Significant HAIR LOSS after going no poo

freemayofreemayo Posts: 53Registered Users
I decided to go no poo about two months back. My hair looks alot softer than before. At first, I thought it was wonderful.

Since then, however, I have had bad hair loss especially along the hair line, which has always been a weak part for me.

I'm cowashing with whole food's 365 Everyday Value Fragrance Free Conditioner. I then follow with an oil rinse using grapeseed oil and very warm water. I use Giovanni 50:50 Balanced Hydrating-Calming Conditioner for Normal to Dry Hair as a leave in. I mix the 50:50 with 100% argan oil I buy at thesage.com.

I have developed an allergy to alot of essential oils so I have been using mostly fragrance free products lately.

Does anybody have any suggestions as what could be causing this? I am at my wit's end.

I put the ingredients of the products I use below:

    I don't think it's the products... go to a doc & tell them what's been going on. My mom & I are were noticing some hair loss for a while & our doc said it was hard water.
