: Hi. I'm an 18 year old male who never had problems with my hair before this, but
: about two weeks ago my hair started shedding. It happens mostly when it is wet, but
: also when it's dry and I run my fingers through my hair. Also, about two months ago,
: I started taking supplements for my mild acne problem which includes a B complex
: vitamin, 1000mg of Evening Primrose Oil, 500mg of vitamin C, and 50mg of Zinc
: citrate daily. Could the supplements have something to do with the sudden hair
: loss? I read that all 4 vitamins are GOOD for hair loss, and if so, why am I LOSING
: hair----I dunno. I'm confused! Any help would be greatly appreciated! thanx.

On average, a person will lose 300 hairs a day due to the natural 'replacement'. Anytime there is a change in ones health, it will first effect the hair and nails. Whenever one begins taking medications, whether prescribed or over-the-counter, the body has to decide what to do with it and where it needs to go; it can take up to 30 days before any benefit becomes evident. Give it a little time. Also, after washing your hair, do NOT vigorousy dry it with a towel. Use your blow dryer on a lower heat and air setting, and do not use a lot of hairstyling aids.
