    I am in my late 20's ( 28 and my hair is WORSE than most older ladies I see ( i mean that with respect, just stating my Androgenetic Alopecia is starting and progressing very FAST)
    I wanted to bring this subject up, WHY is it that my loss is progressing so fast? I have lost so much hair, I literally see NO ONE my age with as little hair as me.
    I wish I knew what worked, but I have a feeling nothing will, and I will be stuck with toppers the rest of my life and eventually total wigs............

    thinning gal is getting a hair transplant.

    You can read my story. I have had some success but it is a long hard road and far from over. I try to be grateful for the success I have had.

    good luck,

    thank you

    hi leg..
    do you think the laser comb is the main thing? I bought it a year ago, and returned it while i had that return period. I just started the blue spray, and nizoral shampoo. There was a segment on the news about Lasewr therapy, theres a guy ion Boson who does it, and the girl they had on tv was young,. Id rather talk to someone on here on their thoughts. What vitimins are you taking? I have a script for oral Spironolactone... i got fed up a few monthsa ago and stopped it I blammed it for making me sick, yet im still sick. Maybe i should start again.

    I am in my mid thirties. I started rogaine about 1 1/2 yrs ago, I don't see regrowth but I think it has helped maintain what I've got. I also alternate between tricomin and folligen spray...I like both of them, and I just ordered 2% nizoral, we'll see how that goes. Although I haven't seen the regrowth, I am happy right now just keeping what I've got....I have not had a dred shed in almost a year and a half. :D

    hi dee

    I updated my signature- think it is complete. MSM is 5 g, biotin is 5mg, omega 3 is about 2g.

    I do think the LC has been really really helpful but my hair had started to improve even before and when my iron was improved my hair growth accelerated so I know there are many many factors.

    Hi:

    I'm 30 and definitely feel so much older b/c of this hair disaster. I am getting a transplant in May and praying this helps put this nightmare to bed for once and for all.

    dee,

    I have had some success with my regimen (see below). By success I mean, my shedding has slowed down considerably and has been that way for about 4 months. This after over 2 years of profuse shedding. I do have some regrowth, but some of them fall out. :( I do not know what is working "best". It may be a combination of all of them. Personally, I really like the lasercomb. If nothing else, it makes me feel very pro-active when I do it and my hair always looks so much thicker afer using it. If I know I am going out for the night, I time it so that it is a "laser comb" day. I will say, I would not drop any of them at this point. I also use Toppik when I go out. It really helps hide the scalp. I'm still sick about the seeing scalp and nervous about wet hair and about the sun. But, I will say I think about it less these last few months... Good luck.

    seeme
    ps. oh, really try and stick with something once you start (unless it is making you sick) most things take a minimum of 6 months to start to work.

    My cousin used Minoxidil and had instant success.
    But I think it's possible that hairloss just runs it's course and stops as it pleases.

    from Boston

    Hi Dee,

    Just want to introduce myself to you, I'm from Boston, MA. I have been losing hair for the last 3 years (may be longer). I'm on Rogaine, Nizoral, LC , MVI, iron, and niaicin. Don't see a lot of hair growing, actually thinner than 2 years ago , but at least I think these have maintained my hair loss to around 20 hair a day.

    Need to talk, send me a message

    I know what you mean about no one having a scalp as thin as yours! I am only 24, and have had this problem for about 6 years - it became noticeable to the world when I was about 20 with see-through sides and top of scalp. I often look at older women - 50+ and there are women that are 80 with thicker hair than me....including my 83yo grandmother whom everyone used to say (including my mother) that she had abnormally thin hair - probably where I got it from, but mine is about half thickness of hers and I'm only 1/4 of her age!

    I think I managed to stabilise things on Androcur for 12mths, but then I had to continually reduce the dose due to other problems and things sped up big time mid last year. I am now on Aldactone and Nizoral and somedays I think it has settled for now, though I should still be wearing a wig but for some reason the fear of it falling off at work (teacher) makes me rather just be see through and let people draw their own conclusions - they probably think I'm dying of cancer or something. I am considreing trying the lasercomb to thicken the very fine fluff I do have left, but not sure if it has really worked for people or not....

    Good luck everyone!
