Re: Solgar Brewers Yeast

I looked at the ingredients for Solgar Brewer's Yeast. It looks like the real thing. The next time I order brewer's yeast I'm going to try Solgar's.

Re: Hair falling out after Nizoral use, please help.

So basically, I had been using 1% Nizoral on my hair every day for a whole week. You didn't know that what was in the container was Nizoral, but shampooing the hair every day with any product is probably way too much. You also "use lots of hair waxes and pomades and such." It might be best to cut b...

Re: [VIDEO] SE from side view, front view and top view

most of the guys with thinning hair are guys on steroids. That is a good point. I would never ask these balding bodybuilders if they are on steroids. But I seriously doubt if one develops those massive proportions without them. It probably is the anabolic steroids that are causing the loss of hair,...

Re: Gut Microbiota

I sometimes get Vlasic Old Fashioned Sauerkraut at Walmart. It's under two dollars for a big bottle (32 fl. oz.) I like it but it's not my favorite food. It's hard to find Yogurt with live and active cultures. I found two types of this product at Kroger. The kind I now like best is Stonyfield Whole ...

Re: [VIDEO] SE from side view, front view and top view

but I found miniaturized hair on the back of my head too. Is it a normal case of male pattern baldness? Miniaturized hair (vellus hair, peach-fuzz hair) is always found on the scalps of people with male pattern baldness. It's not often found on the back of a person's head though unless way down on ...

Re: are dandruff and androgenic alopecia related?

I wish you would read this article about Environmental Sensitivities. Many people who post messages on this forum have problems similar to yours. Some people are more sensitive to environmental factors and these factors, in turn, can have a negative effect on the hair. It's a challenge for people wh...

Re: Can I do the scalp exercise too much?

You asked, "can you actually do too much of these excercices?" There is no way to tell how much is too much. In fact, I don't think you have to worry about doing the scalp exercise too much. When I first gained control of the scalp muscles, I did it over an hour each day. But I don't think you need ...

Re: Long term scalp exerciser

You said, "I hope the part about not requiring full contractions made sense as I feel it is important." You are obviously getting positive results from doing the scalp exercise without the full contraction of the scalp muscles. But for people just starting with the exercise, I recommend a full contr...

Re: are dandruff and androgenic alopecia related?

The following is an article from Livestrong.com with some comments I'll make after the quotation. Definition Dandruff is a condition in which excess skin flakes appear on the scalp. Though the body sheds skin cells regularly, normally the cells are too small to be easily seen. Dandruff causes the sh...

Re: Hair loss persisting during recovery from chronic anorexia

You have multiple triggers for telogen effluvium - prolonged psychological stress, weight loss, and bereavement. If these situations are now under control, your hair may rebound slowly, especially if you have a nutritious diet. But anorexia nervosa is a serious psychological problem, not so easy to ...
