Hi, I first noticed my hair was getting thin at the crown area at the age of 28. I was really concerned and spoke to my family and they reassured me that their is nothing wrong and not to worry. Therefore I trusted my family, ignored it and got on with my life. In my early to mid 30s I started to see more thining, especially in strong light and my scalp was noticeable. I wasn't too worried and just got on with my life. I had a baby at the age of 36 and gained a little hair during pregnancy and lost the gained hair a few months after giving birth. Life was so busy I just had no time to think about hair. At the age of 39, life is more manageable and all I think about is my thining hair and very conscious of it. It drains me and i feel very sad and depressed about it. I am constantly looking at other people's hair and scared that someone will say something about my thining hair. I have been to the doctors and awaiting to get some blood tests. Although i felt the doctor didn't really care. The doctor did suggest Minoxodil from the pharmacist but can this actually work for my age and the fact that I noticed hair thing around 10 years ago. My sisters and dad have great heads of hair and my mums hair started to thin after the menopause (from age 50). I became a vegetarian at the age of 17 and one of my my sisters who is older than me also became a vegetarian at the age of 16 and has a great head of hair. I guess I am just wanting to know why do I have thin hair? and if their is anything I can do about it. I have orderd a Nioxin system and not expecting any miracles. I just don't know what to do? or what to use?. Is their any hope of getting the thickness back to my hair? Thank you for reading my post.
