Msm And Hair Growth

Has anyone ever used MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) for their hair growth? I'm currently using it and it works!!!!!! It's a naturally occurring sulphur that we are born with. As we age, we have much less. It's a supplement that is sold in all health stores, pharmacies and grocery stores.

If you have used it, please do share your experience with it..........

If you do your research and decide to try it, be sure not to over do it. Start out small (500 mg) and work your way up. Fortunately it's not toxic and it is also very good for your bones, arthritis, osteoporosis and even better it detoxifies you--that's why you cannot take too much in the very beginning.

My hair length was 17" before taking MSM. After 3 month my hair was 20." (3 inches in 3 months). My hair normally only grows 1/4" per month. This is not a commercial and I Do NOT work for any MSM manufacturer/distributor (or I would try to sell you on a particular brand - lol).

If you want your hair to grow longer use MSM.
If you want your nails to grow longer use MSM.
If you want clearer skin use MSM.

I am just so happy to share this with you because it has taken me years to grow my hair and it has never, ever grown at this rate. I do however wish it would grow even faster/longer because I have a LOT of catching up to do, but I am happy that it is working. I will keep taking it to see how long it will work for me.

Please let me know your experiences or if you plan to use it.

Thanks and HHG (Happy Hair Growing)!

Hi! My name is Jaclyn. I recently turned 50, going through menopause, and fighting weight gain. I read several reviews about MSM and decided to purchase some. I am starting my first intake of MSM 3/12. I truly believe I've stumbled up on something that is going to continue my natural hair journey. Thanks for your encouragement. Hopefully, I will keep you posted of my personal results! :)

Hi Jaclyn! Ugggg the weight gain (yuck) me too. Can't seem to get rid of the belly fat. Coming off very slow. It's because of our age?? or our eating habits?? or both maybe??? Good luck with that. Please do keep up posted with your results and offer any ideas for hair growth. There's so many scams out there, but I truly believe that there are real solutions as well. The problem is that they're so well hidden that we are probably just not noticing them. Also, if you suffer from any arthritis, MSM is good for that too! :)

I have been taking MSM for about a month and I have had extra energy and face is even clearer. I recently had a baby and started shedding edges of hair line. Immediately I boosted my intake of water, vitamins, and started MSM. Shedding stopped and hair line is growing back rapidly. So far results are awesome. Will keep posted.

Hopefully everything is working for you. Congrats on your new baby! Just be sure to drink LOTS of water when taking MSM or Biotin to avoid any breakouts :( Garlic capsules have helped me somewhat with breaking hair as well. Best of luck to you!!

Maybe if you take your MSM with a little food, it might help you with the slight illness - nausea? Also, since MSM is also a detoxifier, be sure to drink as much water as you can to push the toxins through you faster and allow the MSM to work better for you. Best of luck!!

Make sure to drink plenty of water. MSM cleans out your system and if the stuff is not flushed out you will feel the effect. Also take with food. My hair has grown a lot since taking it. I have a channel "elematamuk1". Feel free to check it out.

Sorry busy with little is "elenatamuk1"

Good info...thanks for sharing.

P.S. like Ravenhorse mentioned, horsetail (silica) is also very good.

Oooh lavender oil and coconut are supposed to be very good. And coconut oil is also a very good moisturizer. I use it on my hair right after I wash it (to keep the moisture in). When I use a shampoo with SLS (for clarifying) I use a little extra coconut oil on my hair - it stops the drying a whole lot! You cannot go wrong with coconut oil.

You are right. I don't want to overdo it either. I only wash my hair once per week or every other week. The night before I wash it, I put essential oils on my scalp and massage it in. Then I wrap my hair up overnight and wash it out in the morning. I think that the best way to help the essential oils to penetrate your scalp is to wrap your hair in a plastic wrap (some beauty supply stores sell the little plastic caps). I personally use plastic wrap and then I cover everything with my scarf. I'm glad that I'm reading this again, because I keep forgetting to moisturize my ends everyday. I think that lavender and coconut oil would be great for massages. But if you don't plan to wash your hair the next morning, I would only use a very little. Have you seen any progress since our last chat? I hope so. HHG!!

@ Inherownwords I used to experience a LOT of tangles until I learned a new trick to fully avoid this. After I wash my hair, I put conditioner on my hair and then comb my hair out while the conditioner is on it. After showering, I rinse the conditioner out (WITHOUT MASSAGING). I just let the water fully rinse my hair. Afterwards, I don't use a towel to massage my hair dry. I use a towel-like cap and wrap it around my hair to soak up all of the excess water. When I dry off and take the towel from my hair, I immediately put about 1tsp of coconut oil over my hair (without massaging) and then comb it through. Results: No tangles :)

Also, I found that the best way to avoid tangles when massaging my scalp is not to move the hair around as much when massaging. I place my finger tips directly on my scalp and move in a circular motion, but making sure not to move my hair around. Keeping my finger tips flat and slightly pressing on my scalp. If there is any tangling at all, then I use my fingers to untangle. Hope that helps!

Hi guys! It's been 5 months since I originally posted this message. My hair is now 24 1/4" now. (which means that it grew 4 1/4" in 5 months). Can anyone tell me how I can post some pictures so that you won't think that it's all talk? I'm still trying to grow out my hair and I want to share the progress along my journey. Please feel free to share yours as well! I look forward to it!

I am 59 and loosing hair in the top middle section of my head. I wonder if I can take the msm
capsule and mix with olive oil and use as a leave in on my scalp? What do you think?

Hi sayareree! Thanks for joining! I'm not certain how it would affect your scalp-I've never tried that before. I've experienced so much more results by taking supplements internally. My suggestion would be to take the MSM (with water or juice) and massage the olive oil on your scalp each night for 5 minutes and leave in. Also, I've tried garlic pills when my hair used to shed. Hope that helps!

Hi sayareree, I'm sorry to hear about your hair loss. I know the feeling!! Sometimes I use a mixture of olive oil, sage oil, and cedar wood oil. About a teaspoon of each. Mix together, apply to the scalp and leave-in overnight. Wash out in the morning and style as usual. All 3 of these are supposed to stimulate the scalp, stop shedding and increase hair growth. Very good luck to you!!

P.S. You don't have to wash out in the morning if your hair is dry or If you simply don't want to. Since olive oil is a carrier oil, it will carry the other oils to those parts of your scalp that need it most and any excess may come out during combing and/or brushing.

I've tried both Horsetail and used both Mane N Tale Shampoo and Conditioner. The Horsetail didn't work for me. I used it for 6 months. and nothing. I do like Mane N Tale Shampoo and Conditioner, although they didn't assist me in growing my hair any longer. I do like the scent and how it makes my hair look and feel.
