Hi - I posted this on a separate thread, but nobody replied, so I am reposting (sorry) and hope I have more luck....
Starting around February or March, my hair began thinning out rather drastically. In the shower, there were just a ton more hairs coming out in the shampoo than normal. My hair loss has been pretty constant since.
I went vegetarian in February, so I just assumed that caused my hair loss. I went to two dermatologists - one said it was telogen effluvium and things would go back to normal in 6 months, and another said that it wasn't (but he barely even looked at my head at all).
I know the timing may not work out perfectly, but I am still assuming it is te because every hair that falls out, whether it be a thick, long one, or a thin, short one, has the white bulb on the end.
My two questions are: if all the hairs that are falling out are telogen, then is it definitely te? And, around a month or more ago, I started eating a better balanced diet, and taking iron, biotin, and multi-vitamins, but my hair loss hasn't subsided at all. Does that mean anything?
