Experienced hair fall. Some peach fuzz growing in forehead. Is the lost hair coming in same follicle?

Hi, i am 24 year old male. My hair was very thick 4 years back. As I was in hostel, I lost most of it. But from the past one year, I really took great care of my hair, by washing it frequently. Few months back, I saw some peachfuzz on my forehead , the area where my hairline starts and some of them grew as a mature hair. My question is that are these peach fuzz growing on all of my scalp? The hair which I lost is coming back from the same follicles? If not, what should I do to get the lost hair back. PS, I don t want to use minoxidil or Propecia or Rogaine. Thank you

Hi !

Thank you for your query.

I think you suffered from telogen effluvium which can be caused by sudden stress on body . Yes hair may grow back after eradication of stressor.

Please consult a trichologist for complete evaluation.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer.

Wish you good health.
