Nearly a decade ago I lost a lot of weight. I wasn't exactly dieting, but there was a lot of exercise, and I think there were hormonal surges, I acted sort of manic, and there was hair shedding. I shed hair like crazy. My carpet was covered in a carpet of my own hair, and so was my car. I just pulled out gobs of it all the time, and then it would still come out all the time. I was concerned on a vanity point - I love having a lot of hair although it makes many styling matters impossible it is an exotic thing about me that I like and others envy.
Well, it's happening again. This time there's no mania, no hormone surges, and no exercise, but there's hair everywhere. Inconvenient when you're prepping food to find a hair on your hands, and I'm constantly having to pick it out of my cleavage.
Could this be something that happens after several months of "calorie deficiency" like a diet? Are any of the rest of you out there who have maybe lost about 50 pounds shedding a lot of hair?
