The True about Shampoos & Frequent asked questions !

We have a tendency to believe that the "right" shampoo it's the solution for all  Hair Problems!

But it's not..... The first objective of the Shampoo is to clean your hair.

1. What is Shampoo?

Shampoo basically has three main components: a surfactant or other ingredient to cleanse the hair, a moisture or protein agent to smooth the hair and make it soft and shiny, and fragrance. The most varied of these ingredients is fragrance. In fact, in many products, the only difference is the fragrance used.

2. "My scalp is so Oily"! Why it's hard to find a good Shampoo?

  A common complaint of individuals with oily scalp is "when I shampoo every day to prevent my oily scalp, my hair gets so dry", but if I use conditioner, the hair at my scalp looks oily within hours. We recommend to use always shampoo for normal hair, avoid Shampoo to strong that just will made your scalp over reacting and produce more oil and dry your hair ends!The problem of oily scalp vs. dry hair can be resolved with a little bit of adjustment in the treatment routine. First of all, there's no rule that says you have to work your shampoo completely through your hair. Try applying and massaging the shampoo only at the scalp, and apply your conditioner only on the ends of your hair. 

3. Why you should avoid Shampoo and Conditioner Combos ?

    Shampoo washes your hair and conditioner attempts to make it softer. Shampoo tends to lighten your hair whereas conditioner can weigh it down (by adding moisture and, in some cases, essential oils). You want to apply shampoo more aggressively to your scalp, because that's primarily what you're trying to clean, but conditioner is more effective when you focus on the ends of your hairs. (In fact, putting the bulk of conditioner in the center of your head and on your scalp can make it kind of gross when you have longer hair.) Because the two types of hair products are pretty different, you lose the ability to use them to their greatest benefit when they're combined. Basically, there's nothing wrong with shampoo and conditioner combos, but they're more effective when applied separately and effectively. 

4. How dry Shampoo works ?

    Oil, dirt and pollution accumulate naturally on a daily basis and need to be removed from the scalp and hair so the follicle remains clear, balanced, breathing and growing. But dry shampoos don't remove impurities — they only smother the follicle in the interim. Attempting to mask dirt and pollution with a dry shampoo only adds more grime and oil to your scalp and hair: like attracts like, so that build up you're adding to with dry shampoo is only going to get worse.
The point of dry shampoo is to absorb excess oil, but just like on the rest of your body, your scalp and hair needs oil. While an oily hairline isn't something most people covet, it's a natural function of your body and one that's integral to the health of your hair. So when you apply dry shampoo, it sucks up any oil on your head but it also stays put, leaving a dry shampoo/oil combination to sit on your follicle and, over time, sink in.
After a while, the buildup of this combo will be so severe that it'll completely clog the follicle, leading to possible hair loss and ultimately stunting growth.
Honor the long-term health of your hair and and shampoo daily with the right natural, totally organic shampoo that retains your natural oils!

5. What  Avoid in Shampoos and Conditioners ?
Does It Matter What Kind of Shampoo and Conditioner I Buy?

Although it shouldn't come as a surprise, harsh cleaning agents can damage your hair. The following chemicals are believed to be harsh and potentially damaging, but no definitive evidence has surfaced prove it:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate
TEA Lauryl Sulfate
Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate
Ammonium Laureth Sulfate
Ammonium Xylene Sulfonate

If you're purchasing dandruff-eliminating shampoos, you'll also want to consider avoiding selenium sulfide and sulfur. Either way, you should notice a trend: types of ammonium and and sulfur show up a lot in the "bad stuff" list.Sodium Laureth Sulfate sounds just as bad, however, but is a supposed to be a gentler alternative to the chemicals in the list above. Some argue you should avoid it as well but, again, there is no definitive evidence. If you want to be extra careful, however, you should steer clear of the listed chemicals.(

6. What is SLS or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate ?

SLS as a foaming agent used in shampoos can be effective in removing dirt and oil from your hair. However, the benefits may be short lived if you experience health complications as a result of using a shampoo with SLS as a primary ingredient. Regular use of shampoos containing SLS can result in scalp and hair problems as it can have an impact on the protective layers of the skin and hair, causing your scalp to become very dry.

