    I'm only just starting on SS and am curious to know how common hair loss is, should I be buying head scarves just in case?!

    Oh my, I'm glad to say that hasn't happened to me! It's not something I've noticed is mentioned on the forum too often, so hopefully it won't happen to you. I've had very few side effects from the diet, my main one just being a bit of a lack of energy, and I hope the diet goes well for you too :)

    Well is a relief to know that it's not a given, have heard horror stories of people going bald and am terrified that will happen to me!!

    My hair falls out/breaks loads usually anyway. But I must say since doing SS I have noticed a lot more hair coming out recently when I wash it etc. My boyfriend finds it disturbing but it hasn't made a difference to my hair really because it's so thick anyway.

    loads of my hair fell out, but it's so thick that it's not really noticeable. It's a relief really, made it much more manageable!

    I'm on day 6 today and noticed a lot of it coming out this morning when I washed my hair - mine is really long and thick though so not worrying about it too much yet!

    I have lost lots of hair, i dont wash my hair as much as i used to for fear of the clumps coming out. I have the advantage of having really thick hair so i can get away with losing a bit. I have found that its more noticeable around my hairline at the front, especially by my ears. I tend to wear my hair down a lot to cover it. As others have mentioned tho as quick as it has snapped or fallen out i can see sprouts of regrowth. Will definately need a new hair do when im at target tho as my hair is very long and currently looks layered where ive had breakages etc, saying that, it looks quite a nice hair style for now :)

    That is reassuring thanks for posting. I just find the breakages in my hair most annoying, it breaks and splits and looks dodgy at times but on the flip side its soooo soft and very shiny.

    I had quite a bit of hair falling out shen I started doing the steps up, now I have a relatively lager amount of hair falling out than before I did CD but nothing I can't handle.. thank god.

    It does happen but when it does you should realise it's only temporary...

    bear in mind the time of year also, hair should naturally start to shed, and you always loose more around now, avoid colouring you hair if you are worried, it will come back, probably thicker and healthier xx

    That's a really good article and it does put my mind at rest a bit (after all, I didn't even realise I was losing hair until my hairdresser told me - now I'm paranoid!). I've bought some hair vitamins today, also some silica (as recommended by my CDC) and sent for Rejuvx hair treatment. I'm also going abroad on Saturday, and my hair and nails always grow more in hot countries. I'm hoping that all this will sort my poor hair out! :eek: (Unlike many others posting here, my hair is fine and not thick - so any thinning will show up pretty quickly.)
