My hair seems to be falling out everywhere. Any tips to help it stop?
TIA.

Watching with interest as I have the same problem, and have had on and off for years. I try not to brush mine too often, especially after washing. Still have loads come out during washing though sad

Mines all day long, and only brush my hair quickly on a morning. I'm finding it all over the place, even when I have had my hair tied up my clothes are covered. Thinking of a name change to something Yeti orientated. wink

Mine the same. I don't brush it now. Just comb after conditioning to get most of it out then I leave it alone. It's still all over the house though, and has broken the hoover brushbar hmm

Guys, use biotin...seven quid....Amazon...hellped me postnatally

How are your iron levels? I lose far less hair now my anaemia is fixed.

Biotin looks interesting. Which one do you use, FluffyCubs? It doesn't contain iron, so might try a separate supplement for that, Remus. Come to think of it, I probably don't get enough iron.

I know what you mean, M00. I generally avoid wearing black now hmm

I had this and it turned out to be because I was developing psoriasis on my scalp. Thankfully it's stopped and my hair is firmly planted on my head now but absolutely nothing helped at the time. I just had to hoover a lot confused

Sorry I can't help, but you aren't alone!

Definitely consider your iron levels. DD lost loads of hair when she was anaemic and it's been very difficult to get her iron levels back up to where they ought to be.

I have some iron suppliments left from when I was pregnant. Might have a hunt for them.

How old is your baby?

We had a thread about this last week (I'm a regular, have had to make a new account due to password difficulty), it's probably down a page or 2 now. Lots of tips but in general, it's very normal until baby is 1, some of us just suffer more than others sad
