Hello Dr. Rassman,
First I want to excuse for my not-so-good English.
I am a 23-year-old male. About 2 years ago I noticed my hair thinning all over the top of my head and the hairline slowly eroding away from its original position. I’ve been on finasteride for about 20 months.
Anyway, I’ll get straight to the problem… About half a year ago I noticed strange-looking random hairs on the top of my head. My natural hair colour is dark brown, but mentioned hairs are ebony black. Not only that, but they are at least twice thicker and very wiry. They are easily noticeable, because they don’t mix with my normal hair when combing. Even though my hair is around 3” in length, they stand there almost vertically, slightly curled up.
As I mentioned, 6 months ago they were just some couple of random hairs. Lately I have noticed more and more of hairs like that sprouting up. They look nothing like my hair. In fact, they don’t look like human hair at all. At least not the kind you’d expect one to have growing on his head.
I’m really clueless as to what is going on with me. I have tried searching all over the Internet. I have found people with similar problems, but no one really knows what they are about.
Perhaps You can help me.
Hmm… so you are saying you have non-human like hair growing on your scalp? Is there a correlation with a full moon? Do you have an urge to howl?
Sometimes hairs can have different textures and there may be no direct reason for this. Maybe it is hormonal. I do not know. If you’re concerned, you should see a doctor about it.
