It’s been a while since I posted anything on this forum. Frankly, I’d been waiting to make sure that my improvements weren’t just a fluke and would actually last. So, I’m happy to report, my hair loss and scalp inflammation have completely subsided (and haven’t come back after about a month). The bad news is I can’t be sure that the symptoms will not return or how generalizable the approach I used is.
The following is what I used to alleviate the symptoms of itchy scalp and diffuse hair loss (listed in what I believe is the order of their contribution to the improvement):
1. Psoriatrax tar shampoo. Used every day for the first two weeks, then every other day (alternating with Jason Dandruff Relief shampoo and, occasionally, Nizoral),
2. Colostrum Plus (2 scoops twice a day),
3. Scalp serum with Lavender and Rosemary oil (been using it for a while). Apply about twice a week.
4. Holy basil extract, ashwagandha, valerian root (adaptogens) taken before bed.
It seems that the hair loss and scalp inflammation are manifestations of an immune response to vitamin B5 overdose. In any case, I hope this helps you guys.
Great news and congrats! So you're taking almost 12 grams of Colostrum Plus a day?
This is your scalp serum:
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).
