Hi! Im 7 months on keto and am experiencing the dreaded hair shedding for the last couple of months:(. Luckily, i had quite thick hair starting out, but im definitely noting much thinner locks.
I am also experiencing a totally different texture of my hair. It used to be wavy with lots of body and fullness…usually frizzy. Now its stick straight, flat and lifeless… But quite shiny and smooth. Very strange!
Ive got what looks to be new growth around my hairline so im hoping i am almost through this phase. Started collegen and biotin suppliments hoping for healthy new hair.
Any one else experienced change in TEXTURE in addition to shedding?
I also wonder if this phenomenon is similar to what post-partum women go thru due to hormonal fluctuations? It seems estrogen plays a big role there and i experienced some initial estrogen related “side effects” when i first started keto (resume of period after almost a year of peri-menopause, temporary acne, etc). Any research/links that supports this theory?
