Help!! I'm a female in my late 30's and I'm starting to lose my hair. When I expressed my concern with my doctor he checked my thyroid and I am now on medication for it. This was about 9 months ago and I'm still noticing alot of hair loss. It is not noticeable to others yet (not even my husband) but I notice it. Can anyone offer advice for me? Thank you.

try a product called dynamax Hair system- my husband has been involved in a case study for the past 4 months with this product and we have noticed a significant change. Instead of only 9 lights on a comb, it has 100 and you can wear it like you would a cap. Check out other results on their website at

Thank you for your input!! Actually, I forgot I posted this question. My hair loss has stopped but I will keep dynamax in mind for others who may be going through the same thing.

My name is Dr. David Melamed ( and I specialize in treatments for hair loss. Many young women have problems with hair loss similar to women, while others have genuine medical issues that lead to hair loss. In your case your thyroid seems to have been underactive, leading to hair loss. Since the your doctor has started you on sythroig medication (2 years ago) has your hair loss decreased, and does your hair volume appear to be normal?

I have done a lot of research on laser combs and find them ineffective for hair restoration. The energy output on all the comb-devices are fall less than is needed to stimulate hair regrowth on a person's scalp. The DynaMax device you are recommding is reasonable and uses 100 infrared LED energy sources. Infrared is good to stimulate healing, but there is little evidence to support its benefit for hair restoration.
I use two devices in my office, the Revage 670 that is only used in the office, as well as the iGrow laser:
NEW iGrow Laser Hair Rejuventation System for Home Use
This is a hands-free device that patients can purchase and use at home. The device has 51 light sources, 21 laser and 30 LED, all in the 655 nm red wavelength. This makes the iGrow an ideal device that I recommend to patient to reverse hair loss, thinning and balding and to stimulate hair regrowth. It will not make a bald person grow "new" hair... but if the person is beginning to loose hair or they have thinning hair they will see a noticeable difference after 3-6 months. You can read more and see pictures on both my websites and
