Hair Restoration Options
Thank you for the question. It is important to consult with a physician to determine what is causing your hair loss. I would first recommend going for a complete blood work up, which would help to eliminate any hair loss factors correlating with what could be a thyroid condition, hormone issues, etc. I would also recommend a Scalp Analysis with scope imaging to help determine the state of the present follicles, scalp condition, hair shafts, etc.. At this point it is key to maintain the hair you have now and slow down the loss process. I would ultimately recommend PRP and LLLT, which both have lose risk association. Until there is a better understanding as to why your hair loss was progressing so aggressively.
Hair loss -- PRP, Progesterone, Viviscal, Rogaine, Finesteride
Platelet Rich Plasma is a great option for thickening hair, although with you being young I recommend seeing a hair loss expert first for a scalp analysis.

PRP is a great option for you
Hello. I understand how stressful it is to be loosing hair. Specially being so young. What I can think about whit none to very little side effects is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). This procedure consists on getting some of your blood and putting it in a machine that will separate the different ingredients that are in the blood. From those ingredients we take the growth factors and inject them in your scalp. These growth factors will start working in your follicles enhancing your hair and reducing (and even stopping) the rate of your hair loss. If your follicles have not been dormant for too long the hair can regrow. A hair transplant will be the best and fastest option for you to regain your hairline and maybe you can explore financing options for your procedure. Best of lucks and I hope this answers your concerns and question.
You could try PRP with Acell for your hair loss...
