An underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism, can be caused by a thyroid gland that is damaged by radiation therapy, medications or because it has been removed. One treatment for hypothyroidism is Synthroid, a synthetic thyroid medication known generically as levothyroxine.
Hair loss is a known side effect of taking Synthroid. It could be caused by the wrong dosage, or even by the fillers an dyes in the medication. Both doses that are too high and doses that are not high enough can cause hair loss.
Indeed, there are many interrelated effects hypothyroidism, including hormone imbalances and nutrient deficiencies. Indeed, there have been cases where people apparently grew hair after using Synthroid, but these cases are not well-documented and can be due to several other causes.
Because of the anecdotal evidence that Synthroid may cause hair growth, many people whether it can be a possible solution for hair loss. It isn’t, and taking Synthroid unnecessarily can have major, unpleasant side effects like weight gain, extreme fatigue, and others that make it very risky.

You will immediately see the difference and feel your confidence restored. People will not be able to tell you had a scalp micropigmentation procedure – unless you tell them. We can even make scars on your head virtually disappear with our scalp camouflage procedure.
