I have recently started shedding profusely and it won't stop! I am afraid I am going to go bald soon. Thank God I have very thick hair because I swear you could make a wig out of all of it that has already fallen out. I didn't know what the heck was causing it at first. I changed shampoo and conditioners and stopped straightening it thinking that perhaps I was being too harsh with it and it didn't help. A friend of mine had a dr. appt the other day and she said in a magazine in the waiting room she read an article about new moms losing some of their hair because their estrogen levels are evening out now that they are no longer pregnant. Does anyone have any more info or personal experiences with this? Or am I the only balding new mom in the world?
