I have 5 children....Dr said it's age....I have tried biotin....currently on alive vitamins...I don't straighten or curl..
pillow is full every day....really gets me down.
have tried massaging with coconut oil on scalp..with babies it does usually stop but not this time....hope urs gets better....with pregnancy we retain more hair then lose after birth..

I think Regaine (minoxidil) is the only clinically proven treatment. You can get it in Boots, but it's not cheap and you have to keep using it or you're back to square one. Maybe speak to your GP to see if it's suitable for you?

yes I looked into you say pricey thanks…NL4
worked for me,
takes months to years for hair growth tho.
Don't have documented proof.

Hi, sorry to hear about your hair loss, try plantur 39 shampoo and conditioner for fine and brittle hair. It's a bit more expensive than regular shampoos and conditioners but boots sometimes have it on offer. I use this now and again as my hair is quite fine and snaps off ☹️ But I recommended it to a friend who was going through a stressful time, her hair would fall out when she washed it and if she touched her head hair would fall out. She used it for few weeks and it really helped settle the hair loss. Worth a try to see if it works for you.

Veet is excellent for hair removal
