I read a post on another hair site about a woman who experienced a similar situation to yours. People recommended oil mixes with jojoba oil, vitamin E, Peppermint, rosemary or basil (I like to combine peppermint & rosemary EO) essentail oils as they stimulate hair growth. It was also advised that she massage her scalp every day and avoid wearing hair bands or anything that pulls the hair back. Finger combing your hair is essential and always look at the ingredients of the products you are using.


Hope that helps.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago, and I agree pretty much with everything MadameX said, although I didn't try that particular combination of oils. Have your thyroid and iron levels tested first of all to be sure they're both OK as either can cause hair loss.

You might also try either eating more omega 3-rich foods and/or adding a fish oil supplement to your regimen. Taking either biotin supplements or a hair and nail vitamin can help also.

Be very careful about hair accessories - anything can put more stress than you realize.

Avoid hair spray with alcohol which we tend to use more around our face if we use it at all. I think that was drying mine out particularly in that area and causing breakage. Cutting out 'cones, sulfates and getting my hair and scalp generally healthier helped me more than anything, I think.
