Patient : Dear Doctor,
My Mom has been losing her hair recently since moving from California to Alabama. She claims handfuls at a time, every time she washes her hair, so she doesn't wash it that often.
She is 57 yeas old African American woman. Could it be because of her age, or because of the water in Alabama or because of a disease she doesn't know she has or something else?
