Ever since high school, I’ve had fairly thin and fine hair. I was okay with it, because I never had thick hair to deal with. Sometimes I wished my hair was a little thicker, but I’ve overall been happy with what I’ve been able to do with my hair.
In the last few months, however, I’ve seen an increase in the amount of hair that I’ve been shedding. It was starting to scare me a little bit, so I did all kinds of google searching, talked to a girl at the salon, and talked to my doctor. Everyone said what I had read online:-you lose 150 to 200 strands of hair per day-you shed more in the summer because it’s hot-etc etc etc
During this time, I was having my thyroid medicine checked, I had changed birth control, and I had changed my exercise habits. All of these things were things that were suggested to increase shedding. Of course everyone said to wait it out…but I didn’t like worrying. So, with the suggestion of my doctor and hair stylist, I started taking vitamins and supplements.
*cue* angels singing.
Oh My Gosh. Do you take vitamins? It’s amazing how much of a difference it’s made in just the two weeks that I’ve been taking them. I’m taking a multi-vitamin for women, biotin, and B-12. My doctor said I should also take calcium, but I haven’t run out to get that yet.
So, are you a believer in vitamins or supplements? What do you take? Do you see the effects? I’d also be interested in hearing what you take to replenish energy lost while running or working out!
If you’re looking, I’d recommend the Women’s One-A-Day as a starter!Follow on bloglovin Follow on twitter
