hi, I'm 33yrs old and female, i have suffered from hair loss since i was 17 yrs old. Before i had long and thick hair. In those days all i had to do was pull at a my hair and it would fall, it was so loose at the roots. With time it just kept falling despite all treatments. I tried many shampoo's, pills and last resort was minoxidil solution. At first my hair stopped falling but the texture of my hair was very dry and terrible to manage.

It's an exaggeration if i say that i don't have hair at all but the crown is getting more and more visible and it's embarrassing when i go out to fancy places. I am trying the 2 tablespoons ACV with 1/4 tablespoons baking soda 2 times a day the final hair rinse with diluted ACV twice a week it looks more manageable and hair falls but i am not expecting a miracle right now. I just wanted to add to this person's testimonial as i feel I'm in the same position only thing that worries me is i don't know if i have fungus and whether i need iodine supplements.

thank you to all for your honesty and it really warms the heart to know that people care.

I am 32 years old and from India and had a very thick hair before i came to US 3 years back. Eversince i have come here i started having terrible hair loss. I never had any ailment, stress etc. I have seen many of my male friends going nearly bald here. Is it in the water that we drink or shower. The right side of my scalp got more affected. Cutting the story short, i have started taking ACV for about a month now, 2 tablespoons in a glass of water taken twice a day. I also use diluted ACV as a final rinse when i wash my hair every weekend. I can say this - my hair has started looking much healthier. I cannot say if it has reduced my hair loss, i hope it does. I also started taking cold shower wash instead of hot water.
