THINNING HAIR SINCE PREGNANCY
My hair has thinned terribly since I fell pregnant and a lot comes out when I comb after washing. I have beenbreastfeeding for 5 months. Is there a specific vitamin/mineral that I am lacking or is it just generally that you give everything to baby and need to stock up on all nutrients all over again?

It is probably hormonal. Try Vi-gro shampoo.
