My hair has been falling out pretty rapidly for 1+ month now, to the point where it's getting obvious my hair is thinning :( Can I do anything to stop or slow it?

What I'm doing right now: trying to make sure 20%+ my food intake on eating days is protein, and I take biotin, collagen, and vitamin E every day in addition to a multivitamin.

Thank you for any tips

See a dermatologist!! Also see about getting bloodwork done as you might have some deficiencies.

i lost a lot of hair during a hardcore restriction phase and also had other symptoms of protein deficiency at the same time (random swelling/edema)... this time around i am drinking lots of protein shakes and even tho i am restricting to the same level my hair is okay for now. lack of protein definitely causes hair loss, try bumping up your protein intake if you can

Rosemary oil or a rosemary rinse works amazing, i heard that it works similar to minoxidil but im not sure, it worked amazing for my hair tho

Like everyone else said, make sure you aren't severely deficient in anything and make sure you are getting the proper nutrition to support hair maintenance (all your healthy fats, macros/micros). Check for any hormonal issues as well. I'd also experiment with different biotins since I hear that some people react better to different products? Not sure, the cheapest one worked for me. Make sure you aren't taking too much if you experience acne though (since biotin causes acne in large concentrations in some people! you really only need 1000-5000 mg, I take 3000!) 

Stress can also cause hair loss, so although ik its hard to control stress levels, you might benefit from some meditation or more self care activities. 

 

Rosemary has been proven to support hair growth, so i'd do a leave in with the infused water and then rinse it out. I would also look into serums that could support hair growth, I think that the ordinary has one. 

 

I'd also look into what shampoo you are using since some shampoos and conditioners can actually affect the follicle and clog it (which makes hair fall out, i'm pretty sure shea moisture has this issue with their more heavy products). Make sure you baby your hair (no intense rubbing, dont use high tight ponytails or buns, use a silk bonnet or pillow case).  You might also benefit from a rinse (like apple cider vinegar) to cleanse the scalp (prevent clogging) and a hard water filter if you live in an area with hard water. If you cant afford a water filter, then an apple cider vinegar rinse is really good 1-2x a month to just cleanse all the minerals from the hard water (this is what i do lol). I'd also make sure your shampoo isnt too harsh, but not too gentle (unless you have really thick curly hair, you probably wouldnt benefit from co-washing, I do a low-shampoo without sulphates). A rinse can help remove any build up throughout the month that your more gentle shampoo couldn't fully clean. 

 

Do you have low or high porosity hair? Do you think you might have excess protein (brittle, dry, snappy hair) or too much moisture (flat, dull, stretchy hair?). Hair type and thickness also play apart, if you have thicker or curlier hair you might need more moisture. Protein can really help the hair strengthen to reduce breakage, but if you get protein overload it causes hair breakage (its about finding a middle ground!). A good, cheap protein treatment would be fermented rice water, but its very potent so if you have low porosity hair or protein overload then dont use it too often. If your hair has protein overload, stop using protein in all products (check shampoos, conditioners, masks) and switch to deep conditioning and oil leave ins.

 

This is all just supplemental though, it can all help somewhat but you really need to ensure your diet, sleep, and stress levels promote proper hair growth.
