Hi, Ladies,

My name is manhhuy ly. I live in Canada, Vancouver, B.C.

I am an Esthetician, and Hair restorationist.

Last year, in early April 2015,my sister had theTelogen effluvivium

hair loss problem and asked me for help. In did the research,what it there, why it  there, how to treat it. I  started treating her early  in April, by the end of the month, her hair stopped shedding and

the baby hairs ( Vellus ) had arrived. After 3 months of  treatment, her hair grew rapidly and gone back to normal stage.( she had  a short hair cut. Then my friend Mr (shaw)  saw the result and asked me for help. I started treating In August  Mr Shaw had Telogen effluvium and Front fibrosing alopecia.

By September, his hair grew so rapidly and said to me Why do not this as a business. I did not realize that there is no cure at the moment in the market. So many people in the world are suffer hair loss. The reason i contact  to Alopecia foundation since my clients suggested to me that i should broadcast that Hair Loss is available.

I have treated  the clients such as Alopecia Totalis, frontal Fibrosing Alopecia, lopecia areate front hair line, Scarring Alopecia ,Telegen Effluvium, Traction Alopecia ,Trichotillomaina ( hair pulling disorder, and i been treating Endrogen Alopecia for 2 male clients for the last 2 months. first they came in for consultation,they had vellus hairs,after 1 month of treatment, the peach fuzz became more thicker and darker pigment . now all the vellus hairs have turn to adult hairs. the treatment should be completed by September. I treatment all above hair loss problem  Except hair loss due to medical problem and Alopecia Universalis. My e mail is manhhuyly"gmail.com.

Hi, and welcome!
My name is Beth. My teenage daughter has androgenticalopecia. I am starting a plan of positive action to contact researchers, pharmaceutical companies, students studying dermatology, females and males with aga, and let them know we want treatments that work! I just have to figure out what kind of website I want to set up.

I will not promote specific remedies, nor will I charge money. My sole interest is keeping up interest until we have good treatments.
Stay tuned!

Thank you, Hope Hopper!
Thank you for the specifics of your treatment. Teenagers have their own agendas, so treatment, etc., has been challenging. I will keep documenting, also, because maybe we can help another woman or Teenagers!
She definitely has female pattern. I took her to many top specialists because we had to rule out other things. It is tough, but I live in hope of new treatments. Thank you very much!

I hope that the Yaz does wonders for her. My body hated it. I bled for a month with no end in sight. I went to my doctor who immediately switched me to ortho cyclen, and I have not had issues since. Fingers crossed for your daughter, because I hear its a good one for hair loss. Did they check her ferritin level? Mine was at a low of 19 and for adequate hair growth it needs to be between 50 and 70. I think going aggressively has helped me the most. Getting my level back up to the fifties, taking 100 mg. of spiro, less stress, no calorie restriction, and hormone control thru birth control. I also take something over the counter called FOOD grade diatomaceous earth. It has tons of silica in it, which our hair needs. I also take a chewable probiotic and make sure that my gut is in check if you know what I mean. So, yes, I take all of these things everyday, I am so happy that I made the commitment, because now I feel like my life is getting back to normal. I never thought I would ever have to worry about hair loss, because I had such great full hair, well, I am now a firm believer that nobody is safe. I don't even have a family history of hair loss. My own Father has all of his hair, with maybe 5 to 10 gray hairs, and he is almost 55. My Mother just went through a bad spout of hair loss, last year but she was very sick, so its probably bc her colon couldn't process foods like it use to. I have begged her to get her ferritin checked, but since her hair is growing back without any help now, she isn't worried about it. So anyways, if your daughter has very heavy periods, don't eat much foods with iron in it, I think low ferritin coupled with other things such as high stress, can make your hair fall out. Did she have a huge shed? Did they do a biopsy? I am sorry she is going through this, I know it sucks and is extremely hard to deal with. You are a good Mom to be so concerned about her and this journey that she is on!! Two thumbs up for you Beth!!

Thank you Hope Hopper,
My daughter has been doing 5% rogaine foam, but now we are going to add yaz bcp. I am glad your hair grew back. Wonder if it was the spironolactone. Are you still on the same pill regiment? Thanks!

I am not sure that I have shared my experience on here. I can remember a time that I was spending countless hours on the web researching, commenting, and reading about what has happened to other women regarding hair loss. Wondering  if things would get better or just stay the same, or worse. My low point drove me to shaving all of my hair off and just getting a wig. My hair was litterally raining out for almost 6 months. I just felt like my hair was so thing and ugly it had to go! I remember feeling stubborn saying that since half of my hair jumped ship, that I didn't want the rest who actually stuck around for me. I kept my hair shaved down for four months and then decided to regrow it to see if things had improved. And in those four months I started spiro, ortho-cyclen, and iron supplements. I am happy to say that at least 80 percent of my hair has grown back in. My part is tight and scalp is covered. I am in the awkard growing out a pixie stage, heading into my 8th month of growing it out. I still cringe a bit when I see a hair or two that makes its way down my arm. However, I know that my hair is finally in a normal stage of falling out instead of the horrible bout of TE I had, that ultimately revealed early aga thru a biopsy that was performed. My advice to females is get your ferritin levels checked. I think my low iron, coupled with major stress, plus being on a low calorie diet really just through my hair into a mess. I understand the feeling of being hopless just trying to read any and every hair victory out there, I can honestly say as of today, things have surely improved for me. Best wishes to all and if I can help in any way, please don't hesitate to let me know.
