Hair loss/ thinning

Hi Doc

I have been for blood test with my GP and everything is normal, my hair started thinning about 7yrs ago, it was nice and full when I was expecting 2 years ago and it went back to being thin again. It is quite noticeable in the front section, no one els in my family has this problem, only me.
Please advise I really need help, feeling very frustrated and low

Dear Lee
What kind of blood test did you do? Thinning hair can be caused by low iron levels, thyroid hormone imbalances, and low esterogen. Try using Bergamot essence in your shampoo, take a good supplement (Nu-hair).
