My Wife Is Losing Hair and I Want to Cure It!
My wife is suffering from thinning hair from last 3 years, now one can see the scalp in front. However, she has got good long hair and the hair density is reasonably good at the back. But it is thinning in front which is really a matter of concern. Earlier she used lot of Richfeel products but none of them was helpful. Richfeel, is one of the company from India specialized in curing hair related issues.
Currently, one of the local dermatologist has suggested her Ducray’s Neoptide along with novophane plus tablets. I hope that this will work. It has been 45 days she is using those. I hope it wont have negative impact which lead to further hair loss.
I am really worried and am ready to take her to any part of this world to get the best hair of her dreams. Please suggest me the best treatment for her, do you think hair transplant is too early and that should be the last option to be considered. She is 27 now. I have also got her laser comb from hairmax, will it be helpful in any case.
I am so worried, because she is only 27 and I am really afraid that in 10 years time she will lose all her hair.
One good hope I can see is that she has got long hair and hope that with advance oil and medication she could easily grow her or make her hair thick on front side. Moreover, her mother has also got thin hair but not so thin like my wife. In fact my wife’s mother hair were good when she was 27 but my wife problem of hair loss has become serious now at this early age. Is it heredity that she is losing hair so early. Is it curable?? I hope there are no side effect of the medicines and lotions, especially in women we have to see when it comes to pregnancy and fertility related issues.
Please guide me.
We’ve written briefly about the Richfeel Anagrow product before, which apparently contains plant stem cells. Unfortunately, there is no clinical science to back up their claims. You said that this company specializes in “curing hair related issues”, but there is no cure for hair loss that I know of.
I can tell that you’re trying to help your wife, but you’re throwing money at a problem that is not as simple to fix as you’re hoping. The LaserComb is unlikely to do much, if anything, for her hair loss. The only FDA approved medication for treating female hair loss is minoxidil (Rogaine/Regaine), and the collection of oils and lasers are more than likely just going to provide no results, wasted time, and poorly spent money. Female hair loss can be tricky to treat, as there are a variety of possible causes in addition to genetics. See a partial list here.
There’s no way for me to know if your wife is a candidate for hair transplantation without an examination first, but depending on the hair loss pattern, she might be a candidate for Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP). First though, your wife should go to an actual medical doctor (a trichologist is NOT a medical doctor) to find out the reason for her hair loss. It could be a vitamin deficiency or related to some other medication she is taking. Once a cause is determined, then a treatment path can be planned.
Fantastic site and this article (response) is a great example of why. No nonsense and with a focus on facts (science). The amount of misinformation regarding hair loss is staggering. As you say, there is no cure for hair loss … but there are effective treatments. Although these are not one size fits all, they are backed by science for efficacy (in a percentage of the population). Meaning there is a high probability that folks suffering from MPB will find one that works. Finding the right treatment also requires a ‘scientific’ (methodical) approach which includes: research on sites such as this, objective measurement of progress (e.g. photographs), following the directions provided … and not expecting miracles. I get the pain of hair loss, and totally understand why people seek miraculous cures. Sites like this temper that desperation with sound advice, backed by thorough research. To all those looking to restore their hair, read on!
