View Full Version : Wiry hairs growing back?

03-17-2015, 04:49 PM
So I had a huge shed accompanied by a sore scalp from November until like 3 weeks ago.. I now have calmed my INFLAMMED scalp a tad with tea tree oil shampoo, but I have like black wiry hairs growing back now along my hairline.. My hair is light brown and this is really weirding me out because I've been on finasteride for 1 year and 5 months and at the one year mark my hairline receeded with pain..

What is causing these black wiry hairs?

Many things can cause this from inflammation to medications to nutritional issues. If it is significant and/or concerning you may want to get an in person exam and blood work by a dermatologist.
