Patient :For about 6 months now my hair has been falling out, not in patches but in an overall thinning, but in the last month or so it has gotten worse. i'm losing around 400 to 500 hairs a day, mostly when in the shower, brushing or blow drying my hair. it's to the point where i can just tug gently on the end of a section of hair and pull out almost the equivalent of that section. there are little white bulbs on the end of all the lost hair strands, my hair feels weaker and is consistently more oily than it's ever been. i am stressed a lot, but have been for a long time and this has never happened. what is wrong? what can i do to fix it?
