My barber has recently noticed thinning hair. It is in an oblong patch about four inches side-to-side and two inches front-to-back directly on top of my head between the ears. It corresponds directly to the size, pattern, and position of where my Respironics Comfortlite 2 headgear rests.
Since baldness does not running in my family and the patch does not appear to be male pattern baldness, I've been told that minoxidel would not be an appropriate treatment.
I am curious what steps you took and if they were successful.
I too have noticed breakage at the back - crown- part of my head. I thought it might be stress etc but I have taken measures to reduce my stress level but there is no change in hair growth in that area. I have used every hair product that's supposed to help with damaged hair to no avail. I'm at my wits end. Anyone have a solution?
