    Hello

    It's really mystery about my hair loss. I have really good life style like good diet, sleep, exercise, regular health checkups, good job, family etc. No one in my family has this much thin hair. It's so embarrassing for me when my friends tell me do something to your hair or relatives, friends ask me what happen to my beautiful hair. I tried taking different vitamins but they all have some side effects. I have thyroid but all different endocrinologist said it's under control because I take regular medicine.
    I don't use any harsh chemicals, i do oil massage, put onion mask, no hair dryer or salon treatments
    Can someone please suggest tips. Thanks in advance

    Did you know that Thyroid medication can cause hairfall too?

    Drug-Induced Hair Loss

    Did you check your androgen levels? If there are too many androgens then it causes severe hairfall. It’s better to check all hormone levels including Estrogen, DHT , progesterone etc

    Emarald,
    1.Are you under stress? If so, try to keep yourself stress free.Stress induces hair fall no matter what you eat and do.
    2.Make sure to use soft luke warm water for head bath.You can install a shower filter for soft water.
    3.Try this energy drink, it helps. Ayurvedic Home Made Energy Drink For All Ages

    Hi,
    Did you check your ferritin levels and ANA (lupus) test?
    I have severe hairfall for more than an year and I went to different doctors(PCP,OBGYN), dermatologist etc.
    Everyone did lots of blood work and everything was fine. I recently visited a dermatologist who is specialised in Hairloss. She said that ferritin and lupus test are important to check for hairloss. In my case, everything was normal except vitamin D. My vitamin D is very low and I am taking the supplements now. I lost almost 60% of my hair now. I didn't know the reason yet. I am having this problem after I move to US. Did you recently moved to US or any other country?

    Hi,
    How many units of vitamin D did you take? And after how many days did your see the difference in the hair growth? Just to know..I am taking 50000 units of vitamin D per week now as my Dr prescribed that. But still I didn't see any difference in the hair loss.

    I will suggest you to take more protein in your diet. If you take non veg then you can daily have boiled eggs in your breakfast or in veg take sprouts etc. Also use only high brands for your hair. Hopefully it will help.

    Water, hormones, genetics, stress and many more reasons contribute to hairfall. Nothing really seems to help. Consult a hair specialist, he may offer some solution.

    When my sister visited US for 6 months, she lost a lot of hair but she regained the lost hair once she returned to India.
