    Anyone else suffering from thinning hair on SS?

    I knew it was a side effect of the diet but I'm really shocked how much of my hair falls out in a day. I pull hand fulls out when I run my fingers through it :(

    I know it's growing back, I have some short and fuzzy regrowth going on :) but it's still a bit depressing.

    Has anyone got any experiences (especially those lovely stories of it growing back thicker and more lovely than before ;) ) or tips on stimulating regrowth?

    Sorry to hear about your hair loss. I haven't experienced this myself but others who have said it grows back fairly quickly.

    How long have you been doing SS?

    hi,
    as far as i know its a side effect of any diet.. i know a few people who are on various diets who too are losing more hair than normal... i wouldnt worry too much (unless you think its really excessive) and im sure it will get back to normal :)

    I'm not losing hair on CD but a couple of years ago around this time of year my hair started coming out in shedfulls! My flatmate had the same and our shower was a nightmare!

    My hair started falling out after 25 weeks on the diet. Luckily it is quite thick and isn't coming out in clumps or anything but when I wash it you see quite a bit of it disappearing it down the plughole. It has broken off quite badly at the sides but the back still grows really quickly..vv strange. I just try to be a bit more gentle with it and I'm not overly worried.