Daily use of shampoos containing SLS may also promote the development of dandruff, hair loss and an itchy scalp. Your hair follicles may also suffer damage as a result. Some people may experience problems while others may not, or in some cases increased exposure can result in one or more of the conditions listed above. It’s important to consider the compound effect using a shampoo containing SLS can have. As most of us will shampoo daily, the chemicals in your shampoo will build up over time in your body. While there is no evidence to link SLS to Cancer or other serious health issues, if you experience scalp problems then we recommend that you buy an SLS free shampoo.(

Frequent causes that women start losing hair that sometimes they don't know !

1. Childbirth : During pregnancy, most women may notice their hair seems fuller  and do not fall out  as usually. That's because the high levels of hormones that keep resting hairs from falling out as they normally would. But, after childbirth, when hormone levels return to normal, those strands fall out quickly in the first 6 months.This can mean a surprising amount of hair loss at one time.  When your hormones are in balance again the hair will  fall less.

 2.The Pill and Other Medications : Hair loss can be  a potential side effect of birth control pills.  The hormones that suppress ovulation can cause hair to thin in some women, particularly those with a family history of hair loss. Sometimes hair loss begins when you stop taking the pill. Other drugs linked to hair loss include blood thinners and medicines that treat high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, and depression.

 3.Thyroid Problems : The thyroid is a gland at the front of the neck. It produces hormones that regulate many processes throughout the body. If the gland makes too much or too little thyroid hormone, the hair growth cycle may falter. But hair loss is rarely the only sign of a thyroid problem. Other symptoms include weight gain or loss, very dry skin or eczema, sensitivity to cold or heat, and changes in heart rate.

 4.PCOS : Women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) have a chronic hormonal imbalance. The body makes higher levels of male hormones than expected. This often causes extra hair to sprout on the face and body, while there is less hair on the scalp . PCOS can also lead to ovulation problems, acne, and weight gain. But sometimes thinning hair is the only  sign.

 5.Crash Diets : You may lose more than weight with a crash diet. People may notice hair loss 3-6 months after losing more than 15 pounds, but hair should regrow on its own with a healthy diet.If your diet is very low in protein or too high in vitamin A  you will shed some locks.

 6.Tight Hairstyles : Wearing cornrows or tight ponytails can irritate the scalp and cause hair to fall out. The same is true of using tight rollers. Let your hair down, and it should grow back normally.  Long-term use of these styles can cause scarring of the scalp and permanent hair loss.

 7.Cancer Treatment : Hair loss is an infamous side effect of two cancer treatments: chemo and radiation therapy. In their quest to kill cancer cells, both treatments can harm hair follicles, triggering dramatic hair loss. But the damage is almost always short-lived. Once the therapy is finished, hair usually grows back.

8.Extreme Stress : Extreme physical or emotional stress can cause a sudden shedding of one-half to three-quarters of the hair on your head. Examples include:
Serious illness or major surgery
Trauma involving blood loss
Severe emotional trauma
The shedding may last six to eight months.

 Did you  have a thinning hair or your hair is weak and falling more than usual ?
 I'm sorry, but  I don't have good news!
 I can predict the future of hair if you are doing nothing serious about, and the outcome is bad  because hair loss is a chronic disease.

Hair loss is a Chronic Diseases, meaning that it will start SLOW AND KEEP GETTING WORSE through time. The speed in the evolution of this disease differs in each, and it’s dependent on the balance and health of their defense system and nutritional balance.

The hair loss is a “process.” When you see few hairs or notice that the hair is getting thinner and weak, it is because the process started months or even years early. In general, it's the result of many  months or years, of one or more problems in the scalp, such as irritation, dandruff,  too much oil in the scalp, or sometimes too much dryness also.

The most common diagnosis  for hair loss are the androgenic Alopecia, or Male and Female Pattern Baldness, that is the most common and the kind of Alopecia.

The  evolution of hair loss

Look the bellow and  you will see the evolution of losing hair for men and women.

