Thanks for your question. I recommend that you discuss your question with your doctor
. There are many explanations for hair loss
and changes in the strength of the hair, but it is important to understand how hair grows in order to better answer this question. There are 3 stages of hair growth and in the life of a hair follicle. In one stage, the follicle is actively growing, in the other it remains relatively stable, and in the last the hair can even fall out (gross over simplification, of course). Hair follicles can move from one stage to the next very quickly after spending years in the first (growing stage), and much of what drives this change is not understood. What is understood, however, is that nutrition and stress play a large role in the process of hair growth. It is very common for people with eating disorders to have changes to their hair. Because of how long it takes for a hair follicle to grow and how long it may take for a follicle to move from one stage or cycle to the next, correcting an eating disorder
does not immediately lead to normalization of the hair. Please speak with your doctor about this question and to make sure you are well.
