My hair is getting thin from the medications I'm taking. Any ideas how I can get it to be thicker and grow?

  • Since you didn't specify what meds you're taking, I can't guarantee that this will work, but there's a product from Skinactives called KGF (Keratinogenic Growth Factor) that helped me re-grow hair when I had a case of post-partum alopecia. The nice thing about the product is that it has cumulative effect because it activates your body's natural hair-growing capability.

  • Until you stop taking that medication. There is probably nothing you can do. Wear a hat, scarf,wig. Or wear tour hair differently to cover up the thinning
