We always think of baldness as a man thing and it's not. Many women also suffer hair loss for many reasons - it could be hereditary, a thyroid problem, vitamin deficiency or alopecia, amongst others.
Children also suffer from hair loss due to alopecia and a little known disorder called Loose Anagen Syndrome that usually targets young white girls between the ages of 2-5 who have platinum blonde hair. It is not considered to be genetic and can cause permanent full baldness or the syndrome can disappear within 5-10 years.
I'm wondering if any women (or their children) suffer baldness for any reason and how do you cope with it?
