I’d have your doctor run some blood work.  Low B12 can be a reason for hair loss.  I’d have your B12, D, iron, folate, and thyroid checked.  Thyroid issues cause hair loss too.

You need to visit the dermatologist. I had lost some hair and thought it was stress related but it turned out to be my thyroid.

How well do you take care of your hair? If it’s color treated, that can thin your hair out. Also heat styling and even just brushing can lead to breakage and thinning. You might need to see how you can improve your hair care routine. If any breakage is contributing to the thinning, leave-in conditioners could help. 

Aside from that, I’ve always heard that folic acid is good for hair, so you could take a supplement.

I lost half of my hair due to my thyroid. I take a multi, biotin, selenium, fish oil and separate vitamin d2. My multi has d3. 

My hair stopped falling out finally. And it’s growing again. I I wish you luck.

I don’t know what to reccommed for permanent regrowth, but I will say that you could find some realistic clip in extension type fake hair for an immediate quick fix! (A wig would work also, just be careful so it doesn’t look fake or doesn’t match your hair exactly right)

I would get a 3/4 wiglet for hair loss if I had an immediate event coming up. That way it’s your hair in the front but a big volume boost on the sides and back. This is a really common solution, I would ask a good salon near you if they can color match you with good human hair quality wig. 

Also see your dr for testing, take a good multi, folate, bs and ds.

I had a friend whose hair started thinning/falling out a lot, and she couldn’t figure out what the problem was for a while. Her doctors kind of ignored the issue. Finally she realized it was her birth control. Once she made the connection, she googled and found that tons of people were having the same problem. She switched pills and the problem stopped. So just wanted to throw it out there that (assuming your bloodwork is good, your diet is healthy, and it’s not stress related or genetic) you might also want to look at any medicines you’re taking. 

Otherwise, I can’t really speak from personal experience, but my hairstylist tells her clients to take biotin. Also, there’s a supplement called Biosil that’s supposed to be good for hair, skin, nails, and bones. I think it helps your body generate collagen. That said, I agree with PPs that you should see a doctor and rule out underlying issues.

I also vote for biotin. My doctor recommended it after I mentioned I was concerened about hair loss. It took about two months before seeing a difference but after that my hair loss was much reduced. Bonus benefit: my nails are much stronger too!

Hey! So sorry to hear about your hair 🙁 

Last year I had a horrible relapse into my restrictive eating disorder and lost a TON of my hair. I had to cut about 10 inches off because it was just weighing down my thin hair. Cutting it short (like a bob) made it look instantly thicker. Also getting a dietitian and a whole rounded diet made such a big difference with my hair. I found out I was deficient in calcium and vitamin D, which was caused by obvious reasons. Once I started having a glass of 2% milk or higher ever Day my hair started coming back. It’s not perfect (I miss it long!) but it is much better now 🙂

First I would totally agree check your thyroid and get tested for all vitamin levels. I will recommend Nioxin shampoo system to slow the hair loss..it really works. Just google it and look on Amazon.
