Have chronic stress. Will no hair loss product work? How can I help my hair?

I heard that if you have chronic stress , no hair loss product will work to restore or regrow hair until the stress is relieved, is this correct? I take 1000mg of Saw Palmetto, 1000 mg of Biolin, use Ducray Anastim Chronostim (started 4 days ago), and take a multvitamin with B100 complex. I suffer from manic depression as well.

Hello,

Yes, stress may cause hair loss. So do regular exercise and yoga may useful.

Supplementation of zinc or magnesium may helpful.

Check for hypothyroidism or anemia or fungal infection etc.

If symptoms not improved please consult your dermatologist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Even taking your vitamin for hair loss, a certain amount of hair will fall out every month anyway. So don t be concerned by normal shedding. Problems arise when the shedding of hair is greater than the regeneration. Some things are associated with greater hair loss: * heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, and lead. * sudden weight loss * increased stress * excess copper (oral contraceptives can result in excess copper) * underactive thyroid gland * a diet low in b vitamins * women can lose more hair after childbirth Also, bleaching, perming and some colour treatments will cause a lot of hair breakage. Its important to understand these causes so you take the correct approach - you may not need a vitamin for hair loss. You may need to correct thyroid activity, or deal with heavy metals. If you re concerned about excess hair loss, it might be a good idea to find out what s causing it. A Checklist * Are there hereditary factors? * Are you taking any medications that might have hair loss as a side effect or that prevent absorption of any vitamin for hair loss you are taking? * Are you under a lot of stress lately? How many of these vitamins and nutrients are in your vitamin for hair loss? Folic acid - may delay the onset of grey hair, and is helpful in preventing hair loss. 500 - 2000 mcg (that s micrograms) per day Paba - some evidence from the 1940 s that it can help return grey or white hair to its original colour Biotin, Pantothenic acid, & niacin - these B vitamins are associated with hair health. silica - can be associated with hair loss. Supplementation of silica or silica rich herbs like horsetail are recommended more when hair follicles are still alive. 30 -50 mg per day zinc - associated with greyness and poor hair growth. May be beneficial for those with male pattern baldness, as it inhibits an enzyme associated with converting testosterone to DHT (wh
