10 Reasons Your Hair Is Thinning
Watching your hair go down the drain -- literally? Find out what's normal, what's not, and what you can do about it
Dr. Robert Leonard, chief surgeon and founder of Leonard Hair Transplant Associates, suggests seeking the services of a hair restoration specialist for the best results. "They can look back in your family tree on both sides to help predict the extent of hair loss -- it's very common to have mothers, aunts, or grandmothers with thinning hair, even if it occurred at a much later age than the woman with the concern."
From there, a specialist can reccomend the best plan of action for you to take. Standby medications like Rogaine and Propecia are helpful, though only temporary. According to Marotta, hair restoration surgery is "still the best and only way to fully reverse hair loss."
