I know what you mean! I also can see my scalp, and I am very self-conscious about it. I will try biotin, along with my rogaine, and hope and pray they work!

Hello I have just started a supplement that my hairstylist suggested. It is called biotin and is available at a heath food store. I have looked into what strength to take and I have heard anywhere from 1000mg to 5000mg I have stated at 2000mg....will see how it goes. I not only want to stop losing hair, but regrow some of which I have lost! I can see my scalp now and it is scaring me! Don't want to lose it all!! HELP!

I tried Nioxin and rogaine with no luck. What do you think about the Kerastase?

I totally agree with you. I can't go near Pantene. It's too strong for me, even their hair fall formula.

For the most part I've been using a local brand here called Sunsilk for Hairfall. But I've also been taking turns with Pregaine (which is supposed to be used with the Minoxidil) and Kerastase for Hair Loss. ;)

What kind of shampoo/conditioner do you use? it makes a huge difference. Garnier is the worst I have used. Pantene is pretty bad. The more expensive ones are worth the money as far as hairloss goes - if I use cheap stuff I lose bunches of hair, but if I use like paul mitchell or nexxus, I don't lose nearly as much. I think it's the alcohol in cheaper hair products. Paul Mitchell doesn't have the alcohol - so it doesn't lather as much either, but it still works well.

I was wondering the same thing about hair loss. I've been using rogaine for about a month. My hair seems to still be falling out. It may take a few months to notice a difference, but I'm just really sick of having such thin hair! Thank you for the supplements. I'm going to definitely try these.

I was told that vitamin B complex helps and it certainly does for me! :)

Up to a year ago my hair was falling out, then I entered menopause and it just stopped falling out ... I so thought I was going to go bald or at least have bald patches but nope its been just over a year now and I've actually not lost any more hair - which has been a nice side effect of menopause.

Hope you find what works for you and your hair loss, I'm not sure if it is part of it but a week after I went into menopause I was put on Long Lasting Insulin injections so that might be part of the reason that I've not had any hair loss - I don't really know.

Hi girls!

I'm sure you may have discussed this before, but I'm wondering what you girls have been doing for hair loss. I've brought this up several times with my doctor and she just keeps pumping me with vitamins and told me to apply Minoxidil (Rogaine). But my hair is still falling out, even though I've chopped it all off - and I really loved loved loved my long hair but I'm trying to work this short 'do.

This has been going on for almost a year now and I'm afraid I'm going to lose all of it, if I can't get something done.

These are the supplements/meds I'm taking:

Metformin 500mg
One a day multivitamin for women
Tocovid (some kind of antioxidant, lotsa vitamin e every other day)
Glutathione (another antioxidant supposed to help with my acne and hair)
Diane 35
Ferrous Sulfate
Folart (Folic Acid 5mg)
Chromium 400 - 800mg (super helped with the carb cravings)

I feel like I left something out. Haha. There's so many of them I forget. But I've been applying Minoxidil to my scalp once or twice a day (twice if I remember).

Your thoughts?
