Thinning Hair...

I have had problems with thin hair (just on the top) for years, but lately it seems to be getting worse.

My boyfriend even made a comment to me last night..."your hair seems so much thicker in old pictures and your sisters have much thicker hair than you do." **Suffice it to say..I wanted to strangle him!! He should know better than that!

Anyway, I am really at a loss for what could be the problem and also, what can be done to remedy this situation.

Again, my hair is especially thin on the sides and on the very top of my head. When wet, almost looks like bald spots that can get covered with my hair drys and "thickens" up a bit.

I am really worried...any ideas?

Thank you kindly!

    Hello! I'm having the same problem. My hair is thinning right above my ears but in the front of my head, both sides. Its really noticeable when I have my hair pulled back. It doesn't seem to stop. Its been doing this for about a year now. I know this doesn't answer your question and I'm sorry but if you hear about any way to stop this problem or if you experience anything that helps can you please let me know. I'm DESPERATE! Thanks!!!!

    Hello. I'm having the same problem. My hair is thinning out right above my ears but in the front of my head. It feels like everything is getting thinner but right there is where its visually noticeable, especially when I have my hair pulled back. I've heard that it could be caused by poor circulation of blood to the scalp. I know this doesn't answer your question and I'm sorry but if u hear about anything that helps this problem or if you experience anything that works can you please let me know? I'm DESPERATE! Thanks!!!!

    Have you been diagnosed with PCOS? This sounds like male pattern baldness, which is a big sign of PCOS - I have it too. Some other signs are acne, carrying your weight mainly in your stomach/torso area, hair loss, facial and body hair, inability to lose weight.
