Hair Loss

My hairline is fading away :-(

Do you know if any insurance will cover any hair loss treatments? I'm only 23 and this has made me EXTREMELY insecure! I don't even going swimming anymore because I am so embarrassed of my hair line being exposed. I don't know what to do!

Is anyone in the same boat as me?

  • Really? what's pcos? I'm assuming mines may be heriditary or when I was younger I pulled my hair back alot...for years I haven't been doing that, I wear my hair down and no more straightening...it still isn't getting any better :-(

    so what do you do?

  • Have you tried prenatals? Sometimes they can help make your hair grow. My grandmother even recomends them to some of her customers (she is a hairdresser).

  • Vitamins may help. It's worth a try and if they don't work at least they're good for you :-) good luck!
