| | Help! Hair loss in clumps with brown gunk at root
HELP!! I'm a healthy 38 year old woman with no other symptoms. Early this week i saw clumps of hair in my brush and the thing that's really WEIRD ... is that IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE USED MOLASSES TO HOLD THE ENDS TOGETHER AT THE ROOT ... in other words, for about a good inch or more, at the root where it's held together, there is this brown gunk covering the hair and holding it together in a clump! It looks moist and sticky, but when you grab it between your fingers at that spot, the brown gunk just crumbles up and falls away to a fine powder and that whole section just disintegrates! I can't find anyone else who has had this problem. It happened 2 days this week and my scalp is not itchy or red or sore or raw.
