Scary Hair Problem

I was just wondering - is it possible for gel to cause permanent hair loss? I use a lot of gel every morning when I leave the house, and I usually have my hair back tight, in a low pony tail or a braid because I have EXTREMELY thick hair. Lately, I've noticed that my hair has been thinning and the places where I part my hair just don't seem to be so full with hair anymore.

I just don't know what to do with my hair. I cannot leave the house without gel; otherwise, I'd be a walking hairball. Help?
