    Default weak hair

    what do you think it means if your hair keeps breaking off. ive been searching but not really finding anything.

    like trying to pluck eyebrows etc, and instead of coming out the hair breaks instead.

    I had huge issues with my hair about 5 yrs ago, not only was it breaking off like crazy it was falling out too! Dr. Said it was stress. I didnt beleive that, but good luck trying to find a ligitimate med opinion around here!

    I had an issue with hair falling out a few years ago. It was completely stress related and happened just after my ex-husband had left. Probably didn't help that I had lost a lot of weight at that time. It took about nine months for the hair to stop falling out.

    If you don't already, try taking a daily multivitamin just to boost the nutrients your body is getting. If you are already doing that, then maybe you should see a doctor. There look to be some serious diseases or hormonal imbalances that can cause hair breakage from a quick Google search.

    My daughter had that problem and it was stress, and her doctor also ran blood work, and found she was very deficient in B12. She gets the B12 vitamins in shots (needles) now. It seems to have slowed down, how much she was losing.

    try using biotin as well, there is a biotin shampoo that may help, go to a health food store they may have suggestions as well
    If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.

    Is it just your eyebrows? or you hair too? If you use plastic hair elastics (for ponytails) that can cause your hair to break as well.

    it is often caused by stress or a change in diet.
