    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...

    I see that others have posted about this,

    but not much seems current. I am a 34 year old female. My father was the first to express the gene. My brother and I have what I consider "moderate" expression (since I can't find a good scientific source). My son has a severe expression. He's 3, and will probably never...
