Don’t know about eggs and lemons and other goop, but I do know that since I started using Paul Mitchell products, my barber noticed.
Her exact words were “What are you using in your hair? It is so much healthier, mijo.”
For what it’s worth- Paul mitchell clean/conditioner, and sculpting foam instead of gel.
I wish I’d found them ten years ago.

I use coconut oil, and yes it is good for making hair longer/stronger and softer. I have heard about the eggs too, but I would not be able to bring myself to try that out.

My hair is also coming out in the shower. And the temples are almost vacant. I took maxi-hair supplement some time ago and it helped the temples fill in a little. I need to buy some more of the maxi- hair. I also make sure i rinse the shampoo and conditioner very well from my hair so my pours (sp) do not get clogged. I read and tried apple cider vingegar… gross. I love the smell of coconuts….....maybe I should use coconut oil as the above post mentioned. I just need to stop my hair from falling out (heredtary)

I no longer use either a brush or comb on my hair. While it is damp, I put a little Aveeno Pro curling cream on it and fluff with fingers. It helps that hair is curly and wavy and on the wild side. On a showerless day, I spritz hair with water and then do as described above.

As a teen-ager, before the days of cream rinse, I used to squeeze a lemon into a cup of warm water and run that thru my hair, and then rinse in shower.


(Try a multi-vitamin and perhaps a D3 supp.) And think about whether you feel stressed>
