Race: I think, seriously, that you should ask a really high reputation hair dresser this question and if not satisfied then sit with your pcp for a discussion. Thyroid gland can cause hair changes as well as hormonal changes. Hereditary history is important! most likely it is just the way your genes were programed! you will for sure have many compliments! hair dressings abound for dry hair!

Doctor can evaluate: For unusual changes in hair texture or quantity, a primary care doctor can evaluate first, and then may refer to a dermatologist to check the hair, plus may have an endocrinologist look for hormonal causes of hair problems. If a person's whole family has the same type of hair changes, then the changes could be normal for that family, but an evaluation is still worthwhile.
