    My husband, aged 23, is losing pigment in various patches of hair and doctors haven't really been able to explain why. I'm wondering if this is something like a hair-specific vitiligo (he has that too) or signs of premature greying. He has also gone almost completely bald in one of the spots near the back of his head before but it seems to b growing back. He doesn't seem to mind any of this much but sometimes I worry that it might be something serious.

    Hi there! My name is Sonia and to me this doesn't seem like a normal case. This kind of pigmentation on your skin is quite rare and seeing as you're 16 I think you should go and see a dermatologist who I presume will give you some cream or another medical necessity that will either decrease the pigmentation or actually remove it.

    U shud see a doctor coz it cud be an allergy or some sort of inflammatory process.

    I am a 20 year old female with thinning hair, no other health problems. I have never had thick hair but it has never been this thin, and my parents said my hair was much thicker when I was younger. I have tried sea kelp and hair skin and nail vitamins from Holland and barrett but they haven’t help I have also tried alpecin shampoo and it never worked. Is there anything I can do or take to re-grow my hair I am very self conscious about it and I am worried that my hair will keep thinning. Thanks

    Hi, I am 21 and I have had a lot of hair loss of my head for a while and I have noticed my hair is a lot thinner than before and I think I can noticed my hair line thinning as well so am really worrying as do not want to go bold. I also have hair all over my body since puberty. Its not very long and thick, its short, fine hair but still noticeable and its everywhere. I haven't removed any body hair besides legs, arms and pubic areas as do not want it to get worse. I am currently having laser hair removal on my legs but not sure if it’ll work on others areas such as my stomach as is finer hair and I am Indian. Is there anything I can do? Should I consult with doctor and is there anything that can be done? Thank you

    Hi Kiran. Typically men who have high levels of the hormone testosterone generally have quite a bit of body hair. Strangely enough, the same chemical responsible for hair growth on the body can also cause hair to thin on the top of the head. The reason for this is because (for reasons still unknown to science) the hairs on the top of the head are sensitive to a chemical called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) which is a form of testosterone. What happens next is that the hairs on the top of the head tend to go into the 'sleep' stage of their development, which means that the hair follicle will only produce thin, short, pale hairs. There are many treatments for this kind of hair thinning such as Rogaine, Procepia and Growthex. For example, Growthex works by putting the hair back in to the 'growth' phase so the hair follicle start producing thicker longer hairs.

    it doesnt matter how fine the hair is, laser hair removal damages the hair follicle and prevents any more hair growing. if you go to your doctor they can discuss options with you. but i also think you should consult the doctor about the hair loss as this could be caused by a few things such as hormonal problems, so best get it checked out!

    its all good..some people like body hair too.don't try shave it as you can get in growing hairs. everyone grows at different stages in puberty. every body is different..i bet there are other guys at your school that don't even have pubes yet..it all comes good in the end.

    im a 15 year old girl and when I shave my vagina the hair doesn't completly go and my hair has spread out and when I wear pants or a bikini you can see my pubes, I also have hair on my tummy and back, the hair is really light but when I go on holiday the sun makes the hair really visible and this makes me really insecure and I don't know what to do

    I am a 17yr old female and i, like many others who have posted here, have hair ALL OVER my body. My whole leg is covered in hair, not one spot is hair less. Arms too. Facial hair is getting worse as i grow older, they are not obvious from far but if you were to be 10cm or closer to me you could definitely see those unpleasant looking growths. My body and back is also so hair. I dare say that my whole body is covered in hair, the only place that is hair-free is probably my palms and soles.. Help this makes me feel horrible. Even wearing things as simple as shorts and a shirt that has shorter sleeves is troublesome as i have to epilate constantly.. Are there any drugs or treatments i can go through?

    You may be correct that you haven't completed puberty yet, but it's also possible that you will be a guy that has very little body hair. I have a friend who is 35 years old and he has no armpit hair at all! These are just normal human variations.

