well, I don’t care what the so called “experts” think, but I don’;t believe there is such a thing as a good shed.

btw, nothing can stop hair loss in 3 days, that was a fluke,

I would be surprised if this shedding was due to the pumpkin seeds - there must be another factor. For example, did you just have a period of stress - even for example thinking more about your hair? Also, did you change something in your diet, e.g. ate more grains (incl. wholegrain)/milk products/refined sugar/iron-rich food recently?

Pumpkins seed are supposed to act as a low DHT blocker, and have the highest content of Zinc. Saying that, I read somewhere that too much Zinc can badly influence the intake of copper (your hair need some), particularly if the intake is higher than 400% of the recommended daily intake (don’t ask me about the reference - can’t find it anymore).

You might want to copy your post in the Natural forum - posters like Pete2, Jakob, The Natural and Hanging might be more useful in finding a better answer than me.

Regards,

Dude … 3 days is not a response … I reckon you should stick your pumpkin seeds up your arse … and try 10mg Loratadine daily … take for at least 4 weeks to see a response … reduced my shedding by about 80% … going on almost 7 months now.

Mate … you cannot evaluate your hair loss on a daily basis … there are too many factors that come into play … even for someone like me who washes their hair …and counts lost hairs … once a week … there are significant varaitions every week. You can only look at trends over 3 months plus to see if an intervetion is having a response.

if you’re like me, I’ve had probably about 3 major sheds since being on proecia for the last 10 years. AFter each shed, i had a bit more permanent hair loss…

i had another major shed that started in april 2009 and i’m not sure if it has stopped…

it went from NW2 to NW4 in matter of 1 year and went on propecia and went back to close NW2 …now after 10 years, i’m somewhere around a NW3

it’s only a matter of time before i get to NW4 on my way to NW5…you get the picture…

you can’t stop your progression to your genetically predisposed hairloss , you can only slow it down…
