How can I make my hair stop falling out?

About this time last year I was diagnosed with anemia. My blood count was pretty low (4.7) and now it is much better (about 15 or so). I have noticed my hair is still falling out and getting thinner as well as my eye lashes. Could the anemia still be causing it or may it be something else. Please help.

Try and use a volume and hair growth shampoo. If your hair is healthy it should not fall out. It should grow grow grow!

my hair falls out a lot because i use a lot of hair spray! so if you wear hair spray then don't use as much also don't dry your hair with a hair dryer because your hair gets weak the it falls out!

You can pay attention to your diet to help improve the condition. What I know works a lot on hair falling is black sesame, and as for your anemia, what I know is that you should keep your diet regulated to stop overeating. Eat iron-rich foods, such as liver, lean meat, dairy products, beans, rice, apples, green leafy vegetables etc. would help improve your condition. Perhaps consulting a doctor about the diet would be more effective. :)

You need more vitamin B. I had a friend who went on a diet and lost a lot of weight and a lot of hair also. Doctor told her not enough vitamin B. Eat more green vegetables and have beef two or three times a week. The use of too much conditioner and washing too often and blow drying too much and using too much hair spray will clog scalp pores and stop hair growth and cause hair to break.

It cannot be stopped, though can be reduced.
So, to reduce them to fall :
Take in nutrients - like eat almonds ,
Drink lots of water ( best fluid - keeps you healthy as well as your skin ) ,
Keep your hair and scalp clean ,
Massage your scalp ( once a week at least) .

Hope this helps. :)

Look into: stress factors, caustic shampoos, brushing your hair when it's wet (only comb gently) but mostly stress...I've been through this twice...it's ironic, because losing your hair causes more stress...do things that make you feel good about yourself. GREAT LUCK :)

You may have low thyroid. tell your doctor and he can tell with a simple blood test. then if the production is low, you will take a pill a day like Synthyroid to bring your numbers up to normal. forget most of this nonsense people are telling you. it's a sign of a doctor related blood test.

Take a "well-known" vitamin every three days.
Get plenty of sleep, reduce "stress and anxiety".
Whatever may cause you stress, worry or anxiety, you should get away from it, permanently.

Have your thyroid checked. Also agree with taking vitamins and drinking plenty of water, exercise, and getting fresh air. You also you say your iron is fine now. Some people have a condition where iron needs to be constantly refreshed. Eat spinach and raisins. When you take vitamins with iron, make sure you do not take them on an empty stomach. Also, taking iron can cause constipaton. Birth control pills can cause your hair to fall out/thin out or anything you are using in that category.

Drink water, cut out aspartame and depending on your vitamin intake try a B-complex like Twin labs "Stress Tabs" Smoking and coffee restrict blood flow so if you do either, cut back or quit if you can. Excessive protein, or Vitamin A can also cause hair to fall out. There are several things that can cause it, and help treat it. A few helpful quips 1. A satin night cap when you sleep will cut down on split ends and help a bit, 2. your hair follicles will never get bigger, EVER, which means there is nothing that is going to change the thickness of your hair, there are products that will make it appear thicker, but it won't last. Rogaine does work, but it only lasts as long as you use it, it takes a month or so to even begin seeing improvements and if you do stop using it, you will lose what hair you did regrow from it. = (
