    The other day my sister mentioned to me how thin my hair has gotten. I used to have such thick hair that it was difficult to get it into a ponytail and took 2 whole boxes of hairdye to get it done right. Now its really thinned out and I'm lacking some of the volume I used to get. Am I going bald? Should I worry that its not just thinning out?

    I moved out of my moms house a little over a year ago. I know I dont eat balanced meals at all with a severe lack of meat products/protien in my daily diet. Can this be a cause? Should there be an emphasis on certain vitamins to regain my hairs original thickness and volume?

    please advise!!! :x:

    My gf's sister briefly suffered from alopecia areata. Which is spot balding. She went to see a dermatologist and had some treatment. Is it that?
    Even if it isn't, I'd still suggest you see a dermatoligist.

    i've read that lack of protein can be a big cause of hair loss... whether it's permanent or not I don't recall.


    Just start eating better and exercise, I've never heard of a 20 year old woman going bald. You're most likely paranoid anyway because you would have noticed before your sister.


    And as for your hair going into a ponytail or needing more dye before, maybe you used different cleaning products or something. I notice if I don't shampoo my hair for a couple days (gives it that faggy greasy look so I can do a fohawk and other trendy shit) it takes like 4x more shampoo to be able to work through my hair than it normally takes. Hair will take liquids differently depending on how dry or greasy it is, the same goes for tying it back. If it's stiff and dry it will probably be harder to tie back but if it's moist and flexibile it probably takes little or nothing.

    maybe you've dyed it too many times and damaged your hair.

    Stress can cause hairloss and give you patches. I suggest you eat your protein as its needed by the body for healthy hair and nails. You can buy supplements. Otherwise for quicker results you can get oils I personally used them worked for me.

    most often the cause for hair loss in healthy young women is drastically low bodyfat.

    I'm pretty sure its not drastically low body fat. however, I've lost about 55ish pounds in the past year. I eat pretty much what I want and I dont really have an excercise regimen. mebbe this issue is much bigger than I had orginally thought??

    will try protien/vitamin supplements and see a doctor.

    thanks a million!

    ummmm :ugh:

    call me crazy, but if you haven't drastically changed your lifestyle and are eating whatever you want and not working out yet manage to lose 55lbs in a year....yeah id say there's something much bigger going on than just some minor hair loss.

    GNC has a daily vitamin complex called skin, nails and hair.
    Biotin I hear is good for hair loss. according to wikipedia:
    Biotin supplements are often recommended as a natural product to counteract the problem of hair loss in both children and adults. There are, however, no studies that show any benefit in any case where the subject is not actually biotin deficient. The signs and symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss which progresses in severity to include loss of eye lashes and eye brows in severely deficient subjects. Some shampoos are available that contain biotin, but it is doubtful whether they would have any useful effect, as biotin is not absorbed well through the skin.


    But definitely get a full work up from a doctor, they would know best. good luck.

    could be stress, the fact that you dye your hair or it could even be a hormonal imbalance

    check with your doctor
