.
