i experience hair loss after being glutened but it happens much sooner than a month, just a couple of days later and it lasts longer than all my other symptoms. I was told that it is a pretty commom side effect :angry:

I have been losing my hair since i went gluten-free.

NO bald spots but it is definitely coming out in clumps!

I lost over eight inches of my hair in the back and its 1/3 of the thickness it use to be and it was thin to begin with. My bangs are now 6 inches long and I didnt have bangs before it was the same length as my hair in the back. I havent noticed any new growth back yet but I have been dealing with intolerances also so I think its been holding it back. Almost six months gluten free and only a few days corn free.

Im also on a biotin supplement, its suppose to be good for hair and nail growth.

I also get hair loss. Before I went gluten-free, it wasn't clumps, but was quite a lot. To the point where I showed a friend of mine how much was coming out when I just ran my hands through my hair and it startled her. Now, I get increased hair loss for a couple days after being glutened and then it goes back to normal.

Well.........I do feel better knowing I am not alone. I am going to go back on the Biotin again. I took it for awhile when I first started the gluten free diet. Not sure if it helped or the diet took care of it but I'll give it try. Thanks for sharing!
