I have only done the four shots for the loading dose....but already I have noticed a big increase in the amount of hair showing up over the drain when I shower.  This has not happened since i was on Tysabri.
Anyone else notice any thinning or hair loss that may be associated to the Humira?

I have been on Humira for a little over a year and have had tremendous hair loss, breakage and dry hair. Prior, I had great hair. I have tried every expensive product out there and nothing has helped.
I started putting coconut oil in my hair every night for the past two months and my hair looks and feels remarkable better. It's even helping some of the spots grow back in. I love this stuff! I also put it on my face and my husbands too! My friends and family have even noticed a difference.
Good luck....I understand the frustration!
