Androgenic alopecia is a common form of hair loss and typically occurs in M shaped pattern. In your case, it can be androgenic alopecia or traction alopecia.
Medicines which are useful are minoxidil and finasteride. But if the hair follicles have damaged, then medicines are not useful. Finally one can resort to hair transplantation also. Please discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist.
Hope it helps .Take care and please do keep us posted in case you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
actually I dont think my hair follicles is damaged till my hair cant grow It is growing just at a very slow rate,there are minor hair growing,and I dont really know If I have it and besides I have full hair at my crown of my head It is just the forehead part where minor hair is growing,It may be due to the hair getting pull to make into a bun,but Im just wondering why is the hair growth slower on my forehead is slower then my back growing hair.
