In Topic: Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

Hey everyone,
 
So I got the scalp analysis done, the consultant used a microscope camera. From what he told me the areas where my hair has receded were terminally closed (no new hair will grow). It was also noted that I had scalp miniaturization around my crown, front and nowhere else on my scalp and that these areas were also oily. I have oily skin at this time due to high T levels so that made sense.
 
He was very confused when I told him all my hairs that I've lost have had a little white bulb on the end, he said that this should only be coming out with the hair if you physically pull the hair out of your scalp. He suggested that the large sebum buildup (the white bulb) on the scalp could be contributing to the hair loss from the B5 and that B5 may have somehow accelerated hair loss.
 
Otherwise, he obviously had no idea how B5 could be doing this and said that this looks like typical male pattern baldness to him.

Btw, I have no history of hair loss in my family, my dad and grandfather still have full heads of hair, my moms side, no hair loss either.

 

Okay, that is not good news. What did he recommend to do now?

What other side effects are people experiencing?

I'm tired all the time

 

This is a prominent side effect for me too, its more than likely adrenal related. I've noted that I am fully awake later at night (10 PM and later) when the adrenal's second wind kicks in, but tired all morning / afternoon. Caffeine seems to wake me up somewhat though

 

I am exactly the same, luckily I'm self employed so I can take advantage of it and have a good working session in the early hours.

 

I also often have brain fog, difficulty focusing and poor memory.

I have exactly the same too.

Blue09 as you progress? how much hair you have left? :)


Very little. Around 30-40% receding is the worst.

Yeah, Im about the same. Doing a topical solution through a hair restoration clinic, but I don't have too high hopes on that. Will be 4 months before potential results a visible, but will let you guys know if there are any results.

Hi all,

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.

 

Congrats! which brands did you use for 2,3 and 4?

@Elemechanico

 

Not heard of those. Are you trying them at the moment? How's your hair these days?

 

 

They are two amino acids responsible for hair growth/production.

 

My hair looks really good except for my hairline, that's the only place I seem to be thinning which leads me to believe it's MPB.

It could also be a maturing hairline because it started when I was 17 and a half but it would be a weird coincidence if the maturing hairline started exactly at the same time as I took B5. It's now been a bit more than a year since taking B5 and my hair looks and feels really good except for the hairline. I'm not really shedding anymore but my hairline is bothering me, that's why I'm considering starting Finasteride once I turn 19 in April.

 

I was able to stop the scalp problems and the shedding and I got some slight regrowth as well but my hairline is still worse than a year ago. 

 

Do you have any idea if the shedding has stopped any supplements/treatments (and in that case, which) or if it just stopped by itself?

 

Nothing new from here really, had the "scalp test", which was more just a quick comb-through of my hair. She didn't understand the whole situation of course, and found it weird that I am shedding on the entire scalp. I will be starting a treatment with daily topical application there. It is probably completely without effect, but it wasn't as expensive as i thought, and I'm just pretty desperate. 

 

I was also at the dermatologist, but on an unrelated issue, and she didn't really have anything to say on the nail- and hairloss.
