Re: Hairloss at 17... Help

You might try just a gentle baby shampoo. Dandruff shampoos often contain salicylates, like aspirin, and some people are allergic or sensitive to salicylates, so their shampoo actually makes it worse. If your scalp is dry, shampoo every 2-3 days. Biotin supplements are easiest to take, available OTC. If this is male pattern baldness, you probably won't be able to stop it. Rogaine for men topical solution may help keep what you have but it only works as long as you are using it. A generic is ok. I don't think length would matter too much unless hair is really long and you pull it back in a ponytail. I would not do that. You can do a test for sensitivity by putting a small dab of shampoo on inside of forearm and leave it. If it gets red or itchy, you are sensitive to it and should change.
