  • are you pregnant? I lost alot of hair during this time ALOT!! If not pregnant look into alepecia(SP?) that causes moderate to severe hair loss

  • Mine gets thinner if I dont eat enough protein....Stress can bring it on too, as well as wearing a ponytail too often.

  • My daughter's hair was falling out. It turned out her thyroid was underactive, and that can make hair fall out. I don't have insurance either, but I have to get my thryroid checked. It's only about $11 every 6 weeks for the blood test at the clinic. Find one. Get it checked. Her thyroid is regular now and her hair is growing back in. She had gigantic bald spots. I hope you fix it before you get gigantic bald spots too.

  • note on previous post: Alopecia doesn't cause hair loss. It means hair loss. It describes the hair loss you have. Nobody knows what causes alopecia, so they don't know how to fix it.
