i am a 23 year old woman, who has always had VERY thick curly hair. I have noticed that my hair is much thinner and requires many more wraps of the hair tie to put it up in a pony tail. I am very upset and wondered if you had any clue what is going on. I do not have a receeding hair line or anything. how stressed out does a person have to be inorder to affect their hair? thanks
The internet is no place to get a good examination of your head, scalp, and hair. A good dermatologist should be a starting point. Some people get hair changes with age that is not necessarily diseased hair, and others get hair thinning and loss from medical problems (see Female Hair Loss on this site to see other posts that reference the many medical conditions that can cause hair loss). You need a good doctor to make an assessment of you and your problem. If you have genetic female hair loss, then hair loss can be a problem anytime you experience stress.
