I have only taken Forteo for a month,(for Osteoporosis) but already my thinning, dull, straight hair is growing fuller, has more shine, and a natural wave has re-appeared. I also have less itching and skin sensitivity than before. I am thinking that an ingredient in Forteo -- perhaps the synthetic parathyroid hormone -- could have this effect. Have other patients had similar results? Please answer!
I can't say for myself, as I take Prolia. Since no one has answered you yet, I'm giving you a link to what other people taking Forteo have said about it. There may be an answer for you in there:
