The first time I had Covid, I lost a lot of hair. I cut it and it grew back.
The second time I got Covid, I lost a lot of hair. I cut it and it didn’t grow back.
This occurred during the lockdown days when you could not go in to see a doctor.
I was on my own.
I started to pay attention to what was around me. I stumbled upon a solution - mushrooms, specifically adaptogenic mushrooms.
I began research into the benefits of adaptogenic mushrooms for hair loss.
I started to forumlate mushroom-based hair serums. These hair serums produced promising results.
The Experiment - Can Mushrooms Regrow Hair?
The Can Mushrooms Regrow Hair? experiment was launched on experiment.com, a platform for funding scientific discoveries, in answer to the Mycological Innovations Challenge Grant.
Not only did the mushroom-infused serum culture grow, it grew as much if not more than its synthetic equivalents.
Mushroom-mended, balance restored
The road to recovery led to a remarkable conclusion - I didn't need to fix my hair. I just needed to balance it.
The virus disrupted my hair growth cycle. Adaptogenic mushrooms put my hair cycle back into balance.
