I had a little bit of a different situation with my hair but i can recommend you products. I was bleaching my hair blonde for so many years when I’m a brunette and had severe hair loss due to damage. I just started trying these Monat products for reconstruction and my hair has grew back soooo much!!! It’s a little bit pricey ~$190 for shampoo, conditioner, serum, hair mask, but sooo worth it!! Their products are vegan and doctors recommend it for woman who had cancer and need to reconstruct their hair. I would definitely give it a shot if you have nothing to lose!!

I heard Monat has the opposite affect for many women, causing hair loss and extreme damage. They have a number of pending lawsuits against them so I’d be wary of this company.

OP, get your thyroid checked before you try anything else. That can cause all sorts of symptoms including hair loss. Someone above recommended Monat - besides the fact that it’s an MLM/pyramid scheme, I’m sure some people find it helps them (or it would have gone out of business) but I know someone who lost half their hair thanks to using it. So be wary.

I don’t have much to recommend as I don’t suffer from this myself but I can tell you that a lot of young Indian women in the US suffer from hair loss. I don’t know why this specific sub population deals with this issue disproportionately.. Maybe hair loss doctors can advise.

Have you talked to your primary care phys about this? Could be PCOS.... are you on birth control? The pill made me lose so much hair (I’m Indian too)

I’m Asian and my dr had put me on medicine that was making my hair fallout so to help I started taken biotin. I think it’s helped, my nails are definitely a lot stronger. Will take about one month of daily biotin though to notice any effects.

Cleveland Clinic for functional medicine should be able to help you. Hair loss is due to inflammation in the body. They will get to the root cause with comprehensive testing

Thank you for the support guys. For the record, I do have thyroid. I was diagnosed about 8 years ago. The levels have been stable ever since I started meds. I have some, not all symptoms of pcos ( periods at regular), so most gynacs won’t really say I have pcos. I’ve seen a slew of docs - obgyns, derms, endocrinologists over the years, with little to no change unfortunately. I will say I’m not a healthy weight right now and becoming diabetic - it runs in the family.i do realize I have to work on those things. The constant hair fall just does not help, sigh

Conventional doctors generally aren’t able to help with these things. Functional medicine would help and it would likely help you get off medication as well, by addressing the root cause of your issues.

My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
