I am experiencing greater than usual amounts of falling hair. I've tried adding hair vitamins, good protein in diet, adequate water, using safe shampoos, but the only thing that lessens the amount of falling hair, that ends up in my hands, on my clothes and in the drain, is eating several eggs per day-- they are free range, organic, omega -3 brown eggs. If I miss a day of eating at least 3 eggs my hair starts to fall out again.
Eggs are such a complex food its very hard to isolate what mineral or combination or minerals are helping my hair. I really cant eat 3 eggs every day-- not only because that is a lot of cholesterol, but I don't want to develop an allergy to them from eating them every day.
Additionally my nails and cuticles arent in that great of shape, but eggs sure helped at least the cuticles in short order.
Part of the reason I am so concerned about it, is that if I have a deficiency of some type I'd like to find out before it affects something more serious than my hair.
Any help as to why the eggs are helping would be appreciated.

I am a female, 53 yrs old. Three months ago my hair started falling out. My scalp was burning and I had red patches and itching. I had numerous blood tests done, but all the blood tests came out normal. I believe the hair loss and scalp problems were caused by an allergic reaction to Prozac, so I went off the Prozac immedietly (It takes 4 to 6 weeks for Prozac to leave the system). But I needed something that would stop the hair loss and scalp pain fast.
I tried switching shampoos and using other OTC products, but nothing would help. I lost half my hair. Then I read an article about Emu Oil for hair loss. I started using it on my scalp and got immediate results. The burning and itching stopped within 2 days and my hair stopped falling out. After using it for only 1 week, I noticed new hair coming in. I would highly recommend Emu Oil to anyone with scalp problems.

Has anyone tried gelatin for the hair? If so, does the gelatin repair damaged hair or stimulate hair growth? A few sites say that it prevents breakage and adds body, but that evidence of hair growth is inconclusive. Any thoughts on this? Thanks.
Can someone look at this link and tell me if this is the tin TED meant in his posts for hair loss?
I got this now, and it says its dangerous, irritant to the skin etc. So I got scared. Please, let me know?
Ted, I have developed hair thinning after drinking senna tea and having acupuncture done in my scalp. The thinning area is directly in the area on my scalp where the needles were inserted.
Also What supplements resemble the actions of ASTRESSIN-B?
Read this article please.
According to reports, researchers came across the discovery when testing a chemical compound on genetically-altered mice. The mice's bodies had been programmed to overproduce a stress hormone, called corticotrophin-releasing factor (CRF), which, in addition to other things, caused them to lose their fur as they aged.
As part of the study, the balding mice were given five daily injections of a recently-developed anti-stress hormone, astressin-B, and then returned to their habitat. Three months passed, and when scientists returned to collect the rodents for follow-up studies they unexpectedly discovered the once-hairless subjects had re-grown their fur. Reports indicate the injections were 100 percent effective in re-growing hair.
"Our findings show that a short-duration treatment with this compound causes an astounding long-term hair regrowth in chronically stressed mutant mice, " said Dr Million Mulugeta of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
"This molecule also keeps the hair colour (and) prevents the hair from turning grey, " he told the AFP news agency.
"This could open new avenues to treat hair loss in humans, " Dr Mulugeta added.
Here's how MedPageToday characterizes the research:
The mutant mice bred to overproduce the stress hormone corticotrophin-releasing factor become bald on their backs as they age. But after a week of daily injections with a compound to block CRF called astressin-B developed by the group to treat gastrointestinal disease, the mice unexpectedly regrew their missing hair and were indistinguishable from controls.
The effect remained for up to four months, which the researchers pointed out in a press release is a long time in a mouse's less than two-year life span. It far exceeded the mild regrowth produced by minoxidil (Rogain) in the same mouse model, the group reported in PLoS One.
Since CRF is also expressed in human skin, the researchers expressed optimism that a similar approach could be a "breakthrough therapy for alopecia."
I keep reading peroxide will help with thining hair but no one tells how to use it. Can you answer or tell where and how to find it on the web. thank you.
Hi Ted, I've had diffuse hairloss for the last 6 months or so, on my head, eyebrows, eyelashes, I think also pubic hair, and maybe even arm and leg hai r(I may be getting paranoid), I'm currently using chromium, selenium forte, drinking 1/4 teaspoon of borax in pure water, washing my hair and body in borax, I have been doing this for 3 days now, hair loss hasn't stopped but I can say the borax has made my hair so full and healthy looking I can't believe it.. I used to have little dandruff plugs on the ends of my lost hairs just above the roots, but I'm fixing that with clove oil in water aswell as vitamin A and E every second day.. I think the cause of my hairloss was being exposed to mold in my old house, I have now moved house... My question is, can mold exposure cause hairfall on all hair on the body??? Or is pubic/body hair loss really uncommon?
I still have a normal looking head of hair but I can tell it's not as thick as it was
Just adding that I still smoke cannabis every second day or so, could this affect my treatments?
After not too much research on the Coppola Keratin treatment, I had it done last year (7/10). I had super thick coarse curly, hard-to-manage hair. It was supposed to loosen my curls and eliminate frizz. My results were ok. My curls ended up being almost gone and even now (9/10), the texture is not back to normal. In fact I have less curl and more frizz. I was managing that, but now realize that my hair is thinning on top, mostly at the hairline and temples. It must have been happening slowly throughout the year. I never noticed extra hair loss, but I think that is because I lose so much usually. I actually think my hair didn't fall out so much as it just stopped creating new. I've been putting a 1/2 acv, 1/2 water mixture on it and am thinking that helps but it seems to iritate my scalp. I notice my scalp is somewhat pink.
Any help would be much appreciated!

