Unhappy hair stopped falling out, will it grow back?

my hair fell out alot about 1.5 yrs ago while i was on a high dose of synthroid and i was also breastfeeding. i had palpitations too. now that my dose has finally been fixed (and i switched to armour) my hair stopped falling out but its not growing back. when i wear a ponytail you can see my scalp around my ears and temples. its ugly. and i have to wear my hair back everyday at work. its embarressing. im just wondering if its like male pattern baldness that doesnt grow back, just gets worse? please talk to me

Re: hair stopped falling out, will it grow back?

How long has it been since it stopped falling? If it's recently, start watching for new growth at scalp level. Depending on how fast your hair grows, it will take some time to fill in again. Hair grows about 1/2 inch per month once it breaks through the scalp, and it won't appear thicker till it achieves some length.
