  • Try Nioxin hair products- shampoo and conditioner. They are vitamin packed and designed to help with thinning hair.

  • when i stress out i lose a lot of hair. nothing helps that but to de-stress. maybe you could do some self-reflection and see if there are ways to eliminate stress in your life

  • stress, did you have a baby recently? I had post partum hair loss with both kids which thinned my hair out alot too.

  • Did you recently have a baby? I lost so much hair after I had my daughter. It just broke off and was a terrible mess for about 1 1/2 years!

  • Thinning hair is one of the first signs of an under active thyroid

  • I just had my thyroid checked for the same thing and they said it was fine but I know our adrenal gland can mask thyroid problems, too.

  • Thyroid problem...possibly.

    You can try really good hair extensions..I am actually wearing some with my straight hair in my photos (but only because I had 18 inches, and thinned mine out), and chopped it a few inches..and wanted 20 have clip ons can email me for the best brands if you want. I ordered some online...and they are just gorgeous!!! :D
