Thread Starter 
Seriously for the last 4 days i've been pulling chunk atfer chunk out when i get out of the shower, I havent dyed it flat ironed it or done anything to it in months, and im taking a multi vitamin and biotin, wtf is wrong with me, im not stressed, im eating really healthy now? I haven't changed shampoo or conditioner why is this happening. I have never ever had so much hair come out in the shower or just running my hands through my hair

Maybe alopecia? I had it a few years ago.

Like Yogi said, it could be alopecia arreta(sp) which is often related to stress or it could be a fungal infection on your scalp. Hair loss is also a symtom of malnutrition. Or it could be something else I don't know about...

You need to go see your doctor to find out the cause and get treatment.

Sometimes the hair loss is delayed. A few months after a stressful or traumatic event. It happened to me a few years ago. It's all back now though, just as thick as before.

Are you on any birth control pills? There's several that cause hair to fall out.

sometimes if you havent washed your hair for a few days the ones that fall out stay in your head so when you wash it it seems like loads more is falling out. i dont know how often you wash your hair though, but go and see a doctor

It could be realted to the Chemo? It could also be a hormonal imbalance. I lost gobs of hair in chunks when my pregnancy hormones returned to normal. GOBS! You could feel them on my scalp and I had spikes all over until they grew back in.

Malnutrition is a probability as well, considering your symptoms we talked about. Have you had a colonoscopy during all your treatment to see if you have damaged intstines? This is the surest way to become malnourished, damaged intestines, especially if you have food allergies or intolerances. I would make an appointmkent with a gastro specialist to be safe.

* Nope no bitrh control, last tramatic events happened about 4-5 months ago, wash my hair every other day stiwtch from bio to pureology, take vitamins and eat healthy, but chemo a few months back so you think this is a delayed reaction, maybe the depro provera finally wearing off?

I had a traumatic period in my life, and my hair didn't start falling out until about 3-4 months down the road...

Are there any signs of bald spots? I'm sorry this is happening to you. I wish I could give you some of my hair bc I have way too much.
