Hello! I keep combing through here to find someone who also has had baby fine hair since childhood. It's been this way since I was a kid, my mom has it, and now as I enter my mid 30's, it's getting worse. It's as if after the age of about 4 it stopped getting thicker and stayed in this baby fine state ever since. **Does anyone know the correct term for this type of hair? It would be really useful to search the forums/web for solutions or shared experiences if we had a common name, but I can't seem to find one . While I didn't experience the trauma that I'm sure comes along with sudden hair loss after living life with a full head of hair, this has been a painful experience as well, and I don't feel like it's as commonly addressed. When I was a kid I really didn't mind, but somewhere around 4th grade it started to make me feel like I was different, and by 6th grade I was getting made fun of at school. My hair is baby fine like, you can see my scalp, like my hair elastic pony tail is minuscule, like I'd rather avoid the beach even though I love the ocean, like wind is the bane of my existence, like I refuse to go to a salon anymore because my last few experiences were humiliating. If you think you've are the same boat as me, let's follow each other on here and create a support within this already supportive community. There's nowhere I can speak openly about these issues except for on this forum, and even though I get few responses to my posts, it still feels good to be able to get it all out.
