You can speak to your endocrinologist about using progesterone cream. It can help balance your thyroid levels and regrow new hair. Progesterone is a hormone that helps with hair loss. Here is a link where you can take a look about thyroid and hair loss. http://www.womhoo.com/progesteronehelpshairthinningandhairloss.aspx.

If you have any questions I'm glad to help.

It is difficult to say if your hair will grow back or not. It is dependent upon the severity of thyroid imbalance. A product such as Rogaine can stimulate hair growth and slow balding. However, most new hair is lost within months after the drug is stopped.
