Hair Loss
Hi there

I am a 21 year old female and i'm suffering from hair loss.I had very thick and curly hair when i was younger (infancy-mid teens) but then my hair just started dropping. I used lots of products, such as alphosol shampoo and conditioners,even took the tablets,went on a contraception,now i'm taking biotin but nothing seems to be helping.I really i'm scared of getting bold.

Please could you advise on medication.

Many Thanks

Dear Val
Please let your doctor check for thyroid abnormalities, iron levels. Stress and hormonal changes like after a pregnancy can also let your hair fall out.
