A couple of years ago, my hair started falling out. Not in clumps, but I noticed more hair than usual in my comb and in the bath drain.
I went to a trichologist (a hair specialist) who tested my blood (all fine), told me some thinning was natural for a woman in her mid-40s and sent me home with expensive shampoo and a serum to use on my scalp. I used the potions. I took vitamins. I stopped brushing my hair.
Though it is more common—and visible—in men, many women lose their hair. While hair loss may be hereditary in some cases, other women experience thinning hair due to menopause or health problems.
So why did my hair fall out? After doing some research on my own, I decided it was either a bad bout of stress or the antidepressant I was taking at the time to treat the stress.
I’ll never know for sure, because both stress and certain antidepressants can cause hair loss. But after a couple of months, my hair stopped coming out and my life was back to normal.
