Sorry to say that this is something you're just going to have to wait out. Look up telogen effluvium. It's common after a stressful event like surgery or change in your nutrition. It's part of the normal hair cycle and will stop.

I've done (and still do) the Vitamins and Hair loss shampoos. I've struggled with fine, thin (and thinning) hair that is prone to breakage for years and it feels like a daily battle. The things I found most effective were hair OILS with scalp massage. I started with a product called "Hair Envy". Effective, but expensive. I currently do a combo of what I have left of the Hair Envy and a couple of drops of CBD oil. I alternate that with an Ayurvedic hair revitalizer oil and may even do a coconut oil deep conditioning treatment once in a while. These make my hair soft and strong, but it DOES NOT make it noticeably thicker/fuller.

Sadly I've been suffering from Hair loss for a while, as i have a thyroid problem which i was told could take minimum of a year of the medication to start getting better. I was diagnosed Feb 2019.

I haven't had hair loss yet but if i do, i know i wont deal with it very well 😪

MsMocie I can relate to a T right down to cutting my own hair in a similar state of mind last month...It’s seriously distressing to lose so much hair so fast and seemingly no end in sight, I broke down and bought a “hairpiece” wig, which was crazy expensive for a small amount of human hair...My Hair loss happened about 4-5 months post opp. I have a lot of baby hair which is encouraging I am using the Keranique Shampoo and Conditioner right now but not any of the Hair growth chemicals as I’m hoping I won’t ever need it...the Keranique shampoo and conditioner is blah in my opinion it smells too pharmaceutical and I really don’t have an opinion yet on whether it works or not, I bought some hair gummies too as I’m obviously lacking Vitamins because my nails are weak and brittle too which wasn’t a problem before either...so in a span of a few months I’ve become preoccupied with manicures and hair just to maintain an acceptable level of self esteem...sigh....I also turn 40 next week as if I need my $#!! to go to heck now, not to mention my complexion is wack...never had acne, always use good products and suddenly I’ve had breakouts...but life is weird for us all right now isn’t it?? Take care

I'm in the same boat. Five months out and my hair is falling out like crazy despite taking Biotin and an arrary of other Vitamins. My thick, beautiful hair, is now thin. Thankfully, no bald spots. I've read that at 6 months it subsides for most people, and I sure hope that's the case. Reading CannonRoar's post scares the beegeebeezies out of me!

Just a note, my nails are better than they have been my entire life.
