Hi! I need some help! I am still going through the shedding process. Still have about 30% of the hair on my head but losing it quickly. My eyelashes have been falling out at a rapid pace but I noticed this morning, some little black ones coming back in. Has this happened to anyone else? I am wondering if I should be hopeful about it.

Normally when hair grows back, it comes in as vellus hair (white soft type hair).  I am concerned that those dark hairs may be exclamation hairs.  Which are hairs that stop growing very suddenly and (like their name suggests) look like exclamation marks.  

I would also like to add you should always be hopeful....this condition is very unpredictable.

My derm thinks differently and says it is new eyelash growth. And that the shedding is almost necessary for new growth to take over! I so hope she is right
