MY hair get so thin due to Lupus. MY doctor suggest 'Rogain'. Anyone has any other idea.

hi and welcome

my hair is also is thinning due to lupus first and then was put on imuran and that is not helping. ive talk to many who have and has this problem and not one has ever said rogain works. im sure thats not what you want to here but its better than wasting your money. ive been told by many that your hair when it breaks off will grow back. i hope this helps.
good luck and take care

When I stared losing my hair by the hndfuls my hair dresser said to try Nioxin shampoo and conditioner. She told me to go the GNC health store and buy Hair,Skin,and Nail Formula vitamins. She said lots of her clients are doing this with good results. It took about three weeks but the hair loss stopped and now its growing in. When I went to have my nails done the girl mentioned how strong my nails are. I told her about the vitiamins and she wrote down the name. She said most of her clients have very week nails and would love to have something to help. The shampoo you will need to get from a salon.
Hope this helps,

My hair has been breaking off as well, in fact all of a sudden I have bangs that I definitely did not want. I am glad to know that I'm not alone you all had some really great suggestions I'm going out to buy the hair and nails stuff because my nails are awful too! Boy, you really do learn some crazy stuff every day about this disease its almost mind-blowing!
