Hey, I have no idea whats goin on with my head :eek: Im 19 yrs old and I started noticing very slight thinning and receding in the front middle and thinning at the vertex about a year ago. Its not the receding at the temples kind. After reading Will Brink's article about hair loss I ordered Dr. Proctor's light version of shampoo from LEF in the spring. This summer i didnt really notice it getting worse or better but in the past week or 2 ive noticed my hair all over the place. Its itchy, and if i scratch it, theres usually a cpl hairs on my hand. In the shower, my hands end up with hairs all over, theyre all over my pillowcase, and Ive noticed them inside my baseball cap now too. Im getting low on the shampoo, and I just received his slightly stronger version, NANO shampoo, but with this recent fallout thats not stopping I dont think its enough to counter. Theres no family history, a little thinning of the temples in the grandparents, but not bald. I asked my Dr. over the summer because I was sick for a long time over the winter and asked if it cud be connected and she looked at my head and said it was probably hereditary. Right now, its not noticable except it is to me but Id like to figure out what I can do about this. I have read Will's articles and I thought I had it halted until I started seeing my hairs all over the place. What cud be causing it and what are my best options?
Thanks,
Jordan

If you read my article you already know what I consider the best options. Not sure if you read the first/older version of the article, or the recent update found here:

Will what would you recommend for women with thinning hair? Minoxidil 2% soloution? My wife's hair has thinned a little after having three kids and being in her late 30's.

Might help, not sure. Hair loss with women can have different causes then men, but plenty of women use Dr Proctors formula for example to good effect.

ok, just wondering if i shud get this checked out by a hair specialist or something, cuz i mean before it wasnt noticable, but now the past week or 2 its been straight shedding all over the apartment at an alarming rate. I was wondering if there cud be something else causing this crazy shedding

thanks,
Jordan

There are many things that can cause hair shedding, none of which I can diagnose over the 'net. See a doc if concerned about it.

After re-reading ur articles many times, it seems like Proxiphen-N and finasteride would probably be my best options for now. But since id be using the non-prescription formula, are there "holes" that the non-prescription has that i cud fill their purpose with other products? Or in other words does the non-prescription and finasteride attack all aspects or is there something else missing that u would suggest throwing in b4 i place my order?

You will note I don't mention or recommend any of the non prescription formulas in the articles. The pricription formula is the way to go. I can't vouch for the non prescrption versions.

Is it possible to get the above article in a form other than html as I cannot open it in that format.
