Losing SO much hair in the shower and on my brush! Help?

Sammistar24 Asked: Losing SO much hair in the shower and on my brush! Help?

I'm 23 years old, and lately I've been losing a lot of hair. I first noticed it when I switched my birth control to LoSeasonique this summer, but I quickly got off of it and back on my previous medicine when I noticed slight weight gain and hair loss. But I've been on my previous birth control for a couple of months now and I'm still losing a lot of hair in the shower. More than I ever had before. Clumps will come out and on my hand and now it takes me even longer in the shower because my hair is semi-long. It also comes out a lot on my hair brush when I'm blow drying my hair to where I have to clean off my brush every single day (it's that bad). At first I thought it would just get back to normal on it's own but it hasn't and when I touch my head it even feels like there is less hair on it, and my hair isn't as "thick" as it was before (just flat now) and it wasn't even that thick to begin with.

What is going on? I know it normal to lose 100 strands a day, but this is much more. If I were to see a doctor would it be a general practitioner or a dermatologist?

I used to take biotin pills for a long time just because I wanted extra lush hair, but I stopped that and went to a womens multi-vitamin because I work with a bunch of little kids and didn't want to get sick, but I'll be honest when I say I haven't been consistent with taking it. I switch shampoos and conditioners but I usually use the same ones in rotation. Right now I'm using Redken's shampoo and cond. What is going on?? Please help!
