Change in Hair: One's overall health can be reflected in the hair quality. Systemic conditions like thyroid disease, anemia or nutritional deficiencies can cause change in the texture and amount of one's hair. Of course, chemicals can also affect the health of the hair, but it's safest to rule out medical causes by seeing your family physician.
