  • I know that stress can cause hair loss. Are you stressed? The stress over your hair falling out may actually make it worse! I'm not sure what else could cause it. Talk to your doctor AND a hair stylist. With the help of both maybe you can get it to stop. I know it must be hard not to stress about it. I wish you the best.

  • You might also be having thyroid problems. A simple blood test by your Dr. can determine if that is the problem. I know after my DS was born, my hair was falling out, I was nervous and jittery, couldn't sleep (on top of night time feedings, I was screwed), felt awful all the time. Turned out my thyroid was overactive. The up side was I lost the baby weight quickly...too quickly.
