    Default Shedding like crazy.... from my legs and ass?!

    Why the hell am i shedding so damn much hair from my legs, and my ass? I don't mind shedding hair from my legs or ass (caus i'm hairy as hell), but it's damn annoying waking up with a girl after a one night stand and hearing her complain about the hair in the bed And beside sthat it's also damn annoying having to clean my bed everyday!

    What could be the cause of this

    I also noticed shedding from those areas a few months after starting finasteride. I'm not really sure what you can do about it but I noticed that once my hair in those areas got to a certain decreased amount, the shedding stopped. Basically I think that you'll end up with less hair there, but it will stabilize at a certain point. I dont mind it as a have always had plenty to spare in those places and im still far from being hairless.

    hmm honestly, I can't remember when i started shedding? The shedding (from my head) was just insane at the age of 20 but i managed to stop it COMPLETLY and believe it or not, my head is just like when it was when i was 16, no sign of MPB or whatsoever. The density of my hair is the same all around my head. So i don't even know if i was balding or just getting a mature hairline. I started to use minox anyways as i was paranoid...

    The body-hair shedding thing started at the age of 17 i thing? I'm gonna call my doc. tomorrow and make an appointment. I want to find the cause of this..

    Lol after reading you post again i understand what you are asking for :-D my shedding from my leg and ass started and the age of 16 or 17 not my head :-) The shedding from my head started at the age of 19-20

    Default Chest shedding

    Ive also noticed shedding on my chest in teen years. That was way b4 my head, but I didn't mind cause I'm hairy there anyways. I still shed a lot on my chest. I just would like to know the cause of this also. I thought it was normal.

    Oooo ic. Okay so yeah just go to your Doc I guess about the body hair shedding and do some research online before hand.

    BTW, do you have pics from when you noticed your shedding/baldling? Im 20 now too, noticed thinning when I was 19 but never really a lot of shedding personally so my hair wasnt falling out technically. Just wondering how my head compares to yours when you started losing since im assuming were both 91s

    these pictures are from the time my shedding started (it was REALLY bad):

    but as you can see from the pics, there is no sign of MPB or what so ever. I started on a minox treatment soon as my derm said that she "believed it was MPB, but wasen't sure" so still today i don't know if it was MPB or just a maturing hairline. But yeah those pics were taken two years ago (approx). My hair is still the same, it may have gotten a bit thicker. My shedding may also have been a result of excessive use of nizoral.

    That second last pic is prolly what my hair would look like if i buzzed it. I prolly will since Im going somewhere warm in January and ill compare it to yours. How many times did u use Niz per week? I personally only use 2% Niz on mondays and thursdays.

    Im sure its thicker now for you if youve been using minox, i buzzed my hair a few years ago when my hair was 100% and no matter how thick ones hair is a buzzed cut will make you think its worse than it is. Know what i mean?

    If you do decide to buzz it off then take some pictures. Try buzzing it again after a year and compare the pics... as to my use of nizoral I actually used it almost every day but thank god I'm not dealing with this hairloss bullshit anymore. and as said, I don't even know if it was mpb for sure, just a guess from my derm. And I've always had fine hair. My best advice is to start on a treatment ASAP, especially if you are young
