Hair Loss

Hair Loss

My hair has been falling out since May 3. It started falling out after my 10 day stay in the hospital for a blood clot caused from having COVID-19. Between the 2, I was in bed for 40 days. The virus wiped out my immune system along with my vitamin and minerals, I’m also anemic. My doctor said my hair may keep falling out for several months. She said it’s a combination of the stress of having COVID, the blood clot, a 10 day hospital stay and being anemic. She recommended I start taking biotin but… read more

I have been experiencing hair loss in the past 5 years. More specifically my hairline has been receding and in general lots of hair comes out when washing or brushing. To my surprise it looks like the hair loss is not permanent! I discovered lots of baby hair and new hair grow lately. I lost huge chunks right after pregnancy , hormone related. It came back. At this time might be due to menopause.

I am a cosmetologist and nurse. Definitely get your thyroid and hormone levels checked. They have supplements and formulas like ROGAINE, that stimulates hair growth. Worth a try.

My hair has been falling out super bad too. I went to a dermatologist and had a scalp biopsy. It came back as AlopecIa and TE - stress related. I had that much too fall out. Stop looking at it and stay positive. I now take Biotin, and Mininoxinol but in a pill form. Seems to be helping. Also scalp massage that does not include the hair. Ur scalp should be relaxed and not tight, it should easily move around. Also, do not brush your hair when it’s wet. Wait until it’s pretty much dry. Mine frizzes but I use a light oil by L’Oréal that helps w/that. I also stopped blow drying unless I have to really hurry. I only put a “warm” curling iron on my bangs to get them out of my way. I curl my hair only for special occasions. A silk pillow case also helps but wash it by hand and do not dry it in the dryer. I learned my lesson. Sometimes I put my hair in a light braid at night so it doesn’t get all tangled and I have to deal w/it in the morning.
I hope some of this helps u. There is light at the end of the tunnel.
Yes, iron can make u extremely constipated. My doc recommended a chewable one. I have yet to buy them. I try to eat a lot of spinach. I use extra virgin olive oil on it and himilayan salt on everything. Lots of minerals. Don’t worry about weight w/ the Extra Virgin Olive oil. It will not make u gain weight and will help ur hair and skin. Good luck!❤️
