Hair loss / thinning watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    I am an 18 year old female and have been experiencing hair loss for nearly 5 months now. I have no bald patches but the thickness of my hair has reduced a lot. It started when i was in the middle of my a level exams, could it be stress related? I have been to the doctors twice and had thyroid, hormone and iron tests which have come back fine. I started using minoxodil / rogaine , and used it for about 3 months but had to stop because it was making my scalp reallly really itchy and dry. It's seriously starting to get to me now . Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Any products that i could try?
