    I was wondering this too.
    I've always had thick hair and now I'm too losing it by the handful and I've actually got some patches where my hair is really thinning out.

    yep. it's doing my head in. I've read tho that it can be down to anemia so it might be worth stocking up on iron rich foods just in case that helps a bit.

    I used to pull out a lot of hair when I was brushing it and my bath would be lined with balls of hair when I was washing it. I would find strands all over the place. Thankfully it's stopped a bit now!

    Mine's just starting to fall out now:hissy:. You forget how bad it gets, clogging the plughole and the hoover:dohh:. My daughter keeps pulling it all off the back of my tops (bless her, she's only 6)


    It does die down but it can take months. It is surprising that we don't end up bald. The hair can thin and can even be slightly patchy but it all grows back again....at least it has for me everytime:rofl:
