My hair started falling out excessively in April. At this point I feel like I should be bald. What are your follicles doing at this point?

Re: Whose hair is still falling out?

  • I have to clean out the drain after every shower. It's a miracle I still have hair on my head.

  • I've started an experiment to see how much hair builds up on the shower drain before my husband says something. :-\"

  • Remember that movie The Craft? And they curse the popular girl with hair loss and the other popular girls find her sitting on the floor of the shower with handfuls of hair? 

    That's what I feel like. 

    That's how I feel i looked last night after dyeing my hair. The normal shedding, on top of the chemicals made for lots and lots of hair loss.

  • I can't believe I'm not bald yet either.
  • I'm another one that is shocked that I'm not bald. I had a lot fall out from the front of my head and it is starting to grow back and it looks like I had shaved it. I have these little short hairs on the front of my head. I can't even put it in a pony tail without seeing balding/thinned out spots. :(

    My hair has thinned out so bad I want to cry. My hairline has receeded in some places and I look ridiculous if I put it in a pony tail. It is finally starting to come back in now though. I heard that around 4-6 months is the peak and most have their pre-pregnancy hair back by baby's first birthday so here's hoping!! I'm sick of cleaning my hair from everywhere all of the time and I miss my nice thick hair.


  • SS. Mine hasn't fallen out, but I'm still an EBFer so it's possible that it will start when he weans.


  • So, so much hair loss. I clean the drain after every shower. I'm lucky that I've always had super thick hair so the hair loss isn't noticable to anyone but me. Well me and the vacuum I have to use every day between the cat, dog, and me.

  • I'm EBF also but it has completely fallen out around my hairline (just like my hair stylist said it would...) I can't pull my hair back at all because it is like a cm long trying to grow back in. So horrible looking. Thank god for bangs.
  • My hair is super thick and fairly long and it's so annoying. It's not just the shower drain, it's everywhere! I'm constantly vacuuming. Luckily it seems like there's no hair loss or thinning. I always have my hair in a sock bun since that seems to hold the loose strands in until I am ready to wash it.
  • I'm so glad I'm not the only one here! I was fine until about two weeks ago and my hair has now gone to crap! It's freaking me out! I'm trying to double vitamin intake and eat tons of fruit and veggies hoping this will help

    THIS! I dont mind so much because I have thick hair, but my drains, vacuum and carpet is definitely covered with hair.

  • I chose SS. I was losing handfuls but it was due to my thyroid med dosage needing to be adjusted. Things are normal now.

    Hair is everywhere. Since the beginning and has not slowed down and I'm EBF. I now try to collect it before it hits the drain in the shower because I had to use a whole bottle of liquid plumber to unclog it about two months ago. I am constantly finding hairballs in the clean laundry, strands all over DS, my bathroom floor is covered. I'm so OVER it. I can't really tell when I look at my head thank goodness but the hair all over my house is disgusting. Why can't just all of my leg hair fall out so it's at least useful?

    I know, right? I had no leg hair during pregnancy and now they are back full-force *sigh*. I have a "catcher" in the shower drain and the water doesn't go down at all if I don't empty it out mid-shower. It's disgusting.
  • I'm EBF too and had extreme hair loss since April, but honestly it's getting a little better. I don't see as much hair in the shower drain. But yeah I think I'm going to buy a wig soon or shave my head, ha ha!!! Not really but that's the way I feel. :((
  • Count me in the weirdo looking hairline club. It's starting to grow back in, so I've got all these inch long hairs along my hairline. Ponytails look absurd.

  • I shed like a SOB before getting pregnant. It completely stopped during and has picked back up full force within the last month. Bad enough to have to clear the drain mid-shower so the water can drain.

    This is me exactly! It seems like the majority of my hair fell out around my bangs and temple area. There is no good way to hide the baldness there :(

  • I'm BF but I'm tired of washing my hair and spending a good part of removing hair off my hands and my body. My bathroom garbage can is just full of hair. It's gross! Oh and my hair is dry as hell and flat. I have curly hair so this sucks major balls and deep conditioning 2+ times a week isn't helping. Don't even get me started on the grays...
