    I am just curious if you are using whey protein supplements? There is some talk out there about whey protein, working out and hair loss in men. Not sure if it applies to women or if this has been scientifically proven. There are other sites that say whey protein is good for hair loss. I am using whey protein to help gain weight but I cut it in half because I have questions about it. Have you read anything regarding this.

    Hi all I have the same thinning at the nape , temples and sides. I had Telogen effluvia which I think was triggered by HRT/moving house this was sept 18 It has since carried on shedding after 4 months of heavy shedding albeit it is a lot less , my hair has never recovered its density just grows thinner hair. I noticed the thinning on the nape alongside itching now and then with the little red rash, but don't know How long it had been like this before I noticed. I have tried all the shampoos, vitamins I have changed diet where I eat very little processed food cut down on sugar. I went to see a trichologist who suggested this is testosterone so I stopped taking that part of the therapy, this has not improved anything by the way and she seemed very flippant And unbothered. I went to see a dermatologist he diagnosed me with Telogen said that doing any tests would be a wasted of time April 2020 was when I started taking oral minoxidil - no improvement when I went back to see him in Nov 2020 he didn’t seem bothered - (You just cannot make it up can you) I also use essential oils massage them into my hair , look after my hair treating it like the most daintiest bunny going - and STILL nothing is improving, SO I am considering going to see a endocrinologist , I have had bloods taken before my last TSH came in at 1.2 the usual stuff was said. “ normal range” Yet like some of you my skin is greasier blonde hair grows on my face I think this is to do with peri though. I am in for bloods again in feb so this will be interesting then if NORMAL comes back I’m off to see the endocrinologist , I feel like its something to do with Thyroid and I AM going to get to the bottom of it I am still young and my hair should not be like this for my age I could accept it better if I was 70 but I am not I dont like feeling unconfident. If anyone has any updates please please let us know how your doing. I will post back again soon, A
