Long story short. My hairs been both, falling out as well as breaking severely for a few months now. I'm 19, female. Hairloss does NOT run within my family although my mom lost about 85-90% of her hair at the age of 51 she was severely stressed and was in a bad state and she also never ate. Her hair grew back eventually. My dads fine and so are my grandparents on both sides. The first time I had extensive hair loss, like complete breakage of my hair was in my grade 9 year. I lost half of my hair mass due to straightening it everyday for years. I cut out straightening completely and my hair grew back and I had really thick hair all of highschool and up until this year, I suppose. I can say that the past year has been severely stressful as well as psychologically stressful for me, especially the months of July to September. My diet is also crap because I've developed depression and anxiety as well which kills my appetite. I read that hair loss can be caused by stress and is called telogen effluvium. I'm not sure if that is what I have. I went to the doctors and got a blood test done. It came back fine and my doctor told me I might have a scalp infection ("might" helps a lot right?) and he told me to buy nizoral shampoo. It's not been helping. I'm not sure what to do. I don't want to go bald. I hope I don't have alopecia thou I'm not sure what causes it. Ughh
