Hair Loss

Hair Loss

Wondering how much hairloss are you lossing? And has anybody found that it grows back? If so, how long?! Thanks for taking the time time to write. I'm a bit concerned and having anxiety over this. It's been a rough to years, moved to a foreign country, sister had brain tumor, dad passed away, divorce and recently got diagnosed ( even though I think I don't have lupus, 1 out of 3 doctors believes I have it) wondering if all the stress can cause my hairloss! Thanks in advance for answering!

Hair loss is frequent for me, especially when I have a flare. I have long hair and lots of it. I keep up with taking vitamins and eating healthy. But yes ever since I was younger I just loose hair and it grows back.

Sorry for all that you had to go through, but try to do everything you can to control and reduce stress, such as music, talk to friends, meditate.....otherwise make things worse and worse. In the meantime get clear diagnoses, also let Dr check your thyroid function. Take care!

Hello everyone!!! If your Iron is low it will cost your hair to fall out and thin badly ... If your scalp has lesions then your hair won't grow back ... What I'm about to tell you women might sound crazy but I took Monistat cream for your vagina and mixed it with my hair grease and I grease my scalp it made my hair grow back ... I was completely bold at the top it really works... Lupus causes hair loss but doctors don't know how to make it grow back I tried all sorts all shampoos and hair products and the only thing worked was the Monistat...

Week or so after my positive test came back....my hair started dropping off my head. This is all new. But I think it's regrowing!! I also hated washing my hair.
