Not your imagination! I am convinced that the hair on top of Shama's head grows more slowly than the hair elsewhere (e.g., on her back and legs). This is why it dismays us every time we discover she's managed to pull out a little hair from the top of her head. We imagine she's saying, "Ha! Just try to attach a cute little hair clip to that BALD SPOT!" She rubs her head on the bars of her ex pen in an effort to remove clips and (seemingly) to scratch her head when she has no clips in, but we don't think that's how she manages to actually tear hair out. We think she does that in her travel crate because she makes a lot of noise in there, digging and moving around, but we can't figure out exactly how she does it. It may be related to the hook for attaching her collar to keep her in place. We don't use that hook, and, in theory, we've tucked it out of her way ...
