Hey I was not sure if it is appropriate to post stuff like this here, but I think we need such thread.
So as I would like to have this place open for discussions too, I also have a personal issue about this too, and here is my story, and I am looking forward for comments and hints;
I have had long-ish hair for a few years now, and I like the lenghth and curls it has.
My father and his father are pretty bald, my grandfather had no hair at all on top of his head, but on the sides he had, my father has these huge ''micky mouse''-shaped.. shapes? on his forehead that push his hairline in a mickymouseears-pattern. My mothers side never had any bald men, they all had thick hair with nice volyme.
I am turning only 18 next month, but I have noticed during the past few weeks a significant hairloss, everytime I go to the shower and if I 'comb' my hair with my fingers, it looks pretty much like this:
I wash my hair maybe every three days with the Elvital Total Repair 5 shampoo + conditioner.
At start I didn't really pay any attention to it, but today I noticed that my formerly really thick hair is thin, if I pull the hair on my forehead upwards, I can clearly see ''through'' the hair and see my scalp as somewhat maybe seen here aaand here
Also a big concern is that my hairline is also pulling back, altho I really can't recall how it is supposed to look like anyways, but this is what my looks like Image
These pictures may be a bit lying, as the light reflects to my hair that I would have 100% bald spots, but actually these spots consist of hair, but that hair is white-ish so it's not seen:
I am really concerned as my hair is really big part of me, am I just paranoid, or is there something going on? Any good treatment tips? I was thinking about starting to eat Finasterid-pills or something, any tips?
Thanks in advance,
PS. Sorry for my english, it is not my first language.
PPS. I just looked at the mirror again and noticed how my front hair really has gaps of like 1cm between hairs, that's it tomorrow I am going to the doctor and let him give me prescription of Finasteride
