Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

1,416 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

So, it seems that everyone is having scalp issues. I guess this is due to the peroxidation of and/or decrease in the amount of sebum our sebaceous glands produce.

I've developed a formula (a concoction of essential and carrier oils) that is quite effective at alleviating the symptoms of itchy/irritated scalp. With daily applications of this serum, my scalp feels a lot better. I’d be happy to share it with you if anyone is interested.

Has anyone had any improvement in his or her symptoms with the glandular and colostrum supplementation?

Sure discomfortzone share away! My scalp has been unbearably itchy/flaky for almost 4 years. Although my scalp has been producing an excess amount of sebum. It is constantly oily.

Just had an appointment with the endocrinologist. Turns out my thyroid is good enough to not warrant treatment.

That means I can now eliminate thyroid as a cause.

Im leaning more and more towards MPB though as the cause, I just hope that taking B5 for one week has not killed my hair for the rest of my life.

Any news on the colostrum/potassium iodide?

My hair is going pretty slowly in MPB fashion since I first took B5 5 years ago. So I started losing my hair at 21 and am now 1-2 inches receded.

I will be right on this when it becomes available.

First he said you were hypothyroid and now you are not?

Basically, yes.

My TSH was 3.1 when I had my practician do a blood test, so nothing unusual. I then went to a endocrinologist and my TSH was 4.3 but the ultrasound showed nothing unusual, so he sent me to the nuclear medicine department of a hospital. I had another blood test and ultrasound done. After the ultrasound the doctor said I was hypothyroid and that I would need thyroid medication, yesterday I got a letter with my lab results(TSH was 1.4) and it said I should just consume more Iodide

I've now been on Liver Beef Glandular and thyroid tissue for 2 weeks (however only one thyroid tissue capsule a day and not 3) and no results so far. Still shedding like crazy all over the entire scalp. And also itchy, so yes discomfort zone, if you find a good solution to that please share. I am pretty skeptical that supplementing with thyroid tissue has any effect on the thyroid function, even if that ends out to be the root of the problem (which elmechanico's above results don't seem to point at). Hope some of you other guys trying other of the supps have had more success.

I have a theory and need your help. If everybody could please answer these few questions real quick:

1) Who here is still taking B5, even in tiny amounts from a B-Complex? If you are not taking any B5 in supplement form, how is your shedding?

2) I assume that everybody here took the B5 to combat their oily and acne prone skin.

Have you noticed any difference in your facial oil levels now compared to before B5 and while you were taking it?

3) Except for the shedding, how is your hair now compared to before you were taking B5? Dull and lifeless? Or oily? Has your hair darkened?

4) How was your scalp before B5, during B5 and how is it now? Oily, dry, flaky, dandruff?

5) Do you have dry skin/psoriasis anywhere on your body? Elbows,knees,arms,legs, etc.?

6) Do you shed a lot of hair that is shorter in comparison to your average hair length?

1) Not taking any B5 sups but it's in my post workout protein powder.

2) Face is much more oily than before taking B5.

3) Hair was very dull, straw-like until I stopped washing. It's better now but still not great.

4) Before B5, mild dandruff, mildly oily scalp. After B5, bad dandruff, super oily scalp.

5) Dry skin pretty much everwhere. Nothing a little lotion doesn't fix but I never had to use lotion before.

6) Yes. Mostly short hairs but long ones in there too.

Bout three weeks in on the colostrum now. Like I mentioned in previous post, shedding has gone down but I'm not convinced yet its the colostrum working. Gonna give it a few more weeks and see if things continue to improve before I give it credit.

As I have mentioned earlier, I've have been using the formula below to alleviate some of the most annoying symptoms of itchy, irritated scalp.

The listed amounts are by %weight, so you may want to use a small scale to prepare this concoction.

Jojoba Oil: 80.6%

Castor Oil: 11.0%

Lavender Essential Oil: 3.8%

Rosemary Essential Oil: 4.6%

Use a glass container. First, add castor and jojoba oils, mix them together and then add the essential oils.

The essential oils I'm using are manufactured by Now Foods and the carrier oils are sold by Swanson (100% Certified Organic).

I hope it helps.

I use a mixture of castor, olive and tea tree oil to treat my irritated scalp.

Btw, who here still has acne? And if you do, in which areas?

I tried those oils as well. You should try the combo I descibed, though. My scalp feels fantastic.

1) Not taking B5 in any form.

2) It's as oily as before taking Pantethine. In the 10 days I was on Pantethine my face was less oily.

3)Hair is now dull, lifeless and straw like compared to before Pantethine. Also it has become lighter.

4) Scalp before Pantethine was without problems. Problems started maybe 6 months or so after the hair loss started. Now its itchy and flaky.

5) No psoriasis.

6) I shed hair in all lengths. My hair is pretty long now, so its easy to see which length I pull out. I would say its mostly the longer ones.

I use a mixture of castor, olive and tea tree oil to treat my irritated scalp.

Btw, who here still has acne? And if you do, in which areas?

I still have acne. Moderate I would say. A little bit everywhere, but worst in the mouth / jaw area. If/when I loose all of my hair I might take up pantethine again as it at least helped on the acne, and there wouldn't be anything to loose.

