When most of my hair fell out, I lost it. Everyone kept telling me, "It's just hair, it's no big deal." Well, I'm sorry. MS already took my legs, put me in diapers and I was only in my early thirties. Now it was taking my hair! Call me insecure, but I have a fat face, wear glasses and have at least 6 moles on my head. This is not a chick that would look cute bald. So as mass depression was setting in, I had a regular check-up with my doc and that's when he dropped his little bomb on me. One bottle of zinc and a week later, no more fall out!
Just pick up a bottle of zinc tablets in the vitamin and supplement aisle and take them as directed. I've been taking zinc for over 3 years now and have a full head of healthy, shiny hair. This did come with one unexpected condition for me however, since the day I was born my hair has been straight as a board, till it all fell out. Then I started taking the zinc and it grew back curly. Again I have no idea why this happened, but as a chick who always wasted money on perms that fell out - I was thrilled! I bought a flat iron!
Three years ago I was on the verge of buying a wig when I discovered the answer to my prayers in the vitamin aisle. I know some people say it's just hair, but when you've already lost so much of yourself to your disease, sometimes it's really important to keep every little bit you can!
