    Default Something that Worked for me

    I noticed a year ago that my hair was thinning quite a bit at the temples and behind the ear. At only 31 I was severely distressed and began researching any and all possible solutions. After my blood and hormone levels all came back normal (including iron) I felt a bit desperate but not hopeless. I'm happy to say now that most of my hair has grown back and I signed up to this forum to give hope to others as I know how distressing this can be. These are the things I changed. I do not know what caused the regrowth but perhaps trying them will help others.

    I began applying a mixture of rosemary essential oil, cedarwood essential oil, lavendar essential oil, jojoba, almond oil, and castor oil nearly every night (overnight) on the affected areas.

    I stopped drinking tap water and got myself a Berkey water filter. A part of me believes that hormones in our water may be contributing to an increase in female pattern baldness but that's just a guess.

    Started supplementing with Biotin, Vitamin D and Omega 3 fish oil daily.

    I quit alcohol 2 months ago.

    Worked on managing my stress.

    I can't say which of these is responsible, or what caused my hair loss in the first place all I know is that my hair has grown back. Not all, but some, and more is coming.

    Hope someone finds this helpful.

    Sorry I don't know how to edit my post but I would like to add that I started drinking Spearmint tea daily which is supposed to help balance hormones. Given that my hair loss was in a pattern, despite levels coming back normal I believe there was still a hormone imbalance so I began drinking this tea daily as well.
