Re: Why is my hair so thin?

Have you had your thyroid, iron or Vitamin D levels checked recently? It could be due to a deficiency of some kind. Have you been under any sort of stress as of late? Any new medication that you've started taking?

You could start taking some Bioton and Beta Carotene. If you've got oily hair, you might want to try a different shampoo...one that has zinc or Seabuckthorn in it.

I've noticed that my hair has really thinned out over the last month and will be getting my thyroid levels checked (I suffer from Hypothyroidism). I also started taking a new medication for depression that might be the culprit. But...while I wait to get the blood tests done, I'm taking Biotin and have just ordered some shampoo with Seabuckthorn in it to help with my scalp (I too have oily hair and I sometimes get scabs on my scalp that might be as a result of oil buildup).
