I'm pretty new to the pH testing myself, but it may help you pinpoint the reason for your hair loss. If you are acidic, your body will leach alkaline minerals needed to do certain functions in order to nuetralize the acids in the blood stream. The blood stream has to be kept at a very narrow range (I think at about 7.3) or death will occur, so it will take the minerals from wherever it needs to if it doesn't get an ample supply from your diet.
The pH strips where hard for me to find too, and expensive ($16/roll), but I think it will last you a month or two, if you check your urine multiple times a day. Feel Rite has them if you have one near you, that's where I found mine. It may be cheaper to find them online.
Oh, just so you know, <7 = ACID, >7 = ALKALINE, 7 being nuetral.
Also, Horsetail may be a helpful supplement for you. It is high in silica, which I believe contains silicic acid, but is important for growing hair and nails, and is good for the skin too. I'm not sure about the acid part though. I'm sure you could easily find capsules at a store near you, although I'm not sure what the best brand is. I usually get Nature's Way.
There are the acid/alkaline forums that MAY help, but they tend to confuse me more. I have a GREAT book on an acid-alkaline diet, which has a lot of very useful information. Here it is on amazon:
Maybe the $16 strips will help you save money if the doctor's aren't. I hope you find your answer :).
