Hello all! When my hair loss first started about 5 years ago (MAJOR hair loss last December) I went through these forums and honestly got so very discouraged. I promised myself that if my hair ever came back I would write my story and share with others who are going through the same thing!! In November, December of 2010 and January and February of 2011 I started losing a substantial amount of hair. I was so worried, bawled my eyes out every time I showered and saw the webs of hair in my fingers, it was the most horrible experience I have ever been through in my life!!! I got a Dr. appointment with my family Dr. who ordered bloodwork and referred me to a dermatologist. When the blood work came back, my ferritin was found to be 18 which is low but still in the normal range (according to my normal doctor). The dermatologist prescribed Iron pills (red capsules) because he said in order for normal hair growth, the ferritin should be around 65. He also set me up for a scalp biopsy. I was so hopeful they would find something, as I was losing 500 -600 hairs a day. I thought by the time my appointment came around again I would be completely bald. (I was losing it from all over my head, not in patches). A few weeks later I got my biopsy results back (in March sometime) and he said "Sorry, but the results show female pattern baldness). I was devastated. A week later, I went to a different doctor (to get an allergy shot) and he noticed my hair was really thinning hard core, and he told me to take a complex B vitamin (I took the liquid one from Nutter's) and EXTRA B6 (Jamieson) so I started taking these vitamins. I started feeling so much better from the inside out (I had no idea how sick and tired I was) suddenly I had energy!! (In February I also started taking Evening Primrose Oil, Copper and Zinc). I shampooed with Nizoral 2% every day for 1 week, then every other day for weeks 2 and 3 then twice a week, however even before I started shampooing with Nizoral my hairloss had started slowing! Within a week of the B6 and Complex B vitamins my hairloss had stopped completely but my head was a little itchy. I went for a hair cut in April, and my hairdresser noticed that more than more than HALF of my hair was in regrowth phase. (Actually everyone around me noticed it was getting thicker). It is now June, and I am still getting new regrowth and no more scalp showing except for a very little bit in my part lines. I was so worried because my scalp was showing all over in Jan and Feb, and I thought it would take at least a year to fill in. After going through it it took 2 weeks TOPS and it was much MUCH less noticeable (I could finally go out in public with no hat) I just hope EVERYONE out there tries these vitamins ESPECIALLY B6 (and B Vitamin complex to make sure they are all in line, because just taking B6 can cause a deficiency in other B vitamins). Your pee should be bright yellow, and its almost impossible to take too much (don't try it though) because it is excreted in urine. I take liquid so I can take smaller doses three times a day. Take them for 2-3 weeks and you should see improvement by then if you are deficient. I have more hair right now and for the past 3 months than I have had since highschool (I am 28 right now) AND its still coming in!! I hope this gives everyone at least a little encouragement. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I'll try and check this often. I might have missed something in my regimen that I used, so if I think of anything else I was taking I will add it later. Good luck to all, and keep the faith!!
