I am a 45 year old woman who for most of my life, until recently, had thick, naturally curly hair. Hairdressers marveled, men swooned, etc., etc. Now, in the last 2 years or so, my hair has thinned so much, itís TOO thin. Also, in the front, itís to the point itís almost so thin you could call it on the edge of balding. My hair is more brittle, dryer, and the curl is all but gone. I donít use hair dryers, didnít need and donít use permanents. Iím kind to my hair. But I really HATE my hair now. Nothing looks good. Cuts to make it look fuller fall flat. Itís lifeless. Help!

P.S.: I am not on birth control any longer, but once was. I have had my thyroid checked. No problems there the doctor claims.

Hello Tish,

My older sister has the same problem with extreamly thin hair, she too was on the verge of baldness.

What she did was she went to a really good hair dresser in our community and got it cut really short, these looks are really great because it makes your hair appear full and thicker.

Look online for the perfect cut that will suit you, print it and take it to a good hairdresser to copy it. This should help you, if it can help my sister this can definately help you.

Best of Luck!!!

Has your hair thinned slowly or quickly. My hair started falling out fast last march and I rushed to the doctor for blood tests. My iron came back at 19 and I went on iron pills. It took 2 months to stop. I havent noticed any regrowth in the really thinning area around the front hairline. I have read our hair can thin in peri/menopause which is why I believe my hair has lost a lot of bulk. I just had a layered cut and it looks a lot fuller.

Sorry to hear about this How is your diet?? Does it contain lots of good oils,like Olive oil? Do you
take a good vitamin? I have heard also that in peri-meno
that this can happen. My hair has changed texture and
is grayer now at 48. Hope you find the answer soon,maybee
a dr or dermotologist? Good luck, let us know.
