Women and men may discover that they are having hair loss while on the hCG diet. Here are a few facts about hair loss and hormones. While this does not happen with everyone, below are some tips to keep this to a minimum. Your hair texture should return to normal in Phase 4.
Hair loss during and after hCG can be due to hormonal problems. There is a larger report of hair loss issues on the injection hCG hormone versus oral drops. An overactive or under active thyroid can cause hair to fall out. While you are on the hCG diet your thyroid and hormones are going through changes. We did experience a little hair loss on the drops and a few months post hCG this returned completely to normal.
