Stress and Hair Loss - Update

Today I want to give you an update from my Stress and Hair Loss post from back in October.  If you are new to my blog or need a refesher, check out my post HERE.

Back in October, I was newly into blogging and I had decided to post about my ordeal with hair loss and stress.  Most of us are under some kind of stress and we all experience it differently.  I felt my hair loss was due to being stressed and I thought if I could get it under control, then the shedding would didn't, so that's when I decided to experiment.

I tried the vinegar method, spraying equal amounts of vinegar to water in a spray bottle, and it really did work; I couldn't stomach the smell but stuck with it anyway.  Two months later I discovered this wonderful company called Mountain Rose Herbs and was intrigued by their Invigorating Hair Oil..see my review HERE.

The Invigorating Hair Oil is meant to stimulate hair follicles therefore encouraging new hair growth.  I quickly asked to do a review and was given the opportunity to try it out for free.  I have been using it, now, for a little over 3 months and the results are astonishing!  My hair appears thicker, and I have minimal shedding.  From what I have researched over the internet (Mayo Clinic's website), the average person sheds about 50-100 hairs a day.  I can tell you right now that I was losing WAY more than that.  I was horrified!  I've always had thin hair but a lot of it...if that makes any since.

So, all in all, if you are having this problem, I HIGHLY suggest trying Mountain Rose Herbs Invigorating Hair Oil.  If you aren't into organic oils then try the apple cider vinegar.  I was using the brand below.


Like I said, previously, it was definitely working for me but I just couldn't stomach the smell.  I have a weak tummy and strong smells make me want to hurl!

In addition to the Invigorating Hair Oil, I have been taking High Potency Apple Cider Vinegar supplements and prenatal vitamins.  I don't know if it's the combination of the 3 or what, but I'm not trying to fix what isn't broken.  I will continue my routine since it appears to be working!

By the way, I still have extremely stressful days; that hasn't changed.

*Disclaimer: All opinions are 100% my own.  What worked for me may not necessarily work for you.  I am not a doctor, I only experimented and found what worked for me.

Thanks for the update! I have changed my eating habits last summer and lost 60 pounds, but also lost A LOT of hair after the change. I wouldn't be able to stomach the vinegar, but I am going to look into the Mountain Rose Herbs hair oil.

Hey Brenda! Congrats on the weight loss! Losing so much hair is just an awful feeling. Our hair is one of the things that make us feel feminine. I really love the Invigorating Hair Oil. I massage it into my scalp and let it sit for about 15 minutes and then shampoo it out. I also massage my scalp to stimulate the circulation. Hope it works for you too!

I have also always had fine hair, but a lot of it. It's naturally curly too, but as I've gotten older, my hair is thinning on the top. A doctor told a friend of mine to take Biotin, which you can easily buy at the pharmacy or health food stores. I haven't been on it very long, but I'm seeing new hair growth in the front of my hairline. Also, it's good for your nails. I will let you know how it works for me. You only have to take it once a day. If it doesn't work, I will give your method a try.

If you use the apple cider vinegar, do you have to leave it on the hair and not rinse out? I don't know if I could stand that smell either, nor anyone else that gets around me! LOL

You just spray it on your roots and leave it for about 5 minutes and then rinse. It doesn't matter if you, shampoo and condition because you will continue to smell it! Vinegar is some strong smelling stuff!
