Does anyone know how to thicken your hair with special hair products. My hair is thinnning on the sides only ,I am 37 and all grey :(!
So,is there any products to help my poor thinning hair? I have had my hormones and minnerals checked-all ok there. My stress level is about the same as it has been. It started about 6 years ago.Help if you can!

What can I do next?

I love the USANA Sense hair product line, with no paraben preservatives, and it makes my hair feel wonderful and handle wonderfully. It's not a 'thickening' product, but has natural vitamins and products to nourish your scalp and hair. Taking essential vitamins with sufficient antioxidants and minerals is key also, as you already know since you've had that checked. However, by what standards are they rating your nutritional health? See the Nutritional Comparative Guide by Dr. Lyle MacWilliams to see the rating of hundreds of different vitamins on the market. Another excellent source of information is Dr. Ray Strand's website below: http://www.bionutrition.org/
Call me if you're interested in learning more about USANA's difference in promoting health. It's made a drastic differenc in my health.

I will agree with the hourse shampoo. It really does work! In high school had had cut all my hair off and had it 'boy' short for years! I wanted to grow it out but it just wasnt growing fast enough and I had heard from an old friend of mine to use the hourse shampoo and it worked, got longer fast and thicker as well!

Good luck hun!

My 19yo daughter was losing hair by the handful until we found out she had celiac disease. It's an autoimmune disease where the body can not process the protein gluten found in wheat, rye, oats & barley. Since we changed her diet & removed gluten, her hair stopped falling out & looks better than it has in years. We had not realized how thin, dry & listless it was looking before. Same with her skin color. She also gained weight, which for her, was very good.

It might be worth checking into. Some website to look at are:
celiac.com

try nioxin products...they are sold in salons and will help stop more hair from falling out and may even stimulate some of the hair you've lost to regrow. have you had your thyroid checked recently, under and over active thyroid can cause hairloss, as well as stress, diet, and heart and blood pressure meds.

Stress can certainly cause hair loss. So can a vitamin deficiency. Make sure you are getting the nutrients you would get from eating red meat, since you are a vegetarian. I would suggest you talk to a professional about your family situation and a great stress reliever is a professional massage.

Hope you your hair comes back nice and thick.

I make hair serums to assist with thinning hair. You can email me to find out more about that. In the meantime, if you have essential oils in your home, rosemary, chamomile,sage among others is excellent to add your shampoo and conditioner. Another possibility is that you may be pulling on your hair too much. Worrying about your hair may also cause you to reach and tug at your hair more often which can cause thinning. Also check your hair care products and the chemicals that may have harsh ingredients (even the ones labeled to be natural). Tight ponytails are also a culprit of thinning hair for many women especially along the sides of the hairline.

Hope this is helpful.

The women in my family have this problem, too. We use Nioxin products (available at most salons). It helps with texture and rinses clean so the hair follicles can have room to grow.

If you have already been to your Dr. & they cant find anything wrong, then I would try your hair stylist. They may have some other ideas.

I had that same problem awhile back, but all is well now. I started taking these all natural supplements and vitamins. They worked wonders. My hair is thicker now and it doesn't fall out anymore either! I get them from the health and wellness Co. I'm partnered with. All their stuff works wonders! If interested e-mail me.
