I have just been to have my hair trimmed and had a different hairdresser from usual this time. He was just combing through and immediately asked if I was on any medication! I said yes and asked him why he was asking and asked him to guess. He fished for clues for a while then seemed to know that I was on steroids! I know my hair has been thinning for a while - both in the number of hairs and the thickness of each - so this must be the reason according to him! I need to touch up the greys really, but worry that this will damage what hair I have even more. I just hope I can come off the steroids soon and that the biologic I have just started doesn't have the same effect.
