Hi. Please advise - I am 32 years old (woman) and I think I am balding. My hair at the top has become very thin. There are shiny patches where it looks like there are no roots at all for the hair to grow. My mother was bald by the time she was 40. Am I balding? Is there a way to treat it (other than implants).

Hallo Balding
Minoxidil lotion helps for female hairloss but you will need a prescription and you will need to use it continuously. Just check your thyroid and esterogen levels too?
