I will add some more short tutorials as per request, on DHT blockers etc or other natural supps that work for me and others
This is a short history of my experience with hair vitamins. I started thinning when i was 21 way before all the internet and DHT blockers etc were around. I had no choice basically and all i could really do was take vitamins and change my diet.
I experimented taking anything you could imagine. I noticed that when i was taking like 20 different bottles of pills it helped my hair a lot, but the best results I got was when I took Ultra Hair by Natures Plus. Why? I think its because of the Biotin. There is 2000mcg timed released Biotin in there and biotin is critical for protein synthesis. B vitamins are water soluble so supposedly the timed release is more effective, although some would argue this point I have found timed release to work better.
Anyways I continued to thin on the vitamins, but I delayed my hair loss about 10 to 15 yrs I feel by taking them.
Your hair skin and nails are last in line to recieve nutrition by your body, The body considers them to be non important. It will nourish the intenernal organs, the brain etc, first and if there is anything left over the body will nourish the hair.
If you are at all deficient in any nutrient , you can be almost assured that the hair will get NONE of that nutrient, because of this pecking order. Also I feel that when the DHT constricts the base of the hair follicles, it cuts off the blood supply to the follicles, thereby constricting them somewhat. So even a normal healthy diet will not be sufficent, in nutrients for the hair, since the flow of nutrients is diminished by the constricted follicles in that area. This is another reason, in my opinion, for the vitamins.
I now Use Maxi Hair by Country Life because it is half the price Of Ultra Hair. and last time I checked it was like 8 dollars for 60 pills, this might have gone up.
All I know is that when I take the Maxi Hair, my hair grows thicker, faster, and is way more healthy. This is in no way a solution to hair loss, but it is a HUGE help, also mentally. There is a lot of MSM also in there and also horsetail, which if you do research , you find are beneficial to growth rate and hair overall healthy appearance. There is also 2000mcg timed released Biotin. For some reason, I found this Biotin to be the make or break when I was taking vitamins only, and I had no success in finding timed released Biotin in a stand alone Pill. Perhaps they make one now. When I took The same amount of Biotin every day, and it was not timed release? my hair still fell out in gobs in the shower. The Timed Release? for some reason stopped my fallout. May not do the same for you but its worth a try, These super hair vitamins are not simply thrown together. they know what works, and they put exactly that in these tablets. They build their business on repeat orders, people ordering the pills and thinking HEY THIS REALLY REALLY HELPS MY HAIR, they cannot survive as a business on first time orders. If these pills dont work people will not buy them again, thats why they have been around for years and the companies are successful
A super hair vitamin nowadays is not expensive, and it is a necessary element of your overall regimen. Also try to add a good chelated multi mineral. Will this solve your problem? no but it is by my own history A HUGE HELP, and part of the overall equation
