Bees, does anyone have a magic cure for hair loss?? My hair is fine, thin, and when I brush it after washing (and even throughout the day), I feel like I am losing so much hair! It’s awful :/
My blood work seems normal so I don’t think it’s an underlying medical issue. I let my hair air dry but always have it up in a bun or ponytail which probably causes some breakage (especially when I put it up when wet)?!
I rarely use heat tools and when I do I use a protective spray ….

My hair is similar. Even dying it can damage it so much. I’ve really cut back on using any heat tools. When I put it up, I use spiral hair ties, like these: https://www.amazon.com/Kitsch-Spiral-Hair-Phone-Coils/dp/B01G4GPPY4?th=1
Before I brush out my wet hair, I use a detanglar spray. I like the Not Your Mother’s line. Their “Way to Grow” Leave in Conditioner: https://nymbrands.com/product/way-to-grow-leave-in-conditioner/ is great.
I also love “Beach Babe” Soft Waves: https://nymbrands.com/product/beach-babe-soft-waves-sea-salt-spray/. I use it on my brushed wet hair, do some light scrunching with my hands, and it dries on the way to work. It’s my go-to hair that doesn’t require any heat.

I lost about half my hair on my head about 2.5 years ago. I went to the dermatologist and they made some recommendations as well as things I found online; now I have very thick hair again. Both my hairdresser and strangers have complemented the thickness this year!
Dermaolotgist recommended: Rogaine (hair growth treatment, you put it in your hair once a day. You can buy it in Walmart, on amazon, etc. Theres off-brands too if you want to save $). I used this for about 2 years and now only use it like once a week.
You should also buy the Nioxin line of hair products. I personally use the shampoo and conditioner and the root lifter. World of difference and there’s a ton of reviews. You can buy on amazon, their website, or hair salons. I still use this currently. I ran out for about two weeks and noticed immediate hair loss.
I was also recently prescribed spironolactone for acne and apparently it’s good for hair loss too. I haven’t noticed a difference but my hair is already thick so..
if you want your hair to stop falling out, I would just get the Nioxin. If you want thicker hair/your hair to grow back, use the Rogaine too.
Good luck to you!

I will definitely give those a try. Thanks so much!! I’ve never had thick hair but have been noticing more and more hair loss which really sucks when you start off with thin hair anyways…

I have the same issue. I try to rub some pure aloe (and sometimes coconut oil) on my scalp a few times a week and let it sit. I feel like the aloe really helps with growth. Also I drink collagen powder every morning and take a vitamin e every other day.
I have lots of allergies, so I can’t use many traditional beauty products, but heat and coloring is super damaging, so if possible, lessen that.

Nioxin is the only proven hair regrowth treatment. Costco has a knockoff Kirkland brand one you can buy for a bit cheaper. It really works but you have to use it everyday for atleast 3-6 months to see results. You won’t see miracles in a few weeks.

Check your diet and digestion. Could also be medication. I tend to lose a lot of hair around my periods. Darned hormones.

Did you have your vitamin D levels checked? One day out of nowhere my hair started falling out by the handfuls. It actually scared the crap out of me. Previously I had been diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, but I had stopped taking it for some time. So, looked it up and hair loss is one of the symptoms associated with vitamin D deficiencies. I started taking high doses of vitamin D, and within two weeks my hair loss stopped. Now I take a regular dose daily and haven’t had the issue again.

Folic acid! I literally had bald spots, it has helped soo much. It also seems to make my hair grow faster!
