    Hello everyone,
    I’m 17 years old and I already have quite a hair story.

    I noticed my first white hair at 16, but since it was quite long it was probably there since I was 15.

    More white hairs started appearing and, at the same time, I noticed tremendous hair loss and even change in texture.

    My hair used to be shiny and had a slight wave at the bottom and now it looks as it has no protein and worse elasticity being completely flat.

    This hair changes are very scary. I not only have hair loss but also white hair.

    I always had seborrhoea dermatitis but I don’t think it is a cause because in my case the symptoms are not very noticeable besides having a sensitive scalp.
    It also looks as if I have no hormones or tiroid problems.
    My recent blood test showed no anemia and low ferritin levels (8mg).

    Do you think this could have been the cause? Are the white hairs and hair loss reversible in my case?

    I’m so hopeless. I treat my hair decently well with no heat styling or strong hair dyes. I’m disappointed this is happening to me and sad about my appearance.

    Hello, your ferritin is very low. Talk to your doctor about taking iron supplements. My ferritin was at 6, and I began taking iron 3x/day. Within a few months, the shedding was less. I've read that you need to have ferritin levels of 80+ for optimum hair growth. Good luck.
