When it comes to my hair one of things I have had issues with is that it is very fine and brittle.
This is mainly due to having two medical conditions which fine brittle hair is the symptom of
PCOS and underactive thyroid.
I've always dreamed of having long thick locks and have tried to make my hair more thicker and healthier
by trying out different shampoo's and conditioners to make my hair look and feel thicker.
These however have never worked and I had started thinking of giving up and just having to
accept that my hair is always going to fine.
As you can see in the photo below the front of my hair is very fine I have tried growing my hair
so that it is all one length but it's only really got as long as this before it starts to break off.
You can also see that my hair looks very flat too.
The back of my hair doesn't look too bad but really could do with looking more thicker and healthier.
Your hair follicles follow a natural cycle of hair growth and resting phases.
But if like me you have an underactive thyroid the changes in the body can throw off the cycle meaning
you have more resting phases and not enough growing phases resulting in excessive hair loss, thinning and balding.
Because hair growth relies on your thyroid gland working properly abnormal levels of thyroid hormone produced by this gland can result in hair changes.
I am going to be trying a female hair loss treatment for a space of three months to work together with
the normal hair growth cycle and help normalize the overall life and function of my hair follicles.
Hopefully I wont find my hair shedding and breaking off like it currently does anymore.
Do you have issues with your hair due to an imbalance?
