My hair loss seems to be fully in this pattern now - gone above both ears and down around the bottom of my hair line.  I'm missing about 2.5 inches from the bottom up.  I wanted to ask, does anyone…Continue

Anyone tried LDN? I read good things about it.

Now I may be wrong but it seems that my scalp doesn't like grey hairs. I have become convinced that when a hair goes grey its days are numbered. Has anyone else noticed that grey hairs fall out while healthy hair stays put. Most people don't want to go grey but I'd sure rather that than bald, which is where I seem to be going. I'm 66 and I'm entitled to go grey, or so I thought.

I had been trying not to obsess about my hair for a while so I stopped checking. But I was quite discouraged to see a chunk of my hairline missing when I put my hair up a few days ago. I hate that there's no rhyme or reason. I am shedding a ton of hair when I bathe but it seems to be coming from all over. Shrugs, who knows what's brewing up there...! Lol!

No, my ophiasis just started on the nape of my neck.  I think when I started to shed heavily, mostly it was the nape area that probably was shedding, until I lost it all.  The back of my neck is totally absent of hair, and it is rising higher and higher also going up above my ears.  Nice, huh?  But the rest of my hair is just plain overall thinning in general.  Every day it seems, more and more lately.  Only a matter of time when wigs are going to be a requirement.  Every day. Read what Sunflower said.  Same thing.

How did your ophiasis pattern begin? I have previously had random spots all over my head that have come and gone. But I hadn't had any new spots crop up for months. In fact they were all growing in. But I noticed a new spot, right on the nape of my neck. Just a chunk missing and it's all stubbly which is how my loss always begins.

curly1982 Welcome.  Saw your pics...hey, the back of your head looks just like mine.  Maybe mine is even smoother.  Sucks, right?
