I'm getting worried and worried everyday, every time I see my hair are falling. Maybe sign of old age and maybe it's hereditary. Both my parents have thin hair when they got old, that's why I worry too much. Aside from that I been through lots of birth surgery that can cause hair fall through anesthesia. I also known that I have some factor why I have falling hair which is natural in my system. I'm jealousto those who have thick hair even when they are old, Can you help me with this, did anyone try to make their hair thick? A hair grower of anything that I can try on. Are you worried too in lots of falling hair everyday? Your share mylotters....

I think there is no proof yet that using aloe vera can be a hair grower, some elders too. I have a recent topic about aloe vera and no one talks about it can be a hair grower. Thanks

I started losing my hair in my late 20's, and now I have really thin hair at the top of my head and I know as time goes by it will get worse. Thinning hair can be hereditary, and since both your parents had thinning hair it does not bode well for you. Fortunately women have many options such as wigs, hair extensions and other products for hair. I have not used any hair growers, because too my knowledge most of them are just gimmicks.

Maybe you shouldn't worry too much. I think the main reason why your hair keeps getting thinner is because you think about it too much. In short, you stress yourself over something which is inevitable. What you could do is cut your hair short and eat lots and lots of vegetable, especially malunggay which i heard is good for the hair.

First, I recommend a daily vitamin. And then I recommend going to the store and buying Biotin. It's in the vitamin aisle. It helps regrow hair and nails. My sister uses it and she has noticed her hair has thickened and stopped falling out. Also, if you can afford Rogaine, if they sell it where you are, that helps too. It's expensive, but if you can afford it, and keep using it while it starts to work, I think you'll be happier.

Hi ambie I'm still looking for Biotin here in our local market, most of that I've seen before are imported one that I have to order online. Rogaine maybe it is like Regroe It's too much expensive and I can't afford. Thanks

I have thick hair running in my family so I don't have this worry but can only imagine how distressing it must be. I see alot of Mylot discussions started on this very subject. I did find an interesting article with some statistics you might find interesting (http://www.hairloss-in-women.com/) and www.webmd.com is very helpful as well. One of the major reasons for hair loss besides the heredity is stress. Good lcuk to you.

Thanks celticeagle, I saw that discussion too, it's just a coincidence the time we make the discussion is almost the same. Only it shows that many of us here are worried about their hair. I'm glad that you don't have problems with it I saw lots of friends too in my same age that maintain there thick hair. Thanks for sharing that site, I will try to read and maybe it makes a lot of help.

I wasn't being negative about seeing another discussion of the same subject. Just interesting that several are having this same problem. If you scan down quite a ways on that article it shows the vitamins needs for good hair growth and all natural remedies. I think the women of the 1800's who had to give their hair 100 strokes each night were smart. Massaging the scalp helps too. I used to hear when younger that laying on your back on your bed with your head hanging over and massaging that way is supposed to help. I used to do all of that.

There was a time earlier when my hair is falling at times and I became worried about it. I think that the top reason is how we care for ourselves. If we use all the commercial shampoo that's out there, chances are that we really be a candidate for falling hair. I come to know an organic shampoo two years ago and I never had a problem about falling hair again. Even my kids' hair thickens. No more dandruff as I used to have too. It is called the organic "Ganozhi Shampoo." Have you tried this?

That's what I'm thinking of harsh chemicals really damage our hair and because of low production of new hair that's why they become thin. I never heard that before, is it available in the market?

Yes it is available in more than 100 branches nationwide and more than 150 countries worldwide. For discounts, you can use my code number.

i have thick hair, always have and up until this time, i see my mom have thick hair too and she is already 60 yo with minimal white hairs too. =) she does not look her age because of her hair. but i think it really has something to do with genetics all right...Anyway, there are shampoos that help you grow hair more than usual... find it in the label with vitamin e especially. i remember a group of our college friends before and they did a study and that they found out that the hair using the said shampoo grew faster than other hair in the study that was using shampoo without vitamin e. Maybe also i think you should stop worrying now... stress and too much worrying will actually even add more to your falling hair...

