I had hair loss at the extreme level but i got rid of it by having the hair loss supplements. These supplements really worked. They improved my hair growth, nails and skin. I tried Omega-3 and DHA 250. Hair loss may be because of stress and anxiety also. See a doctor or try these supplements.
Do you know what caused your hair loss if you don't mind me asking?
