My hair stopped shedding about 6 months ago. When I’m in the shower now I get maybe 1-3 hairs on my hands between shampooing and conditioning. However, my hair definitely looks thinner at the crown and temples than it did a year ago.
My question is: Even though I’m not shedding, can the miniaturization process still be occurring and causing me to lose hair?
Here are my stats: -48 years old -noticed thinning at crown about 12 years ago
hair is now visibly thin at crown and temples. You can see scalp through the hair.
started shedding just over a year ago when urologist prescribed a testosterone booster and an AI. I quit taking them about 11 months in when I noticed shedding (10-12 hairs when I shampoo’d). I quit the meds and shedding stopped 4-5 months later.
I eat healthy, take a men’s multi vitamin and shampoo with biotin and nizoral.
I haven’t tried finasteride or min yet because I’m scared of the side effects.
Yes, you can experience miniaturization without shedding.
