I've read where people suffer hair loss with this, and I know that my brush is always full of hair.....but wondering if anyone has noticed that the quality/condition of their hair is different. Especially when my hair is wet when I've finished washing it, it just feels very icky, kind of like it didn't get clean. It shampoo's up well and rinses well, but just doesn't feel clean. After it dries, it seems to be OK.
If you're a woman who is post-menopausal, then hormonal changes are likely to be the cause of changes in hair quality (and quantity) more than any auto-immune condition. Lots of women in their 50s lose hair and find that it's much more brittle and dry than when they were in the 30s. I ended up switching to an expensive shampoo and conditioner made for women with thinning hair.
Oh boy. Can I relate to hair problems. I began noticing a change in my hair texture and quality several years ago. Then last Dec I began to notice it falling out. A lot. I was sent to a dermatologist and was given injections in my scalp, it helped some but worsened after I had shingles and a bladder infection. Last week I went to see a hair loss specialist and he said that while some of the loss could be age/menopause related he feels that it is mostly due to my illness and the stress of the illness itself. He has me using Rogaine twice a day and assures me I am not going bald. I also went to see a very well respected acupuncturist (he is licensed in both Eastern and Western medicine and he says that my kidneys and liver are beginning to be affected and that is why I am losing hair. So I am using the rogaine and continuing with acupuncture and I will see... oddly, since I have lost so much hair I am finding that what is left is looking shiny and healthy again and the new growth has a big wave in it. Not sure what to think. I am lucky that I had very thick hair to start with.
