Dry Hair: Kerastase is hands-down the best shampoo on the market, however, you will pay a price for perfection.

I have irregular menses, heavy eye's, continuous dark circles, dry hair, thyroid-normal, hb-11.2, father had renal failure, can u please help?

Ok, hold on, don't: Go make your will yet. Sleeping well at night? Stress level elevated? Crying spells? Issues with weight? You may be having irregular menses b/c you are not ovulating regularly. This is pcos, usually. This can put you at risk for a mood problem, often signified by sleep disruption. There is a link to diabetes, if pcos, metformin can help and prevent dm in many cases. I'm sure ur kidneys r ok.

Autoimmune, celiac, vitamin def, thyroid, anemia all normal. Still having dark circles, dry hair is thinning, dry skin, could it be pcos or low acid?

Dry thin hair& skin: Sounds like you've had all the proper blood work. I would make sure you get vit D and B checked. You could have an intolerance to gluten which would not show up on any lab test. The sx also sound like you maybe malnourished. Have you been doing extreme dieting? I know when I diet everything is affected, and not right away. Try going gluten free, and drink water and tea. No soda. Feel better!

Skin: You might try essential fatty acids. Alpha linoleic acid (ala), linoleic acid (la), DHA and EPA which can be found in primrose oil and fish oil. These can help the skin and hair. Also make sure you have a a good healthy gut and take probiotics.

Alopecia vs fungus: Child probably is developing alopecia. It would be important also to rule out a fungal infection of the scalp. Best would be to see a dermatologist who can do a Woods light examination and a KOH prep and tell you the diagnosis and treatment right away. If it is Alopecia he will also be able to guide you properly and reassure you. If required further work up can also be initiated.

How do I get dry hair?

Shampoo, blow dry: Most dry hair is caused by over-shampooing and over-blow drying, no matter what you've read. Shampoo less frequently, perhaps only once or twice a week; add a conditioner; avoid blow drying and harsh styling products. That will work 99% of the time. If it doesn't, see your doctor to rule out an underlying cause.