    I'm a 16 year old girl and I've found quite a few white/silver roots.. I've been dying my hair since I was about 11/12 because I liked having it different colors all he time. I've bleached parts and I've used so much hair dye over the years. I'm naturally brunette but I much prefer my black hair, but as you can guess, my greying roots stand out A LOT! I've been reading through some of the comments and someone mentioned nutrient deficiency, could that cause my roots to start greying this early? I've suffered with different eating disorders since I was about 12, and I also have social anxiety and other things that mean I stress A LOT too.. My mom's almost 50 now and she didn't start greying until a few years ago.. All my moms family were in their 40's when their roots started getting grey.. I don't know about my dads, he was young when he died(I think, considering my mom was 32 when I was born).. Anyway, I've been so worried! I dye my hair a lot but they always seem visible? -- My sister is 28 and her hair has been greying since she was about 20, she also started balding.. I'm so worried! Am I going to loose my hair?! Is there any way i can stop this?! Please help!! - Thankyou.

    Hair greying is due to nutritional deficiency. Add nutritional food in the diet.

    Hi Tatiana, I totally understand how you must feel, coz i have been through premature grey hair thing just like you. I was around 14 or 15 when my hair started going grey, its a genetic thing. Those days we didn't have the internet or so much or research and technology, so the only thing i was able to do was dye my hair - I am now 55 and have been dying my hair ever since I was about 16. If you do not want to dye your hair, its probably not a good idea coz it does coz damage and hair loss, I used to have beautiful think hair as well, until i started dying it, well it wasn't until I had kids which was around the age of 26, and about a couple of years after that probably in my 30's that I started to notice the hair loss, so it does take a while for this to happen. but what I was going to suggest to you is, there might be other solutions available now, to stop the greying process if its a genetic problem. Their are alot of hair specialist out there that might be able to help you. My kids are also getting the grey hairs, daughter is around 28 and son around 23. it doesn't bother them at all, and they don't dye their hair either. Actually its not that noticeable unless you have half a head full of grey hairs, and that can take upto another 30 years. So don't worry sweetie, its not so bad. but for your peace of mind, get in contact with some hair specialists.

    SAME HERE. been greying since 13 and don't have it in my family genes. i'm depressed. i'm 17 years old and my brother, who is 29 years old, is blond nad does'nt have a singke grey hair. i feel so old and jealous, and i always walk with a jacket and the hood on. i just can't undersetand: why me? why not someone else?

    i've started to get grey patches in my hair and because i have dark hair it is shown more. i was really worried and now i think it is because of stress i was under the age of 10 when i started to get them why me??? and why so young my friends started to point it out now it makes me extremely self conscious.

    I do the same thing, I'm 22 and have been going grey since I was 13 (no men on my Dad's side of the family have made it past 25 with their original hair colour) I'm about 20% grey and just putting in some of those one wash colours can give some interesting results. If your greying its going to happen, so embrace it, thats what I say

    I started greying when I was 15, and I know I inheirited it from my Mum, who got it from Mum, and they were grey before they turned 40. I think I may have found the way to reverse this, which I found by accident. I have a skin condition, and I started taking B vitamins. Anyway, after a bit of research, I found that B vitamins that contain Biotin, B12 and PABA can start reversing the process, and with tweezers to remove the hair including the root, my hair has grown back to its original colour, which otherwise would be noticeably grey by now.

    Early greying and vitilgo (white patches on skin) are both signs of B12 deficiency, there are many more symptoms, MS type symptoms, Chronic Fatigue, RLS, ME, Fibromyalgia, dementia, neuropathy the list is endless but they creep up on you slowly. If left unchecked it can cause permanent damage or result in Pernicious Aneamia which can be deadly. I now have permanent damage aged 44 and registered disabled.

    I have been hair pulling since I was 14 I'm now 44 and only have 50% of my scalp hair and pubic hair. I eat the root once pulled out. Part off the pulled hair has grown back White/grey. My mother took me the docs when I was 15 n he sed I was just spoilt and my parents should ignore me it's now got to the point in my life where I can't cope. I keep moving to different parts of my head but now I'm struggling to keep it covered. I have no hair on top and just cover it with the surrounding hair and tie my hair up. I had the most perfect hair when I was younger in fact too perfect! I was abused when I was 13 and I think this triggered it as nobody knows except me and my hubby someone help me please !
