HAIR LOSS

pamzd posted:
Hi, I have had RA for 4 years and was originally on Plaquenil and Methotrexate. I may have lost a little hair from the metho, but 6 months ago I started on Embrel and its seems my hair has thinned enough so that I can hardly pull it together in spots to cover my scalp. So two weeks ago my Rheumatologist did a blood test for Hypothyroid and lucky me I have it, so now I am on Levothroxin. I have the propensity to thin hair from my mothers side of the family, so am I doomed?

Hi pamzd,

I am sorry that you are experiencing this hair loss. You might find it helpful to take a look around our Hair Loss Health Center for information on possible treatments or home remedies. I did find these articles on thinning hair care and natural treatments for hair loss that you might find interesting. I hope that you find something that will help.

Best wishes,
Atti

Try some home remedies to make your hair strong and healthy. Mix olive oil, castor oil and almond oil then add few drops of vitamin E capsules and apply it to your hair. Wash your hair the next day.
