I found out three months ago that I have female pattern hair loss. My hair had been disintegrating for over a year but I didn't know what was causing it. I'm in my mid twenties and have a brother a year younger who's losing his hair too. I knew my dad went bald at a young age, but never in a million years would have guessed I could inherit the hair loss as a girl.
My dermatologist has me taking 200mg spironolactone and using the 5% minoxidil foam. I'm still losing piles of hair every day. The hair that's still on my head is so thin and fragile because of the miniaturization. It's basically the consistency of a spiderweb and it's broken off at different lengths all over my head. I'm starting PRP injections too but haven't seen any results and I'm scared that no treatments are going to work. Is female pattern hair loss harder to treat when it happens at a young age?
My main question is whether anyone else with female pattern hair loss has found any wigs, toppers, etc. that work for them?? I started looking into it and realized any toppers, extensions, or wigs with clips would just break off my hair where they attach. Then I though I could get a full wig, but had a consultation last week and they told me I couldn't wear one that would stay on and look natural unless I shaved my head. Getting some sort of hair system was kind of my light at the end of the tunnel and now it's looking like there's no options. I guess everybody here knows how scary and lonely this is!
Any thoughts or advice would be very much appreciated!!!
