I am 25 years old, had a baby in 6 months ago, and since lost about 30 pounds. My scalp is also itchy. I know with pregnancy and weight loss you can lose hair. I am just wondering if it is reversible or what I can do to stop my hair from falling out before it is too late.
You must wait it out, at least a year. Hair loss often returns by then, especially if you are not breast feeding. There really isn’t any way I know of to prevent it, as there are many hormonal changes occurring that cause this telogen effluvium.
