Thinning Hair- Women
Ok so when I initially wrote this hub I was under the impression that I was just randomly losing my hair. Thought it was stress or my alcohol consumption. I contacted my doctors because I was becoming more and more concerned. As it turns out I am having problems with my thyroid AND on top of that I forgot that I was losing lots of needed nutrients through my menstruls. I was bleeding for at least 4 months almost constantly. My doctors are trying to find out why now.
Since I started taking vitamins it seems that my hair has improved but I cut it off cause I was tired of looking at it...
Original Post: I have read a few post here and I decided to try my own regemine of things to improve my thinning hair.I saw the forum about Viviscal and i found the ingredients on a site. Some ppl swear by the stuff but others know its basically a supplement vitamin that you could buy in a supermarket for half the price of viviscal.
I am 31 years old today, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! and I went and bought fish oil pills(taking 2 daily) and ginko bilbo(2 at each meal daily). I plan to buy an organic shampoo and conditioner and follow up with morning and nighttime sprays of a product called African Royale BRX Braid & Extensions Sheen Spray. Its good for the hair and scalp and has a lot of the natural ingredients that can help with hair loss (Tea tree leaf oil, sage, henna, burdock root, alfalfa, ginseng and many more).
I posted some pictures of my hair as it is now, dry and wet. I plan to submit other pictures as I see results.
I added a one a day vitamin for women and 500mg calcium pills. I also brought E-sen-cia shampoo and conditioner, its 95+% organic. Found it at Rite Aid.
Feb 2, 2010 I added Jojoba Oil and Tea Tree Oil to my African Royale Spray. I pray that I see some benefits soon. I will post new pics by March.
