Question: Female hair loss from stress – what can be done?

Question:  I am a 40 year old female who has been experiencing hair loss problems for the past 2 years. I was diagnosed with Alopecia Nervousa and began treatment with a trichologist using La Biosthetique treatments, this worked initially and my hair growth percentage went from 8% to 69%. However after a year it began to fall out again and after analysis my growth had went down to 59%. I then began using Nourkrin, and initially this also worked, but my hair is still falling out. I am currently still using Nourkrin as I am now unsure about what to do next. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:  Alopecia Nervousa is an uncommon term but by this I assume you refer to hair loss caused by stress i.e. Diffuse Hair Loss or Telogen Effluvium.

The product that we find most beneficial for most forms of female hair loss is Minoxidil + MPG.  Minoxidil is the only product to be FDA approved for hair loss, meaning there have been vigorous clinical trials carried out to prove its effectiveness and efficacy beyond doubt.  When it comes to hair loss caused by stress, it is also important to try to solve the underlying problem for general health reasons as well as preventing your hair loss.

La Biosthetique products seem to be natural cosmetic products so I am quite surprised that any regrowth at all was experienced.

If you have not already tried Minoxidil I would definitely advise it, and if you have responded well to the two products that you mention then I am confident your response with Minoxidil + MPG will be even more successful.  I would however advise an examination for a definitive diagnosis.

More information can be found here – MINOXIDIL + MPG.