My nerves (worries, anxious etc. ) are really bad, which leaves me scratching my scalp all day. Over the last two months my hair started falling out (experiencing hair loss) due to my scratching it all day (due to nrevousness). Will the ACV hydrogen peroxide help with my hair loss?
Hi all Has anyone tried the potion of Honey, Cinnamon and Olive oil. You heat the olive oil and mix in the Honey and Cinnamon and leave on hair for 15 minutes then wash off. I have seen it all over the web but I have not seen any results
I am surprised this is not mentioned or known about much.
To cure hair loss and have hair regrowth, the Bedouin here use grass oil (like normal grass in your garden turned into oil... it is a very thick oil.. just a bit thicker than olive oil sometimes as thick, if you get one that is watery know you have been cheated and its mixed with water or other things)
It is so effective I am 26 years old and I could never grow a full goatee ( always wanted one :P ) so I used it for about a week on the empty area and hair grew where none was!
To use it on the head apply daily or once every other day with good enough amount to spread over your scalp and massage it in leave it in from 4 to 6 hours for about a month should be enough to notice real difference... I am not kidding this thing is WORTH the trouble, we don't have many scientists in this country if we did and they studied this i am SURE they would have extracted what ever is in there that makes it work so damn well and cured baldness already.
Warning though this stuff is green and it drips so make sure you don't stain your cloths :) but i promise you this is one mess you wont regret :D
EC: Hi Zk85. Is there another name for this grass oil? We see that citronella, lemongrass, and palmarosaessential oils areeach made from grass. However, lemongrass oil isthe one we seelisted asbeing manufacturedin Saudi Arabia.

I don't have any hair loss , but I read a lot and in the book by John Lee, What your doctor may not tell you about menopause, he writes that some people get estrogen dominant from our food, water, plastics and fertilizers, anyway, he says many people who get their homones back into balance can reverse their hair loss.
There is hairloss with thyroid imbalance and you can have an imbalance even if your tests come back normal , read the book by Mary Shomon, the thyroid diet revolution. It's not a Diet Book, but reviews of what helps to heal the thyroid .
Frequently a progesterone deficiency/imbalance due to estrogen dominance in men and women. Hope this helps someone.... Sometimes you just have to try a little dab and see if it helps
For the last year I have been experiencing hair loss and have tried every remedy on EC with no help. Hopefully I think I have finally found the answer to my problem thanks to EC and those who post here. One day someone posted info on Wilson's Syndrome and I followed up on researching it.
The short of Wilson's Syndrome is you can have all the symptoms of low thyroid but your blood work is fine. The key is low oral temperature below 98.6 on a regular basis which I had. I talked to my doctor and she said she treated this and even had a blood test to check for Wilson's syndrome. With Wilson's syndrome your body is unable to use the T3 your thyroid produces so the treatment is T3.
I have just started to take the T3 twice a day. Internet info says 12 hours apart. Also I was extremely fatigue more so than usual as I have been working on getting rid of CFS and Fibromyalgia. Actually it felt as if I had fallen into a big black hole and couldn't get out. Thanks again EC because I had not heard of Wilson's Syndrome and my doctor didn't look for it with my history of CFS and Fib.
I HAVE TAKEN ALOE VERA JUICE FOR NEARLY 2 YEARS...EVERY MORNING AND NIGHT.. IT HAS TOTALLY CLEARED UP MY TERRIBLY PERSISTENT ADULT ACNE.MY SKIN IS VERY RARELY BLEMISHED NOW AND IS PLUMP AND YOUTHFUL.
HOWEVER RECENTLY I HAVE HAD QUITE EXTREME HAIR LOSS FROM ALL OVER MY HEAD. MY MOTHER THINKS IT COULD BE FROM THE CITRIC ACID USED AS A PRESERVATIVE IN THE ALOE VERA JUICE.
HAS ANYONE COME ACROSS THIS, OR HAS ANY THOUGHTS?:)
