Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

As some women grow older, new hairs may not grow. The most common causes of hair loss in top of head at your age are:chronic illnesses or medical conditions,anemia,hormonal conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or thyroid disease, certain medications,some skin disease,poor nutrition,Disruption of the hair growth cycle.

The treatment is done according to the cause.Provillus makes a natural product especially designed for women. It contains B vitamins and other natural ingredients to help prevent the hair loss. Provillus is the only topical and dietary supplement approved by the FDA to regrow hair for women.

Also apply 1 milliliter (mL) of rogaine(minoxidil) to the scalp two times a day after consultation of your doctor. So I advice you to make an appointment with your dermatologist for the prescription of these medications accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Your reply was somewhat informative, but the treatment u suggest especially rogaine has not work for me. Can recommend a hair specialist in my area for consulation. Also I am familiar with provilllus treatment. Please respond. Thanks.

Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

As you have already used rogaine & this has not helped,you now need to consult hair doctor/dermatologist as you may need tests & examination so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Please let me know your area-so that I can recommend you a hair specialist.

Thank you.

Kind Regards
