Hey everyone, I'm new to this site, it seemed really informing and interesting so I decided to join. I seem to be having trouble with my hair for the past year or so. Right now I'm 16, but about 10 yrs ago when my hair was short, it was really thick and wavy hair. It would start to wave at the roots, down to the bottom. Basically, this is what it looked like. This is a picture of me of how it looked like when it was long.

I don't know what happened now, but its completely different. My hair falls out a lot more, overall it's pretty thin in comparison to before, and its usually flat and a little wavy. But the hair in the front is always straight. I've tried researching the issue regarding hair change and loss online, but haven't really come up with an answer. I've been told by my mom & her friends that they had the same thing when they were young, but no one else that I know is going through the same thing right now.

Did anyone go through the same thing? Or am I alone?
