Interesting. I tried dating guys for their 'minds' instead of their looks. I managed to get guys with personalities as bad as their looks.

ROFLMBO.  omg, MF, that one made my day.

Jared my dad has been taking saw palmetto for a couple of years, as well as using a shampoo that has rosemary oil in it. I use it as well, it's called Avalon Organics, the volumizing one (not that I care for volume, but it's the one that has rosemary oil in it). My dad has literally reversed hair loss. He has grown a full set of hair! He makes me feel his hair every time I see him...lol. I am using it because last year my thyroid got a little out of whack and I lost like half of my hair! I am happy to say the rosemary shampoo is working wonderfully. I don't take saw palmetto...but I do take 2500mcg of biotin daily.

I could have sworn it was higher testosterone that was associated with hair loss, not higher estrogen?

I think that it is hormone balance - in general. Testosterone is denatured into dihydroxytestosterone (DHT) which is the bad guy. The question researchers are asking is if this process is triggered by a hormone balance wherein too much testosterone or estrogen will evelvate DHT or only elevated Testosterone will do it.

The arguement for hormone balance holds several parts. One is that hair loss tends to happen after testosterone levels drop naturally with age, during this time estrogen levels are rising. Secondly, testosterone can be denatuerd into estrogen or DHT - so it holds that if estrogen levels are high, then the body will choose a different path to dump testosterone. Thus, keeping the ratio of estrogen to testosterone should be important.

I will check out some rosemary oil shampoos!

My testosterone tends to rise rather quickly...the only way for me to keep all of my hormones leveled is by taking a B complex and NOT lifting weights! My husband has to do the exact opposite! If I lift weights I turn into Jilian Michaels...lol.

Does anybody know if shedding occurs at a particular time of day? I tend to shed after sundown. I cannot find any loose hairs till after sundown, then I seem to shed. Is this hormonal?

I only seem to shed when I  brush my hair, which is bedtime and first thing in the morning. Sometimes there's more hair on the brush than other times, but I've never noticed any kind of pattern to it. It would make sense that it should be hormonal, and be different at different times of the month, but I haven't been paying attention.

Jared which one did you order? If you have a Whole Foods nearby they sell it there (also Sprouts or Henrys depending on what part of the country you're in).

I get a volumizer shampoo from Aveda which I've been using for a long time.  My hair is fine but I have alot of it.

When I first found Aveda products they were in a hotel and I used the sample of "Rosemary and Mint Shampoo".  

Hope this helps.
