Well, i have been on Accutane twice, also. Like you, the first time, my hair was dry and thinned a little, but not enough to comment on. The second time, it was a nightmare. My hair started coming out (I was scared to even touch my hair, for fear of how many strands would fall to the ground) toward the end of my treatment, so I stopped taking the Accutane. This was 3 years ago. Now, I know everyone's experience is different, but THANK GOD my hair DID grow back. It took a while, but it grew back. It was about a year before my hair stopped falling out, and growing back- then when it did, about 6 months later, for some unknown reason, it seemed to start thinning again- BUT that subsided a couple of months later. What REALLY helped me was using Nioxin shampoo, conditioner and scalp treatment, along with taking a multi- vitamin, zinc and flax seed oil supplements. Be patient!!! I know what you're going through- but my hair is now finally back to the thickness that it was. I would love to go back on Accutane, but as a woman, I love my hair too much to put it back through that torture!
Hope this helps!
