    Hi Ladies! I posted awhile back but I thought I'd return to update. My hair has COMPLETELY stopped falling out (began in 2013 and had been getting progressively worse). I'm talking like 10 hairs total when showering and drying my hair when it was hundreds just a few months ago.

    Here's all the crazy stuff I've done (something on this list helped lol) since July 2016 when my hair was at rock bottom:

    ~got off of BC pills completely
    ~got ferratin up to 100
    ~got vitamin D levels up (was deficient)
    ~began supplementing zinc
    ~Viviscal
    ~Digestive enzymes with every meal
    ~3000 mg fish oil/day
    ~Collagen peptides in coffee
    ~Men's rogaine
    ~Progesterone cream 2 half of cycle
    ~majorly cleaned up my diet (cut way back on sugar and soy)

    I am wishing you ALL. THE. BEST. <3


    edit: I posted this in "tell your story".. ughhh sorrry

    Another story that I wished were posted in "Recovery" portion so others can read it! I see you haven't posted anything since, so I'm sure you're well into recovery! At one point reading back in your previous posts, you had more hair loss after using rogaine. That seems normal to me.

    I doubt you will be back to respond but...are you still using rogaine? If so, your recovery might be because of the use of rogaine and you are one of the lucky ones who respond well to minoxidil. OR it might be that it just ran it's course and you would have recovered regardless. I too am deficient in Vitamin D and was told by a reputable hair loss specialist that Vitamin D is a huge contributor to hair loss and hair gain. I have my money on Vitamin D being a lot of the culprit or taking part in much of hair loss issues. Too bad we won't know for certain!

    Hey JenVoy!! I randomly just decided to check in today :D My hair is still growing in beautifully! No more shedding!

    Yes, I still use Rogaine morning and night (sometimes I skip if I'm feeling lazy and it does not have a negative impact) I think that Rogaine is making my hair grow, but correcting deficiencies and everything I listed above is what stopped the loss. Keep it up with your Vit D! It could be it for you. Best of luck :)

    Hi Ashleemae, I am basically doing the same program. My hair has also filled in. Please update periodically. I started this program November 1st and I do not shed any. I hope this continues for both of us.

    @losing_it I use Emerita Pro-gest... I use is the 2nd half of my cycle and measure 1/4 tsp and apply it to my neck/chest area. I found this brand at Whole Foods but I think it's sold on amazon. :)

    How long did you use regaine for before your hair stopped shedding. I am under 60 days use and it hasnt changed anything. Was thinking of stopping using it.
