Hi everyone, This is the first time I've posted here, I've been suffering hair loss for the past 2.5 years after stopping Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (which I'd only been on for about a year at the time of discontinuation)....I've lost about 30% of my hair, have a widening part and bald spot on my crown, shed over 100 hairs a day, and have lost all shine, softness and volume to my hair. It basically feels like cotton candy static, if I pull it up straight it will literally stay in place like that since there's no little weight to it. It's as if my hair was put through some chemical processor or something that stripped it of all luster, health, shine, everything. For 2 years I did basically everything except minoxidil - supplements, trichology serums, laser combs etc. For the first year I was convinced it was a thyroid or nutritional thing, but everything checked out okay and I think the Androgenetic Alopecia is due to the hormonal hell of stopping the pill and developing an oily scalp for the first time in my life. Anyway, has anyone had any success with the danish extract Harklinikken? It's wildly expensive, and they are vague about the ingredients and clinical results, but I was sucked in and have been using the program for about 2 months now. I don't even care about getting my full head of hair back at this point, I just want the texture to go back to normal. I can barely run my fingers through my hair anymore and have been wearing it in a braid or bun every day for 2.5 years since they're the only hairstyles I can manage. I miss wearing my hair down so much. Any thoughts? Has anyone tried both Hark and minoxidil and been able to make a comparison? I'm drawn to Harklinikken since it's all naturally derived, no chemicals.
