Losing hair
« on: March 15, 2019, 04:35:17 am »
Are you in your mid 50's and losing your hair? I have lost a lot of hair and my hair still sheds, although it is growing as well. I cannot apply any heat to it so I wear hats and wigs and wash, condition and moisturize it weekly.

My hair started coming out really bad and I thought it was because of a new medication I was on, turns out my iron had gotten really low. The Doc. put me on iron pills and it has helped a little. I don't wash it as often either.

My mother had thin, straight hair and my Dad had thick, curly hair.  Fortunately I got my Dads hair. :)  So at 57 it still looks very good.

I have thin hair and have always shed like crazy.  I was on a prolonged prednisone rx for lupus, and I looked like I had gone through chemo.  It grew back, but now I'm always stressed out if I lose a few more strands than usual.

I have been blessed with a fairly well covered head of hair (even at fifty five going on fifty six in a month). I have thinning spot on top of my head but never really see it and honest people have told me that it is not noticeable. I am not really a vain person (which drives my wife nuts). I generally do not shower on the weekend or if I am working at home, wear shorts and t-shirts year round and live in old tennis/running shoes. Bums generally don't hit me up for cash because I look worse off than them (I am also a bit imposing size wise). I get my hair cut whenever it starts requiring a lot of product to keep it in place. I f loss of hair were a concern of mine I would just shave it all off and resign to shaving my head every three weeks or so. Shaved heads seem to be the craze these days so I guess my kids would think I was cool.

Ugghh I am currently going through post partum hair loss. It is horrible. They say it starts about 3 months after giving birth and it definitely did! Luckily I have a lot of hair.

  :clover:   :peace:     :clover:   I tend to get new growth of hair, I try not to wash it everyday, but closer to every other day. This way it doesn't dry out as fast. If I dye my hair, the dye takes a toll on my hair a bit though.  :clover:     :peace:    :clover:

I would think your hats and wigs would not be doing your hair any favors, but yes I seem to shed at certain times of the year more then others

I had an issue with my hair a few years ago when I had a serious health crisis. Medication also was horrible on my hair and skin.  I currently do not have an issue with my hair or skin now. I put coconut oil in my hair before I shampoo and I use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner after that. Once I get out of the shower and towel dry my hair I put real Aloe Vera in my hair from a plant. I currently have long beautiful hair today.

Yes - I'm afraid it happens with age and hormone change!  Those with thick hair are happy and those of us with thin hair are not.  So what are we to do??????? :-\
