    Blimy, washed my hair this morning and clumps were coming out which was scary I have thick hair so it should be ok but a bit frightening! Has anyone else experienced this and do you have any tips. I have been on SS for 4 months and this is the first time it has happened. I am around 12lbs untill BMI 25. Love Bunny xxxxxxxxx

    This has happened to me a couple of times while SSing and my hair has grown back no bother.

    My hair dresser could see the new growth growing.

    I find after showering the plug hole is clogged up......so as my hair is also thick I am not too worried. Also when I brush my hair there is more hair than normal in the brush.

    Once you get to goal and start eating it should all be fine and settle down.

    Me too.
    Started SSing Jan.
    Started moulting End April.
    CDC did warn me that 'it can happen' As soon a she said it I thought 'well that's me for def!.'
    also have reasonably thick hair so not too concerned yet.
    V reassured by Mini's post that it all grows back on resumption of food.

    Can anyone explain the physiolgy behind this?

    This happened to me too after a couple of months on the diet, but dont panic as i dont think it happens to the extent of you having bald patches, just fluffy bits where your regrowth comes through!:)

    Me too!! I have been taking a hair, nail and skin tablet once a day from the beginning just incase, but it has happened anyway - I have always had very thick hair so it's not noticable to anyone else but me.

    I'm a size 12 now and not an 18 so its a small price to pay!! Afterall, it will grow back as thick as before and it's not like I have had to swap my hairbrush for a duster :eek:

    My hair has been falling out for about 3 months now, I did have rather long hair down my back so the hair loss was quite scary, but I got it cut real short a couple of weeks ago and now the hair loss doesnt seem so bad :D

    This doesnt really bother me as my hair is so thick anyway that you cant tell ive lost any.
