Female balding it’s a secret no one wants to talk about. Including me, but it’s happening to me. It happens because of stress, or hormones, or medicines. It’s embarrassing to lose hair in great mass. Even though you don’t have great bald spots I do have thinning hair it’s embarrassing. So I cut my shoulder length hair short very short. I went to the Doctor and asked for a blood test to see if my Hashimoto’s was under control and it is, and so are my hormones, so that leaves stress. How can you control your stress when our hair is falling out?
