    My Life With Monilethrix

    I'm a 13 year old boy and have monilethrix. My dad has it, but you can't really tell because he shaves his head. My sister has it and she wears a wig. I used to get teased a lot about it, but it's quieted down since I was younger. I still get asked about my hair frequently when I...

    Living With Monilethrix

    I am 24.. soon to be 25. I have monilethrix as well. My moms side of the family does. We all vary in degrees of how bad it is. Due to surgeries i've had and major stress, it has gotten worse. It's a bummer to be in the beauty industry and knowing one day, the hair on my head...