Next step is to know in what stage you are, in the progress of the Alopecia for Men:

Here are seven levels of loss on the Norwood scale:
Norwood 1
Normal head of hair with no visible hair loss.
Norwood 2
The hair is receding in a wedge-shaped pattern.
Norwood 3
 The same receding pattern as Norwood 2. Except that hairline has receded deeper into the frontal area and the temporal area.
Norwood 4
Hairline has receded more dramatically in the frontal region and temporal area than Norwood 3 and there is the beginnings of a bald spot at the back of the head.
Norwood 5
Same pattern as Norwood 4 but more reduced hair density.
Norwood 6
The strip of hair connecting the two sides of the head that existed in Norwood 4 and 5 no longer exists in Norwood 6.
Norwood 7
Shows hair receding all the way back to the base of the head and the sides just above the ears.

Baldness in women takes a unique pattern and is measured on the Ludwig Scale.

If your Hair loss is in some place of the stage for men and women, you need to take action now because will evolve to the worse.

We have 3 kinds of hairs that grow in the scalp:

Terminal = thick, fully pigmented, regular hair.
Lanugo = an intermediate hair that grows between the terminal and vellus hair phases. It pigmented and thicker than vellus hair but weaker than the terminal.

Vellum = a thin non-pigmented hair that can only see in certain angles of the light.

Each hair on your head has a growth cycle and because of  being chronic the growth cycle begins to decline  and causing  the hair follicle to shrink, by producing shorter and finer strands of hair. Eventually, the growth cycle for each follicle ends and no new hair will grow in its place.

Your body is always fighting to stay healthy and through this fight, he consumes a lot of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, proteins and much more. With this, as your body always try to protect your health, if you don’t have nourishment enough for your whole system, your hair will not receive the needed quantity & quality of what it needs to grow and be strong because any individual can still live without hair.

One of the most unusual findings is that most of the products that are in the market, give poor results or  DON'T  WORK.   There are even some that could aggravate the problem and accelerate the process of hair loss. For example, shampoos such as anti-oils, anti-dandruff for example, yes you dandruff could be better, but your hair will falling even more.

Chronic conditions, as losing hair, responds very well to a holistic approach, such as Homeopathy. We research and developed specific Formulas not just to stop but also reverse the Chronic process of thinning hair, weak hair.

But there is good news:

  It’s also possible to  stop and also to reverse the stages!

The Vida Hair Treatment healing process occurs in reverse order:

1. First, the hair will stop falling out.

2. New hair will start to grow in as vellum and lanugo.

3. Healthy hair will begin to grow back.

Stress and Hair Loss

How Stress affects your Hair

 Stress it's an overreaction of your body/ mind when is under pressure.

 Stress can and often result in hair loss due to some factors. One of the main reasons is that stress, through a complicated route, can increase your body’s production of adrenaline.

When you are under Adrenaline ( Alert system for your Body). The stress make your body be selective and try to protect the critical organs, for example, you are anxious, your heartbeat is faster, you start to sweet or yield, or maybe lose sleep.  It's the effect of an excess of adrenaline in your system. Your metabolism is fast; the body is working at high speed and protect the critical organs, consume more nutrients and fewer nutrients will go to your hair. Both acute and chronic stress will affect your health and especially your hair.

Another important point is that when we are stressed we often do not look after ourselves as we should. For example, we may skip meals or eat more processed foods than usual – which while convenient have little nutritional benefit. Diet has wide-reaching implications on hair growth, with improper nutrition being a leading cause of hair loss in women. This includes vitamin imbalances, iron deficiency, inadequate protein intake, and meals that contain too few calories. Stress also impacts digestion and the absorption of vital nutrients, reducing their effectiveness.

 The stress affects our immune system, making us more susceptible to illness. Like diet, general health is closely linked to hair health, with the flu, high fevers, and systemic upsets often triggering hair loss approximately 2 months later.

Stress can also trigger dandruff in individuals who are prone to it - and research is increasingly showing that flaky/itchy scalps can worsen or lead to hair loss.
People have long been known to willfully pull out their hair owing to anxiety, but it’s widely believed that chronic stress can cause inadvertent hair loss as well. 

