Hair loss Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey! I'm just curious if anybody here can relate/help me with my hair loss. A few months ago, my hair started to shed a lot more when i would wash it. Now, I had super thick hair, so I was always used to having a lot of shedding, but it was coming out in thicker strands. I went to a doctor about it, and got blood work ran for my thyroid, and nothing came up out of the ordinary. I was told it could be from stress or anxiety. I still don't exactly believe that's what is causing it, I've been through way more stressful times in my life, and my hair never fell out. The whole texture of it has changed as well, it feels dead. I noticed it would feel abnormally soft when i was washing it, I don't exactly know what that was all about. I did take 500 mg of Ciprofloxacin twice a day for 5 days straight, and my hair started to fall out afterwards. I still don't find that to be the likely cause because that has been about 7 or 8 months ago. Still to this day, I'm losing hair, and don't know what to do. I was going to see a dermatologist about it, but I'm tight on money at the moment, and my insurance doesn't cover it. Should I invest in a hair regrowth serum or try to wait it out until I can see another doctor? I'm very lost and have lost a lot of self esteem over this whole ordeal. I'm hoping somebody could give me some insight as to what could possibly be happening. Thanks!

Hey, aside from thyroid have you asked your doctor to test for iron deficiency? A lot of women suffer from hair loss due to this. 

After child birth I went through a period of losing hair and I used a product called 'Divine Herbal Hair Oil' which put a stop to it quite quickly. It's only available in the UK but they ship to me, a bit pricey when including shipping but I don't mind as it works. I think in your situation maybe go back to your doctor and get iron levels tested and if they are low and you are prescribed iron supplements then take Vitamin C to help it absorb and be utilized more efficiently by your body. A lot of folks don't realize that part unfortunately.

Hope this helps :)

Hair loss is a common problem for every girl. Someday ago I had hair falls and I was worried. My mother suggested me to apply coconut oil on the scalp and use onion juice once in the week. I did all these things and went to the Bluedrake parlor for the hair spa. Now my hair fall is less. I suggest you do all these things to get rid of hair loss.

Stress can definitely be a reason you're losing more hair! I notice that I lose more hair at certain times of the year too - whether it's my hair growing new or just from changing of the seasons. I've been looking at a few different supplements like https://www.jupiterlabs.shop/folliclefuel.php .. I think the extra vitamins can't hurt, if anything.

there is a small trick to get insurance coverage for your hair loss. it depends on your job. check with your HR if they have group insurance like this

Group insurance usually covers stuff such as dental and hair losses that is not covered by individual policy.

hope you are lucky enough as not all company has that. I was lucky i got some hair losses and was surprised to get covered.

also for hair loss, i use apple cider vinegar, dilute it with 1 part water 1 part vinegar for a hair solution to cleanse my scalp and hair. learn it from this blogger on using apple cider vinegar for health and hair benefits.

and don't over use hair wax, hair spray too!

Hi, after my first baby I lost alot of hair and didnt want to go through that again. 

I looked into natural remedies and ultimately got MastoorA hair cream for hair loss.

This is the cream I use

This is some of the info about the hair cream

Shea butter

Shea butter contains antifungal and antibacterial properties that prohibit dandruff and bacteria on the scalp. Massaging shea butter into the scalp will soothe the scalp and increase blood circulation. Helps heal a variety of scalp problems.

Shea butter provides moisture to dry and damaged hair from the roots to the tips, leaving it healthy and shiny. Because it’s rich in vitamins A and E, shea butter soothes dryness, repairs breakage, and mends split ends.

Shea butter absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp without clogging pores, leaving a greasy residue, or causing a buildup of oil or dandruff.

 

 Almond oil

Contains all kinds of healthy ingredients for hair like Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, vitamin E, and magnesium. Using Almond oil nourishes and strengthens your hair, and is optimal for treating hair loss and damaged hair

Olive oil

helps thicken the hair softens coarse hair and promotes moisture

Castor Oil

(Great for Moisture/Hair Loss) , castor oil coats the hair shaft and smoothes the cuticle layer, sealing in moisture and leaving the hair feeling soft and silky

Coconut

(Great for Shine) great for nourishing the hair to give it a healthy shine and helps to also minimize tangles.  Coconut oil is also recommended for the control of dry scalp and dandruff

Argan Oil 

(Great for moisture and growth) Stimulates hair growth, softens hair and nourishes deep into the hair shaft . Argan oil has been used for years to maintain long healthy hair and supple skin .

Onion Oil

Using onion oil on a regular basis will effectively prevent and treat baldness. Onion oil is rich in sulfur which prevents breakage, split ends and thinning of hair.

Onion oil contributes to having shiny, soft healthy hair.

Rosemary oil

is believed to increase cellular metabolism that stimulates hair growth. Rosemary is one of the best oils for enhancing hair growth, which thickens the hair. 

Cedarwood oil 

Cedarwood oil can help stimulate the hair follicles by increasing circulation to the scalp. This can contribute to hair growth and slow hair loss! Cedarwood can help treat thinning hair and various types of alopecia, too.

Clary Sage oil

Clary Sage essential oil can help balance scalp oils. Sage has some similar properties as rosemary essential oil due its ability to increase cellular metabolism. As well, it mimics some benefits found in clary sage

 

I hope you find what works for you

There are many ways for hair loss prevention. LET ME TELL YOU SOME THAT WERE HELPFUL TO ME :

1.Balanced diet:

A balanced diet is essential not just for overall health, but also for hair. Eating food with all proper nutrients is a must. Hair is much benefitted from protein-intake. This curbs hair loss and hair loss prevention are very much possible easily. Eat lots of beans, lentils, paneer and milk and its other products.

2. Hydrate well:

 Drinking water is the most underrated way to ensure good overall health as also good hair. Each hair shaft is one-quarter water, so you need to remain hydrated well. Having eight to twelve glasses of water in a day is ideal.

3. Massage: 

Massaging scalp and hair can do wonders for hair. Using oil to massage the hair and scalp will have multiple benefits for hair depending on the oil that is used and its properties. The oil penetrates into the hair shaft, adding strength and moisture to it. There is less damage to hair because of this leading to hair loss prevention. For this hair massage, use warm oil. Gently massage it onto the scalp.

4. Hair mask: 

The moisture in hair needs to be preserved for hair loss prevention as dry hair can get brittle easily. The masks are made of different oils, butter and such hydrating ingredients that help boost the moisture in the hair. You get different hair masks for different hair types. Choose the one that suits your hair. Always wash your hair with a mild shampoo before applying a hair mask.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
