    Sure I will doo and Thank youu Your grandma is one clever lady & I've also heard of a shampoo or foam of some sort called Regain, do you have any thoughts?
    Never heard of it, but, maybe give it a shot?

    She was very clever! Sometimes, home remedies work the best, give them a shot.

    If you don't mind me asking, are you south asian (indian, pakistani....etc) because, then they have a better chance of working, because it worked on me. I'm Indian, so, I'm unsure about caucasian hair, but, I'm sure they either work or they don't, they definitely won't cause any harm.

    Try the egg thing, it may not completely stop the hairfall, but your hair will be better quality and stronger.

    Oil it as long as you can, and then wash off with shampoo. That's the best way to do it

    Tell me how it goes!

    oh my :eek: you should probably go to the doctors again in the near future, it may be something other than having an iron deficiency :/
    Yeah, that too. I was wondering, could it be a scalp thing? I mean, for her, maybe she should see a dermatologist too?

    Yea I think so too. But my doc is so ignorant like, because I went again about two weeks ago, and she was like it has to be 3 months until we review it and if they don't improve then I'll refer you to a skin specialist or sumthin, but its been 4 months.

    thats must be pretty frustrating, yikes. ask other doctors if you have the time. not all doctors know the solution to these types of stuff so it will be good to ask around a bit and get more insight on this, hopefully its nothing serious tho

    Hopefully, my mum just put oil on my hair right, and she started blaming me for my hair loss, it killed so bad, and literally like a gigantic ball came out. Ngl, I was crying.

    i agree she probably should, if it carries on/worsens over time. maybe its b12 deficiency? hair loss is a common symptom but im not sure if that could be the cause for her

    Thank Youu, I'll check that out I'm really insecure about my hair now
    Please don't feel insecure! I know it feels **** when it's happening and I'm sorry you feel insecure about it, but please know that you are beautiful. Go speak to your doctor to find out why it's continuing to happen; my sister had huge clumps of her hair fall out and it was due to a thyroid issue and she's now getting treatment.

    Do you straighten/dye you hair a lot? That could lead to hair breakage

    I have this too. I think lots of girls around our age, including most of my friends and I, have some form of iron deficiency. And yes sadly it causes hair loss too I started finding white hairs when I was 12, I went to the doctor and they sent me for a blood test and found out I had Iron and Vitamin D deficiency. Taking the tablets made my hair better but they made me feel really sick so I stopped taking them.

    I've been taking them and the doctor said they should have started improving, but they are just getting worse and worse. My dad is sure that this is much deeper than a iron deficiency.
