I was at the hairdresser today asking questions about hair loss because I just hit 5 months on ideal protein and am noticing LOTS of hair in the shower drain.
She said first of all humans shed more hair in the winter - they are opposite of animals - and while I'm certainly seeing lots of hair in the drain it is OK/normal with the diet and it being winter
She also said that there is new hair growth starting all over my head - stubby little new hairs that are not old broken hairs but new growth. Which means hair is growing back. I must say this is a relief because I was starting to really panic.
She also said to stop worrying about it because her doctor told her that stress hormones accelerate hair loss.
I thought I would share because I know a lot of us are concerned about this.
