Actress January Jones Says Her Hair Is Falling Out - ABC News

I thought this was really interesting in connecting dyes/chemicals and sudden extreme hair loss. Four years ago my hair abruptly started falling out in clumps. The derm said I had alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease, but my mom swore up and down it was because of the hair dresser overprocessing my hair. I had got a relaxer two weeks earlier. My hair was always slow to break down so the stylist would leave the relaxer on longer. But I sided with the doc because my scalp in my bald patches was smooth, not burned. Although I've plenty of burns over the years. I have had dye to break my hair off but I never knew excessive dying could make your hair fall out in clumps. As mentioned in the video fine hair which doesn't do as well with chemicals. I've got fine hair and on top of that it's low porosity.
