I've lost 50 lbs. since June. Now I'm losing my hair! I went for a checkup on Monday and my doctor agreed the excess shedding is probably due to the weight loss since I'm not premenopausal and my scalp looked ok. My blood work all came back normal. She said it would calm down once I met my goal weight.
But I'm losing sooo much and it's really depressing. I have super long hair, so I'm talking about handfuls a day. I have 20 lbs. more to lose and I'm afraid I'll be bald by then! Besides drinking enough water, eating protein, and vitamins, is there anything I can do to slow it down? And, more importantly, will it all grow back?
