Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, thinning hair could be due to less protein and hypo vitaminosis, some time it could be due to fungal infection, have some extra vitamin supplement and antifungal shampoo and best would be, "Selsun" shampoo stop applying any kind of hair oil, hope this information helps, take care and have a nice day.

Hello, My hairline has thin out the past year and half. Through the crown and hairline. My scalp is itchy and oily. Im in my 40s and eat a healthy diet and work out in the gym at time and walk. I take vitamins every day from a daily vitamin to Vitamin E and D. Also, I take Biotin 5000 mg daily. My hair grows fast and so does my nails. I get my hair colored every two months and get my hair cut about once a month. Is there any solution to this problem? I know many middle-aged women suffer from this thinning of the hair due to DHT or what is called Seborreheic Dermatitis which I may have. Please help. Thank you.
