hair loss
Hi! I'm 19 and I've been experiencing major hair loss for over a year now.I dont believe its stress related and I know for sure that its not bcoz of an iron defficiency.Surprizingly tho,I havnt noticed any baulding.My hair does appear to be alot thinner.I've noticed white bulbs on my scalp/attached to the root.U've mentioned that Barley Green is good for hair loss.I cant seem to find it anywhere.I'v come across a product called Herbal Green that contains barley grass.Wud it suffice?I would really appreciate some advice with possible causes and cures.-I have really long hair<down to my thighs>

Jo, it’s difficult to say what the problem is from this side of the screen. It might be due to a form of eczema or psoriasis, or even an underlying systemic disorder. It is most probably just a “phase” or cycle that you’re going through, but I can’t guarantee it without examining you first. The best would be to see a dermatologist and have it sorted out. Good luck.
