You have to buy them yourself. It's a satanic cult I'm running not a charity.
I think i'll pass. On the horns, that is. Finally, a cult. :eek:




...and now i'm off to bed (talk about satanic!). Night 'y'all'.

Yeah well, I'm 19 and have suddenly started to sprout chest hairs. What's THAT all about? I've been able to grow a full beard since I was 16, I pretty much thought I was through with all the "new hair places" lark and I'd got away with a relatively hairless upper body, and then all of a sudden - hairy nipples. It feels like I've just hit puberty again or something. It's also upsetting. I don't want hair on my chest.

I was stressed the last time it happened; I used to pull on it myself a lot too. But this time, nothing of the sort. Again, i'm not up for the pills. But I shall see what goes, thanks.
It's surprising that you say that you're not stressed but you have been pulling your hair out in the past, which is due to a condition called trichotillomania. A lot of stressed people have difficulty accepting that they're stressed or at least are oblivious to the signs of stress. I'm talking from personal experience: people see me as a relaxed kind of person who isn't easily affected by stress but it's by always trying to stick to that image, for other people and for myself, that I was always oblivious to stress.

To be honest, the easiest way to get rid of stress is to get regular sleep, and regular exercise, which is a good start to change your lifestyle. But of course that's more easily said than done.

It doesn't sound like hereditary hairloss since you're talking about huge amounts of hair whereas people who are destined to go bald usually lose their hair more gradually. You probably already know if there's a history of hairloss in your family...

If it goes on for much longer, I will go and see the doctor.




The former is a possibility, the latter...definitely. I've always lacked iron. Gah =/ I don't want to take pills, I did for a while but I got a kidney infection which my doctor put down to the iron pills.
Hey, Sorry to hear bout this. One good way to get lots of iron into you with out taking pills is to eat alot of red meat. I do and I have the most iron rich blood the nurse testing me has ever seen!! lol!

Don't laugh, because it's not funny.

For a couple of weeks now, i've been bathing/showering and finding chunks of my hair just come out in my hand. I mean chunks. I wake up and find my pillow covered; i brush it and it sticks to the back of my shirt. If I didn't have really thick hair, I swear i'd have patches but *touches wood* i've been lucky so far.

I wanted to know if anyone knows anything I could take that is meant to help prevent hair loss or any ointment, for instance, that I can massage my head with. See, I suffered like this a couple of years ago, told the doctor, had all the tests done at the hospital, only to get told I was just stressed out and needed to relax. So I don't want to go through all that again and make a fool of myself. I'm not stressed about anything, before someone suggests it. Though i've been feeling a lot more tired and lacking energy lately, if that has anything to do with anything.

[/rant over]
Wigs are wonderful things! :p:

Yeah it is best to see your doctor. There are some inherited conditions where you begin to loose your hair at your age but if that was the case you would probably be aware of family members that had the same problem. It's probably just some kind of deficiency.

I've never heard of the condition but i'll look into it. Thank you. It's definitely not hereditary; everyone in my family has really healthy hair growth.

And you guys, stop talking about chest hair :eek: :ahhhhh: :puke:

Anaemia can cause hair loss and tiredness. I went to the doctor because my hairdresser said that it might be that (she suffered from it with that symptom), but mine just turned out to be a severe allergy.

It keeps going forever, does odd hair growth. This can be seen in the fact that old men have hair growing out of their ears. Now that's just... disgusting. My dad's starting to get ear hair.

Heeey, that gives me an idea! Everyone can shave off their unwanted hair and give it to certain people who's hair is falling out.... and they can glue it to their head. Imagine it - an entire wig made out of old man ear hair.

Well so far that seems to be the only explanation. I tried to book with the doctors today but no appointments until next wednesday and i'm off to University on thursday so I won't have the time. >.<

Personally, I'd quite enjoy a pubic wig. A wig made out of pubic hair that is, not... a wig for the pubic region. Though now that I mention it...

take a look at this.

Also whilst looking for that one I found an absolutely priceless picture, here. It's the expression on the guy's face that does it.

Grrr :mad:

Can't get an appointment with the doctor just yet, so i'll have to wait and see what happens. It's still pretty bad, though, won't stop falling, albeit slowly.
