Okay, so late last year I used a gel in my hair, and I only used it once. Now I'm not saying I noticed my hair starting falling out at the top right after I used it, but I never had problems with hair loss before I used that gel.

I've noticed the past couple of months my hair has thinned out in the very front. The thing is though I've been getting haircuts, and the hair up front still grows, but it doesn't grow fast nor does it grow like the rest of my hair does.

Am I experiencing some type of hair loss, and if I am is there any way to get it back to normal?

  • You are going bald and it is regular Male Pattern Baldness (MPB). Go to your doctor and ask for a prescription of Finasteride ASAP, that should at least halt the loss. If you use Nizoral shampoo and Rogaine foam on top of that, your hair might even regrow quite well. But time is your enemy; the longer you wait the less hair you'll be able to save.

  • I have read in a forum that Rogaine is not safe to use...and i do think that gel might have triggered the loss of your hair or maybe your diet is not right...Diet: The healthy condition of the hair depends, to a very large extent, on the intake of sufficient amounts of essential nutrients in the daily diet. Persons with a tendency to lose hair should take a well-balanced and correct diet, made up of foods which, in combination, should supply all the essential nutrients. It has been found that a diet which contains liberal quantities of seeds, nuts, grains, vegetables and fruits would provide adequate amounts of all the essential nutrients. Each food group should roughly form the bulk of one of the three principal meals. These foods should, however, be supplemented with certain special foods such as milk, vegetable oils, honey, wheat germ, yeast and liver. Try these smple home remedies:1. Lettuce is useful in preventing hair loss. A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice is believed to help the growth of hair if taken to the extent to half a litre a day2. Mustard oil, boiled with henna leaves, is useful for healthy growth of hair. About 250 ml of mustard oil should be boiled in a tin basin. About sixty grams of henna leaves should be gradually put in this oil till they are burnt in the oil. The oil should then be filtered using a cloth and stored. Regular massage of the head with the oil will produce abundant hair.3. Daily application of refined coconut oil, mixed with lime water and lime juice on the hair, prevents hair loss and lengthens it. Application of the juice of green coriander leaves on the head is also considered beneficial. Washing the hair with a paste of cooked black gram and fenugreek lengthens the hair. Regular use of castor oil as hair oil helps the luxuriant growth of the hair. Hope this helps :)

Check out your diet and stop using hair gel for a while...it might help :D

  • Yeah,I agree with Dale, analyse your diet, keep a food diary of some sort, eat a varied diet of of fruit and vegetables.If you think you are lacking vitamins and need some useful advice, I can point you to an article on hair loss vitamins, this article splits up the vitamins you require and which food type you should be consuming. It also gives the recommended daily doses of each vitamin you should be taking. It has a major list of vitamin sources.More useful information on vitamins and hair loss can be found on this blog, http://hair-loss-vitamins.coHope this helps.Ats12:D

  • Avocados are vitamin and protein rich and also contain essential fatty acids. Peel and mash up an avocado and mix it with some olive oil. Apply this to your hair. Leave it on for fifteen minutes or so and wash it out.It will prevent your hair loss..White spots on tongue