Although androgenic alopecia, better known as male/female pattern baldness, is the primary culprit for shedding in most, physiological changes spurred by frequent, intense stressors can also lead to clogged shower drains.

How to Minimize the Effects of Stress:

1. Exercise

2. Yoga & Meditation

3. Massage, helps to relax, especially in your scalp, stimulate blood flow

4. Health experts have proven that the growth of your hair is 70% associated to what you eat. Eat Healthy, food rich in proteins + vegetables fruits., avoid alcohol and artificial beverages.  Do not skip meals.

Eating a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids can improve not just your hair but your overall health in many ways. It’s becoming well known that the typical American diet is low in omega-3 and higher in omega-6. You should aim to eat two to four times the amount of omega-3 than omega-6.

5. Add Multi Vitamin + B- complex daily

6. Add Vida Homeopathy Oral Spray  TO prevent(Breaks the vicious circle between Stress and Hair Loss}. 

7. If you are already feeling that your hair is falling or thinning you need to start wit Vida Hair Kit.

Why my hair's are falling out ? Frequent Causes

We  list the  more frequent causes of loosing hair that  you need to Know:

1. Vitamin A:

    Overdoing  of vitamin A in supplements or medications can trigger hair loss, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.  The recommended dose is 5,000 International Units (IU) per day for adults and kids over age 4. If you stopping taken, the hair will come back after few months.

2. Hormonal Changes:

    2.1. Womens after given bird,  because of the hormonal changes. During  the pregnancy, because the hormones are high , women lose less hair, but after  a bird, the hormones going down and it'is normal to loose more hair.

    2.2. So switching or going off birth-control pills or  menopause can also cause telogen effluvium ( hair loss)  and it may be more likely if you have a family history of hair loss.

   2.3. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (OPC)- An excess of androgens can lead to ovarian cysts, weight gain, a higher risk of diabetes, changes in your menstrual period, infertility, as well as hair thinning. Because male hormones are overrepresented in PCOS, women may also experience more hair on the face and body.

3. Any kind of physical trauma and emotional  stress such as surgery, a car accident, or a severe illness, even the flu—can cause temporary hair loss. When we are under stress or physical diseases your body need  and consume more nutrients to normalize your health, and less nutrients will go to the hair. ( Increase your dose of Multivitamins or B-complex to help)

4. Lack of Nutrients:

     a. Proteins - This can happen about two to three months after a drop in protein intake.The main source of proteins : meats, fish, eggs. Vegetarians need to find others sources of protein.

    b. Iron - lack of iron causes Anemia. In addition to hair loss, other symptoms of anemia include fatigue, headache, dizziness, pale skin, and cold hands and feet. Almost one in 10 women aged 20 through 49 suffers from anemia due to an iron deficiency. You doctor will have to do a blood test to determine for sure if you have this type of anemia.

    c. Vitamin B deficiency - A simple supplementation with B- Complex  should help the problem. B vitamins are needed every day because your body did not "storage" vitamin B. Find natural vitamin B in fish, meat, starchy vegetables, and non-citrus fruits. A  balanced diet plentiful in fruits and vegetables as well as lean protein and “good” fats.

   d.  Dramatic Weight Loss can cause lack of essential nutrients for the hair, proteins, vitamins, and others.( If your body did not have enough nutrition for  the primary functions of the body, the hair will not receive the nutrition they need, since the vital organs  are protected first.

5. Thyroid imbalance:

      Check with your doctor the health of your thyroid; a small imbalance can cause thinning hair and hair loss.

6. Others:

 6.1. Autoimmune diseases:
      Alopecia areata is the result of an overactive immune system that do not recognize they on cells, can be related with stress.

6.2  Certain classes of medication may also promote hair loss. More common among them are certain blood thinners and the blood-pressure drugs known as beta-blockers. Other drugs that might cause hair loss include methotrexate (used to treat rheumatic conditions and some skin conditions), lithium (for bipolar disorder), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) including ibuprofen, and possibly antidepressants.  
Anabolic steroids—the type abused by some athletes to bulk up muscle—you could lose your hair, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. Anabolic steroids can have the same impact on the body as polycystic ovary disease (PCOS).

