See a dermatologist: Hair loss can be attributed to many causes (e.G, cosmetic treatments, medications, genetics, hormonal status, nutritional status, etc.). A dermatologist will be able to exclude many of these cause and may be able to help you determine what is the underlying cause the loss of hair density.

Over treatment: You over treated hair with too many chemicals as same time. Topical prescription steroids can decrease inflammation and allow regrowth. This will require a minimum of three months for hair to start regrowing.

A 19-year-old female asked:

I was told that putting Monistat on your hair will help your hair grow long & thick. Im 19 & I can see my scalp, it looks parted. Is this true? What can help grow new hair into spots that don't have any?

Not likely: Unless you have a fungal infection on your scalp, Monistat is not likely going to help your hair grow.
