Exclamation Losing hair! - January 21st 2009, 09:43 AM

I used to have kinda thick (thicker than in the past anyways. xD (I used to have super thin hair when I was younger, it's just thickened out ALOT) hair, and now it's really flat and thin!! I've been losing alot of hair lately. O___o Sometimes it comes out in fistfulls! It's at the top sides near my side parts, and it's thinning at the top too. I've read at two places that hair loss doesn't occur in teens, but yet here I am having fistfulls of hair coming out, and I have no idea what's wrong! Anyone know causes and treatments or something?!

HELP?!

Could it be stress?

Maybe you need a medicated shampoo?

I don't know. I looked it up and my mom thinks it's stress and hormones. I'm going to try some stuff, hopefully it'll work.

I think you should go to your doctor, as we are not medical professionals here and therefore can't diagnose you. It could be stress-related, or it could be a number of other things; perhaps side-effects of some medication you may be on? Like i said, the only way to tell what the cause is; is by visiting your doctor and having them run some tests.
take care :]

I agree, go to the doctor- its the best way to find out!!
It could be stress, hormones etc but the only way to find out is to see your doctor
