Hey I’m sixteen years old (male) and I have extremely abnormally thin hair. My hairline is normal with no receding at all. The top is thin enough where I can see my scalp. The only way to describe it is that it looks more or less like skinny strips of no hair. That is not terrible but on the back of my head, it is as if I am balding because I have a gigantic strip of scalp going horizontally on my crown. I’ve been like this for about 8-9 years and I haven’t noticed any hairloss in that time because my hair has stayed the same. I had normal hair when I was a child though. My dermatologist prescribed olux-e, but it doesn’t do anything. Any help please?
Very fine-haired individuals always have a see-through look and the scalp can be easily visualized, especially under certain lighting. That is not a disease, it is just the way you were born.
If you think that this is not normal, see a good doctor who will judge what you have and make a diagnosis if there is something wrong with you. Perhaps the dermatologist you saw didn’t fully understand the issue you were having, as I don’t know why you were prescribed Olux-E unless you had psoriasis or some other skin condition.
