  1. Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

    is it tellogen effluvium? No one knows. Usually telogen effluvium would show up months after a trigger is first present. In my case my hair loss was instant. My hair also mainly shed in the typical DHT-sensitive MPB areas. My guess is it made us more suspectible to MPB by either changing follicular sensitivity to DHT or by maybe eliminating the normal protective layer of the scalp(sebum).

    Topical application has a lower potential side effects than ingesting the ingredient systemically. I can't say anything about the efficacy of systemic or topical saw palmetto though. Unless you have androgenetic alopecia I doubt it will do anything at all. Have you ruled out all other possible causes? Maybe go to a dermatologist and have her look at it. If she thinks it's androgenetic try this: Dermarolling 2x a week, applying minoxidil with castor oil one day and then topical saw palmetto the other.

    @CraigstI take 50mg iron biglyscinate with some Vitamin C every couple of days. Can't say if it helped. My iron levels were low though, that's why I take it. @sean jI don't know to be honest. I have played around with Detoxadine, Selenium, Cysteine, iron and biotin. All are said to be beneficial for your hair.I don't take them every day though, just every 2-3 days a drop of detoxadine and 1 tablet each of the other stuff. I think taking good care of your hair and scalp is important too

    My hair has definitely stopped falling out now. My hairline is filling in nicely and my hair is thick all around. It still is a bit dry compared to before B5 but it's no big deal. I definitely believe B5 caused some sort of hormonal issue and led to a decrease in my overall health. Anyway, I took finasteride for 2 weeks exactly 1 year ago. I didn't have any bad sides while I was on the drug but some unpleasant sides that started after I quit the stuff. I'd be careful with finasteride/dut/saw palmetto

    What is "dim"? I'm not taking a lot of supplements atm, only basic stuff like Omega 3, Vitamin C and iron/magnesium a couple of times a week. Don't stress yourself dude, it's just hair
