View Full Version : Questions about hairloss

Hey guys i was just hoping to gain a little insight into hairloss. As a background to my interest, a friend who recently started going bald told me that it would be a good idea for me to take care of my hair since my high forehead has me prone to balding.

My family background on both my mother and fathers side have no cases of hairloss until their 70's. My father however does have a high forehead and relatively fine hair and i seem to have inherited that trait from him.

I am currently 22 my parents are 50, and i was wondering whether hairloss products are neccessary despite no genetic pre-disposition?

You opinions would be much appreciated.

A high hair line does not make you prone to baldness I donít think. Where did you hear that? Unless you see your hair falling out or getting thinner there is no reason to use any products for it. Spencer Kobren always says if youíre not losing your hair turn off his show and stop worrying until itís time to worry:)

I think what J_B_Davis said is right :-) Don't worry too much about it. It's a normal situation and I noticed some people who have high hairline who don't have any balding problem.
