I’m a 50 year old Native American Indian lady living in Phoenix, Arizona and would like to know why my hair is already turning white and thinning out. I’m thinking that I may have an illness that I don’t know about. Because it seem like I’m sick all the time. I am also going through my menopause so I don’t know if that’s triggering it.
I have gone to see the doctors and they taken blood tests, but keep telling me there’s nothing to be alarm about. But the point is I’m so wary about this matter and I see alot of the people in my age group that still have a mopful of dark hair and not going gray/white. Not only this, it seems like my face has age about 10 years older within the last year or two. Am I thinking (stressing) about this to much? What type of herbs or shampoo will help my hair? Or, am I lacking some type of vitamin deficiency? I don’t mind the aging gracefully, but not this fast. Please, let me know. Thank you.
I would have to write a book on what may be the cause of your hair loss. The fact that you feel sick is an indication that something may be wrong with you (such as hypothyroidism, eczema, alopecia, dieting, malnutrition, autoimmune, drugs, infection). Considering that you are an American Indian, genetic hair loss is uncommon, so I would start looking for a medical condition. Also, I would suggest that you get your hair and scalp mapped out for miniaturization, as that may point to genetic hair loss in the case that you are the exceptional American Indian with a genetic cause of it. In non-American Indians, hair thinning is present in almost half of females going through menopause.
