Thyroid hair loss can manifest in both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. In those with thyroid hair loss, there will be a general thinning of the hair without the bald patches characteristic of male pattern baldness.
Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, dry skin, abnormal sensitivity to cold, constipation and depression. If you have one or more of these symptoms along with loss of hair, think about getting tested for thyroid problems.
Synthroid is commonly prescribed in hypothyroidism; this medication is effective, however, it can produce thyroid hair loss as a side effect for some people. Your hair loss may be due to Synthroid, so speak to your doctor about the possibility. Thyroid hair loss can also occur if you are under-treated. A Thyroid Stimulating Hormone level of around 1-2 is optimal for a large number of people who are suffering from hypothyroidism with no hair loss.
Evening primrose oil supplements are one alternative therapy that some have found to be useful in alleviating thyroid hair loss. Aromatherapy is another which is reported to be effective. Essential oils of thyme, cedar wood oil, lavender, and rosemary can be blended and applied to the scalp to help encourage hair growth.
Ayurveda medicines such as Bhingaraj oil or brahmi oil have also been used to treat hair loss due to thyroid conditions. Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Antoinette_Boulay

Even before I noticed my hair improving, I looked forward to my sessions because the employees are very personable. They are sensitive to the needs of their clients as a whole, as well as being attentive to me as an individual. It continues to be a very positive experience for me and I hope other women who may be struggling with hair loss consider this program. I truly feel if it can make a difference for me it can make a difference for anyone.* Theresa O. | Tempe, Arizona
