Welcome To Hair Loss Hell

Welcome To Hair Loss Hell
September 10th, 2010

JeniWelcome to my new blog Hair Loss Hell. My name is Jeni, and I’ve been dealing with hair loss for about a decade now. It’s finally time that I write about my ongoing struggle with my thinning hair. I hope to help others going through the same thing, and to give and receive support. Why is the site called Hair Loss Hell? For most women (and men), losing your hair is hell! I was going to call the site something more generic like “female hair loss” or “hair loss in women” but those names were already taken, and I think hair loss hell sums up the whole hair loss theme perfectly.

To learn more about me, read my About Hair Loss Hell page. I will be posting articles about androgenetic alopecia, telogen effluvium, anxiety and hair loss, doctor’s visits, thyroid problems, low iron, birth control pills, vitamins and minerals, wearing hair, and more! ~ Jeni

    Hi Jeni,
    I love that you are pursuing this topic which is close to my heart. I also suffer from thinning hair mostly in the front area. I think it is concentrated in that area due to the 80s and 90s when you use to hairspray and lift the front bangs and then blowdry it so the could stick up straight and then flip to the side. I would then not wash my hair the next day and comb thru the hairsprayed hair and repeat the process. What abuse to hair back at that time. Right now if you were too look at me you would never know, however I do since I have been noticing a gradual thinning over the years. I also have noticed how much hair I shed when I shampoo. I know on average we can shed at least 100 hairs but I know that mines is way more then that. I have noticed that the longer I have my hair the thinner it seems, so I keep it pretty short, like Halle Berry. I have gone to several hair replacements treatments and have spent about close to 5,000 in both treatments and never really saw any improvements. Hair transplant seems drastic and expensive. Right now I just use Rogain for Women pretty consistently for the past several years. I think by doing that I have somewhat controlled the hair loss. I do know that once I stop that my hair loss would be way more noticeable. I get very scared thinking of how I will look if my hair loss continues and how bad it will get. If only there was a magical pill, medicine that would bring back all my long curly full head of hair I had back in the days, but did not fully enjoy until I began to lose it.

    Hi Jenni,

    I’m 28 years old and have thin hair. I totally understand the horrible feeling of hair loss! I too started seeing dermatologists and hairdressers with no improvement in the thinning of my hair. I started using toppik powder and it definately covers my wide path and some bald areas and gives me some confidence.
    I too wish there was a miracle pill. Going to look at hair extensions and hopefully that will help but all of this is short term solutions. Hair loss for woman is definately devasting.

    You are totally justified in being so worried about your hair! I lost a lot of hair because of Graves disease and ever since then whenever I see a woman with a thick ponytail or a thick part I get a pang of jealousy because they have no idea how lucky they are. And it doesn’t help that celebrities have stylists to mask their hair problems and make their hair look lush and thick! But every once in a while I see a pretty woman with thin hair or with a tiny ponytail and it reminds me that you can be pretty and have thin hair. But then I look at my own hair in the mirror and remember how much thicker it used to be and I am filled with despair, and I think we all feel that. So thank you for your website, it helped a lot :)

    Hi, so glad I found this website. I am not shedding but my hair is coming in thinner at the front. Could you write about the effects of hormone therapy for breast cancer?
    I am terrified my hair will not grow back. Love and many thanks.
