Trial of a New Supplement

As you know there are a huge number of remedies out there which may help hair a small amount. Some are heavily hyped for a while and then disappear.

Still every bit helps and we need to keep an open mind. I have had a few direct patient reports of the benefits to hair and nails of diatomaceous earth.

Diatomaceous earth is a fine powder which is a high dose silica supplement. It is made of ancient fossilised sea creatures and the fine powder can be taken by mouth as a silica supplement. The superfine powder is also used as a non chemical insecticide because the fine silica crystals burrow into insect shells and cause the insect to lose water and die of dehydration.

For some reason it has never really taken off in New Zealand so you may not be familiar with it. Basically some people find it makes their hair grow faster and others say it makes their hair thicker.

So I would like to give it a trial and observe its effects in a few people. Not every supplement I have trialled in this way has panned out but this one may help some.

If you would like to be involved then please let me know. paul@hairdoctor.co.nz
