Help, My Hair Is Falling Out. Every Time I Wash It Big Clumps Come Out.

Help, My Hair Is Falling Out. Every Time I Wash It Big Clumps Come Out.

I just recently started plaquenil again. I’ve had lupus for years but in a flare now. What do I wash my hair with? I’m using a gray hair product now. Really scared this time over hair loss.

Black castor oil and nixion products are good

How often are you washing your hair? I did hair for 35 years and if you wash it to often it can cause more hair loss, also can cause a dry itchy scalp. Its best to get a scalp master type brush with the nylon bristles that bend and do not wash your hair but maybe 1 a week 2 TOPS! Also putting in some good products that are more natural like an oatmeal hair wash keeps your head from itching also if you have that problem. My hair has thinned some but its really long. Also Vitamin D and prenatal vitamins. I hope some of these will help

I use Elive extraordinary oil shampoo and the conditioner. I was experiencing lots of hair coming out. I have been using the new for 4 months. It has helped.
