Things to know: I am on accutane at the moment and noticed that my hair is thinner while on the medication. Overall though i have thin hair naturally. I have noticed my hair falling in the shower. (maybe 20 strands) But i am more worried about my crown. I have always had a cowlick but i think its getting thinner. Could this be the accutane or is this normal? IMG_5088.jpgIMG_1845.jpg

Brother the only way to tell would be to stop Accutane for awhile and see how things pan out. I doubt you want to do that though. I think the flash plus your jet black hair make it appear worse than it is. Getting a hair cut would make it look a lot better. If you do have male pattern baldness, crown lose is pretty easy to treat.

Yeah this is my second course and i have noticed that my hair is so dry and thinner while on accutane, but my treatment is almost done thankfully. I hopefully think its just the medications side effect and it subsides after my course. I do notice in the shower i probably lose about 20 hairs daily, is this normal? :wow:

Some people lose 10 and still go bald others lose 50 and they are fine. You can only base it on finding miniaturized hairs on your head.

If i lost only 20 hairs per day id never lose density in my life.

Im also taking accutane again but maybe i stop it because dont want to risk it with hair. The sebum works as a moisturizer and this causes the hair to weaken and break and look thinner or more unhealthy...

What does did u do? I was advised microdose 10 mg every 2 days...
I took accutane for 6 months in 2013 60mg ed for six months. I got really bad Telogen Effluvium but recovered
