when i was about 12, my mother noticed a bald spot. eventually more hair began to fall out, and i lost most of the midsection of my hair. I went to see a dermatologist and she told me it was most likely due to pulling of the hair, and i had injection in my scalp, after a few months my hair successfully grew back. I regained my hair when i was 14, and now I'm 19 wondering if it could come back since i noticed thining of my hair even though my hair is never pulled.
