Can You Reverse Hair Loss?

I recently decided to lose weight for health reasons, which I did successfully.  However, the downside was my hair started falling out.  I know they say that’s a side effect of menopause but there’s really more to it.  Let’s find out.

First, I realized I was taking a daily vitamin that had iron in it.  Well, after menopause, iron is a no-no. Also, one of the side effects of taking iron after menopause is – you guessed it – hair loss!  So, I immediately changed vitamins to one that does not contain iron.

Second, I lost a total of 45 pounds (and, thankfully, have kept it off) but, as I found out the hard way, that’s also a reason for hair loss.

So, even though I have totally changed my eating habits, I’m not on a diet anymore and after changing my daily vitamin, within 2 months my hair started getting thicker again and, now, it’s back to normal.

Let’s look at some more reasons for hair loss and what you can do:
