    Iodine
    Trace mineral, meaning that the body needs it in only very low doses. This essential mineral helps regulate thyroid hormones, which means it takes part in the energy regulation of cells and the chemical building blocks that create and maintain cells. It is necessary to regulate and produce thyroid hormones and prevents dry hair, greying and hair loss. Salt for human consumption is often fortified with iodine and is referred to as iodized salt
    Recommended daily intake is 150 micrograms of iodine per day for both men and women. However the daily FDA intake recommendation may be 100 x too low
    Warnings: Pregnant women should take a lower dose as it can interfere with the foetus’ thyroid

    Never heard that before, sounds interesting. I don't think you are insane, when compared to the things we all have tried in order to increase growth and all. I'll never forget the 1st time I read that people were using Monistat. I about fell off my chair and promptly went and bought some If you do try this it would be nice if you tracked your progess and shared your routine/frequency with the rest of us

    Was just going to say people with thyroid problems should avoid iodine, also anybody using this please be careful as by adding extra iodine into your diet can induce hyperthyroidism and goiters and may even trigger autoimmune problems; personally and ive my nurses hat on here for the sake of faster growing hair (if it works) risking your health isn't worth it!

    I have hypothyroidism and its horrible!

    I am using arnica on my scalp right now, and I swear it's made my hair grow a lot.
    But I'm really curious about the iodine now.

    I get the impression the OP means topical iodine as opposed to supplementing it.

    Isn't it the stuff surgeons smear on the skin to sterilise it? Orange/brown liquid. I'm wondering if chemists might sell it, i think it's included in the ingredients of a either dettol or savlon spray too (though not a good idea on the hair i expect).

    I'm interested in this idea, is anyone going to try it?

    By the way, that's amazing growth.....i'm assuming your friend must be quite short?
