Hi, I am the father of a 19 year old who about a year ago was told by a few doctors that she has female pattern hair loss. I am searching for ideas on her behalf, even though she rarely voices any concern. She uses rogaine with fairly good success in arresting the hair loss, but what is in store for her many years to come, I fear for because of the troubles that may/may not come given social acceptance, etc. What are viable ways to restore hair? In her case, she had problems with normal female cycles subsequent to a major weight loss due to illness/surgery. She uses one of the low androgen pills, but perhaps this was a cause? Ceasing it is also worrisome. Thanks for any suggestions! - Concerned Dad.
