    Yes, your hair is thinning, no doubt about it.

    Is there a way I can reverse this ? Because I went to a pharamacist and they told me they donít see anything wrong with it and it could be that my hair is just short on that area and because my hair is dark compared to my skin so you can easily see my scalp

    You look, from what I see in your photos, to be suffering from Telogen Effluvium (Google it). It has a number of causes. A pharmacist is not trained to diagnose, and should NOT be offering ANY advice (or any other employee).

    Go and see a doctor, this is not normal for someone your age, it has nothing to do with hair length or color.

    Once you get a diagnosis, you will have a better idea of if it can be reversed.

    Best of luck
