Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

1,416 posts in this topic

I'm not prepared to try propecia, when I tried saw palmetto that fucked me up enough and it's supposedly weaker.

I've also been losing hair for around 5 years, didn't even notice it for a while. I used to have very thick hair so it isn't too bad, girls think I'm handsome still but imagine if I had a full head of hair.

I'll give it a few years and hopefully there is stem cell therapy available by then, if not I will consider a hair transplant if it's got a lot worse.

I'll let you know how RU is. It's a topical AA, shouldn't have any systemic effects. Hopefully stem cells, lipids, or growth factors come soon. Best is if whoever reads this thread doesn't take B5 to begin with!

@Ruman

Read through the pages. Hair does NOT grow back by itself.

Take propecia if you want hair. Add RU after 6 months

if Hair does NOT grow back by itself , this means mpb! Why, then, finasteride does not help everyone? somebody checked adrenals?

Hello.

I have just logged into this site after a while - and it is quite upsetting to hear that nobody has had any success with the supplements.

I am still on my regime and my hair is still presently in satisfactory condition (thank god).

I may actually experiment myself in relation to ceasing all supplemental usage and then slowly introducing one at a time, maybe monthly, to ascertain specifically which one of the supplements is having an effect in mediating my B5 related hair loss dilemma.

My gut is definitely telling me it is something in relation to the adrenal/thyroid system in my body - and B5 usage had definitely impacted this in some (positive and negative) way.

I went through a 2 week period recently whereby I had become slightly Ill with the flu. I ordered a different brand of colostrum and over the duration of around 3 days, I had taken copious amounts in hope that it would bolster my immune system, as I tend to dislike taking medications that the doctors usually prescribe.

It worked for me - i felt an improvement in my flu like symptoms on the second day, but I continued with take the colostrum in high amounts over the duration of around 2 weeks until the supplement had finished, and in all honestly, during this time, my hair was in superb condition. I just cannot put my finger on it if it actually does have something to do with colostrum or if it is something to do with the additions of the other supplements I am taken concurrently, as my evidence is still only anecdotal.

I really do need to conduct an experiment myself - as the cost of taking all of these does become quite a challenge on a monthly basis. I need to pinpoint the exact supplement and continue with only its usage.

But I do generally feel really healthy (strength and energy related) since i started this regiment. My immune system and symptoms of fatigue have definitely improved and I tend to have more of a spring in my step - but again, i need to run this experiment for myself.

I will from tomorrow, only continue with the colostrum, and if all is well for around 2 weeks, i will continue and then reassess any introductions I may need to make at the end of the two week period.

I'm quite nervous thinking about it. I don't want to lose any hair during this process as this has been working quite well for me. But it is a financial pain.

freakingthefrackout Im sorry to hear youre losing hair. I have read on diffrent forums about this and it seems to me that girls bounce back. You prob got Telogen Effluvium. Good luck!

Happy to see you back hemetic. Trying one at the time sounds resonable, not only for finacial reasons but for your health. I pray to jebus that colostrum is the cure. Keep us posted mate. And good luck to you too!

About 4 weeks in on the colostrum/high protein thing and my shedding is definitely lessened. When I run my hand through my hair I get 1-2 hairs whereas before I would get around 6 hairs at a time. I worry that others might not see the same success though because I never got the receding hairline. I had pretty severe shedding on the crown and temples though. Still have oily and slightly itchy scalp but nothing too bad.

I have my doubts about this being MPB because I'm always shedding but the net loss doesn't seem to be increasing. In MPB you're always at a downward slope but I seem to be pretty stagnant as far as hair loss/gain. You can certainly tell my hair is thinned out but it's not getting worse. I tend to subscribe to the lipid thing, and the locality of the hair loss is somehow dependent on the follicles most susceptible to lipid disruption. I had a patch of hair on my upper thigh that went completely bald before I had any head hair shedding (should have payed closer attn. to that) which has now grown back almost entirely over the course of a year.

Gonna continue this for another couple weeks then add the iodine and see where that takes me. As always good luck y'all.

@hermetic @nukeng

Can you please list the amount of colostrum/supplements you are taking per day and how long you have been on this regime. Thanks

‚ÄčNukeng, what do you mean by this (bolded part)?

I take one 500 mg capsule twice daily of Jarrows Colostrum and consume at least 70 grams of protein daily. Those are the only supps I am taking.

What I mean is I suspect that the reason people are seeing thinning hair (mostly) in the typical MPB areas is not because it's MPB but because the follicles that are most susceptible to altered lipid metabolism happen to also be the ones that are affected by MPB. That's just my suspicion based upon what people have noted and my own personal observation.

Yes, I think altered lipid metabolism actually causes MPB. How to reverse it ,that's the question. I'll be watching those taking Colostrum, hope it works out.

3-4 weeks ago I started taking colostrum, adrenal cortex and raw thyroid gland.

Its so fking hard to know if its better or not but overall these last two weeks I shed less. I measure it on how much I shed on my pillow each morning when I wake up. Its a big improvement, from maybe 15-20 before to 3-10 now.

But I dont know guys, I wont say "this" and "that" is the cure or working until im completely 100% sure.

Also, for seb.dermatitis, Itchy scalp, greasy sebum etcetc that many seems to have. Buy Himalayan Pink salt, make sure its real and not fake. I bought it from Iherb.

I put half teaspoon salt in half litre warm water and let it dissolve and then pour it all over my scalp and face and let it dry for maybe 15-30 minutes before I take a shower. It works wonder, also good for acne.

I believe Blue has had hair loss for over 5 years. I posted links of people having hair loss for over 10 years with only propecia and dut helping them. Yes, we are all men here.

Doctors do not know! I will be a nurse soon, medical doesn't know!

Cure ourselves is best, for myself I say MPB.

Take it for 6 months and you will see if it helps YOU. Everyone doesn't matter, only your hair matters.

My comment to Ruman made me realize WE ARE ALL MEN HERE. This shows we have MPB. If there was some other cause, then many girls should also be suffering hair loss and commenting here. Where are they?

Don't waste anymore time theorizing, take action to save your hair now.

No real change here, some days my hair and scalp feel great, on others my scalp is still irritated and Im shedding a lot. However, it seems the hair loss and scalp irritation are worse on one side.

I'm still trying to figure out if my scalp is oily or dry and how the topicals affect my condition. I have also started taking Minocycline to cure my acne and maybe clear my scalp of bacteria/fungi.

I have definitely gotten some regrowth, which is good news. Especially on my right temple and at the centre of my hairline there are new hairs and it's looking a lot thicker.

However, my left temple is constantly irritated and shedding quite badly too.

As for my "treatment" right now, I take a lot of supps and eat a balanced diet high in protein and with lots of vitamins. I don't eat or drink processed crap, don't drink coffee or alcohol and also exercise daily. I also apply some topicals to my scalp a few times per week. Im not sure if all this helps.

Regarding adrenal fatigue, I have had blood tests done and my adrenals were healthy. I do however experience the typical symptoms. Im curious, how exactly do you treat/cure adrenal fatigue?

I have read a few other threads with girls suffering from the thinning hair due to b5. This girls mum put up a warning on the thread telling everyone to stop taking b5 as her daughters hair was falling out.

Just had another look online and there's loads of girls losing hair from b5. A girl started a thread on this site called vitamin b5 hairloss. So in my opinion that's ruled out Mpb.
