She took to Instagram to ask for solutions

Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has been very open about her lifelong battle with kidney dysplasia. She recently undertook a kidney transplant, following which she’s been placed on a ton of medication. That medication has been affecting Sarah in a lot of ways, and she very bravely admitted on Instagram over the weekend that one of those ways is hair loss.

On her Instagram story to over 5 million followers, 27-year-old Hyland asked her audience for a solution to her thinning hair - which is happening as a result of her medications.

She said, “Help, help, help. What hair-care products are out there for thinning hair? This 27-year-old would like to know”, adding “I know it seems like I don’t, but I do. Some of my medications have been making my hair fall out."

She added that she can’t take a lot of over the counter hair loss supplements due to their interaction with her other medications.

After being sent loads of suggestions, Sarah shared some of them with her audience.

She said, “castor oil, leave it in and wash it out," she said. "There’s also, like, some shampoos. There’s this caviar thing, this Hask thing”.

She also previously discussed the other physical effects her medications and illness have on her. When she was accused of looking on the thin side, she said, “I’ve basically been on bed rest for the past few months, I’ve lost a lot of muscle mass. My circumstances have put me in a place where I’m not in control of what my body looks like.”

Hair loss is a common problem, even for women, but it’s very brave of Sarah to share her struggles with her entire audience in an effort to try and both get help for it and perhaps make other people feel less alone.
