Do you mean your pubic hair fell out? All of it?

Did you wash yourself with Nair by accident?

When you say all, do you mean ALL? I lose tons of the hair on my head, especially in the shower, when my thyroid is whacked.

This would be a good time to contact your doctor. Practical jokes aside, losing all one’s hair at a go is indeed a medical issue best handled by professionals.

Thryoid problems usually result in Head hair loss…you need to call a doc asap! This sounds serious!

It maybe different reasons. It may be due to stress, hormones or genetic.

The women in my family lose their hair. And it’s already begun for me and I am 28. It’s a horrifying prospect to think that as a woman, one day you will be sporting bald patches.

If it’s not genetic, you should be able to do something about it. Visit your doctor and get some advice.

The only person I know who lost all of his hair quickly was a kid I went to high school with when he had scarlet fever as a younger child. He never had hair again.
