I am a female 37 years old . I have very fine hair since i was a kid. I was prescribed to take 1 capsule of every morning of Radiance H and one tablet of Androanagen Every night. I dont think its helped me at all and its been a year i have taken them.
Some one told me to change it to biotin Essvit
Is there anything else i should take to boost hair growth

Hi dear N,

Thanks for writing in .

Hair growth is under genetic , hormonal and environmental factors.

Most common cause of thining of hair and loss of hair is either thyroid disease or androgenetic alopecia.

Androgenetic alopecia fits in your case if thyroid disease is ruled out by blood test.
Was your thyroid test was normal?

Also do you have generalised thining or central parting is thinned.

Androanagen is better for you.
Minofidil lotion and saw palmetto lotion can also be useful
in your case.

Also if your family is complete you can be started on finasteride.

Mesotherapy, dermaroller ,platelet XXXXXXX plasma are a new and promising procedures.

You can discuss these option with your dermatologist.

Hope this helps.

I will be available to any further queries.
