Why do people lose hair? Any stories out there that might help others?
I lose my hair when my thyroid is "off", when TSH is high. But STRESS over a week (from personal experience) will make my hair fall out ... which effects my hair more than anything. I know it is stress because it has happened more than once. When I get home from where I was, got TSH done and it was fine. My food intake etc didn't change. I was careful with brushing it too much. etc. The ONE thing that changed though was my stress level. After about a week home my hair started getting thicker. It happens every time I go away. Has anyone had this kind of hair thinning/falling out/loss related to stress? It doesnt happen after one day; it all adds up.
I eat protein rich foods, some of all of the foods mentioned on TV, with vitamin C that absorbs a lot of things. Any suggestions from anyone who's hair just falls out under stressful circumstances that last more than a few days? What should I NOT do, to prevent it from falling out. Today's show was talking about something about going to the hairdresser (missed that part) and how that can effect your hair, but I dont get my hair done; it is straight, so I dont worry about going there.
