HELP! I'm Losing My Hair!!

By March 29, 2006

Follow me on:

I remember the day when I was washing my hair in the shower, and it seemed like fistfuls of hair were coming out. I actually kept a bottle of Drano in the bathroom to unclog the hair in the drain regularly. My brushes looked like living creatures about to run under the bed, and my hair -- well, let's just say my long, usually thick hair could be pulled into a ponytail that was no wider than a pencil!!! Hair loss is, unfortunately, a common -- and, let's face it, horrible!! -- side effect of thyroid disorders, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, and other thyroid conditions. Find out more about how we can combat hair loss now, in this article.

Best treatment I’ve ever used was Androvex. It stopped my hormonal hair loss, I was extremely happy.

I was having an issue with hair shedding with no real medical reason. I tried a product called Amana and in about 2-3 months I had way less hair loss
