Watching your hair go down the drain -- literally? Find out what's normal, what's not, and what you can do about it
According to hair loss specialist Dr. Alan Bauman, this type of hair loss can't be cured with hormone replacement alone. "Most women benefit from a combination of pharmaceutical and lifestyle changes, but results are always proportional to the patient's level of discipline." Bauman suggests treatments and ingredients "that protect and enhance hair follicles," such as compounded topical minoxidil, found in Keranique, $30, a hair regrowth treatment designed specifically for women, Formula 82M, platelet-rich plasma injections, Bimatoprost (the active ingredient in Latisse), low-level laser therapy. He's also a fan of nutritional supplements like Viviscal, $49.99, and pharmaceutical grade biotin.
