Answer
As long as your follicles are alive and undamaged, they are capable of producing hair. In your previous message you said you see new baby hairs growing. New growth is a sign that follicles are still alive.
If the type of hair loss you are experiencing telogen effluvium, new growth will occur, but shedding will continue until telogen effluvium is resolved. Losing 35 hairs per day is not abnormal. We all lose from 50-100 hairs per day. Most of our daily hair loss goes unnoticed.
The white bulb at the end of your fallen hairs is normal. It only indicates that the hair transitioned into the telogen stage prior to falling out. (The white bulb develops during the telogen stage of the hair growth cycle.) In the telogen stage the hair rests in the folicle for approximately 3 months before being shed. Once a hair is in telogen there is no way to prevent it from falling out.
It is important to determine what is causing your itchy scalp, and to address the issue. Any type of scalp disorder can inhibit healthy hair growth.Essential oil scalp treatments can help stimulate healthy new hair growth. Although essential oils can be very helpful it is important to determine the type and cause of hair loss, and to address the underlying issue.

Female hair loss is my main focus. Women today are very susceptible to several types of hair loss including telogen effluvium, alopecia areata, and androgenetic alopecia. I can answer questions about the causes and types of female hair loss. I can share information about natural holistic remedies to improve female hair loss conditions.

Experience

My interest in female hair loss sprung from my own experience with extensive hair loss. Determined to grow my hair back, I diligently studied every piece of information I could find on the biology of hair growth. After successfully re-growing my hair with safe and effective natural products, I felt compelled to learn more and to share this information with other women. I am experienced in blending custom hair loss formulas. I am also experienced in writing about female hair loss issues.
