First of all relax and take deep breaths. Stress is one of the main causes of hair loss. Our diet is the one of the main causes of dry, brittle, breaking hair.
Prescribed medicine affects everyone in diffrent ways, so hair loss could play a factor. A varied whole food diet along with a good multi-mineral- vitamin, will assist, along with some kind of stress reduction therapy.

Most of us have had problems with our hair at one point or another. Once the disease is back under control my hair has always grown back. In fact it is thicker now than ever and curly instead of straight.

My hair broke off like yours did. I took the plunge and had it cut short and wore it that way for a couple of years. I wasn't sure what would happen when I tried to grow it longer, but it is now shoulder length and I am having only normal breakage.

There have been quite a few threads on this same subject in the "Looking Good, Feeling Better" forum. You should read back posts to get some suggestions from others who were in a similar situation.

Take care,

Hi, when my hair loss was at its worst, I had bald patches on my head. I also had mine cut quite short and it helped. It was easier to manage and easier to keep in good condition. Now I am on meds the hair loss isn't so much of a problem and my hair is a bit longer and as thick as it ever was.

Keep positive it will get better.
