Thinning, breaking hair
What products have you tried that helped to thicken and grow your hair. Mine is soft, shiney and has no split ends. But I’m finding that it’s thinning out quite a bit. Does HSN have anything that works. I would appreciate any expeerience you’ve had with certain products.
No traditional hair product can fight hair thinning. You should call your doctor and ask about minoxidil or Propecia (in recent years it has been suggested for women). I don’t know anything about Propecia, but minoxidil does at least slow hair loss and bring back some hair. You can get minoxidil in any drugstore. The 2.5% strength is for women, but you can ask your doctor about this. I suggest you get the unscented variety. They sell a lot of products with minoxidil in them for much more money than the generic minoxidil, but I don’t think you get any extra benefit.
I know about minoxidil because I have alopecia areata and once had a somewhat bad attack. I have a ton of hair and so except for once it’s been easy to hide the occasional bald spot (knock wood). I’d recommend that you talk to your doctor and also take whatever steps you’d like to improve your lot cosmetically. During my one bad attack I considered a wig, but it was all grown in five months later.
P.S.: I’d like to add that you should ask your doctor and pharmacist about drug interactions if you are on any medication. Don’t just pick it up on your own without doing this. It is a topical drug, but at least a little is absorbed into the body. Better safe than sorry!
Andrew Lessman’s Healthy Hair Skin and Nails. I started only taking one, then to two per day. Makes a difference. Try for at least one month-I think you will notice a difference. Two is best. He will be on HSN in October—you will get free shipping I believe if not a product deal.
Good information, FaireMaiden … And, your hair is Beautiful!
Saturday, September 26-2015… ITZME— It sounds very much to me like you need a ‘Protein Pack’ treatment. My recommendation in this regard is ‘Emergencee’ by Nexxus. I have hair down to my tush and have spent a lot of time dealing with ‘hair’ issues over the years. ‘Emergencee’ is what I use to keep my hair strong, (i.e. not breaking, shedding, etc).
I gave a very full explanation of all this, (what’s going on with one’s hair, and how to use the product), in my Review over on Amazon; and, to date, have 224 positive responses out of 231. Type in Amazon’s Search Bar ‘Nexxus Emergencee’. A page will come up with all the different Nexxus products. Click on the one that says, Nexxus Emergencee Restorative Strength Conditioning Treatment 3.3 Ounce May 1, 2006, (I believe it’s the second choice offered on the page). The picture of it is this—>
My Review is called ‘It’s All In The Details– HOW TO USE THIS STUFF’ by FaireMaiden, and is the first Review shown when you scroll down to the bottom of the page where the Reviews begin.
Don’t be put off by the price shown on the page… you can get this stuff at any drug store for around $15-bucks.
Good luck, lass…
