I’m 63, and 18 mos ago had a radical prostatectomy. About 12 mos before that I began losing hair, and began using Minoxidil, which I stopped when my prostate cancer was diagnosed. I continue to lose hair, even though I am now cancer free and over the “shock” period. My hair is very fine. I am not taking any medications, and regularly take a multivitamin, selenium, vit.D and Glucosamine.
I only wash my hair with baby shampoo. What can I do to slow down/stop/reverse hair loss?
You might try finasteride 1mg dose daily (with your doctor’s approval of course) and restart the minoxidil. Withdrawal of minoxidil (when it has been working well) will cause hair loss (or to be more clear, the loss of all benefits you received). You are to be congratulated for beating the prostate cancer.
