Hair loss
Hi have long hair which I colour every few months at a Salon with a colour shampoo. The past 3 months my hair has started falling out a lot more than usual. When i comb my hair huge amounts come out. My hair is all over the floor, in my bed. It is starting to feel thinner and i have always had a thick head of hair. I stopped the pill about 4 months ago, have not had children and have not been on any diet.

Should I be concerned and what do I do? If I need to see someone would it be a GP or an expert in this field.

The Pill often makes hair thicker, so stopping the Pill may have something to do with it. If your periods and everything else is normal, perhaps ask your hairdresser to suggest a treatment shampoo such as Vi-gro.
