  • Primrose oil and hair loss and lady issues, oh my!

    Just a couple of Qs:

    1) Has anyone used primrose oil to stop/reverse hair loss?


    2) I've tried taking primrose oil for acne before my hair started falling out, two separate trials of the recommended dose for maybe one month each. I stopped each time because my period never came while I took it, and I got my period a few days after stopping. I also got some GI...distress while taking it. Why would this happen?

    Trying to gain weight, clear scarring acne, and fix thyroid and digestive issues with primal lifestyle- here goes something!

    No idea exactly why your period would stop, but it does affect hormones.
    As far as hair loss goes, I've had much better luck with he shou wu (also called fo ti). Shen Min is a good brand and you can get it discounted at
