My hair has been dropping alot lately and im starting to get worried. While others cant see much of a difference, i can personally feel my hair getting thinner. I think the biggest culprit is Accutane(i finished my 8 month course).... So SP, i need suggestions and information
I read online that Biotin, Collagen and Zinc supplements can help in growing stronger hair and reduce hair loss. I started taking Collagen supplements yesterday but many articles online say collagen supplements dont actually work so Im going to wait for results before judging it for myself.... and so we have biotin and zinc. A number of people wrote articles raving about how biotin helped improve the condition of their hair but there are also articles saying biotin will not help accutane induced hair loss. im not really sure which is correct and which is not. Does anyone have input or experience on this ??
And finally we have zinc. Most of the articles and reviews written were pretty positive but there are alot of mumbo jumbo about copper and other vitamins that i dont get. Apparently Zinc supplements can cause copper deficiency and other things. Can anyone explain in layman's term about how Zinc supplements actually work ??
I have actually asked my hair stylist about it and she couldnt help much because she didnt know how accutane is making my hair shed and i've stopped seeing my doctor regarding accutane.
While the hair loss from accutane is supposed to be temporary, there are reports of it being permanent, and to make things worse, my family has history of hair loss and you can imagine how scared i am right now.
