“Oh no! What am I going to do?”
In January, my hair fell out in chunks like the picture shows, four or five chunks at a time, every time I washed my hair. In the morning when I woke up, hair covered my pillow and my hairbrush was full of hair. After several weeks, I began to notice thinning and even bald spots on my head.
Finally, I decided to go see my doctor. “What is going on? What can I do?”
He told me that it was probably because I was so sick a couple of months ago. In November, I had a severe case of pneumonia.
He sent me to a dermatologist who confirmed that this happens after a severe illness. I later found out that many who had COVID also had hair loss issues. The doctor only had a recommendation for a medicine that had side effects. I didn’t want to go that route,so I started researching natural solutions.
I did a lot of research about what helps with hair loss and how to grow new hair. Within a couple of months of implementing these supplements, my hair began to grow back. Not only did it grow back, it came in thick and curly!
Here are the various supplements I discovered from my research that help with hair growth. These are the best quality I have found for the price.

Coconut oil is often said to be the best oil to use on your hair to reduce protein loss and keep it looking healthy. Given the current popularity of coconut oil, this would be easy to dismiss as a trend.
However, there is some evidence behind this claim. One older study published in 2003 examined the effects of applying coconut, sunflower, or mineral oil to hair before or after washing (3). To see which oil was best for protecting hair health, the researchers measured the amount of protein the hair lost after each of these treatments. They found that coconut oil was better at preventing protein loss than both the mineral and sunflower oils when applied either before or after the hair was washed.
In fact, coconut oil came out on top in all of their studies and reduced protein loss in hair that was undamaged, bleached, chemically treated, and UV exposed. Click here to buy organic extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil. You can put it all over your hair before washing it.

One last thing that made a huge difference is spraying my hair twice a day with a hair growth tonic. I use Young Living oils because they are pure.
