Tamoxifen and hair issues

Hi All

Is anyone having issues with their hair whilst taking Tamoxifen?  I started taking it February 2021 and since then well to put it bluntly my hair has looked sh*t!  I know lots of people have issues with hair thinning (I am noticing more hair on my hairbrush).  Under normal circumstance I have a lovely shiny chin length bob cut, but recently my hair looks like its been snapped off halfway down and sticks out everywhere.  I have tried hair masks and am seriously considering asking my hairdresser to recommend something (no doubt stupidly expensive).

Do you have any tips?

Many thanks
