    I have heard that hair can fall out because of stress, when things calm back will the hair fill back in?.

    16.

    If it's due to stress, I think that it tends to fall out in patches...

    I started noticing by around 24-25. What's odd is that my hairline got a head start on my left side - when I was 10, I smashed my head into a pole, and hair never grew back on the left side of my forehead. So once the hairline started receding, the left side was way ahead of the game. It's about 2 inches farther back than the right side.

    Time to bring back the mohawk.
     
  8. 30 or so when it started, 40 when I admitted it. 41 now. Bad hair is hair that runs away from home.

    I've always had thin hair as long as I can remember. It seems to run in the family.

    44 and haven't lost any. I'm just gaining a little hair in places one generally doesn't need or want it. I guess I'm still gaining hair, not losing it...

    I have a receding hariline, but since my hair is long it's not noticable, but I think I"m going to look into some hair recession stoppping drugs. I don't want to be bald at 30!! :bawl:
