I'm 22 years old, in march of 07 I had a baby, and ever since my hair has been falling out in fist full. I am worried about my hair. it is thining even though I use thickening shampoos and products. I take vitmins and use warm oils in my hair to try to help it but it still falls out. I cant seem to fix it. its strong and has no split ends, its not dry or oily, all in all it is healthy, but its falling out at the roots. I have in the past dyed my hair but I havening in over a year, I had a salon prem my hair 8 months ago and the perm fell out the next day, I did not wash it or get it wet at all, it just fell out and would not crul, so I let it be. but it still falls out. I am scared I will lose my hair, any ideas on how to save it?

Go see your Dr. right away~ after my first baby I developed a post pregnancy case of hypothyroidism and the hair loss was my biggest symptom.. it was just a simple blood test

Hope you can get to the bottom of your problem smile

I have had my thyroid checked out and there is nothing wrong with it, could there be something else wrong?

Stress and hormones cause a lot of things to go wrong with hair. It is not uncommon post-pregnancy to lose some hair.

I would seek out your Dr. and consult with them on what may be the cause of the hair loss.

It could be stress, hormones, alopecia, a fungus or bacteria, etc etc etc.

I hope you find out something soon.

Many young women have hair loss problems. If you have had your thyroid checked, it is most likely hormonal.

My daughter had a similar problem after her first baby was born. It would come back and then start falling out again. It continued after the second pregnancy. She is using the Nioxin 3 part system and will probably always use it. Her hair stopped falling out and has remained fairly thick(not as thick as when she was a teenager) and healthy. Nioxin deals with hormonal fluctuations and scalp health. I suggest taking the Nioxin Recharging Complex multiple vitamins too. They are made especially for hair, skin and nails.

hello MrsSJames,
I'm sorry to hear about your condition. I'm 23 and I suffer from alopecia almost 6 years now. I haven't find a cure that will work for me but I've found a product that really helps cover the problem. It's name is "Toppik. I hope it helps you until you are cured.
I really hope you can find a cure for this ( i hope I can find a cure for my condition too!)
best of luck!

Falling of hair after you have a baby is common. After you give birth, your estrogen levels take a tumble and a lot more hair follicles enter the resting stage. So to prevent hair fall it's good to take vitamins, protein and iron rich diet, consumption of raw vegetables and fruits, salads and green leafy vegetables.
