    I seem to be losing lots of hair. Has been happening over the last month or two.

    This is fantastic in a way, as I've always had enough hair for a few hundred people, but it doesn't seem to be stopping:eek:

    My hair now looks almost 'normal':cool: Just a bit concerned that it'll just keep falling out.

    I haven't 'dieted' in the last 2.5+ years, and eat healthily enough (I reckon anyway). I'm 52 and would think that age is possibly playing a part?

    It's just that it's only really been happening recently, and it's dropping relatively fast.:eek:

    any ideas what might be going on here?

    Have you had your thyroid checked? Might be worthwhile unexplained hairloss should be checked out. A quick blood test will sort you. Is your BP OK?

    Are you taking a supplement? I take a boots hair and nails one and my barnet is better than pre Lighter life but needs washing more often. The lard fairy smears my head at night and it needs a good wash in the morning! :rotflmao:

    I used to lose a lot of hair, but then I started taking biotin pills recommended by my hair stylist and after a few months of use my hair falling out has subsided. Biotin is great for hair, skin, and nails. I do not go a day without this supplement.
