I'm 23 and have been losing my hair for about a year. I used to have the barber thin my hair out because it was so thick and now its thin to the point of seeing my scalp. I had been losing hair around my temples for a few years but nothing to bad and nothing I couldn't hide easily. In March of 2011 I received some life changing news (of which I won't discuss) that basically put me in both physical and emotional shock.Shortly afterwards I went on anti-depressants and within a month I started losing a lot of hair. It was depressing seeing my hair falling off in the shower in big numbers. Somehow, I could still manage to cover it up and make it look normal.
I stopped taking the anti-depressants in Sept and my hair loss seemed to go down drastically, I had read that what I lost was supposed to grow back but I'm not sure if it did or not. I wanted to try and get some of my receding hairline back so I started using rogaine foam in Dec of last year. It was going great until about 3 weeks ago when I started losing a ton of hair. I do have regrowth where I'm applying it on my temples but my hair in front is so thin now its easy to see my scalp. In three weeks it changed so fast. I know they say to wait out the shed but is it normal for the shed to begin three months in???
My confidence is so up and down right now and it seems to be based on how my hair looks, so any support would be appreciated.
