Whoa: If you are hypothyroid, it needs to be treated. Your hair loss will stop and it'll probably regrow. If you've had a lab diagnosis of hypothyroidism and are not being treated, or you have heavy hair loss from something like telogen effluvium or alopecia areata for which thyroid disease isn't the cause, get with a specialist. ...Read more

Find the cause.: Others may tell you that this is something called alopecia areata, but that usually does not last 6 years. If it has happened slowly over time, it is probably a hereditary and/or hormonal issue. Treatments are available for most forms of alopecia, once the cause is determined. See a dermatologist. ...Read more
