I really really hope someone can help. Around 2 years ago i noticed a small patch of hair missing along the front right of my hairline when i had my hair tied back. I left it for a few months slowly noticing it was getting wider. My hair was also thining around my temples. I went to the doctor and was prescribed a steroid cream to rub where my hair had fallen out. It didnt help at all. Then i realised i was getting the same patch on the left side of my hairline, and i noticed hairs falling out more. Everywhere id been you would find hairs. The rest of my hair has thinned but nothing noticeable, its only around the hairline. Where i have visible snapped hairs which will then fall off. I always have to wear my hair down, but worry what i will do when i cant hide it anymore. It is making me so depressed, i am only in my early 20's, and have always associated balding with older people mostly male. I changed my contraceptive pill about 8 months ago as i wondered if that could be part of the problem, but it hasnt helped in any way. Generally im always tired and dont have much energy, but i put that down to having a young child. I dont drink but do smoke (trying to quit). I eat fairly healthily. I have tried taking hair and nail supplements but they didnt seem to do much. There is probably not much i can do to the hair thats lost, but i really hope someone can give me advice to stop anymore from falling out.
