    Sulfur will definitely irritate your scalp. It is used to dry up pimples. I am very, very skeptical that spraying something on your scalp will make your hair grow--even if it creates a tingly feeling and increases circulation. You should probably concentrate on taking a multivitamin and keeping your hair well-conditioned so the ends don't break off.

    i think you are right, what vitamin should i take? the product that i got instead which contains alot of oils contains mineral oil, but my sister said that it works for her,i woke up with my scalp dry and i saw some flacks, i just wash my hair about 4 days ago, my scalp was better before i put this so called oil thing in my hair.

    I think that just taking a basic daily multivitamin, like Centrum, is best. You should do that anyway, for your general health. I think that some people take extra vitamin B for hair growth, but...I don't believe something works until there has been a double-blind clinical trial.

    I take gnc ultra nourishair for hair growth along with some things for general health that also help the hair. My hair definitely grows faster while taking this...... for me... my hair grows super slow generally so any measureable growth sends me jumping up and down.

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    sulfur can be excellent for hair growth - i've been using a mixture since august with no irritation - my scalp has responded well

    you just need to do a patch test on your scalp before trying it all over..... see if you react

    there's no way i'd use a commercial preparation although seems lots of women have had results with shapley's MTG

    i've also been taking msm

    If you are interested in growing your hair there is a whole slew of vitamins to help that. My hair grows fast anyway and since I've been tkaing this concoction my hair has grown like a weed (I think I started in late august) I take:
    1 women's one-a-day multivitamin
    1 500mg caplet of silica
    1 1000mg caplet of MSM
    1 500mg softgel of Evening Primrose Oil
    1 500mg softgel of FlaxSeed Oil
    2 600mcg pills of Biotin
    2 GNC UltraNourishHair Pills

    Hope that helps! I take it in the morning after I eat (even if it is just a granola bar or something) ~~jax

    I second that although I cannot say if topical sulfur is absorbed or not for growth purpose but it kills fungus so it does help heal some scalp conditions, including some types of dandruff.

    Hair is basically made of keratin a protein containing 19 amino acids so it's a good idea to make sure you eat sufficient protein daily. Copper also plays a part in hair pigmentation and the B vitamins are necessary so stress won't make it fall out.

    In an old thread about hair growth a few years ago most people reported great results with Kal's Super Silica Plus with MSM*, which is a very absorbable silica supplment. I myself tried it and it helped regrow hair I'd lost due to being overmedicated with thyroid hormones, it also seemed to have a beneficial effect on my skin AND for us who are a little older it has the added bonus of strengthening our bones. I still take it periodically whenever I see my hair not being at its best; I just ordered a couple of bottles online about a week ago because it looks like my hair is thinning a bit again and is too fine and fragile.

    Biotin is part of the B-complex. It usually helps if the person actually has a deficiency of it, it must be taken in large amounts though.
