I have hair loss as part of my lupus. Mine gets better when on steroids (hasn't stopped completely in months), but like the previous poster said, comes back with flares. I have heard that several of the meds used to treat lupus can cause hair loss as a symptom.

Also, yes, hypothyroidsm can cause brittle hair and hair loss.

I would talk to your doctor about it and see what they think.

Take care,
