Hair thinning...does it happen a lot to girls too?

Recommended Posts

Just curious. I haven't really read a lot of posts from girls complaining about hair falling out/thinning. Why is that? And if it happens less to girls, why? I have noticed that my hair is REALLY dry which I'm not yet complaining about, because having greasy hair made me feel dirty and I can actually go a day without washing it now which is pretty much a first.

Thoughts?

My hair thinned out after my first course of Accutane. I have no idea why it would happen more in guys vs. girls though. To be honest I haven't heard much about guys or girls complaining about this.

I've been on accutane for a little over a month and I have definately been experiencing hair loss. So far it hasn't been noticeable, my hair doesn't look or feel any thinner, but lately when I wash my hair quite a few hairs have been falling out. It doesn't really bother me as long as it doesn't become noticeable! ;)

Oh, I should rephrase... I noticed it was thinned out after the course was done. I'm sure it thinned out while I was on Accutane though. I'm on a 2nd course now, so it wasn't a big enough concern to make me decide to stay away from accutane.

My hair never went back to its original thickness though, even after being off it for six months. But it's not like it kept thinning, it got to a certain thinness and just stayed there.
