I'm a 26 year old female that's been suffering from hair thinning since I was 13. I'm sure most of you have been down the path that I have...seen so many doctors, tried many products with the same result = none. My hair is thin throughout (not thin in patches or spots) but yet, still full enough to use topical shade creams/pastes to disguise the loss. I currently use Dermatch and like it well enough...just hate the mess and application process. It fools everyone I know and looks totally natural, so I'm sticking with it.
About three months ago, I gave birth to my first child. Of course, you read, hear, and are warned that the hormone side-effect to having a child is the loss of hair. I seem to be going through this...I'm shedding more than normal and have been noticing that my hair comes off more easily when I shower and brush. I don't have much to lose in the first place, so I'm starting to worry! Before it gets too extreme, I'm trying to find solutions NOW.
Can anyone give me some honest opinions on some options you've tried/are trying for products? I'm looking for ANY way to help ease my hairloss problem - currently considering wigs/extensions, etc. What are the pros and cons? Is there any company that has developed a hair piece/program that looks, wears, and feels like normal hair? I'm so green at this and don't care to spend hundreds of dollars by trial and error (what I did when I started with topical solutions).
I'm looking for something that STAYS PUT - swimming, running, sleeping, sweating, etc. and LOOKS NATURAL. Is there anything that exists or is it just wishful thinking at this point???
Thanks to all who reply - MUCH appreciated!
