Yeah I sure did. I also still lose hair for a couple of weeks after a glutening even if the DH doesn't flare. I first eliminated all gluten from shampoos, conditioners and all other topicals and I added biotin to my vitamin regime. I have also had good luck with Country Life's Hair and Nails formula.

One thing to be real careful of is topical products like Rogaine, last I checked this was not gluten free and might make the issue worse.

Thanks. I've read that the hairloss is sometimes permanent. However, I have not come across any studies or statics indicating the probability of regrowth. I was just diagnosed with celia + dh last month (I'm 30) and am worried that I may be nearly bald before the dh clears. Have you or anyone else experienced hair regrowth?

Yes, it grows back. It usually takes about 3 months after the loss stops before it becomes obvious but grow back it does. It should for you to if it is related to the celiac.

Now I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my pending caliacs, but I had really bad hair loss that lasted about 4 months. I lost more then half of my hair, my hair was dry, crispy and thin, and my scalp was always itchy, dry, and inflamed. This was really traumatizing, but all my hair grew back to its original thickness and shininess within about 5 months. I know its hard, but try not to worry! I was told by several dermatologists that chances are, with any type of short-term hair loss, it will stop and reverse itself.

In the meantime, there are things you can do to keep your hair and scalp healthy. I soaked my head and scalp with virgin olive oil every few days. This keeps your hair and scalp healthy and hydrated. I also washed my hair with very sensitive shampoo that I made myself mixing 1 part sage tea and 1 part baby shampoo. Don't use any hair damaging hair products or a blow dryer/straightner.

Again,stay positive! I'm sure your hair will grow up.

Hope this helps! Good luck.
