Much of my hair fallout is that the hairs don't have roots attached,, you know that little white bulb at the end. Most of the hair is just a hair with no root....sometimes its dark at the end,but mostly,,,,just a hair with nothing at the end. Is there a meaning behind this...which hair fallout mean certain things?

thanks,

OK - I'm reaching a little beyond my expertise (I am a health care professional with a little knowledge about white bulb root fall-out) - but I think some real experts will answer you here as time goes on. What I have read is that if you have the white bulb on the end of your hair - that's pretty much it. My understanding is the whole structure of the follicle is gone - and no hair product will fire it up to grow again - all you have is a dead space there with no cell structure to wake up. Every time I see some of those in my hair brush (which is almost daily) - I pretty much get sick. You are really lucky you don't have many of those coming out (and probably most people don't have a shower of them every day), but like everyone here in this forum - get very aggressive with treating your hair now and realize this is going to be a life-long pursuit until they can clone hair or genetically target your hair for re-growth (we all can hardly wait). And don't freak out if you see some white bulbs once in awhile - just get to a hair loss specialist if you see a lot of them.
