The hair loss forum section is dedicated to addressing general questions regarding hair loss disorders, hair loss conditions, and hair loss patterns. Questions regarding Hair Loss Products would be better addressed in that section.
I believe my thinning hair may be due to excessive combining and hair gelling. I believe this because the areas where my hair is thinning are the spots where I have cowlicks and I've always had difficulty styling these areas. As a result I over do it and spend too much time trying to style it just right. Recently I noticed the hair thinning in these areas. If my belief is true, the question I have is whether this damage can be reversed if I cease the excessive combing and gelling? Is it possible for hair to regrow in full in these areas. Is there anything I should, besides going easy on the combing? Thanks in advance for any advice you may have.
it is very very very unlikely that your styling has caused the hair loss unless chemicals or heating was used. it most likely is something else like natural male pattern baldness or telogen effluvium. the best thing to do is to check with a dermatologist for a careful evaluation. best, sml
Even i had the same problem few years before. I was very tensed regarding this. But after that i had consulted a good dermatologist and now everything is fine. Now i don't go through that trouble anymore.
