Hairloss/thinning From Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i've just finished my first week of month 3 on accutane.

My hair seemed fine (just a bit dry) until my haircut 2 days ago. My hairdresser decided to use the thinning scissors and left my front uneven in thickness. After showering, I noticed that my scalp became a lot more visible just above the middle of my hair line.

I'm not too sure whether i am experiencing hairloss or rather my hairdresser overly thinned my hair, because my hair was fine the day before. When i brush my hand across, I feel alot of short hair sticking out (probably after thinning) and I also still see alot of strands of hair, and have not experienced any extra shedding.

As silly as this may sound, am I going bald? I'm 17 and really don't want to experience this so early.

Are there any symptoms that I should be looking for to know whether i'm losing hair from accutane since i haven't experienced any mass shedding in the showers?