6.3. Overstyling
Vigorous styling and hair treatments over the years can cause your hair to fall out. Examples of extreme styling include tight braids, hair weaves or corn rows as well as chemical relaxers to straighten your hair, hot-oil treatments or any kind of harsh chemical or high heat.

Thinning Hair the Bad & Good News

Here we go.....hold on for the Bad News

1. More than 30 million of  American women suffer from thinning Hair.

2. We can say that 1 of 4 women is facing this problem.

3. It's not true that thinning hair is related to Menopause, the average age for women dealing with thinning hair is 25 to 35.

4. Your hair association with self-image, self-steam and sex appeal, the psychological aspect of thinning hair affects women of all ages.

Before going to the Good News, let's answer some fundamental questions, and see the action you need to do when you notice that your hair is not growing as its suppose to (or is weak or you can see your scalp).

What is thinning hair?

Each time a normal hair follicle is shed, it is replaced by hair that is equal in size. But in some women,  the new hair is thinner and thinner - a more miniaturized version of itself. The hair follicles are shrinking, and eventually, they quit growing altogether. Women tend to notice thinning hair on the top front of the scalp.

We can compare the hair with the growing of the plants, where the strands are our "plants" and the scalp is our "earth". What happens "underground" it is what supports the plant to be strong and grow.

In the old times, and still today, there are studies about between lunar cycles and hair growth and also about seasons of the year and the hair.

What is the first step?

First, admit you have a problem. Each day you dwell in denial, and you're losing precious time.

That is why the first step is going to your physician for a checkup. Women hair loss is triggered by about 30 different medical conditions, as well as several lifestyle factors. As a starting point, hair loss experts recommend testing for thyroid problems and hormone imbalances. Sometimes no specific cause can be found, but do not panic about, because there is a solution!

The Good News........your Hair can be Healthy & Strong again!

Common complain that I used to hear when a patient came for a hair consultation: "I did what my doctor hormones now are balance, but my hair is the same..... " Nothing was wrong with me, my doctor's check up was good."  "I use almost, all kind of shampoos and nothing works."

Before we go to solutions......I would like you to understand my point of view on basic hair care and the "almost" magic solution.

1. The average scalp has 100,000 hairs. Each follicle produces a single hair that grows at a rate of half an inch per month. After growing for two to six years, hair rests awhile before falling out. It's soon replaced with a new hair, and the cycle begins again. At any given time, 85% of hair is growing, and the remainder is resting.

2. The 3 phases of hair that developed in the scalp are:

a)The phase of the Hair Vellum: We will see in the baby scalp a thin hair that we can see at certain angles of the light. 

b)The phase of the hair Lanugo: The hair will evolve with time and will be thicker than vellum and will have more color, but will be weaker than healthy hair

c)The phase of Terminal Hair: the regular hair that is thick, fully pigmented.

3. When your scalp does not have enough nutrients (for several causes), the hair will not reach its full development. The hair will begin a reverse process back to the stage of Lanugo, and then vellum until the growth process ceases.

4. Hair loss means a reduction in hair volume, making transplantation tough. unlike male-pattern baldness, where patches of hair fall out over time, female hair 

How does the "Magic" Solution...... work!

There are 4 Products that will work together to give you a Healthy & Strong Hair in 16 weeks.

Why we need that time? 

When you notice that your hair is weak....the cause of hair loss started way before you had noticed. That would be the time the body needs to restore your "earth"(scalp) so the nutrients could 're-vitalized" your strands.

The 4 Products are Vida Hair Kit, for external and internal use; find more

Thyroid & Hair Loss

Healthy hormone levels mean healthy hair growth. When your hormones are out of balance, your whole body will be affected and also your hair. Sometimes losing hair is the first symptom of hormonal imbalance and other diseases. It's imperative to go to your doctor for a check up if you have significant hair fall (more than 100 strands a day) or thinning or weak hair.What I observed in my practice as a doctor was the fact the we correct the thyroid imbalance with the right medication and we do not see the hair growing back as expected.

