Hi Ladies, I wanted to give an update after 3 months of my treatment - just in case it could provide useful insight to someone and also because I have a few questions myself There are other posts about my story but the main thing is I have been experience excessive hair shedding for almost two years (chronic tellogen effluvium, according to my scalp biopsy). After seeing many doctor who brushed me off (you know the drill), I finally went to a very knowledgable trichologist based in Australia. He said that hair shedding is almost always the result of some sort of internal imbalance. He ran some bloodwork and although my levels were in the "normal" range, I was on the low end of iron and vitamin d. So the treatment. He prescribed a very potent "powder" with the following ingredients: Amino Acids, Vitamin C, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Biotin, Selenuim and Folic Acid. Essentially, these are all the major hair loss vitamins plus iron. I take four teaspoons of this per day and was given a 6 month supply. In addition, the treatment also includes Vitamin D drops that I take every morning. He told me that once the internal imbalances are addressed, the hair loss should stop and regrowth should begin. He says I could see changes anywhere between 2 and 6 months. I began the treatment on July 6th and so that puts me at about 3 months in 9 days. So have I experienced any results? Well, there is good news and bad news. The good news is that for the first time since this whole hair loss mess, I am seeing tons of new growth! I mean, when I blow dry my hair, I see one inch hairs popping up everywhere! It is so exciting to see and I've never seen it like this before. Even my hair dresser commented! The bad news is that my excessive shedding hasn't stopped. It's hard to say if it's even slowed down, perhaps it has a little, but nothing I am satisfied with. I still shed over 200 hairs per day and when I comb my hair after the shower, I still see tons in my comb. So that's where I am now. The trichologist says that I should be patient and continue the treatment and he will run the blood tests again in another three months. My question to you ladies is, have you ever experienced regrowth but still shedding? Isn't it supposed to be the other way around...first a decrease in shedding, then the regrowth? I also wanted to get a second opinion from the hair loss experts I trust the most - you! In your experience, does it sound like things could be turning around or is it a really bad sign that I haven't stopped shedding after the 3 month mark? Finally, has anyone gotten their shedding to stop but it took more than 4 or 5 months of treatment? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much! Hope all is well! Hugs, Catie ps - sorry I wrote a novel!
