I have that problem, too. I used to have thick hair when I was younger, then started losing it after my daughter was born. It got even worse after I had my son. I'm ok in the back, but right in front where everyone can see, it is very thin. I just read an article about the wonders of castor oil for hair growth. I had never heard of such a thing, but was looking up castor oil for joint pain and it came up. Several sites said that certain types of castor oil sold in health stores or ordered online work wonders for hair growth issues. You rub it in to your scalp, leave on for a while, and wash it out. I am going to give it a try. It's cheap and it can't hurt!

Hi,thank you for sharing. I am going to book an accupunture session ASAP as my friend told me that helped her.
