Hair Shedding and feels "prickly" at roots1. Each symptom in as much detail as possible. -- Scalp/ Hair feel 'abnormal'. Noticing little salt-like granuals coming out of my skin pores- especially on chest area, shoulders and face--and in various follicles of my hair. When hair falls out, often it has a little white bulb attached to it-- feels like hard wax- almost like an a little egg. When I touch the roots of my hair now, it feels 'prickly'-- and the way my hair 'normally' falls, the hair line-- seems to be completely 'gone.'. Its' as if the hair is growing back in at the wrong angle- super fine and thin at the root- but with that hard, gritty feeling at the scalp. My scalp often feels 'tight' - especially at the crown area. Sometimes 'needle-like' sensation comes up- then often notice hair will fall.
2. Where each symptom is located-- Scalp and Hair Texture
3. What first started it off -- First noticed more hair shedding about 1.5 yrs ago. Thought it might be food related allergy, as I tend to have a sensitive digestive system. Did have hair extensions in my hair too- which I now highly regret. The taking out part, I fear, may have damaged the root follicles. But the strange 'prickly'/ sharp feeling of my hair at the roots has only been noticable over the last month or so.
4. When it's worse - Not washing it for more than 2 days seems to accelerate the hair loss.
5. When it feels better-- A few hours after washing my hair--
6. Your sleep pattern and details of any recurring dreams--Lately, have difficulty getting myself to bed before midnight or 1am. Get about 8 hours of sleep/ night but still very 'groggy' upon waking. Last few nights have had a 'police officer' figure in my dreams-- often though cannot recall dreams.
7. What you are sensitive to-- Cold Weather, Loud Noises, Arguing People, Sugar, Crowds of People
8. Your state of mind-- Extreme Indecisiveness, Anxiety over Hair Loss/ --at times 'paralyzes' me that it may never grow back 'normally', Apathetic, Obsessive Compulsive Tendencies, Often Depressed (about state of my hair right now) Self-Conscious. Remorseful.
9. Any desires or aversions for particular foods - Hate the taste of coconut(shredded -- tho coconut water is ok) - Dislike highly greasy food, Feels somewhat addicted to coffee, sugar, and salty food. Enjoy breads too but try to avoid. Not a big meat eater- but do eat chicken more often than not. Not a big water drinker- have to force myself to drink 'enough' daily. Eating-in general has been a source of 'anxiety' lately as well. Seem to have this 'binge eating' feeling come over me- especially toward evening hours-- once I start- very hard to stop-- which is not like me at all.
10. Details of any major diseases suffered in past.-- Had a kidney problem at birth. Was corrected with surgery. Severe Bronchitis about 4 years ago.
11. Details of any reactions to other medicines taken. -- Sulfa (it was years ago-- not sure if that was the name)
12. History of homeopathic treatment if any- none
13. All other symptoms you have- Cold hands/feet. Swelling in feet lately. Legs feel 'heavy'. Mental Fogginess- especially in morning.

Also, Do you have any suggestions as to how to strengthen the hair that I do have? To help stop it from breaking so easily?
And, I notice little red spots all over me as well- almost like little blood spots- a few on my scalp as well. Any idea what is causing it? And what would help stop them?
What remedy would help with the 'binge eating' symptom? Craving Sugar/ carbs, etc?
