Since childhood, I have had massively thick hair. As I've gotten older, it has thinned out a small amount, mostly from hair coloring.. until recently, I noticed that I've been losing it at a very rapid pace. I noticed it not long after I went entirely vegan (other than very rare accidental dairy consumption).
I try to stay away from junk, but I know my diet probably isn't what it should be. I'm pretty sure I get enough protein, since I usually have some kind of soy product (tofu, tempeh) a few times per day. Other than that, I'm not taking any medication that would cause hair loss and I haven't colored in my hair in months. Its not thin to the point where others may notice, but I do. I have a feeling that I'm probably lacking in some nutrients. I already have an appointment with my doctor...I just want to do some research and get feedback from other people who may have had this issue before I go.
