I started taking red date and honey as I read it is good for blood circulation, I added 3 -5 drops of apple cider vinegar to it ( balance of the yin and yang in the body and for calming too.. according to traditional chinese medicine) lo and behold, after 3 months of it.. I noticed that a balding part of my scalp rejuvenated and hair started to grow !! after 6 months I started to let my hair grow without cutting it, I now sport hair beyond shoulder length, something which I couldn't do since my hair was very fine and scanty !! ( I also take apple cider vinegar half a teaspoon daily with honey) My sister and brother also tried it, we noticed that facial skin became more youthful !! due to the blood circulation?
Any brand of coconut oil would work. As long as "coconut oil "is written on the label, you can still confidently apple in on your hair . Anyway, making your hair longer/prevent hair loss is one sole issue while making it look shinier is another issue. I am just a 18 years old girl. My hair used to be thick last time and I've never bothered it, even when others told me that I have thick hair . Worries monopoly myself when I started to realise when my hair is getting thinner and thinner than year after year . Every morning, when I wake up, about more than 15 strands of hair would end up between my finger and thus, finally fall of. Then, I started apply coconut oil on my hair on my scalp(to reduce the number of hair fall and promote faster hair growth/regrowth) and also apply them between my hair from the scalp to the tip of my hair to make it look shinier and repairs all those split ends. AND YAY! I did realise some changes in a week time. And I'm so amazed with much power coconut oil can do.
I have had some success with using Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) topically for hair fall. I was diagnosed with diffused Alopecia areata long ago when my hair loss started at around age 19. My hair loss has slowly progressed for nearly a decade. I usually have increased hair fall in the summer and my scalp is ALWAYS tender. So much so that adding a barette or pulling into a ponytail causes my scalp to hurt so bad it causes headaches. I've tried some EC recommended remedies during this approx 2 month bout of intense shedding.
ACV, BSM, Idoral have not helped. The one thing that has reduced my shedding is applying coconut oil topically. I saturated my scalp, let sit for a couple hours and then attempeted to wash it out. This stuff is not going to wash away easily as my daily rinsing with white vinegar(make hair gorgeous! ) has yet to displace the oil completely. The next day my shedding was GREATLY reduced and is still reduced 3 days later. The downside for me is that I DONT care for my hair texture or the appearance of my hair(greasy) after the VCO application. My scalp sensitivity is also up (sebum cause by the oil?). BUT for those without my AA issues, I recommend highly trying VCO externally for hair shedding.
Regarding organic virgin cold pressed coconut oil, I internally take 3 tsp daily, as well as oil pull with it, and for skin, it is a great makeup remover as well as facial cleanser and moisturizer. For hair, once a month; I saturate my hair (dry hair) with the oil, then wrap in saran wrap and cover with a warm towel for no less than 2hrs.; then wash normally. It is IMO, one of the better oils to use externally, since it absorbs so quickly, and is less damaging than all those nasty chemicals.

I have used coconut oil for many years. I learned this from my aunt who was noticing her hair was falling out more than usual so she starting using it on her scalp and hair and it not only stopped her hair loss, but actually made her hair grow strong, abundant and shiny so I started using it myself. Needless to say I have really thick strong, to much hair actually.

Coconut Oil for Hypothyroid patients: I heard that virgin coconut oil was a good supplement for people suffering with hypothyroidism. I went to a natural food market and bought a jar of it. That was 2 months ago and I have gone back to buy more several times. I am taking 3 tablespoons in the morning. It has not helped with my weight although I know a few people who used it and lost weight immediately. It has stopped my hair loss (it use to fall out by the handful) and in fact not only is my hair thicker but my eyebrows are growing back. I no longer have cold hands and feet either. It doesn't cure thyroid problems but it certainly is a great supplement to help with the effects of the disease.

I started using VCO 3 weeks ago for hair loss. Well in that time I have seen a dramatic difference in my hair plus my hot flashes are decreasing. Now there are only 2 a week. My energy level has increased, my insomnia is gone and my mood is alot better, also my moisture has increased in my whole body. I can't wait to see what happens in 6 months. I take 3 tbsp. a day.
Coenzymated B vitamins (the kind you dissolve under your tongue) works amazingly well for hair loss. I noticed my hair feeling thicker, smoother and fuller within the first 10 week! I think the other kinds of B vitamins are not absorbed very well.
I've had hair loss for years; since I'm a high maintenance girl)), I've tried everything under the sun, including all the popular remedies listed on this website. What helped me is washing my hair under cold water. It helped after the first time. Also, If you are under stress I recommend meditation, relaxation techniques and spirituality since stress could be a reason of stress loss! Good luck to everyone! Love this website. Good job Ted!
Hair Loss Degreaser: It is known that DHT is the major culprit of male pattern baldness. DHT is in present in oil on the scalp. I have heard that colloidal degreasers (the kind used to clean grills),which are environmentally safe and non-toxic, can grow hair. Has anyone else heard of this?
I have been using Dawn dish washing soap to wash my bald area (mail Pattern) has helped some My step-dad has been putting on rubbing alcohol and he has grown hair. I just started using ACV for acid reflux and it has been working and am going to it try on my head.
For the last 5 years when I see clients coming in with good hair I ask what they eat... So 90% consistent with good head of hair is..... A daily consumption of apples, oatmeal, milk, peanuts, dark leafy greens. This is really interesting too.... all of them had cooler body temperature...
Question: I may have hyperthyroidism and noticed when I take zinc my scalp feels better. Any thoughts?
This is a remedy from Edgar Cayce who was a medical intuit and some say a prophet. He could put himself into a trance and offer advice to people on healings. I read it today and thought I would post it here. This is the question asked of him:
(R) How may I promote the growth of new hair on my head?
(B) Eat more shell fish and rub same with a few coffee grounds occasionally.
Perhaps any males out there (or females) could try this and report back?
I am female, 58 years old, and I always had thin, fine hair that became thinner as I got older until you could easily see my scalp throught the hair in the front and the crown of my head. About 3 years ago, I started using Pennsylvania crude oil per Edgar Cayce's protocol and I am still amazed as my hair just gets thicker every month; new growth is constant. I have never had hair like this, even as a child. I was always self-conscious about my hair (vanity?)and used any means possible to make it look thicker; perms, coloring, teasing. I feel great about the way my hair looks for the first time ever (I can remember sending nightly prayers as a child for pretty hair). I just want to tell everyone I see with thinning hair about it! I don't very often, though, unless asked. I have told several hairdressers so that they could share it with their customers; suprisingly, only one of them showed any interest. There are about 6 recommended steps to the protocol, including an herbal tonic and massaging with petroleum jelly. I started with just the petroleum jelly for financial reasons, and I saw rapid improvement in just a few weeks. Then I added the crude oil and the herbal tonic and I have been using those three since then. I use the oil followed by the petroleum jelly once a week and the tonic once a day. The instructions on his site are clear and you can also see the products if you look on his website for companies who make and sell products made with Edgar Cayce formulas. I had to write because I have used many remedies from this website and I am very grateful that you are here, all of you!! Namaste.

Dear friends, please take the time to investigate via the internet or the library, all of the Edgar cayce material regarding hair loss. There have been countless cures using his remedies, not just for hair loss, but for a multitude of ailments. I personally healed a pulled muscle in my left shoulder by literally doing two applications of one of his remedies. You are all in my prayers.
