I, also, have suffered severe hair loss. My dermatologist ordered a feritin level, that could be an issue in hair loss. All in all, she said prolonged illness, stress, heredity, thyroid disease etc. may be causes.
I recently went to a seminar on female hair loss. Mostly, she talked about wig and wiglet replacements. She deals with women who have undergone chemo. But, she recommended a few things that can help the slow down hair loss: 1) eat more protein, 2) DHT blockers when DHT is a cause. she recommended using Bosley products, 3) minoxidil foam. My derm also said the foam is OK for women.
My extreme hair loss has stopped but non of it has regrown. I quit dying my hair hoping the grey will help hide my scalp.
I hope you have better luck.
