I'm Female: Can My Receeding Hairline Be Restored?
(Oakland, CA )
Hello, my name is Joni. Even though I am female, I seem to be losing hair more like a man. Currently, I'm 34 and my hair line has completely receded. My hair comes out in patches all over my head. I find myself never wanting to look in the mirror and becoming more and more introverted. I hide my hair line as much as I possibly can, but it's becoming difficult and some days I just stay home.
I've tried many things but nothing seems to work. I cry all the time because it has become so depressing for me.
My question is, can something be done to regrow my hair even though this has been going on for three years? Could this diet restore my hair line?
I have been experiencing female hair loss for the past three years. I first noticed a small patch of thinning hair around my temple when I was 31. I started covering that area and went to the doctor immediately.
I informed the doctor that no one else in my family has hair loss, so I don't understand how this could be happening to me. My hair has always been very thick. The doctor said it's hereditary and that there could have been a gene that was dormant but became active in me.
I was still convinced it had to be something else, so I suggested I be tested for lupus. My test came back negative and I was told that wearing wigs could be an option. Since then, I have tried a variety of things but all have been unsuccessful while the hair loss has increased.
I lost nearly half of the hair on my head, and I literally feel as though I am going bald.
My Hair Regrowth Stopped: Is Too Much Excerise Harmful?
Hi again, it's Joni. Recently my hair regrowth has completely stopped and has quickly started to heavily shed again. All my new hairs along my hairline seemed to have fallen out as well and my hairline has completely gone back to receding again.
I don't know what happened. I stayed on the diet I never stopped taking the supplements but my body doesn't seem to be responding. I did have a few days when I fudged it a bit, but I quickly recovered and this was close to 2 months ago now.
The biggest change was I started exercising 5 times a week and lost 15 pounds. When I noticed my hairline was starting to recede again, I decided to slow down my exercise routine to 2 days a week.
Recently I've increased my protein, but I don't know how much protein I should eat to maintain my weight and hair. I also don't know if the cause of this was protein. I don't want to stop exercising and risk putting the weight back on. Because honestly, I was a bit overweight. I'm actually hoping to lose 5 more pounds, but I don't know how much food I should consume to maintain my weight loss and my hair regrowth.
Do you think too much exercise could be harmful for my hair regrowth? I've thought about taking my vitamins more than what the instructions recommend.
Also, I drink around three cups of coffee a day. I drink an extra glass of water for every 1 cup of coffee I have to make up for it.
Do you think this could have an affect? I feel that my body is missing something, but I don't know what and I'm pretty confused right now. I weigh about 135 now and I'm 5 feet tall. Can you advise me about how much food I should be eating to maintain my lifestyle?
Thanks for your help in advance.
