Week 9. Hello hair loss. More stress!👎 I've lost at least 5 kg💪. I eat 1400-1500 calories a day and go cycling 4 hours a week. I used to take multivitamins occasionally. I've realized that I need to take it daily, because my hair is shedding, thinning and don't look good. Has anyone else had the same problem? Seasonal hair loss, telogen effluvium or AGA...Heeeelp(((

Congrats on the weight loss! I have the same issue with my hair but find it gets better if I take a DHT blocker and extra Biotin. Most multivitamins are useless unless you take them with a bit of fat so make sure to eat an egg or teaspoon of olive oil (I know, I know) with your vitamins.

Hello notbulletproof74, thank you for replying to the aid of Leyla :)

I just wondered if you are interested in joining this forum or if you are just visiting? Either way, you are very welcome.

My hair loss was really bad at the end of last year (menopause/stress/ other women's problems). My GP prescribed Regain mousse to apply to my scalp on a night and it does seem to be helping.

Hope you get it sorted!

My hair is longer - no cut during lockdown so I suppose there is double in the sink. Glucosamine helps me . Ensure you eat a lot of raw veg /salads . I have a handful of unsalted almonds daily but this mirrors my fright about my hair but it doesn’t seem to be thinner . I would review after a good haircut

Hi and welcome, Leya1 :)

I wonder if you've ever had your thyroid function tested, as weight gain and hair loss are two common symptoms? You may want to join the Thyroid UK forum too, as they are very knowledgeable about such matters healthunlocked.com/thyroiduk

Hi Leya1! I have hair loss that comes and goes if my levels of some essential vits/minerals get too low. I get a blood test about once a year to check my levels - Vit D deficiency is what seems to cause my hair loss. My hair loss stops if I'm living in a hot sunny country, and stops when I take my Vit D supplements the doctor advised. Hope you get to the bottom of it xx
