How are you handling Hair Loss? What products have you used to treat hair loss?
What would you recommend? Are your emotions (stress) causing you to lose hair?

I have mentioned this on several discussions about chronic hair loss when I was on Pioglitazone I started on Doo Gro products, on the 13th December 2010 it claimed to stop hair loss and regrowth would be around 12-15 inches per year. Yeah right I thought but over 6 months later i have regrowth from half an inch to 6 inches all over my head the pioglitazone was stopped on the 4th February this year nearly 2 months after I started using these products, so I know they work.At present I am using the Stimulating oil, medicated revitalizer, shampoo and conditioner.

try biotin. I was having loss and started taking biotin 2x daily. It slowed down for a bit, but was still dropping out. Then I started shampooing my hair with a shampoo from Bluespring aka superbluestuff. Makers of products with emu oil. They also have a conditioner. 3 days later I noticed very little hair on the shower floor. But which one was it??? Not wanting to find out, I still use both. I get it on line.

I, too, am losing my hair; I asked the doctor about it last week; he feels it is probably due to either a thyroid problem or anemia, and ordered a couple of blood tests for those. Waiting to hear the results. It really bothers me - I used to have the most beautiful hair - some things about growing older are pretty annoying!

You said a lot my dear. I feel the same way. If it isn't one thing it is another, day in and day out. It would be easy to give up but I am a fighter and I know you are too!

It can also be hormonal (like low thyroid), especially if you are a woman. I'm like Jayabee52 - male pattern, nothing I can do - not worth the time, money, etc. to do anything but accept it.

I have 3 words to describe my hair loss: "male pattern baldness". I don't like losing my hair but don't worry about it either. Haven't tried a remedy either.

I'm losing hair myself and would like to know what products are best for treating this. I feel it is from stress and maybe not eating nutriously. Have not consulted with anyone as to how to go about this.

I had a problem with losing hair too. I talked to the dr…He did several blood test. I had a severe viatmin D deficincy and my thyroid was low. So he started me on Vitamin D 2,000 once a day and synthroid 0.05 and I am happy to say I have stopped losing hair…its actually growing back.
