I am 50 years old and used to have very thick hair. I've been coloring my hair for years, and in my late 40's it began seriously thinning out. I wonder if there's anything out there, preferably natural that will stimulate my hair follicles. I know Rogaine for women is out there, but I'd really prefer natural products.

I have read that putting coffee on thin hair will help it, as the caffeine is stimulating, couldn't hurt. (09/25/2010)
Coloring your hair shouldn't cause it, since half the women in the US color their hair. Do you take calcium? Too much calcium can cause hair thinning. (09/28/2010)
I don't think it is coloring your hair that is causing this. I suspect it could be hormonal changes or nutrition. Perhaps you could do some research on this on the internet on women's health sites. I don't think there is anything you can put on the hair to improve it. I believe there may be some sort of laser treatment that is available. I saw something on the TV, but I have no firsthand experience. (09/29/2010)
www.hsn.com; go to beauty and to Michael di Cesare products. He has thickening products available as well as a product that does stimulate hair growth. All of his products that I have used are fantastic. Sign up to get an email when he is on; and watch him. Some of his products are not listed on www.hsn.com and go quickly when he is on; if not happy with the product you can return it in 30 days for a full refund.
I have not tried the thickening products, I have tried other of his products and the LiquiFix Mousse I keep on hand all the time! I am very pleased with his products. (10/06/2010)
Steep some fresh rosemary in boiling water and let cool. Strain and use the liquid to rinse your hair after you shampoo - I have seen this work with an elderly lady I knew, the results were amazing! Good luck. (10/23/2010)
