From what you describe I agree with you that your hair loss does not seem "androgenetic" which is the only type of hair loss that consistently responds to PRP. It sounds like you are describing a type of hair loss called "scarring alopecia" which is actually a group of disorders. These problems are not common and sometimes can only be diagnosed with biopsy.