Hello. I am from Russia. I do not quite understand in English, sorry (
I tried b5 1 month. The dosage was 5g .. I like you started to lose hair .. Now I do not drink c5! What do I do?
With difficulty reading this topic (through an interpreter), I realized that we are talking about deffitsite vitamins or NTDs.
But I did not understand, could if someone stop hair loss?

привет. я из России. я плохо понимаю по английски, извините(
Я употреблял б5 1 месяц. Дозировка была 5г.. Я как и вы начал терять волосы.. Сейчас я не употребляю в5! Что мне делать?
С трудом прочитав эту тему (с помощью переводчика) я понял что речь идёт о деффиците витаминов или ДНТ.
Но я так и не понял смог-ли кто-то остановить выпадение волос?

The oils are a bit expensive though and I'm not yet sure if oiling an already oily scalp is a good idea but thanks for the tip. Has it reduced/eliminated your shedding?

Has anybody tried a detox yet? A Master Cleanse, liver flush etc.? If somehow the B5 affected the liver, kidneys etc. then that could maybe help with that.

I'll try the Master Cleanse after I have completed finals. It's also supposed to help with oily skin.

Meanwhile I am still losing hair but mainly on my temples and along the side part. Does anybody else sometimes have sebum on their shed hair? Like when you lose a hair and the usually small bulb is covered by a bigger bulb of sebum which you can remove.

Maybe a overproduction of sebum is the cause of the hair loss. It's either that, a deficiency or MPB. I do however think that a deficiency would case Telogen Effluvium but in my case my hair loss was not delayed at all. I only took B5 for a week and immediately noticed hair loss. I stopped the supplements and am still losing hair one year later now.

probably i am going to share my own observations. majority hair falls comes for top and front side of the head... on the sides and on the back hair is stronger. hair falls completely with a root. falling out long and short hair. Here in russia we dont have any information? but after reading foreign forums i find out that hair continue to fall after cancellation of the madication (treatment) (even after several years)? thats why as i think that the disbalance of vitamine B5 does not has nothing to do with it. Out of all this observations we have only one conclusion- androgenic allopecia????in that case we need to search the resolution of the problem in proper functioning of adrenals?? and thyroids. Vitamine B5 has an influence at functioning of adrenals.

who managed to win?

Well it has now been exactly one year since I started B5 supplementation and what a bad idea it has turned out to be.

Before taking B5 I had really thick and beautiful hair and never noticed myself shedding a single hair no matter how often I blow dried or straightened my hair.

I could lather my hands with strong hair wax and run them through my hair and wouldn't have a single hair on my hands afterwards.

I washed my hair every day with shampoo and didn't even use conditioner but my hair still always had great shine and thickness.

I never had dandruff or itching scalp either. I was really blessed with good hair genetics.

Last october, when I was 17, I started taking B5 to cure my acne and oily skin. I had read up on possible side effects on the internet but all I found was reports of diarrhea and upset stomach. Pretty much every site praised B5 for clearing skin and they all said it was safe to take in high doses.

So, convinced I could finally cure my acne, I ordered B5 and started taking it right away. In the space of 1 week I gradually increased my dose until I reached 10g. After around 2 days on 10g I noticed really bad hair shedding when I ran my hands through my hair.

I immediately stopped taking B5(I probably took it for 9 days or so) but the hair loss continued.

In the coming months I noticed that my scalp was always itching really badly and that it was always irritated around the temples. I started taking all kind of supplements(which I still do). I also started regularly applying tea tree and castor oil to my scalp and using Nizoral once a week. Nothing has been able to stop the shedding though.

Well, now most of my scalp and hair feels really good, however my temples look horrible. I have receded around 1cm in a year and they are getting thinner every day. In the places where really thick,luscious hair used to be, now there's only wimpy and thin hair left.

My temples are also constantly inflamed and red and no matter what topicals I use, the irritation never goes away.

For a long time I was convinced I had Telogen Effluvium or some deficiency but I am pretty much sure now that B5 started MPB.

What other condition could cause such rapid hair loss on the temples? I don't know. I also have no other way to explain why only my temples are constantly inflamed/red and flaking.

The thing is there is no MPB history in my family. My father is a NW2 at most at 54 and his temples look thicker than mine!

I have no idea how but somehow B5 must've triggered MPB. It's also the only condition that explains why so many people have never managed to reverse their hair loss despite taking so many supplements. I and a lot of other people have had all kinds of blood tests done but they all came back normal.

If this Colostrum/Potassium Iodide thing doesn't work for you guys, I think I have no choice but to go a dermatologist and ask for Finasteride and Minox.

I don't want to be bald by the time I am 21

Do this:

1. Nizoral Shampoo every other day, leave in hair 10 minutes.

2. Propecia .05 everyday. Obtain Propecia from doctor and dissolve 1 pill in 20mL of 75% proof alcohol (ex: bacardi 151). Take 1ml via dropper everyday. You will see results in 2-3months.

Or take Propecia, cut into 4 pieces and take Monday Wednesday Friday. This will stop hair loss

Yes, Propecia is the only thing that has stopped my itching. I strongly suggest not using a full 1mg dose to avoid side effects IMO I would use Nizoral EOD, once a week is not enough. When I hit the 3 month for propecia I will post pictures for everyone.

Maybe more people should try RU? Worked for me.
