Is there anything besides minoxidil for female hair loss?

There has to be something better than minoxidil for female hair thinning and loss. This problem seems to get brushed off by alot of doctors when the question of hair loss comes from a female.

    Female hair loss is diet, genetic, hormonal and/or stress related

    If you are not getting enough protein you can lose hair.

    Thyroid problems often cause hair loss. I have been on thyroid medication for 30 years but because I was eating too many soy products – they were blocking the thyroid in my body and also caused my hair to fall out. I quit soy and 3 months later my hair is starting to come back.

    Vegetarians often lose their hair.

    Go to the doctor and see if you can determine the cause of hair loss then take steps to try to prevent the problem

    Food manufacturers are now putting soy in everything. I had to quit the Nutrisystem diet because it almost made me bald and they admitted to me every bite of their food contains soy.

    Soy is a huge problem in the USA

    Here is a link on the toxicity of soy

    I actually had this problem and I went to a dermatologist. He put me on a vitamin called Biotin, gave me a shampoo called DHS with zinc, and then gave me a foam to use for 2 monthes called Olux. I thought that I was loosing my hair cause I dye it so much, but he told me that I am super stressed. Anyhow it’s been almost 6 monthes and my hair is back to its thickness and I just take the vitamins and use the shampoo twice a week now. Try the Biotin and DHS shampoo and see if that helps, if not I would go to a Derm. Dr. Hope this helps!


    Hi PMS247,

    You are right; hair loss in women is somewhat of a neglected topic amongst doctors. To answer your question, there are solutions better than minoxidil for correcting hair loss. Minoxidil is proven effective; however, many people argue that it makes their scalp peel and itch. Also, not many people want to apply the solution daily. Propecia is probably the only remedy men can use that women can’t.

    I underwent a Bosley hair restoration surgery back in July and I couldn’t be happier with the results. From the start of my procedure I kept a blog at, which documents my results as well as providing endless amounts of information on hair loss and methods to correct it (not just surgery). At I also have a whole information section dedicated specifically to women battle baldness.

    I hope this helps and good luck with your battle!
