I have really really … had really thick hair. I noticed the same thing too, tons of it falling out, I mean I had a ton fall out all the time but this was ridiculous. I went to the Gyno and they ran some blood tests. I have a problem with my thyroid, so I’m on meds for that and prenatal vitamins. It doesn’t seem to be falling out quite as much but it takes few months for it to all straighten out.

Your hair will grow and shed in cycles of roughly three months naturally.

Hair also goes through stages of growth and shedding (anagen, catagen telogen phases), so you might be experiencing a phase of that. You can read more about them online.

Fish oil is also good for hair growth…and your heart.

If you’re interested in certain foods that will give you growth, look for items high in B-vitamins, especially Biotin. Really, a well-balanced diet is what’s going to aid in hair growth. Retention is another matter.

My hair does the same thing and I have extremely thick hair from what I have been told this is very normal. A person loses on average 200 Plus hairs a day and with thick hair is much more than that

I don’t wash my hair with soap. It’s helped out a lot. If I get grease build up, I wash an egg through it, but other than that, my body has readjusted since I quit using shampoo and naturally keeps my hair looking great (and tangle free!!!)

A multi vitamin can never hurt. I also have a very sensitive stomach, some vitamins will make me vomit even if I take them with food. I have found the Walgreens brand multiple vitamins have absolutely no impact on my stomach whatsoever so I can take them in the morning even without food. I’m taking biotin and calcium too and it’s had a great impact on my hair and nails. I’ve almost stopped biting my nails, they’re long and very strong. It’s great.

I have very, very thick hair and naturally wavy. Mine has been doing the same exact thing, I’ve noticed it more and more over this past year. Vitamins make me really sick too, I’m encouraged to hear about the Walgreen’s brand and will certainly give them a try!

I have pretty healthy hair, and I’d say its from taking my multivitamin each day, and I have a protein shake each day. Protien is what will make your hair, nails and skin healthier.

My best friend who is a premier hairdresser in SF just told me the same thing about prenatal vitamins!
