I never had a lush head of hair but it was pretty and shiny and I could rock just about any style. Then after turning 50 I started noticing a lot more hair in the shower drain and the tub. I kept telling everyone something was wrong and they all replied “Oh, you have plenty of hair!” But I knew eventually the loss would outpace the regrowth and finally that happened about 4 years ago. I have had to resort to toppers more than once since then. I use Rogaine, Ketoconazole shampoo, take Biotin, use a laser comb and still it falls outs. (I tried spironolactone but can’t tolerate it.) Last year the hair loss slowed down and I regrew enough hair that I started feeling good about it for the first time in years. Then one day, I lost a handful after shampooing and I knew exactly what was going to happen. And it did, I lost all the hair I had regrown in less than two months. So, now I’m (im)patiently waiting for my new topper from Uniwigs. (And trying NOT to panic.) I think it’s hard for people to understand how devasting this can be. Thank you for this forum!
