Hi, i am an African American teen whose hair is shedding and i do not know why. Could gel possibly cause your hair to fall out? Like the edge of the top part of my hair is constantly getting thinner and i dont understand why this is occurring. My hair is really thick and shoulder length. Or maybe the bleach i used in october is taking my hair out, then then it could possibly be the dye i used a two weeks ago. I do not know what is going on. Yet, dr. if you know whats wrong or have any hair loss prevention tips, please let me know. Thanks for your time. God bless
ALL are possible, but there are many other reasons for hair loss. I just can’t diagnose your condition via the internet. The more junk you put on your hair, the higher the risk of hair damage, particularly bleaching or straightening compounds. It is unlikely that commercial grade hair gels will cause hair loss. If you are concerned you should see a doctor for a more complete evaluation.