The article below will help you to understand all the factors that need to be correct to see results in the hair

How I stopped my Thyroid Hair Loss
Original Link. How I stopped my Thyroid Hair Loss

I always had very thick curly hair. Around the age of 30 I started noticing my hair clogging the shower drain from time to time. However since I still had so much hair, it wasn’t high on my personal list of worst hypothyroidism symptoms.
Then all of a sudden one close look in the mirror last year at age 43 changed all that.
As I was brushing my hair something caught my eye in the mirror.
Wait…is that my scalp showing through?
A closer look

My hair was noticeably thinner on both sides of my head above my ears, front, and at the temples.
My gut reaction was a scream, then tears.
What happened to my hair?
Then anger.
Hey Thyroid, Do NOT mess with me

I went into deep research mode, searching for every article I could get my hands on related to thyroid hair loss.
I was determined to save my hair…
Now my hair appears fuller, far less scalp shows through, baby hair has grown back at my temples, and the rate of hair loss has dramatically slowed down. I’m so thankful. Yes I know that may sound vain to be focused on my physical appearance but losing my hair was devastating to me. I have a feeling I’m not alone.
It took over one year of research, extensive lab testing, and trying various supplements to write this article (plus a fierce determination to get my hair back), so yes this article is lengthy.
Please note that I am not a doctor. I’m just sharing the ten things that worked for me in the hopes that you will discover what works for you too. As with all things in particular supplements mentioned at Hypothyroid Mom, consult with your doctor to be sure they are right for you and that you are taking the right dosage for your body. Our physiology is unique so what works for each of us will be unique too.

1. Optimal Thyroid Treatment

Every part of the body requires thyroid hormone for proper functioning, and that includes the hair follicles. In 2008, the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism presented the first evidence that human hair follicles are direct targets of thyroid hormones. This research demonstrated that the thyroid hormones T4 and T3 modulate multiple hair biology parameters from cycling to pigmentation.

You’ll notice that I bolded the words thyroid hormones T4 and T3. Why is this so important for those of us with hair loss?
In mainstream medicine, Levothyroxine drugs are the gold standard for the treatment of hypothyroidism. While these drugs work for some people, they fail for others. Levothyroxine drugs contain T4 thyroid hormone only. Our bodies are supposed to convert that T4 thyroid hormone to the active T3 hormone our cells need. For some of us our bodies don’t convert T4 to T3 properly, leaving us symptomatic. This is why many of us do better on a combination of T4 and T3 thyroid hormone replacement treatment.

The noticeable hair loss was a red flag for me that I needed to get to my doctor for thyroid testing. I’m on the natural desiccated thyroid Nature-thyroid plus a compounded time-release T3. My doctor did comprehensive testing including the essential thyroid tests TSH, Free T4, Free T3, Reverse T3, and thyroid antibodies. Turned out my Free T3 was middle of the range. I personally feel terrible when my Free T3 is low or even middle of the range. Optimal Free T3 for my body is when it reaches a top quarter of the normal range, so adjusting my thyroid medication dosage was an essential piece to my thyroid hair loss. What is optimal is individual and it’s about finding what’s right for you.
There are many different thyroid medication options. Finding a doctor open the treatment options to find what is right for you is key. Sadly not all doctors are open to the options and it can be a very frustrating journey. I’ve put together resources to help readers locate great thyroid doctors across the globe.
While optimal thyroid treatment was an essential piece of the puzzle, there were additional pieces critical to my hair loss solution.

