Let's see, the vitamin D could be an issue. I started to get chemical peels and microdermabrasions for my skin last year and ever since I've been staying away from the sun and using sunblock when I am in it so that would def. lower the vitamin D in my body in comparison to years before. I also take fish oil, but not cod liver oil (the fish oil doesn't have vitamin D in it, cod liver does) b/c I am afraid of vitamin D overdose but perhaps my levels are too low, maybe I should be tested.
I am not and have never been on any hormonal birth control so that would not be an issue.
As far as shampoo, I use either Aubrey organics or Burt's bees so basically all natural, no chemical shampoo, no conditioner but have always done the no conditioner thing, perhaps I need to start on a conditioner now? I used to use this hair oil once a week from Better Botanicals, it made my hair really shiny and healthy looking, maybe I should get some more, don't know why I stopped using it really. I've always been the wash and go girl, my hair is long and wavy and it's always looked nice just natural so I don't blow dry it or put any other products in it.
As far as water, I don't think it's too hard. I used to live in a place with well water and now I live in the city so it's city water I wonder if the added chemicals like chlorine could have an effect.
As far as thyroid, never had that checked so that might be another thing to do.
Thank you so much for your tips. I can totally tell that my hair isn't as thick and I also that it's falling out at a higher rate.
