    I have known at least 10 completely bald non-smokers and only one 'nearly' bald smoker..how can we believe anything these 'experts' ever tell us?

    As interesting as this is, I contend that hair loss causes vaping!

    i seriously doubt that nicotine causes hair loss. I know loads of people who do not smoke and are bald.

    Propylene Glycol grows hair which may in effect neutralize the effect, if any, that nicotine has on hair loss.

    keep on vaping, you'll see

    I just read a link in a new thread (in the news forum i believe) which claims that people who use nicotine gum long term suffer teeth and hair loss! I can understand tooth loss from chewing the heck out of those things for 14 years, but hair loss? Of course they're blaming it on nicotine, calling it a "super toxin" (never heard that one before ).

    If smoking clearly does not cause hair loss, then it's definitely not the nicotine. Therefore, either their claims are inaccurate, or there's something in nicotine gum that they're not telling us about. Hmm.

    People chewing the gum are falling asleep while chewing it and waking up with the gum stuck in their hair? Hehe, maybe not but it's a funny image

    Hahahaha it's a good theory--if nicotine caused baldness there'd be a ton of us running around hairless. What a load o'crap! You couldn't fall asleep chewing that nicorette, gawd, that stuff is like gnawing on Silly Putty. It burns the hide off the inside of your mouth too. Those clowns who've flooded the prescription world with their lame excuses for nicotine replacement drugs just choke on the possibility that the Chinese have whomped them a good one with the e-cig. Sore losers.

    I can't speak to nicotine, but there is an effective homeopathic remedy for hair loss (and softening nails). My case was stress, but it can be other causes like extreme weight loss (not male pattern baldness, sorry guys. Besides, bald is sexy!).

    The mineral is called Biotin and can be found at any health store or vitamin section of the grocery/pharmacy.

    This was recommended to me by my hairdresser and it was amazing. Shedding hair in the shower ended in 10 days and my hair was so thick the next time I saw her that she was surprised - even though she knew how well it worked.
