She’s best known for playing Laura Palmer’s best friend Donna Hayward in David Lynch’s cult classic TV show Twin Peaks, where she was known for her thick bouncy brown locks, however now at the age of 43, Lara Flynn Boyle appears to be experiencing noticeable hair loss along her parting.
As she shopped in Beverly Hills, the TV and movie actress appeared to have distinct balding along the top of her scalp, which is much more unusual in women than men, who can experience a thinning crown on account of male pattern hair loss, which affects 95% of males.
Mysterious Hair Loss
Female pattern hair loss usually appears as a thinning of hair atop the scalp, and whilst bald patches are unusual before the hair loss has progressed considerably, it may be that this is the cause of Boyle’s loss.
If it is indeed pattern hair loss, an effective treatment programme would include minoxidil, the only treatment for women’s hair loss that has been licensed by the MHRA and approved by the FDA, the medical regulatory bodies in the UK and America. Minoxidil comes in a variety of strengths, and an experienced hair loss specialist is able to establish the optimum combined daily dose for your level of loss.
Baldness For Boyle?
Because women cannot use Propecia, a medication than male patients use to stop the damage pattern hair loss does to follicles atop the head, added ingredients that appear to perform a similar function when applied locally are combined with the minoxidil. These include caffeine and MPG (Medroxyprogesterone) and in our high strength minoxidil cream, azelaic acid.
If Boyle is managing to conceal patchy hair loss on other parts of her scalp with her long hair, it could be that she is experiencing an auto-immune condition called alopecia areata. This type of hair loss can be triggered by a sudden shock to the system, illness or chronic stress amongst other causes, and your GP can help to establish the cause.
If the hair loss is very substantial, treatment might not help, but minoxidil can in some cases regrow hair. Of course, medication is just one component of a successful hair loss treatment programme.
A Bespoke Approach
Regular check-ups would be necessary to monitor Boyle’s progress, and also to make any alterations to her programme necessary to ensure that her tailored treatment plan was optimised to her hair’s condition.
As well as check-ups, various hair growth boosters come together to ensure that hair and scalp are kept in the best condition possible, meaning that regrowth is healthy and strong. From nutritional supplement Hair Vitalics to the FDA cleared LaserComb, a hair loss specialist is able to compile a bespoke treatment plan that gives you the best chance of not only halting hair loss, but regrowing thin areas and sustaining the regrowth.
