an infamous question...!!

is there really a way to get thicker fuller hair, or am i just wasting my time and money trying to get that? i have thin, fine hair and want thick, full hair but dont know how to get it, or what to use to get it. i am on accutane right now which i guess can cause it to fall out, but im almost done and want to fix my hair! ive abused it in the past with brushes and heat, so now i try to baby it but it still falls out and is thin. is there actually something i can do??? help!!!

Re: an infamous question...!!

Is the accutane for hair loss? I'm not sure whether you are male or female, but specifically if you are female, are you aware that no matter how many chemical products you throw on your hair to regrow it, it will not regrow if you have an iron defficiency in particular and for others when they have a thyroid problem.

My hair began shedding 7 yrs ago after my ferretin (iron stores) began dropping below 40. For optimum hair growth your ferretin should be 70+ and stay there or as close to 70 as is possible.

I spent years looking for reasons as to why my hair was thinning and it ended up being my iron.
