Hairy woes :-((

One thing that really gives me nightmares these days is, believe it or not, my hair. Something I never thought I would be ruing about until about four years ago :-((.. How I wish I can get back to those good old days.. earlier I used to have those good hair days and bad hair days.. Now.. only lose hair days :-((((...

Worse still, whenever I meet any old acquaintances or friends of mine, the question...... "aaaaaawww dear!! whatz with your hair" spirals me back into my seemingly neverending depressive thoughts related to already-damaged so-called "presentable looks..." aaargghhh... I never thought I would be conscious about the way I looked, least of all my hair... Amma was very right when she used to say "you will realize the value only when you lose it!" No matter what I do, the N number of visits to the dermatologist and the regular physician, popping up multivitamins and iron pills, being on a specified diet of lots of greens and fruit, applying oil, conditioning with henna and head massages... nothing, nothing really seems to help. Each time I brush my hair, I wonder what is left on the head when I see everything in the comb... boooooooooooooooohoooooooooooooooo...

Phase 1 (Four Years Ago)..
Never used to bother much, no attention, no care..
Phase 2 (Three Years Ago)
Notice thinning, but not really bothered..
Phase 3 (Two Years Ago)
Going for a shorter haircut so that it does not look too thin.
Phase 4 (One Year Ago)
Hairfall at an alarming rate, meet the doc, follow all the tips given by everyone and anyone, hoping what goes comes around :-(.
Current Phase (Today, at this very moment)
Forget about whatz gone, praying that at least I retain what is left....

Caps' tips on hair care... got to check out yet again.. and as T-DNA would say I really would need a mega-miracle to retain whatever is left.. boohooo.. Doc says dont pay a lot of attention to it, stress and depression do this to you at times, but how can I NOT pay attention.. 'cos half my depression is due to the mounting medical bills!!!!

Stress affects hair. Nothing else. So chillax n have a ball no matter what. I know, easier said than done :)

I used to have this problem too & Iwas trying all sorts of hair care & nothing was actually working on me. Until I found out that I was anaemic & my hb count was low. Hence I started having iron tablets, spinach, lentils & avocados & thankfully its much better now (tho not as much as b4). So get a good check up done.

Also try to use a wooden comb (as thats supposed to promote / stimulate the hair growth) & avoid all artificial things like conditioners etc which r high in chemicals & maybe ur hair is getting sensitive to the same.

Sush, I am also in the same line. Damn serious now. Now, following the tips of mine. :)). Plus planning to stop the usage of shampoos soon and go for oil massage. Getting some Shikakai(All natural herbs n no chemicals) mix over here. Need to be grinded. Will shampoo with it and see the difference. Went for a hair cut, just now. Hope, we'll atleast have this hair on our scalp.:)). Don't worry. N relax.

I am going through a similar phase. Well, calling it a phase is optmisitic, because I won't go back to how I was ever. So it's more like a transition. Whenever I see my old and new pics side by side, they look like "Before and after" pictures of Rogaine, in reverse order, of course :)

It can happen due to over workload and stress. ALso check if you have thyroid.

sounds like you are under stress..get the hormones checked

I feel your pain.
I don't know about this whole stress thing - I am not stressed at all, in fact, I am enjoying life at the most, and yet, mine is also falling at an alarming rate.
MIL claims it is because I don't oil it everyday and don't take regular oil baths. She is most likely right - I better get serious. Oh, and the shampoo thing is true - most are too strong. Pay big bucks to become bald. :(
I have switched to meera herbal powder these days.
