I am in my early 40's . My mom has had thinning hair for the past 20yrs and it's scary thin now. She's in her late 70's. I have always had fine hair but I had a lot!

My hair was falling out like CRAZ ... Show Full Comment

I had a hemithyroidetomy 6 months ago, and two months ago I noticed that I was losing huge clumps of hair every time I brushed or washed my hair. I was literally shedding all day! I took Biotin (2500mg) once per day for a month, then increased to two pills 2 weeks ago. I've noticed a lot less hair loss, but no new regrowth. I have to cut down to one pill per day because of terrible heartburn!

I have thin hair to begin with, and at age 50 it suddenly became brittle and I began losing a lot of hair in my comb every day and seeing more of my scalp. So I began biotin at 5000 mcg a day. I didn't notice any change until 3 or 4 weeks, but then the hair in my comb became much less, and my hair became quite shiny and healthy again. I am also seeing new short hairs growing in my thin spots, ... Show Full Comment
