Unhappy Hair Is Falling Out!! Help!!!

For the past month or two my hair has been falling out like crazy All I wanna do is cry. Honestly if I didn't have really thick hair to start with I might be bald right now! I have boarderline HYPERthyroid, started some meds and no help. I went off birth control and this started around that time as well and now I am back on no help. I have moved and this is also the time that it all started but I am now a LITTLE less stressed and am settled in no help! Any ideas? I just don't know what to do!!!

Re: Hair Is Falling Out!! Help!!!

Well, my hair started to fall out when I was 17. I lost 40 pounds in 2 months and didn't do any exercise. My hair was long so I cut it short. That's how my hair stopped falling out. But I don't know if this method would work on you...

Re: Hair Is Falling Out!! Help!!!

I am wondering if your excess hair shedding is from getting off the birth control pill..when i got off the pill i lost lots of hair.. then you said that you got back on the pill so i am thinking that soon as your hormones settle down your hair will not fall out quite so much..also if your thyroid is not working right that can make your hair fall out also.. My hair is very thin also and any hair shedding is unwanted...
