What Can You Suggest for a Woman to Slow Down Thinning Hair?

Question: I am a woman with thinning hair. Can you suggest anything either to slow it down or stop it?

Thinning hair could be caused by a variety of unrelated situations. I know women who have worn their hair pulled tightly back in a ponytail or bun for years and they are now starting to show a receding hairline around the bangs and crown area due to a lack of circulation in this area. If you feel that blood flow is impeded, regular scalp massage has proven helpful, and you may also want to try supplements that promote circulation like Ginkgo biloba, which is outstanding for its bioavailability. A change in levels of hormones could be the culprit, or thinning hair may be a side-effect of certain medications. Biotin plays an important role in the health of hair, as does the mineral silicon. Don't overlook your diet either. If you're not regularly consuming salmon or flaxseed, the first thing to try is an omega-3 fatty acid supplement like Swanson Virgin Salmon Oil softgels. The benefits of omega-3 EFAs are astounding, and they are just as essential to a full and luxurious head of hair as they are to cardiovascular health.
