Im female in my 40s with fine thin lifeless hair that seems not to grow. My hair is not damaged & I wash it once a week with top products containing protein & keratin. I have no bald spots but its thinning. Blood tests including thyroid are normal could your product help ??
It's difficult to know if it will help but as it is a topical application the amount absorbed internally is quite small so definitely worth a try.
I have very fine hair, its like baby hair. Its thick but the texture is such that it won't even take a curl from a curling iron without putting stuff on it. I just started using aussie aussome volume mousse and I am amazed at the control and volume I have now. There are other tricks too, to make it look fuller. Your hairdresser can cut your hair with a "texturizer" it makes the hair fuller. Always blowing it dry will help too, if you blow it up opposite the direction it will be eventually.
The most common reason for "fine lifeless thin hair in a woman in her 40s is a condition known as female pattern hair loss. I would advise you to see a dermatologist to confirm. The number one, and only FDA approved treatment for female pattern hair loss is minoxidil.
So provided your dermatologist confirms what all the information you have shared is pointing to - yes, minoxidil is a reasonable staring point.
