Re: Eck!

I've been using it for years and I've got a thick head of hair. Are you overweight? Sometimes this can cause it believe it or not. Stress can also cause hair to fall out as various other illnesses. Certain medications can cause this as well.
If you are loosing large amounts and your hair is actually thinning I'd suggest you see a doctor to make sure nothing is medically wrong.

Re: Eck!

It is possible I'd definately talk to your doctor about it to see what they think just in case. If not then you should have some blood work done to rule out thyroid problems and a few other issues that cause hair loss.
Again if it is large amounts thats not normal, but hair falling out daily is normal for everyone

Re: Eck!

Do you drink much water? I do know that early balding in men at least often is related to dehydration. Up your water intake.

I also wonder if thyroid is involved. Often thinning hair is related to thyroid problems.