2. Low Ferritin

Low ferritin (the stored form of iron) is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women. Given low ferritin is also a common problem for hypothyroid people, it is important to have iron testing including ferritin especially if you are experiencing hair loss. It is not enough to be told by your doctor that your iron levels are ‘normal’. Ferritin levels are not always tested. Get a copy of your lab results and be sure ferritin has been specifically tested. Even if ferritin is within the ‘normal’ range that doesn’t make it ‘optimal’.
Dr. Philip Kingsley is called the ‘Hair Guru’ by the New York Times. Why Is Ferritin Important? appears on his website:
Correct ferritin levels maximize your hair’s “anagen” or “growing” phase and encourage your hairs to grow to their full length. When you aren’t getting enough iron through your diet, your body takes ferritin stored in non-essential tissue, like your hair bulb, and gives it to essential tissue, such as your heart. Because your hair bulb is where all your hair cells are produced, this leeching of ferritin can cause your hair to shed before it reaches its maximum length.

    The average reference ranges for ferritin are 14-170 micrograms per liter, but our research shows that ferritin should be at least 80 ug/L (micrograms per liter) in women for hair follicles to function at their best.
Treating low ferritin was another major piece of my hair loss solution. I tried various iron supplements and many of them gave me digestive issues including constipation. With a life-long history of constipation, that was the last thing I needed. I have personally found that iron in the form of liver concentrate such as the brand Carlson Labs Buffalo Liverworks well for my body. My doctor regularly tests my ferritin to be sure I am taking the right dosage of iron supplements for my body and that I’m not taking too much because overdosing on iron can be dangerous.
I’m careful to take iron supplements including multivitamins with iron at least 3 hours apart from my thyroid medication to ensure the iron doesn’t interfere with the absorption of my thyroid medication.

3. Low Stomach Acid 

I read a fascinating interview with Dr. Jonathan Wright by Suzanne Somers Honey, I Shrunk My Ponytail! Turns out this article would change the fate of my hair.

DR. WRIGHT: If stomach acid is low, protein isn’t efficiently digested – and hair and nails are made up of… protein! If we are deficient in protein, our bodies know that we can live without hair or nail proteins, but we can’t survive without heart muscle proteins or other important body proteins. So if we are short in supply of protein, the hair or nails are the first to go.
Turns out low stomach acid results in malabsorption of iron (which as you know is necessary for maintaining our hair) and many other essential nutrients. Thanks to this article I discovered my own issues with low stomach acid and now take this Betaine Hydrochloric Acid with Pepsin just before heavy meals containing protein. This has also helped me personally with heartburn, gas, acid reflux, and bloating.

There are two additional ways that I increase my low stomach acid.  Every morning before breakfast I drink warm water and lemon. Before the larger meals of the day I take 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in water. I use Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar. This raw organic apple cider vinegar contains the ‘mother’ of the vinegar. The ‘mother’ is made up of beneficial living nutrients and bacteria. Another option is to take digestive bitters.

4. Nutrient Deficiencies

Nutrient deficiencies are a common issue for those of us with hypothyroidism. Not only are nutrients essential for thyroid function, but they also play an important role in keeping the hair on our heads from falling. A good quality multi-vitamin is important and of course, a healthy diet is essential, but still nutrient testing is important because many like me, will require additional supplementation to bring us to optimal. Testing should include zinc, vitamin D, B12, and magnesium (for each nutrient listed I attached an article that explains its connection to hair loss).
Nutrient deficiencies are an issue for me personally. I supplement every day to maintain my nutrients at optimum. When I noticed a worsening of my hair loss last year, nutrient testing revealed that I was deficient in all those nutrients necessary for hair health.

5. Drug-Induced Hair Loss

There are many different types of drugs that can cause hair loss. Here is a list of  What Types of Drugs Cause Hair Loss by WebMD:
Acne medications containing vitamin A (retinoids)
Antibiotics and antifungal drugs
Birth control pills
Anticlotting drugs
Cholesterol-lowering drugs
Drugs that suppress the immune system
Drugs that treat breast cancer
Epilepsy drugs (anticonvulsants)
High blood pressure medications (anti-hypertensives), such as beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, and diuretics
Hormone replacement therapy
Mood stabilizers
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
Parkinson’s disease drugs
Thyroid medications
Weight loss drugs
Did you notice that I highlighted thyroid medications on that list?
I’ve heard from many readers who had sudden worsening of their hair loss when they started one or another thyroid drug brand. Think back to the start of your hair loss, did it happen at the same time you started a specific thyroid medication?
