I'm going to tell you about my hair problem and really worry about it. I had long, silky and shiny hair but from last 4 months i'm losing my hairs very quickly. Hair looks dead and dry.And i'm losing my hairs from last 4 month and I didn't notice any thing but after 2 weeks i felt pain at my scalp and even skin was absoutly clean and clear but when i pull my hair i feel pain. I went to see my GP she said everything is fine. she took the blood samples for tyriod galnd test and reporst said everything is fine and she recommeded me a shampoo which was crap. I went to see my GP again but she said your scalp is fine and not a problem and it will be fine in few weeks but no results. Then i went to see herbal doctor, the good thing is that herbal doctor asked all the things in detail like what i eat in breakfast then lunch and dinner and she gave me shampoo and that is great and i'm still using it. And she gave me some herbal liquid medince for hair growth and after using that hairs really getting better but still falling. One important thing whenver i eat something or do little bit physical exercise or just clean my flat, i feel like my chest is burning. It is happeneing from last 4 weeks. I'm using olive oil for hair and for cooking but no change same condition hair falling. Please give me advice that what should i do. I have also attached the image of my current hair situation and one is old one. Please help me.

  • are you suffering from stress or any eating disorders? rosemary oil massaged into the scalp (mix it with a base oil) can encourage new hair growth as well as a shampoo called vivagen made by redken.stop touching your scalp. I know it will be hard...but its important....try talking to a really good hairdresser..i've also heard coming off the contracepive pill can help..the hormones might be affecting you but finish out the month, thats how to stop.it might be some emotion that is causing it..stress..so try not to stress about it..have you noticedany changes in your skin?hope that is of help.

  • I'm very thankful you gave me very useful information. i went to Newzealand to see my brother and there i met a dermatologist. He said if you are losing your hair so they will never grow again cause in mens, hair focils just lost all the roots when one hair falls. And in womens hairs can grows again. So i was so surprised to hear that. But I used Noukrin course, shampoo, sculp lotion and conditioner and not taking medicine. And i noticed that it is getting thicker and still falling but feels like its growing again from roots. . I have no stress just feel so odd when i see my hairs are falling. I want your suggestion that hairs can grows again in mens or not??. Thanks for all your help and writing very useful infirmation. really appreciated. Jones

  • You can first try with a healthy diet: fruits, vegetables, berries. Sunflower seeds are great for hair and nails. Cystine, vitamins and minerals are essential for hair quality. You say you are not stressed but I must say that even though you may not be aware of it, your body may be under a lot of stress. So you need to get a good night sleep, a lot of fresh air and water. If you don't like having little bottles around you all the time, drink tea:) Check for some pills containing calcium, d-pantothenate, vit. B6, B1, B2, B12, folic acid, biotin, zinc, iron etc...-that's excellent for hair issues.Remember, you may not see changes in hair immediately, it takes a while for it to regenerate.

  • Been on minoxidil ( R0gaine® ) for about a year and a half and have not seen even the smallest amount of regrowth that i almost fell into depression.My hair only started visibly growing on the bald spot after skeptically trying out the various natural techniques to re-grow lost hair @ http://www.regrowmyhair.info I would highly recommend this easy to follow step-by-step guide with pictures to anyone who is suffering from hair loss right now. But remember this isn't a miracle cure for baldness as you will also need to put in some effort in order to see results. And its only a minimum commitment of 15 minutes a day to help re-grow your lost hair.Anyway, its also a cheaper and effective way of re-growing lost hair compared to those unnatural ways which may involve harsh chemicals that may have side effects.

