I seriously don't mind loosing couple of hair on top (crown), but as it can be seen from photos, my front line is just simply ugly. If it would be even on both sides, I might even not be thinking about ht at all, as I got "comfortable" with it over the years.
I am in 30s if that info helps.
As for the researching, I will do it very detailed indeed, as am I used of researching through academics, so I know how to find trusted sources and make critical opinions and I understand there is a point of no return after decision is made.
When it comes to medications, although I will take a look into it more, I never liked the idea to take medications for any reason (unless life depends upon it), and especially Im not willing to risk side effects. I know risk is very small, but I am just not willing to accept it in exchange for stop losing hair.
As for the hair loss, I just don't understand how come ALL of my relatives have thick hair, with almost no hair loss, except of my uncle (mom s side), who has a little bit more progressive hair loss then me, but he is around 45. I understand that it might goes generations back, but I cannot recall hair loss from even passed both male grandparents. Hell, both of them died over 70 years old and had more hair then, than I have now
My guess is, one of the main reason perhaps is my very stressful lifestyle.
As it is at the moment, I will most likely go after FUE 500 and wait for results. If satisfied, then go after full ht with aprox. 2000 in front. Not exactly sure, if I am bothered with losing hair on crown to much. I can't see it anyway
