I take two teaspoons of fish oil daily. Haven't noticed it contributing to hair loss. I am on propecia, however, so not sure if that would make a difference. My gut tells me that fish oil is not causing your hair loss.

Fish oil makes igf levels rise the fin would block any dht made by the fish oil , i had hair loss from age 21 to 25 it stopped when i gave up taking fish oil then im 35 now and it seems the fish oil has caused it again, i eat fish twice a day and this does not effect hair only the supplement , i started the fish oil for my eye .

I feel I had a shed when I started fish oils for cholesterol, I went to krill oil.

Not sure if this is for different reasons, but Hasson/Wong told me to stop taking fish oil 1 week before my upcoming procedure in August.

Shampoo,

That was probably because fish oil, like aspirin, can thin the blood which is not good if you're going for surgery.

Fish oil is said to decrease Test/DHT levels. Try Krill oil, it is said to be better, not sure of the reasons though.
