Hair root abnormality
This is one of many hair roots that are abnormal. Over 50% of my hair when pulled from my scalp have what appears as a snake shaped root. Many have white matter around them like little worms. Both the hair root and white matter move on its own very slowly. I have video to confirm this and have repeated it many times. I desperately need help. For a hair root to change into this format, does that mean my DNA has been overwritten?
