Hair loss

I noticed about 13 years ago that my hair was thinning. It is now to the point that I can see scalp. ( I have been told this is because of my diabetes) It's right on the top, at the hair line. I have been looking at clip on hair pieces, but I'm not finding any that don't look really fake. I don't think extentions will work because the hair loss is on the top of my head. I also don't have the money to spend hundreds, or thousands of dollars to fix this. What would you do if you were going bald?

  • They make this stuff you sprinkle in your hair that you use a spray that covers your scalp, I got some for my mother, I think it is called top chic, it doesn't come out when you sweat, or on your pillows, it worked amazing.

  • Hats, wraps, scarves, and talk with your hairdresser. She might have some good ideas as to new styles.

  • I agree. I would find someone who knew about wraps and hats, and then I would embrace the beautiful person I knew I was, and to hell with anyone else who couldn't or wouldn't accept that person. *Smile.*

  • See a dermatologist first who will determine why the hair loss. And a good hair stylist after that.

  • Are you also on a blood pressure medication? There are two categories of BP meds: Beta Blockers which cause hair loss & is reversible if you change to an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker. Just a thought. Both my Mom& Sister are on a Beta blocker category BP med & they have hair loss.

    If you ae then you can google your med to see what category it is.

  • I have cut my own hair for the last 30 years, but for my wedding 11 years ago I splurged and went to a pro. He commented on my thinning hair, tried brushing it different ways, and ended up leaving it the way I usually do it. He recommended hair thickening shampoo. I looked up my BP med. It's an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker.   I have almost no body hair. No arm hair, no leg hair. I haven't shaved my legs in 10 years.  My eyebrows are going.  I trim about an inch off my hair once a year. I have been told this is because of my diabetes. I will definitely have to look into the top chic stuff. I hope it's not too expensive.
