Over the past few months I have been getting a significant ammount of pitch black, thick, wiry/coarse hairs on my scalp. The majority of my hair is dark-ish brown, each hair is of average thickness and they are smooth. (This is occurring on my scalp only).

NOTE: They may have been there for up to a few years, because I had hair that was about 30 inches long up until a few months ago when I got a haircut, perhaps the haircut revealed them, perhaps they were new growth...I can't say.

I'm an 18 year old male, who takes no medication and I've searched extensively, but have no clue what could be causing my problem! To make this all worse, I have OCD and I'm getting to the stage where I desperately need to know why, and how to stop these hairs growing.

If you could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it greatly :).
