    OK basically my hair has always been healthy but I think I changed my shampoo a few months ago and my hair has started to fall out like there is no tomorrow .

    Basically to counteract this I've been told to massage my hair with mustard oil but the question is; how frequently? Also I have been told to eat a lot of yoghurt mixed with milk is this good?

    Also what shall I do to my diet? Coming from a South Asian family means that I consume a lot of pitta breads/chappati's. What shall I do? I don't mind getting rid of those things completely, I'll do whatever to stop my hair...:cry:


    Pictures of your hair please. I think your exaggerating to be honest.

    What zinc tablets? And can anyone give me advice on what I said in the original post? My hair is just flying away and I need help quick.
    Go to your GP and get referred to see a dermatologist rather than having people online try and guess the reason for your hair loss which could be 1 of 100 things.

    I honestly doubt the GP is gonna do anything about it. They're always making excuses.
    Making excuses for what?

    Yeah zinc tablets. My hair was falling out in actual clumps and handfulls and I thought I was going to lose all of my hair. The doctor said it was because I have pcos and didnt help, but my mums friend is a nurse and suggested zinc, and it has helped. My hair still comes out but not in clumps. Its worth a try! x

    What zinc tablets do you take if you don't mind me asking? Thanks.
    I just had a look at the pot and it says there called vitaminstore. But I looked online and couldnt find it. I get them from savers and I have seen them in the supermarket. Im sure other makes wil do the same thing. I have no idea if zinc is suppose to work but it did for me - Im not a doctor!! Good luck x
