    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,
    Me.

    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

    actually, there's plenty u can do.

    you can either choose to chemically castrate yourself or you can deal with it like a man and shave your hair.

    Finastride/Propecia is only a temporary solution, and one that isn't particularly nice either.

    Basically "munching fina" is p. dumb and it's your going to maybe perhaps somewhat halt the hair loss at the cost of inhibiting an important process in the body, as well probably getting the dreaded fina dick.

    Also get nizoral 2% shampoo, this should be available otc at a chemist/pharmacy (may be under a different trade name in your country). The active ingredient prevents DHT from forming in the scalp if used every day.

    If your hair loss is DHT related (high possibility) this will stop, or at least considerably slow down your hair loss.

    If this doesn't help and the hair loss progresses considerably, then and only then, consider finasteride treatment.

    Just understand that DHT, even if it is oh so evilly causing your hair loss, is a very important hormone. Finasteride inhibits DHT.

    Fixed.

    Same boat here. Don't bother with all the anti-hairloss products, they barely work and are just a moneysink. Spend some money on a nice set of clippers.

    I don't understand; I don't see a noticeable pattern of balding in those photos at all.

    (as a female) I have fairly long hair - almost down to my waist - and everytime I brush or wash my hair, more hair than in that first photo comes out. Remember that the human body sheds 100+ head hairs every day, but it's definitely more noticeable if you have long hair, as opposed to hair that's one inch long.

    There are a lot of things that can help with baldness, but if you've been abusing your body particularly badly as of the past six months or so (drinking excessively, taking a lot of illicit drugs, maybe even just eating a lot of shit food), then that can increase the hair loss until you stop. There are a lot of options, so don't give up, but also remember that at a certain point, it's a lot more attractive to women when you shave your head and just accept it. It's up to you to determine what that point is.

    About a year ago (I was 17) I had pretty severe hair loss. I talked to my sister, who goes through "seasonal hair loss" (she loses some hair every Autumn) and she said that I'm probably losing hair to either a lack of sleep, bad diet, stress or all of the above. It was probably due to a severe lack of sleep.

    So anyways, I started going to sleep at 10pm or earlier EVERY night. Also, just in case, I stopped giving a shit about everything (no stress that way).
    However, I started taking these pills (vitamins?) and they really helped. 1 pill 3 times a day.

    Took 'em for about 2 months and my hair went back to normal. New hair grew where the old fell out. Everything been fine since then.

    if your hair was shorter, you probably wouldn't even notice it. either make the most of your hair loss or shave your head and embrace it, my friend did it after he noticed he was losing his hair and he never looked back and it did wonders for him, women actually found him more attractive bald.

    Yeah OP I get that too, you're not balding it's just really noticable that your hair has been shed when it's too long to just go down the drain.

    Men are different then women by balding, allow me to explain through SCIENCEE

    "The trigger for this type of baldness is DHT, a powerful[clarification needed] sex hormone, body- and facial-hair growth promoter that can adversely affect the prostate as well as the hair located on the head.[3] The mechanism by which DHT accomplishes this is not yet fully understood. In genetically-prone scalps, i.e. those experiencing male or female pattern baldness, DHT initiates a process of follicular miniaturization, in which the hair follicle begins to deteriorate. As a consequence, the hair’s growth phase (anagen) is shortened, and young, unpigmented vellus hair is prevented from growing and maturing into the deeply-rooted and pigmented terminal hair that makes up 90 percent of the hair on our heads.[4] In time, hair becomes thinner and its overall volume is reduced, resembling fragile vellus hair or "peach fuzz" until, finally, the follicle falls dormant and ceases producing hair completely."

    If you're that concerned with it don't listen to the other guy, nizoral shampoo will do very little for your hairloss. I'm starting to lose hair myself, so I should know. Go try Propecia (finasteride) for awhile and see how bad the side effects are, as it does have some sexual side effects but some people don't see them at all. Finasteride is pretty much the only drug and only treatment that really works at fighting going bald anyways, as it is the only thing that stops it. If you start on it early it can help a lot. If the side effects occur, then just go off the drug.

    Finasteride is a fucking dumb. Inhibiting DHT in general is dumb, especially if your still at a developmental age as a male (12-25). DHT is a potent androgen and inhibiting this can have negative effects on your development as a male. Just a hth for every potentially balding young man out there, DHT is directly responsible for the growth of your penis, so decide if your hairline or your adult penis size is more important to you i guess.

    Fina will NOT grow hair back and it will NOT stop hair loss permanently. All it does it stop further hair loss from happening while you are on it.

    Edited:

    bite the bullet and shave your head, get a tan etc. Don't be like those retards on SA convincing themselves that their hair will grow back eventually meanwhile they are 23 years old running around with patchy short hair

    What the hell do you mean by your adult penis size? It doesn't inhibit that at all, it's responsible for erectile dysfunction and low libido yeah, but you won't have to worry about your penis not growing? Besides you shouldn't even be on the drug if you're still going through puberty and show because I can agree with that much, it will fuck up your hormones. So wait until you're older, simple.

    Sorry to shatter your hopes and wishes, but yes, it does affect adult penis size. Testosterone and the by product DHT, are directly responsible for the development of the male penis. This is why boys born with congenital 5-AR deficiency (the enzyme for converting testosterone to DHT) lack normal sized genitalia, and are often raised as girls mistakenly.

    By inhibiting DHT in while you are still developing, you are risking your penis not growing to full size. For males, that is potentially anywhere up to ~25 years of age.

    Use one of the DHT blocking shampoos or something, because inhibiting androgens in the male body is dumb as fuck.
