In brief: Can take 6 months

Hair growth and loss goes in cycles.
Any change in thyroid level can take 6 months to show a difference in hair growth or loss. Remember that hair naturally thins as we age in everyone, including women, so you should not expect to have the amount of hair you had 5-10 years ago
