How long is the hair at this point ... PM me if you'd like .. my daughter had a bad case of alopcia when a toddler .. I may be able to help you with your description, etc.
I just noticed in my part, I part my hair in the middle, and there are some hairs sticking up about 1/2 inch. I did have very dry brittle hair before I stated using Nioxin. So it is possible it is breakage.
If your hair was damaged it mostly likely is breakage.
Usually new growth will start - especially with Nioxin at the temples for back of the head.
