Did your hair thin as you got older?

I'm 29 and my hair has been gradually thinning since college. It's about half as thick as it used to be and I still lose a lot in the shower every time I wash it!

  • Yes. My hair has always been very thick, but it's gotten thinner. My poor sister has baby fine thin hair, and now that hers is thinning, it's very noticable. We always tease that I got the hair, but she got the boobs!

  • No I'm 43 & my hair has not thinned at all. Just got some grays so I color. You may want to have your Thyroid checked. A Thyroid problem will cause your hair to thin. Also some Blood Pressure Meds can cause hair loss.

  • My hair is getting thinner every day! My hair got darker and started getting thinner when I had my son.
