Post HAIR SHEDDING ON B-5?

My hair has begun to shed rapidly since taking B-5. Does anyone know anything about this?

Are you taking a multi vitamin daily or at least a b complex daily along with your b5?

Yes, someone else also posted about this a few months ago. They were also on B5 and experienced major hair loss. Try doing a board search with "hair" and "B5".

Hair growth, maybe, but certainly not hair loss! The biotin in my formula has also made my nails grow exceptionally long.

Hey there,
I've experienced *slight* hair loss while I've been on B5 (two weeks/5g a day) but I don't know if this is due to the B5...

I've been dying my hair a lot recently so it could be (probably is) that. I just sometimes see 5 or 6 hairs on the towel after I've had a shower.
However, I think I might be experiencing nail growth - they are quite long... so who knows!

C ya!

Dave
