Trying Biosil drops

I'm in early menopause due to a concussion last year so my hair is quite thin now. About 5 months ago I decided to try Biosil drops. They taste really terrible, so I bought some empty capsules from the health food store and when I think about it I will take 15 drops in two capsules which gets past the taste problems. Even with the hit and miss schedule I'm getting a lot of teeny baby hairs which are very tightly curled. It has made a small difference in filling in the thin spots on the top of my head. I'm going to take it more consistently and hope if I give it more time, at least another year, I hope it will slow down the menopausal hair loss.

Maybe this can be useful to someone else too.

    I'm sorry to hear about your concussion. I had a very bad concussion several years ago, and recovery was nasty.

    I have the Biosil drops, and you are right that they taste icky. I hadn't thought about putting them in a capsule. I will have to try that sometime. I just kind of stopped taking it recently (taking too many supplements!) but should start it up again.

    Update: so I took the Biosil for a while and it really did help with some regrowth.  Then after about 8 months or so, my hair started thinning drastically again.  This time it's because of hormonal havoc from PCOS which i've struggled with since puberty.  Now I'm trying bio-identical hormones (Pro-gest) along with Silica to see what will happen.  I need to give it at least 6 months to see any results or not.  

    I'll try to remember to update again in the spring in hopes this combo might be suitable for others.
