How do you help hair loss?

Hello, I was just recently diagnosed with lupus and this is all very overwhelming. Immediately after being diagnosed I noticed my hair on the front and sides of ear were falling. I went to a dermatologist and she injected cortisone: prednisone (sorry, but I was so desperate that I really didn’t care what she injected) I know that’s horrible. But, I guess this is my state of mind at this point. 
Can anyone give suggestions on what to do? How to help with hair loss? It’s such a trivial thing, and I feel as though we’re ”attached” to how we look with hair. It makes me very upset to think this way. But, again I’m juts desperate and need guidance.

    When I was in a flare, I had to just put away my brush. The more I brushed, the more that came out. I have really curly hair and it went straight during that period of my life. It was scary. I started taking biotin and it helped some! Something is better than nothing they always say. One thing that made a big difference was I started using a lot of different items from Arbonne's Nutrition line and their hair care line.

    I received injections, took biotin, bought special shampoos and conditioners but eventually I lost the sides and it started thinning— diagnosed as alopecia. Also caused by lupus

    im 20 and I was just recently diagnosed with lupus. In the beginning my hair was long and thick and by the time I was diagnosed I lost a lot of it. I didn't go bald but it was gonna get to that point. I finally got my lupus under control and my hair Is starting to grow back. I lost so much that I can't wear my hair down. I miss wearing it down but when I look at it down I just get depressed. I miss my old hair. I know it will eventually be back but its hard to go out everyday and see girls with long lushes hair and I don't.
