It has a history.
‘Way back in like December last year, when I was in the hospital, I had all sorts of medications, and when I came home I was on three new drugs at once.
So when MY HAIR STARTED FALLING OUT, there wasn’t a simple answer as to why.
And it spent most of the spring falling out.
It filled up hair brushes.
It clogged the drain of the tub.
It landed all over everywhere, for months.
The backs of chairs, the car, any place I spent time got filled with hair
My guess is that it thinned by about half.
I madly googled, and two of the three things I’m taking can do this.
The third, people on message boards say it does, but the doctors say they’ve never heard of it.
So who knows.
But there are lists of things people take to try to stop it, most of which I can’t have.
Because of, mostly, the warfarin, which is a very fussy medication.
But I can take biotin with it, and have been, and finally the hair stopped falling out.
Which is good, right?
My guess is, it turned around about six months ago.
Because all over my head, I have three inches of regrown hair, about as much of it as of the rest of my hair.
If you think of Ellie Mae Clampett, it’s kind of that effect.
Except for not being bright blonde and intentional.
Anywhere in my hair, if you pull at it a little, you come up with masses of short curly hair.
Which basically means the whole top of my head has weird corners, where the shorter hair makes it lie oddly.
Like permanent, built-in bed hair.
This too shall pass.
