Hi guys,

For the past 4-5 months I have had a s***load of shedding every single day. I mean, I run my fingers through my hair and I can see strands on them and if I just lightly stroke my hair I can see strands falling. I wake up and see 5/6 strands on my pillow, I take a shower and lose at least 40 strands of hair. Putting gel on I can see 5/6 strands on my hands. It's really unbearable.

I had VERY thick hair throughout my childhood, so much so that I couldn't sport some styles. That's all gone now and I'm really worried because my hair is my best feature so you can imagine how I'd look without it.

Here are the pictures...


The hair is a lot finer than it was before and as you can see from the sides people can clearly see my scalp.

Please help.

Judging from your hairline and crown I would say that you aren't experiencing MPB. I can see that your sides look thin. You should look into Telogen Effluvium which can be triggered by a number of things and is usually temporary.

Does MPB run in your fam? You should check with a specialist. Thickness or hair line and crown patterns don't mean shit. I never had a pattern but once my hair started shedding I got ****ed. My hair still has not receded but i have diffuse thinning. I've lost a shit load of hair now after 5 yrs and getting bald, now showing a pattern. You need to find out what it is quick so you can start doing something about it asap. Hopefully it's not MPB buy try to find out soon.
