Ms Brown

Question: My hair is thinning on the sides of my head. I have afro-caribbean hair and I believe it is hereditary. I used to perm my hair but for the last 10 years or so, I have just blow dried and tonged with hot tongs. Is there anything you suggest I can do which would not break the bank. I am over 40 years of age and like other people sometimes under stress. Many thanks.

Answer: It sounds like you may be suffering from female pattern (genetic) hair loss. In order to give an accurate diagnosis and advise on suitable treatment, we need you to either come in for a (free) consultation at the clinic or to complete the online diagnostic form and submit a photograph.

We have had good results treating this hair loss condition, and other types of hair loss in women, using a treatment called Minoxidil. This is a topical solution which can be prepared in various strengths, according to the needs of the patient. More information can be found on our MINOXIDIL page.
