Hi NORE1228! This is unfortunatley a subject that I know alot about. Not only does my alopecia run in my family, (my mother wears a wig since her twenties) but a couple of years ago I was diagnosed with ulceritive colitis. The disease/medication has caused over 40% of my hair to fall out at times. This happens to me sometimes several time per year. I know all to well how this can cause stress and negatively affect your self esteem.

I'll tell you the best remedy for this I have found is biotin. Biotin is an inexpensive B-Vitamin that you can find at any healthfood store. I take 300mg/day. It takes about a month to start working, but it really works! I also use Nioxin shampoo and conditioner (sysetm 4) which is especially made for thinning hair. This stuff is expensive, so I only use it with active hair loss.

I really hope this helps you out!
