Is there a natural remedy to help with hair loss/thinning of hair?

Published: May 30, 2013

I'm 53 and my hair is very thin only in the front of my head. Is there a natural remedy or vitamin I can use to help prevent the thinning of my hair ? I know it comes with aging but i think mine is a little more than that ..Thanks.


Although many nutritional supplements and support can help improve healthy hair (for example make sure that your iron levels are optimized with your ferritin blood test being over 60), if the thinning is only in the front to suggest that this is from testosterone, classically called male pattern baldness (even if in women) and there is not much still I find especially helpful for that except to make sure that the dihydrotestosterone levels are not too high. Hope this helps.
