Female Pattern Baldness

A long-time friend of mine suffers from Female Pattern Baldness. Her natural hair color is a very dark brown, but she highlights her hair because she thinks this helps keep her hair from looking so thin. Her hair just keeps thinning, however, and as she’s gotten older, it’s more and more obvious that she’s losing her hair. She’s tried a couple of products with varying results, but she quit using them either because her sensitive skin had a reaction to the products or she couldn’t justify the cost based on the results.

She considers me an internet guru (I hear some of you laughing), so she asked me to do a bit of research. I found a review of several hair loss products on that I found particularly helpful, especially the Provillus review. After researching this product more extensively, I found quite a bit of positive feedback, but very little negative.

I passed along the information to my friend, and she decided to give Provillus a try. Right now they offer a 2 month free supply, so she figured it was worth a shot. If she sees results, she’ll keep using it. If she doesn’t, we’ll move on to something else.

(When I told her this, she laughed and said, “Or buy a wig!” I’m glad she’s still got a sense of humor about it.)

I hope the product works for your friend. I had a friend who had that issue and tried lots of products with some results. I am glad she can have a sense of humor! Good luck to her!

Tell your friend good luck! My step cousin lost all her hair, for unknown reasons, at the age of 14 and it finally grew back when she went to college. And when I say lost, I mean ALL her hair: eyebrows, arm and leg hair, pubic hair, everything! She wore a wig, but was so beautiful bald I tried to convince her to not wear the wig.

So, I vote go natural!
