View Full Version : hair thinning near hairline or forehead

May 24th, 2008, 08:09 AM
I have noticed this week that I have this problem. Could it be due to post pregnancy hair shed that is still going on ( when baby is close to 6 months old)? What can I do to prevent more of this and to help correct it? It's not visible when I wear my hair parted in the middle but when I pull part back in a clip it shows. Thanks for any advice! Should I be taking some vitamins to help with this? Anybody have any ideas? I am only 24 so I dont want this to be an ongoing thing.

I lost a lot of hair in that area when my son was 3 to 6 months old. Then it started to grow back slowly. I remember joking about it at the time, but I had actual bald patches on my hairline, at the temples. It did grow back slowly, but I think it took a good 6 months before it looked okay to me.

As far as I know, I've always had a hairline that started about the middle of my head....okay, that's a slight exaggeration, but I can't stand the way I look from the side with my hair pulled back. ICK!
