I know for a fact that at one point I was losing way more than a hundred hairs a day. As a result now I have a horseshoe hairline.

When Princess Grace of Monaco died, Princess Caroline was so inconsolable in her grief that her hair fell out, and took years to grow back.

I have a question what about changes in hair color. In my teens and early 20’s my beard was deep black. In my late twenties. t still is mostly deep black I do have red and blond hairs peppered throughout my beard Is there a reason for that to happen? To be clear I never died my beard.

What causes hair to not grow at all? I had my hair cut almost 10 years ago and it is only about 2" longer than it was then. Yes, I do tie my hair back but it isn't a "style" choice. My hair is so fine (a genetic thing, my father had the same thing), and it is because it is so short it blows around and gets in my eyes. By short I mean maybe 5" in the front and 7" in the back. Even my leg hair doesn't grow much, I only "have" to shave about every three or four months. This I don't mind at all but I do like playing with shaving cream - chuckle.

Holly Rockwell this could be a thyroid problem. My mom has severe problems with her thyroid and when she is not on her medication her hair basically doesn’t grow much if at all. You may want to talk to a doctor about it.

Well now I know why I’m a hairy beast now. I was diagnosed with epilepsy 3 years ago and I never knew why hair started growing on my chest.. 👀 it’s the seizure medication I’m taking

Thank you so much for this. I had the first condition listed here as a kid and the nurse at my grade school told us that it was from not washing enough. Shame from that encounter followed me for years. I guess we should have gone to an actual doctor instead

Each time I had move to a different country with a different climate my cells in my body mutated, and as side effects I have gained extra hair where I have never had before. It made me look more manly, so I am pretty much fine with it till women like it.

I’ve had dandruff and an itchy spot on my head. It really doesn’t respond to any shampoo and I know it’s part of a bigger thing because when it gets worse a few other areas around my body get really dry and start to itch. Wtf.

I leave the floor coated in hair wherever I go but I have a super thick coat of hair, even with shoulder length, it takes a ton for it to dry
It's been months like this and no notorious change, but as the video says, probably has to do with Ballet hahah

Hmm, didn't hear it mentioned that a persons' thyroid may be out of balance, or there's a nutritional/vitamin deficiency .

My mom has alopecia, and she has no hair at all.
I was wondering, is it genetic?

Shedding more frequently can also be caused by thyroid imbalances

Going through the ninth month of tellogen effluvium, the hair has still not recovered. I've learned my lesson with stress.

"menopause can affect someone's..." you can tell "menopause can affect a woman's..." is being avoided, because men can undergo menopause now.

One time I suddenly developed alopecia barbae which caused a small, circular bald spot in my beard (which was still visible even after shaving because it was completely hairless) and it was caused by stress and went away after a while.

Nicely explained, but what causes premature greying of hair, can that be treated? I have seen even the 5 years old kids start to have grey hair.. is it all diet dependent?
Nishant Sengar
Nishant Sengar - 10 months ago
@gingergamergirl98 I thinks it's more to do with your diet, especially if it lacks vitamin b6, b12 and D..

Too many comments way funnier than me :) Thank you Sci, this happens to the best of us and shouldn't be feared. I had a severe health thing, three months later my hair fell out, three months after I am back to normal. Well, normalish :)
Talk to your doc, and we dont judge.
