  • I'm losing hair :(

    For the past year I think, I have been losing a lot of hair. I don't know why, I may not get enough proteins or something (although I have been taking multi-vitamins lately), but it is really annoying. And now I have really thin and fragile hair. My cousin had to shave her hair off, and I'm really worried I'm gonna have to do the same, because I've been saving since I was 13. I am now 16. Is there anything I can do??

  • Hello there

    With the vitamins that you are currently taking just check to see if there is an adequate dosage of vitamin B, also i recommend finding a shampoo and conditioner that will help prevent hair loss and breakage. Might be a bit more expensive than the other products but in the long run...perfect!

    Vitamin B is usually found in whole grains, fresh fruit, brewer's yeast, eggs, fish, turkey, meat, and milk.

    Also Vitamin E has also been proven to help with hair loss, Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates the scalp by increasing blood circulation. An increase in blood circulation makes more nutrients available to the hair follicles so they can grow stronger, healthier hair.


    • You may want to get your thyroid function checked


      • You also need to make sure you are getting enough protein.

        You can also try taking Biotin. Also, look at Nioxin hair care products.


        • 1. You can full cover the olive oil before you wash your hair.
          2. Try to keep a happy mood.
          3. More exercises.
          4. No more food has much fat.
          5. Try to have a enough sleep.

          Hope your problem can be solve as short as possible and keep fit in the future...


          • The multivitamins are a good start, have you been tested for alopecia or other hair loss conditions?
