Home remedy/vitamin to help stop hair loss?- Health & Home Remedies

I am just curious if anyone here would have an answer for me. I was talking to someone at a party recently and complaining about all the hair that falls out and then clogs drains, makes a mess on the floor, etc. They suggested that maybe I was missing some sort of vitamin/mineral/supplement. It

    Default Home remedy/vitamin to help stop hair loss?


    I am just curious if anyone here would have an answer for me. I was
    talking to someone at a party recently and complaining about all the
    hair that falls out and then clogs drains, makes a mess on the floor,
    etc. They suggested that maybe I was missing some sort of
    vitamin/mineral/supplement. It made me think that maybe it is true and
    if anyone has any idea of what type I might be needing? I thought it
    was from stress, we recently made a huge move again (second one in a
    year) and it has been a bit hectic in our household. Things have
    settled down some in the past couple of weeks but some days it seems

    like a ton of hair comes out and it is driving me nuts! I have had to
    clean the drain in our tub out twice already and we have only lived
    here a month! Does anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks! Kerry

    Try prenatal vitamins, they make your hair really healthy, and help
    promote growth, so maybe those will help. They are very healthy in
    general, too.

    a home remedy might help after you find out the cause. Hair loss can be caused
    by a number of things. Thyroid and hormones can be a couple of things. But
    these need blood tests to determine. If you are loosing that much hair I would
    contact your doctor

    Kerry if you haven't had your thyroid checked you might want to do that.
    Thyroid being off balance can cause hair loss and you sure seem to be having

    a lot going down the drain.
    Good luck, Barbara

    No, prenatal vitamins will NOT make you gain weight. Weight gain with
    prenatal is associated with having a baby make you bigger. The vitamins
    are simply filled more with things geared towards women. When you are
    pregnant, your body needs more of certain things, which can be gained
    from the vitamins. The baby tends to "leech" off your own resources, so
    you go through things faster, which is where the vitamins come in. They
    are 100% safe for non-pregnant women to take them. I'm not sure how
    they'd deal with men, though.

    I have the same problem. We have 8 cats and a dog and I think I used to shed
    worse than all of them put together! I started upping my B vitamins and I also
    rinse with rosemary lavender apple cider vinegar and once a week do a hot
    rosemary oil shampoo. Seems to be helping.

    store

    hooves...supposed to strengthen hair and nails. I used to use it till I
    ran out-- and it lasted a long time!

    You don't have to go to an animal supply store for this. It's called Mane &
    Tail (I think!) and you can get it at Wal-Mart.

    I have the same problem & my hairdresser said it was from lack of protein.
    She suggested making my own beef jerky in a food dehydrator. She said if you
    buy a roast, you can have the butcher slice it thin and use it to make the
    jerky. Haven't tried it yet, but sounds plausible.

    Vitamin B12 deficiency will also cause this problem. You can get the oral
    tablets to dissolve under the tongue rather than take the injectable B12. The
    oral tabs contain a high dose because very little actually gets absorbed in
    the GI tract. Not all B supplements contain B12. At first I thought it was my
    hyperthyroidism, then the methamazole drug I took to control it. Then a doctor
    friend advised upping my B12 intake and that seems to have done the trick- very
    little hairloss now and my hair has regained its thickness. Also great for
    preventing jet lag and for the occasionally imbibing too much alcohol at the
    party.

    Do you know of an online or mail order source for B12?
