Ask The Stylist Hair Loss In Women

Nancy asks…

Can hair loss in women be related to a vitamin dificiency?

I have been experiencing some extreme hair loss for many months now and I’ve gone to get blood work which has turned out pretty okay (very mild iron dificiency), thyroid is good, so are hormones etc. My hair has aways fallen out easily since I was little and it almost seems that my hair aside from being fine and thin comes off from the roots (scalp). Could it be that there’s a vitamin or mineral dificiency in me? If so, what kind and how can I take care of it? I’m concerned because I’ve never lost so much hair as I have now. I don’t feel like I’m stressed, no trauma so what is it? Haven’t given birth, no surgery etc. I’m actually now going to cut my hair shorter to hopefully help stop the hair loss but how can I make my hair stronger so it doesn’t fall off my scalp so easily?
My doctor just checked the testosterone level and that’s is okay too.

The Stylist answers:

Maybe but not likely. You might need more protein. If you are on a vegetarian diet then that is probably the reason. I lost a beautiful head of hair by becoming vegetarian. Now it is taking me years to get my hair back and a lot of money on doctor visits.

Stress can lead to hair loss. I lost tons of hair when I was eating too much tofu and soy products because it blocked my thyroid medication.

My guess would be stress, even though you say no, you could be internalizing your stress.

Try yoga and take prenatal vitamins. I have some friends who swear by them for healthier hair and nails.

Yes, Rogaine will help but it is expensive and if you stop using it; all the hair you have grown will fall out.

Sandra asks…

What causes sudden hair loss in women and what helps stop it?

Normal hair until middle age. Could beginning of menopause have something to do with it?

The Stylist answers:

Yes. That among other things. Depression, stress, nerves. Maybe even hair products that you are using for your hair.

>>>Tips for Preventing Hair Loss<<<:
* Avoid overwashing These can cause excess oil production.

The Stylist answers:

You need to use a hair treatment like provillus. I’ve been on it for 5 weeks and i must say there is a major improvement in my part. It has all the vitamins your hair needs and much more.I’ve used it and I had very good results.Provillus contains the only FDA-approved topical ingredient clinically proven to re grow hair.

I am sure this product will be worth your time for a second look since your money would be going into the right hands. In a survey conducted, 18 out of 20 people experienced a drastic change after using this product. None experienced any side effects.

Provillus offers the best possible and perennial solution for this problem for both men and women. One of the best parts of the provillus treatment is that it uses natural ingredients. This has accounted for its rising popularity. Thus it leaves the other products behind in this context, since most of the products contain harmful chemicals.

Provillus basically functions by removing the main cause of hair loss i.e. DHT. DHT damages the hair follicles and is responsible for the thinning of hair. It also restricts the re-growth of new hair. Provillus prevents its formation and it also promotes the growth of the new hair.

I use it once a day every evening. The area which i was balding in was the top middle portion of my head, not sure why cause no one in my family is loosing hair accept me so its not genetic. I have regrowth in that area, few strands are coming up and my wife says its so much better than it was before.

Well you might be aware that it is available for both men and women. The saw palmetto extract is basically present in the men’s version whereas a combination of acids is present in the female version. Thus in addition to the solution of problem of hair loss it also nourishes hair.

Till now Provillus has been getting positive feedbacks so you needn’t worry and instead be assured. It offers the its users complete satisfaction.

If you would like more information on what a natural hair re-growth product can do for you. I urge you to visit the url in the source box below.

Linda asks…

Any other women experienced hair loss due to high testosterone?

I’m a 20 year old female who has been experiencing higher-than-average hair loss for about 4 months. I recently went to the doctor panicking when it got worse. He said I have high testosterone (normal amount is 2-45 and I have 54) and high globulin. He referred me to a gyno but in the meantime I want to know if anyone else has had this problem? Is it an easy fix? I love my hair and I don’t want to lose any more :(

The Stylist answers:

You should try Bawang Anti-fall and Conditioner. It is the best-selling hair shampoo in China and is recommended by Movie Star Jackie Chan.

Check out the following video from YouTube.


A few of friends who have used it told me that it prevents hairs from falling and makes the hair thicker. The product contains Chinese herbal medicines which improve blood circulation in the head. The improved circulation is supposed to bring nutrients to nourish and strengthen the hair. I also heard the product is money back guarantee.

It contains the following ingredients.

1.Chinese Arborvitae Leaf: Improves on growing environment of scalp, so that reduces hair fall.

2.Ginseng: reduces hair breakage, preventing and reducing hair fall.

3.Ginger: balances the secretion of sebum in the scalp, preventing and reducing hair fall.

You can get it from ebay.
