I will try to keep this short. I have posted here before with my stories, but will try to be brief. Almost three years ago, i started to thin. I was 47 years old and in perimenopause. Lots of stress in my life at that time as well. Also using Retin A by the buckets (big no no!). Anyway, I noticed hair flucuations over this time. Sometimes bald shiny areas, sometimes they appeared to get filled in, but always thin in the bang and temple area. 4-1/2 months ago, i began to drink organic apple cider vinegar from the health food store diluted in water throughout the day. I cannot tell you how much exactly but I would guess around 4-5 tablespoons and keep adding water to dilute. I cannot tell you how much better my hair is today. Lots of regrowth and can't see through it anymore in the daylight. I used to use toppik every day, several times a day. I only use very little toppik now once every other day. I don't know if the ACV is what has helped, but I will continue for the next few months and update. I have reason to believe that the ACV is a toxic cleanse. It reduces and elimiates inflamation within the body including the scalp. This may not will work for everyone, but I do believe it worked for me. I have been hesitating writing because I do not want to give anyone false hope, but if this helps one person, then I think it is worth it. Just so you know what else I do, I take a good multi vitamin and two hair vitamin pills (I think called Follica...can't remember). I also only shampoo every other day with Nioxin shampoo (been doing that for all three years). I read where people use ACV on their scalp when washing, but I decided do tackle the problem from the inside out. I will post back in a few months with an update. Too much ACV can harm stomache and teeth so be careful to use wisely and dilute..dilute..dilute with water.
