Im a 35 year old female, healthy, labs normal. Started seeing hair thinning, loss with combing and showering. Used rogaine for less than a month in december then stopped. Now hair looks thinner than ever. Loss is diffuse but is very apparent at front and then back of scalp. Difficult to cover up. Will this hair grow back even without rogaine if it was there to begin with? Any suggestions, remedies would be helpful.

Along with Propecia, Rogaine is one of only two drugs approved by the FDA for treating hair loss.
Minoxidil, (Rogaine’s active ingredient), was originally created as a drug for treating hypertension (high blood pressure). It was then discovered that one of its side affects was growing hair. Minoxidil was then tested for use as a topical application for regrowing hair. The results were sufficiently impressive that the FDA approved it as a treatment for hair loss.

What kind of hot oil are you guys talking about?
What kind of hot oil are you guys talking about?
Hair care should be two way strategy; first is to prevent further hair fall and second is to maintain or grow your current hair. One of the easiest ways to prevent excessive hair fall is oil massage. Oil massage helps in increasing the blood flow in the scalp, which in turn stimulates hair growth. Apply a mixture of coconut oil, almond oil and two teaspoons of lemon juice. Leave it overnight and wash normally. Regular usage will help to reduce hair fall thus decreasing the chances of aggravating the baldness. There are various remedies that help you improve your hair like add two teaspoons of honey in two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix them very well. Now add a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and mix well with the honey and olive oil mixture. Apply this on the affected areas of your scalp, leave it for 15 minutes and wash it off. Repeat twice a week for 3 to 4 months to see effective results. Alternatively, you can also do massage with lukewarm basic oils like coconut oil, almond oil, amla oil to stimulate your hair follicles. This also help in improving blood circulation on your scalp as well as relieve your from stress and strain.

Believe it or not, most of the times, the root cause for hair loss is stress and tension. Meditation can help in reducing that and restore hormonal balance. Eating a balanced, healthy diet is important for a lot of reasons. Healthy foods can really benefit your hair. If you're losing hair, one of the best ways that has been extremely effective in controlling and preventing hair fall is the intake of the right vitamins. Good nutrition, especially adequate levels of iron and vitamin B, is helpful. Good hair hygiene with regular shampooing is a basic step but is probably of little benefit. Jojoba and castor oils are known for their strong hair growth effects. Mixing the two will not expedite the growth process very much, but the jojoba oil will make the castor oil lighter and easier to lather into your scalp. You can also use either alone in your hair and you should see hair growth.

Yes you can regrow your hair. Use natural home remedies to regrow your hair. May be some home remedies are available at your home which you can use to prevent hair fall.
Use coconut oil to massage your scalp or head daily for 10-15 minute. Stay hydrate, drink 10 glass water regularly.
Avoid physical and emotional stress because stress plays an important role in hair loss.
do exercise and yoga.

In case coconut oil and yoga didn't regrow your hair, there are some other solutions for thinning hair in a 35 year old female that could be considered. Hair loss in females is very different from hair loss in males, and often a work up to find a cause is indicated. Sometimes things as simple as mild anemia or hypothyroidism, which are relatively common in 35 year old females, which can be corrected by taking a pill, can be the source of hair loss in women. There are several blood tests that can be done to look for these as well as more unusual causes of hair loss in a woman your age.
If we assume that your hair loss is not due to a correctable metabolic condition like anemia, and that it's idiopathic in nature (eg: nobody really knows what is causing your hair loss) then there are some treatments that may be of help to you to both slow down the progression of your hair loss, and in some cases appear to reverse the hair loss. These include low level laser therapy (LLLT), platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, and microneedling with fetal growth serums. These are not surgical procedures and leave no scar, and do not use up a limited resource (eg: your donor hair). We have had some real successes with growing hair back using these non-surgical methods. A consultation with a physician who has dedicated his practice to the field of hair restoration surgery is indicated, as these treatment options are not for everyone, and a physician's visit a good idea to assess your candidacy.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
