I'm asking because I saw it mentioned somewhere... I think it was folic acid, but I can't remember...

All I know is that I'm shedding worse than a Pug.... I have hair all over the place... on the floor... on the bed... And my hair is pretty thin now... It used to be really thick... People used to praise me on how thick and luxurious my hair was... :(... Now, I can't even put it in a ponytail because its so thin that it looks stupid... *Pouts*
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Alot of folks use Folic Acid and some have even added in Biotin. I tried the Biotin but it didn't agree with me. I have heard that Folic Acid is very easy to tolerate though, so hopefully you will have some luck with it. Good luck!!

400-800 mcg of folic acid, but not more.
