  • seek a doctor you may have a form of alopecia, and if you seek a doctor they may be able to treat it with shots.

    Ones the follicle closes up, your hair can't grow back.. so definitely seek a dr.

  • Sorry - nothing you can do. It happened to me too. My hair started coming back around the 8 month mark - maybe 7. I hope it does for you too!

  • Oh my goodness, Sorry this is happening. Maybe go see a dermatologist. Your hormones might be all out of wack and it may be temporary.

  • How long ago did you deliver? My hard is thin and damaged too. However when I was pregnant, it got super thick. I was like yay!!!! Well that was short lived because about 3 months after I had my son, it started falling out like CRAZY! I mean like chunks in the shower, hair on EVERYTHING. And that continued for about 2 months. I seriously thought I was going to go bald too but I didn't. Every day you shed hair normally. Well when you are pregnant, you don't shed as much as you normally do, but once you deliver, all that hair that didn't fall out when you were pregnant, starts to come out all at once. You won't go bald I promise. This was all told to me by my doctor who I called in a panic BTW.

  • How old is your LO? Around the 3 month mark your hair will start to fall out after NOT falling out during your pregnancy. Even my dh was worried when he saw how much I was throwing away after a shower!! It was crazy! My doc reassured me that there is nothing you can do and it is totally normal. GL momma!!

  • I had to read this because you said your hair was falling off and I wondered wth that meant lol. In response to the actual question, I think taking prenatal or a multi vitamin every day should help.

  • I use Rogaine well not that brand I use the Walmart brand I have very thin hair on top especialllyit helps me but once you start you have to keep using it bc you stop all the hair that was staying on your would all come off. And the little hairs that grow back are not a lot but hey but it does work Also try not to wash your too often. Maybe like very other day you need to keep them oils in the hair sometimes those oils do help keep hair pretty. Try massaging your scalp so you the scalp kind of tingly and start making the oil to come
    out. Keep doing this all will turn out alright GL
