I have been losing my hair for about 8 years. I been told all kinds of things like telogen effluvium and anemia due to fibroids. I was told that a hysterectomy would reverse the condition. It did not and its been 18 months.
I just started taking Omega 3’s 1000mg for hair growth, now I read that it causes hair loss. I have been so depressed from this. I had such beautiful thick hair. Is is true that Omega 3 will make my hair loss worse? I have about 1/2 of my hair left.
All women with hair loss need to be checked out by their doctor for hormone imbalances and other conditions that can cause hair loss. Telogen effluvium is a temporary loss, but it’s possible that a hysterectomy could contribute more loss due to the surgical stress.
As for Omega-3 pills, I’ve written before that I don’t think it has anything to do with hair loss, but I don’t know of any good scientific study that discusses possible Omega-3’s role in hair growth or loss.
