How lucky of your granny to have nice thick hair!  It is very common for hair to thin out as we age.  Menopause, in particular, usually brings on a significant thinning that is permanent.

Here's hoping you have your granny's hair genes!

That is really encouraging.  The only people I know personally with long hair claim to not be able to get below waist.  Now I don't go home with them so who knows what they do there  8)

I hope very much to get below waist but that average of 100 seems pegged; 'course I'm guestimating too but I'm sure I'd be turning cartwheels if I ever hit the majic numbers Katherine is hitting.

I guess there is always Rogaine but I really don't want to go there, it's forever or don't bother ...gabi

The idea of menopause(which I haven't started yet)
scares me because my hair is thin enough now as it
is.   Some of my friends and one of my Grandma's
hair got real thin when they got older.  My mother's
however, stayed fairly thick.   I cant afford my hair to
get any thinner!

I found that taking MSM, biotin and silica helped reduce the shedding/thinning significantly.

Yes, BB I've been taking those!  I've actually been taking
GNC Ultranourishair which has all three,  but when I
am done with these, I will probable take them separatly
because the Nourishairs tend to upset my stomach
and so I can't take the full dosage.  I haven't noticed
a difference yet- but its only been about 45 days, and
I don't take the full dosage, either(2 pills) I only take one pill a day with my regular multi. After this I'm going
to get them separatly.  Granny's hair got so thin she
wore wigs every day, which probably excacerbated the
problem.  I don't know if she was on meds, which may
have also exacerbated the problem, too. She passed at
94

When I was younger, my hair was always what I considered to be unmanageably thick. Now my daughter has hair like that, but I find mine is manageably thick now, so I guess it's thinned out a bit. It's hard to compare my experiences with anyone else. I recall that before I went through menopause, my fallout was much higher than it is now, so perhaps when the hormones settle down again, fallout naturally tapers off.

I'm not taking HRT, so that's something else that may be a factor.

I had to have a total hysterectomy 8 years and I do take HRT.  Premarin 1.25 mg per day and my hair has not thinned.  My sides are thin, but were always thin but my ponytail measures out at a healthy ii normal thickness, my hair is fine, and straightish.

It's a decision everyone has to make on her own, but I will take HRT as long as I can get it.

HTH,
