Minoxydil 5 % is an over the counter solution that men going bald use to regrow their hair. It does work, but there is no guarantee that you will grow all your hair back. It should grow noticeably though. It maybe pricey too, about 17$ or more for about 6 ounces of liquid product. It may take a few weeks to a few months before you see results. There maybe other products that you can use in conjunction with Minoxydil 5%, just look at the products next to the Minoxydil 5% on the shelf. There are also vitamins that are specific to growing hair. They will work, but because your nails are made of similar material as hair, they will grow very quickly, finger and toe nails both. Try messaging your scalp yourself or have someone do it for you. They also have electrical devices that will electrically stimulate your scalp. If your hair grows back and it should because women never really lose their hair. Men produce a chemical that causes the hair follicles to shrink. Women don't produce this chemical, so you should, in theory, have it easier growing your hair back.
Also consider leaving your hair short forever, and wear wigs. This way, you never have to iron it to straighten it and therefore burn it and your skin and follicles into oblivion. I know several black women that look beautiful with their "hair systems." They have them in different styles, lengths, colors, and textures, such as dreadlocks, curls, spiked, and smooth and shiny. Good luck!

The Minoxydil is actually about $25. There is a DHT blocker which supposedly keeps a msn from going bald. I font know if it works on women . Good luck!