My problem is opposite with yours. I have thick hair and I wanted it to be thin even just a little although I also have hair fall every time I wash my hair its as if my hair grows back everything overnight. You may try to use organic shampoos for strengthening the hair or supplements for the hair. You can check it out online there's a lot of solutions that may help you. I hope you can find the best solution for your hair fall problem since not one remedy is good for everyone we have.

You need to worry less so you don't be stressed. Stress will make your hail fall more. Also, moisturize and massage your scalp because a healthy scalp produce healthy hair. Put shampoo on hair not into your scalp and put only enough to wash your hair. Lastly, eat healthy and have enough sleep. :)

I got hair lost too after gave birth but hubby told me not to worry too much because worry lead stress that could make it get worser. I feel since I stopped being worry too much my hair don't fall that much no more. I see it stars grow back. So, I think you should not worry too much too, it will grow back. ;-)

there are lots of conditions that cause hair to fall out. Poor nutrition, thyroid problems, stress, anxiety, yes, heredity. Take a good multi vitamin. Check into other nutritional supplements. Talk to your doctor. I use henna on my hair, it coats it so it seems thicker as well. good luck Lynboobsy, but stop worrying.

When I was 20-something I had a scare like that, but I started eating better food and getting healthier and that stopped it. Be sure to get enough B-vitamins (in green leafy vegetables) and all around good nutrition and drink lots of water, as that might help. Is is also important not to have a lot of bad stress, right? Many years ago when I lived on a farm if any of the farm animals had thin hair or fur we would feed them raw eggs. In fact, we ate raw eggs ourselves. But now we are encouraged not to do that because of possible health risks from bad bacteria. In those days we grew our own chickens and ate fresh eggs from our own farm. I still miss the wonderful "shakes" we used to make by mixing a few raw eggs, a little vanilla, some honey, and milk.

How old are you? How long ago did you give birth or had an anesthesia? If it comes to giving birth and anesthesia the lost hair (mine was there on the pillow in bunches) has to be back/over at about 1.5-2 years time. It's also normal that if you brush your hair you loose hair as well, but it's not normal if you can pull it out easily. You say both your parents have thin hair. I like to know what you mean by that. Is the hair structure very fine? Do you have very fine hair and less as well? Might be your hair is very fine but you still have a lot of hair but the way it's planted on your head is not straigth up but it covers eachother. That makes it look thinner as it is. If this is the case (ask a good hairdresser) you can easily get a lot of hair by taking some waves (do go to a good hairdresser so they won't break your hair). Also a lack of female hormones can be the reason of losing a lot of hair. If there is any reason you think this is the case go see a doctor so you get some extra female hormones.

I'm 40, and I give birth for two child and 2 miscarriage. I don't brush my hair so often, I have wavy, fine and hair less as well. Both of my parents are alike, my father losses his hair at 50's and my mom is the same. Your right since I have wavy hair it covers each other but still it can easily saw the scalp when I move, that's why I'm so worried. Hmm maybe I will take your advice I will try to ask my doctor about it. Thanks

i think you should eat many type of food to avoid lacking of vitamins. You also can buy "multiflorous knootweed" and drink it as drink a tea daily. For sure, after a while, your hair will be thicker. Good luck1

This is one problem of women after giving birth. maybe not everyone, but mostly. I also have same problem with yours and it takes time for me to fix my hair to make sure that my hair is evenly spread (duh!!!) My mom has think hair and I guess I got it from her, because all my siblings have thick hairs which they got from our father. I also have anesthesia during giving birth since all my 3 kids are born thru c/s op. Huhuhu...too bad for us

There are a lot of products out there now for thinning hair. I have heard that some of them work really good. Rogaine has been around forever and I have known people that swear by it. There are also vitamin supplements that you could try that are for hair and nails.

Worrying over falling of hair ...it would only add up to your condition losing more of it. Loss of hair in fact could be managed in a psychological vein.If there is dandruff which is causing loss of much hair, it has to be checked. There are quite a number of genuine preparations to check hair loss in Ayurvedic regimen. Some of medicated oils on massaging over the scalp could check fall of hair and result in healthy hair follicles.
