No matter how often I shower, I am still losing handfuls of hair

No matter how much I take care of myself, no matter how often I shower, I am still losing handfuls of hair, so I'm done trying. I bet within the year I'm going to need a weave/wig. *sigh*. I use argan oil shampoo. Tests always come back negative for problems with free t3 and t4. I have pcos, im taking iron and spironolactone. Idk what to do.

Do you ahem high blood pressure? Have you tried an elimination diet? Im a Natural Health Consultant if I knew more about what you eat daily I may be able to give you some meaningful recommendations.

I do not have high blood pressure

Why the spironolactone?

Rita Bouchard 3 years

The side effect is to lower testosterone

Tiffini Gillis 3 years

Is there not another drug to use for that? Spironolactone is a diuretic with a black box warning.. I would try to drop it as soon as possible..

Ashleigh Patton 3 years

The ironic thing is a potential side effect to spironolactone is increased hair growth.. Maybe it has increased your hair loss as well?

I have heard that it's common to lose hair from pcos.

It can also cause abnormal hair growth.

Look into black cohosh. There are side effects, but it might help. I have taken it and I liked it.

Amanda Powers 3 years

What are the side effects?

Tiffini Gillis 3 years

I didn't have any. But look into it if you are interested.

Some vitamin supplements for healthier hair and hair loss include: B-Complex Vitamins: Vitamin B7, also called Biotin, can strengthen your hair follicles. Zinc and iron: These minerals protect hair from shedding, getting dry and brittle. VitaminA: Vitamin A helps produce scalp oil, known as sebum

One of the many symptoms of PCOS is hair loss. I now you can do things to help, it's not an issue for me so I'm not sure what they are. I'll try to share a link for a great FB group for PCOS.

PCOS diva is one, and there's a PCOS 30 day challenge page to that is good.

I have pcos, change your diet. I have reversed all my symptoms except for a little chin hair (not much)
Get off of birth control pills
Get rid of all gluten/dairy
Eat paleo
Make veggies/fruit be the main source of carbs
Go easy on the fruit
Drink lots of water/herbal teas
Walk 30 min per day
See a fertility acupuncturist
All of these will help reduce testosterone etc, for sure ditch the BCpill and have a fertility acupuncturist help regulate your cycles
hugs! I know it's hard

Rachel Landis

pcos...? Avoid sugar and carbo, drink diluted ACV before meal, a cup of spearmint tea 2 times a day, iodine, avoid estrogen food such as soya.. It really works for me... Just google it for every function...

Stop showering so much first of all, you are getting chlorine, cloramines, and flouride, not good. lisa , is right Iodine, exercise (weight bearing), sunlight and meditation. It is adrenal fatigue and numbers are not always off.

As with most health problems, I think the only real solution is to improve your overall health dramatically. Eat a lot more fresh vegetables. Even lot more vegetables that are cooked even. Eat more fruits. Eat no processed foods. If you eat meat, eat a small amount. Things like that. Drink a lot more water. Get better sleep, and drink minimal caffeine.

I have a friend who sells Monat. I don't sell it, I'm just a customer, but you should see the results people get from it. AHmazing!

This photo is of a 93 yr old woman. The before and after photos of people's hair is ridiculous. It's worth trying. It's safe, yet concentrated, and will last you a long time. A little goes a long way.

Have you had your progesterone levels checked? You may need Vitex, Dim detox and high dose bioidentical progesterone cream along with detoxified iodine. These things helped me. Feel free to message me for more info.

everythings normal

Tiffini Gillis 3 years

Tiffini Gillis did a hormone specialist test your levels like a naturopathic doctor? I might get a second opinion personally. But what are your sleep habits and diet like? How is your insulin level and body weight (BMI)? High insulin and excess unhealthy body fat can also cause hair loss. If you aren't already, I would set a goal to be asleep no later than 10pm every night, including weekends, and getting at least 8+ hrs of sleep per night. The hours before midnight are much more important than the hours after midnight. So it's better to go to bed early than to sleep in to get those 8+ hours. Also, eliminate all sugar and processed carbs from your diet and dairy as well which can cause inflammation. Eat lots of veggies (6-8 cups per day), especially raw and green, to give your body nutrients it may be lacking. Eat grass fed and wild caught protein from beef, poultry, fish, eggs or plant based proteins if you are vegetarian. Take a high quality supplement to give you the rest of the nutrients your body needs each day that food just can't give you. If you need suggestions for this, feel free to message me. These things will help immensely with any underlying adrenal and or insulin issues you may be having that those tests aren't showing.

Natural vegetable Juices are a simple easy effective way of cleansing the body. Buy a juicer, start with a 1/4 cabbage, a carrot, a stick or 2 of celery, a half of cucumber and a bunch of parsley. This will cleanse the blood, cleanse the liver, and get the intestines working. İt WILL balance your PH within a week. 3 glasses a day for a month and you will love the results, it is cheap too!. and no need for any supplements!. http://amzn.to/2xiKxCV

When you have a thyroid problem (as I do) "normal" range doesn't cut it. You need to be optimal. So most doctors will tell you 'you're fine' even when you're saying I feel awful. Hair loss is a sign of thyroid problems. I'd fond a naturopath or functional Med doc in your area. I follow this page & their recommendations. And once I did (I had and doctor introduce me to it) I felt a million times better. There's a section for finding doctors too.
