very helpful. I have been thinning in the crown area for the last few years and have done everything to try to promote hair growth. I dont have any medical problems and no one in my family that I know of has this problem. I dont do all of the things that are typical to hair loss. This is one of the reasons I chose to go natural also. I have been transitioning for 6 months and I have seen some improvement but nothing drastic. I will definitely have to look further into seeking a specialist. Thank u Nikki for shedding some light on this common problem. 8-)

Consider revisiting your thyroid levels. I read a book "Carved In Sand" that discusses how doctors can fail to detect a problem because your results fall in the traditionally accepted range.
Also, sometimes its stress (and sadly thinning hair and waiting for the situation to turn around adds even more stress).
I hope you get a resolution soon.

As a person who has been diagnosed with scarring alopecia, I am just doing everything I can to maintain the hair I have. Since I have been transistioning (12 months), the shedding has almost stopped. I am still thin at the crown but I can definately see a difference in my hair. Yes, it is very frustrating when people comment on how thin my hair has become but, I cannot focus on that, because stress only adds to the hair loss. I educate myself, and keep my hair goals realistic.

This is very interesting and informative to read about. I experienced hair loss on the entire left side of my head two years ago. I was devastated! I always had such great hair that i took care of. The hair loss i assume was a result of a relaxer being left in too long at the salon and stress. I went to a dermatologist and was told that there was nothing they could do i just had to let it fall out - WTH??? At that point me and my Mom decided that we was going to find something to help my hair grown back. We search and found the products by the brand Profectiv called Growth Renew. I used the whole line of products and kept the little hair I did have braided and I wore wigs until it grew back. It grew back to a nice length where I could wear a wrap in 6 months! I swear by this product for anyone experiencing hair loss or bad breakage.

Great Post. I have a large bald spot on my right side as well as thinning edges in the front. I attribute it to relaxers and pulling my hair into tight ponytails for years. I can cover it pretty well but I can't wear it all the way back without a headband or gelling it and combing some hair over it. This gives me some hope - Maybe there is soemthing that can be done. I will look into the Protectiv products and seeing a specialist. Thanks!
