I think im going to have to shave my head. can you help me find a wig to wear till it all grows back
I had hair loss and had loads of blood tests etc - was hoping it was thyroid but no! It was a chronic urine infection. Dermatologist sent me to dentist and gynae as hair loss can be a result of an infection anywhere in teh body.
I'd also say prob the thyroid - get it treated, it grows back fast. But shampoo CAN definitely cause hair loss. My mother was advised to stop using Pantene for this very reason, and I know of two other people who say the same thing about pantene (and one of them still has thin hair several years on) - thank God for anonymity, I'd probably get sued otherwise. it's a true story, though!
My SIL had this for years and found it deeply distressing (began in her 20's). She saw top people in London for years and finally found out it was the something in the contraceptive pill that caused her hair loss
