So I am 4 months out and have lost already 60lbs and I am so happy for that but I am loosing so much hair, like a big ball daily. I started taking a skin, nail and hair vitamin and I drink a protein shake daily but the hair still keeps coming out. Any suggestions of what else I can do because its getting really bad.

This is normal ... I remember feeling nervous and scared . Every time I took a shower I was freaking out with all the hair in the drain. It will slow down. The vitamins help u grow new hair faster. Hang in there. It will grow back.

Make sure you are drinking 2 protein drinks/day and taking your vitamins. You can also add 5000mcg of biotin/day. Your vitamins may contain biotin so if they do, you can take additional biotin up to 5000mcg/day. Hair loss can last 3 to 6 months but it will stop and your hair will grow back.

Ocastro I experienced hair loss too. I know a few people who recommend Nioxin hair products, which I bought at Holiday Hair. I wasn't as pleased with it as some so tried Bosley products, which I got online. I really like the Bosley. You may want to try one of these.
