Does Everyone Else Who Sweats Profusely From Their Head Have Thinning Hair?

Does Everyone Else Who Sweats Profusely From Their Head Have Thinning Hair?

At 1st i thought it was my meds. Then maybe stress. It then occurred to me that I'm constantly wiping my hair where its thinning?

Yes. I am 62 and have fine hair. Especially in the summer, I have so much sweat that my hair actually gets sopping wet. I wear a visor in the summer that have those terrycloth headbands. Those absorb a lot of moisture, and keeps it from stinging in my eyes. These type of headbands are getting harder to find, so if you come across them, snag them and hoard them. They are a godsend, and they look sort of stylish anyway, so why not use them!

Yes, I do, but my hair loss is from trauma. I’ve tried using Evolis, and it works. Friends have said so. It’s only gradual though and I’m not sure if u have to continue using it for long periods. Worth looking into.

Yes! I was going to ask this question. I sweat so much my hair is dripping within a minute. I have severe anxiety as well. So that is a major factor. I’ve lost so much hair, I’ve had to get special haircuts, and streaks. I do the same things as you. As for the hair and head, I use a silk pillow case. It helps prevent more hair loss. I also sweat less.

Hello Jennie, I've not heard of Evolis, what is it and what is it used for? I'm taking propantheline bromide aka pro banthine for my sweats and it works wonderfully but my hairdresser says my hair is thinning, I just wondered if it helped the hair...Thank you love, hope you have a good day..xxx

Hello Laura,.my hair has started to thin a little, and it seems to be breaking off about two inches from my head. I blamed it on a severe illness I had last January, but it should have grown back by now, surely...I do take propantheline bromide aka pro banthine, which works really well, but sometimes when exert myself, when doing the cleaning etc, I do sweat from the head, my mum used to do the same...so I don't know what's causing the thinning.....God bless...xxxx
