: : : : : I'M A FEMALE IN MY EARLY THIRTIES AND I HAVE AN EXTREME AMOUNT OF PREMATURE GRAY HAIR AND HAIR LOSS. I TAKE VITAMINS BUT I DON'T KNOW IF I TAKE THE RIGHT ONES OR MAYBE THEY AREN'T BEING ABSORBED THE WAY THEY SHOULD BE. ANY ADVICE WOULD REALLY HELP. ALSO HAS ANYONE TRIED HO SHU WU (I THINK THATS WHAT IT IS CALLED)? IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WHO HAS RESTORED THEIR HAIR COLOR THRU A NATURAL WAY? AL REPLIES WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKYOU

: : : :
: : : : Get your Thyroid checked out! These are sypmtoms of Hypothyroidism

: : : THANKS BAMBI, I HAD IT CHECKED OUT A WHILE AGO AND THEY SAID THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG BUT SOMETHING IS GOING ON. I WILL HAVE IT CHECKED AGAIN. HAVE A GOOD ONE.

: : I too am in my early thirties and in the past 3 months have lost about 50% of my hair. My thyroid test showed normal. Some say it is just stress as I have 4 very young kids at home. Does your head feel itchy and are you losing your hair in patches or evenly all over?

:
: MY HAIR IS KINDA FALLING OUT ALL OVER THE PLACE. SOMETIMES I MIGHT GET 5 STRANDS AT A TIME. MY HEAD DOES NOT ITCH. MY HAIR IS REALLY DRY AND BRITTLE AND GRAY. I TOO HAVE A LOT OF STRESS IN MY LIFE BUT I HAVE NO CHILDREN. ANYTHING YOU FIND OUT LET ME KNOW PLEASE. MY HAIR WAS THE ONE THING I LIKED MOST ABOUT MY PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. NOW I HATE LOOKING AT MYSELF. THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE.

I recently went back to the doctor to have my head checked for a fungus. The doctor pulls a hair and examines the root end under a microscope. I was fungus free, but you might want to check into that. Also he noticed that a lot of my hair was simply breaking off just above the follicle. My guess would be that I stopped taking prenatal vitamins a few months ago which may have caused weak hair growth during that time and that coupled with the stress may be the cause.
