     I started with the problem around Christmas time.  I believe it is from the 6MP.  Well, my  hair dresser recommended Nioxin....it works great.   It took a few months though but I do notice my hair getting thicker.  Thank God, because I had thin hair to start with and I began to notice bald spots..yuk.  However, things are looking much better.

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!!  Hope I don't jinx myself.  Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks.  Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.

Hey Christine,

What formula do you use?  I've noticed a ton of different products that Nioxin makes.  I belive there are different systems?

Do you use just the shampoo or do use a combination of the shampoo, scalp treatment, etc...?

 

Thanks

     I use the cleanser, scalp therapy and scalp treatment for natural hair/noticeably thinning.  My hairdresser wanted $40 for the large size but my daughter ordered it online for $25.  She isn't home right now but I can ask her what site she ordered it from if you would like.

Thanks Christine,

No worries, I found a good site where I could get it for $29.99 but I didnt want to wait for it to ship so I went to a hair boutique place and bought it.  I got the system 6 which is for natural hair that is noticebly thining as well.  I guess I'll start it tomorrow morning and see how it works becasue I want to start 6mp ASAP. 

So do you just comb in the the scalp treatment?

Also, try Biotin for hair loss. It works great, but takes about 2 months to start working.

Jano,
 
Do you take the capsules?  Also how many micrograms do you take a day?

Does Biotin cause hair to stop falling out or grow in new hairs or both? (I don't need hair on any place that isn't my sclap! tongue )
 
I've heard that using coconut oil can help hair regrowth.