  • Thank goodness I figured it out! Low estrogen! I am 42 and have been on synthroid for eight years. Three years ago I quit taking the birth control pills and about six months later my hair started falling out; probably 20-30 hairs in the shower and another 25 when I combed my hair out. Last year, I went on the pill for three months and my hair quit falling out. A couple months after I quit the pill when my hair loss resumed. This year I started having peri-menopausal hot flashes so I started taking soy. When the hot flashes went away, I stopped taking it. While I was on soy, I had significantly less hair loss and within a month or so of quitting my hair started falling out again. However in the last three months I have had the worst hair loss of my life…clumps at a time and now you can actually see my scalp. I went to the doctor twice and they could not help, they gave me a consult to derm, which was no help…he just took blood to make sure I was not low on iron. I was going crazy waiting because every time I washed my hair I would lose 200-400 hairs. I started only washing my hair twice a week because it was so depressing. On non washing days I would lose 135-150 just combing my hair in the morning.I did a lot of research on the internet and initially thought my hair loss was related to synthroid because I had a lot of other side effects which I did not know were related to synthroid until I started doing the research on my hair loss. On Sunday I washed my hair and I think I lost 500 hairs, probably the most I ever lost. I was so upset I started crying. I jumped on the internet and proceeded to do more research on hair loss when I found an article on estrogen and hair loss. That is when I put it all together and started taking more soy. The results:- Sunday 500 hairs lost (washed hair); started taking soy- Tuesday 71 hairs lost- Wednesday 49 hairs lost - Thursday 70 hairs lost (washed hair) I am not taking anything fancy; just 50 mcg twice a day of the drug store brand of soy. I also had another doctor appt today and my doc switched me to armour to try to help some of my other side effects of synthroid so hopefully that will help the headaches and mood swings that I think are related to synthriod.Okay, it has been six weeks and I can say my hair loss has stopped. I actually washed my hair last week and only lost two hairs in the shower (although yesterday I lost seven hairs). I really hope this helps someone as I was trying everything and anything I read about that might help me.

  • Be very careful when taking soy. Read the recent reports on all of the side effects. I think I will pass on this cure.

  • All kinds of hair loss can be associated with scalp pain. You might just have a Telogen effluvium fancy word for hair shedding. It could just pass it could be low estrogen, low thyroid all kinds of things. I never figured out my problem and I even added estrogen, nothing no help at all. Just ride it out and see what happens.

  • Many things can cause hair loss. For example, about 3 or 4 months after an illness or a major surgery, you may suddenly lose a large amount of hair. This hair loss is related to the stress of the illness and is temporary. Hormonal problems may cause hair loss. If your thyroid gland is overactive or underactive, your hair may fall out. This hair loss usually can be helped by treatment thyroid disease. Hair loss may occur if male or female hormones, known as androgens and estrogens, are out of balance. Correcting the hormone imbalance may stop your hair loss. Some medicines can cause hair loss. This type of hair loss improves when you stop taking the medicine. Medicines that can cause hair loss include blood thinners (also called anticoagulants), medicines used for gout, medicines used in chemotherapy to treat cancer, vitamin A (if too much is taken), birth control pills and antidepressants. Certain infections can cause hair loss. Fungal infections of the scalp can cause hair loss in children. The infection is easily treated with antifungal medicines. Finally, hair loss may occur as part of an underlying disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Since hair loss may be an early sign of a disease, it is important to find the cause so that it can be treated. Depending on your type of hair loss, treatments are available. If a medicine is causing your hair loss, your doctor may be able to prescribe a different medicine. Recognizing and treating an infection may help stop the hair loss. Correcting a hormone imbalance may prevent further hair loss. Also, early hair loss can be hereditary. So before you find a hair loss remedy, you should find out what the cause of your hair loss is first.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • You can try these simple tips:* Dissolve 2 aspirins in any anti-dandruff shampoo, lightly massage into scalp and wash your hair. This really works I have tried it myself.* Use almond oil to massage your scalp. Dip a towel in hot water, squeeze lightly and wrap it around the hair. Repeat this thrice or four times until the towel becomes cold. * Mix cosmetic vinegar (2 tablespoons) into hot water (6 tablespoons). Dip cotton and dab into the scalp. Part the hair with a comb as you apply all over the scalp. This should be preferably done at bed time. To avoid staining the pillow, you can tie a scarf over your hair. Wash off your hair next morning with shampoo. After the hair is thoroughly cleansed pour over as a last rinse a mixture of three tablespoons of cosmetic vinegar and one cup of hot water. Then dry the hair thoroughly. You can do this two times a week for 3 months. HTH :D
