Originally Answered: Suffering severe hair loss after Japanese Hair Straightening?
When your hair starts falling out, it is too late to do anything about it, your hair was crying for help and you ignored it.
You USED to have beautiful thick hair. You can have that again, but whatever chemicals that have gone in you system it took months to get there and it will take months even years to get it back to health.
That's another reason why the hair industry is a billion dollar business, their main job is to make TONS of profits, but they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or even hair loss, which you are now experiencing.
I've responded to many girls under 15 experiencing in hair loss since 2009. Women 60-90 have those same symptoms but it took them years to get there. But for 15 & under, giving advice here? They can't predict the future of their hairs, until they're in their 30's, but 15 & under with hair loss? C'mon!
When it does that, it is too late to do anything about it. That's another reason why the hair industry is a billion dollar business, their main job is to make tons of money and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss, due to 'abuse'.
It may grow very slowly or none at all if you've straightened your hair in the past.
You get all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
Prenatal vitamins don't make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they're pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
· Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
· Biotin - cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
· Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
