Losing hair in vertical stripes?

Answered on August 19, 2014

My hair has been gradually thinning the past few years and I really haven't paid much attention to it. I recently buzzed my head though and after doing so realized I'm losing my hair in vertical stripes on my head. Literally about 5 vertical stripes of hair on my head and in between each is some hair loss, it looks very strange. I dont know if I would call it patchy or not, but it doesn't really look normal.

Has anyone ever heard of this or the possible cause? Is this just some kind of common way men lose hair? I've never really seen anything like it.

I've read things to suggest fungi can also mess up your hair. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15325014 Might be worth looking into if it's not simple clipper error or MPB.

This may just be caused by dull clipper blades. It can give the stripe-y look you are describing. Try going to a barber to have it blended in. The barber can also give you a better idea if this was caused by bad clipper blades.

You want to see a dermatologist. You Probably don't have this but certain bacteria like Syphilis cause this type of unexplained hair loss.
