This is consuming my life, and I need to find resolution. I am writing to get opinions on my situation. My general doctor and a hair specialist told me that I am not suffering from hair loss. (DHT levels normal/no hair fallout) When my hair was damaged by the sun and water in another country and I cut my hair short, I discovered the "cowlick." I went on Finasteride and Nizoral shampoo for 8 months (stopped one month ago and no new hair fallout), but I did not experience any new growth; I simply needed to let my hair grow and cut off damaged ends. Now it has returned to completely normal, healthy hair. However, I am still worried that my "cowlick" is actually the beginning stages of hair loss. I have no hair loss on my temples; my mother's father, my mother, and my uncle have similar, thick hair. My mother and both grandmothers have similar cowlicks. Normally I part my hair on the other side of my head and brush and blow-dry my hair down and through the cowlick to make it disappear. The way the hair is in this photo is not very attractive, but when I part it like this it is easier to manage and the cowlick blends in, allowing my part to be seen. Does it like I am experiencing hair loss to you? Should I get back on finasteride and Nizoral?
