Hi 19 year old male here, suprising I know. I was down to a little over 130 for a while and started to lose my hair and that was the turning point for me when I decided to eat more, anywho im 152 now at 6' 3. my hair is still falling out months later typical I know, but my question is some people I heard saying that when they lost their hair it became dry and brittle and broke off, mine however is just complete shedding ,the hairs litteraly fall out from the scalp with the bulb at the end. Was your hair loss like this or was it just snapping off.
You need to get the herb saw palmetto, it will help stop your hair from falling out and horse chesnut will also help. These are both natural herbs, look them up on the internet. Hope this helps.
You should probably talk to your doctor. Losing hair in large amounts (clumps?) from the roots could be symptomatic of general poor health or it could be due to something like anaemia, a fungal infection or Alopecia. Either way, you should bring this to their attention and get checked out physically.
When I stopped taking my prenatal vitamin while breast-feeding my hair fell out like yours did. I was also under a lot of stress from my job at the time, and caring for an infant by myself while my hubby was stationed in Korea. I didn't take my vitamins for three days, and the hair loss was almost instantaneous!! I bought more vitamins in a hurry and it took about a week for the vitamins to kick in and the hair loss to stop.
I would try a multivitamin to augment your vitamin consumption. Surprisingly, the Flintsone chew ables are fairly good in supplying vitamins. But you would probably be better served by getting a multivitamin geared towards a young male. Vitamin supplements would help I think, but I'd go talk to your doc as well.
There is another possibility, since you are male. Take a good look at your mother's father and find out about his history with hair loss. While it is very likely that your hair loss is the result of poor eating, there is also male pattern baldness that can start to kick in around your age. If the doctor and better eating don't help, you might just have to accept it.
people with male pattern baldness dont shed hair, it grows back finer and finer each new cycle because DHT shrinks the follice. when you have male baldness you still grow hair but they are very fine and look like those small blonde hair at the edges of your hair line that are near invisible. I do not have that my hair is diffusely sheded and done so in a period of 3-4 months.
the bulb coming out is not a good sign, you need to go to your Dr who in turn will most probably send you to see a specialist.
Hair loss due to health does not usually cause the bulb to come away with the shaft it generally just causes the regrowth to slow down or stop but you would still have a sparse covering over the area.
At age 19 your are losing your hair rapidly, root and all? It sounds like you have an underlying medical condition that is causing this. Talk to your doctor. I would also stop using any gel or hairspray, as hair styling products can sometimes contribute to poor scalp health.
