I started losing hair a month after my 22nd birthday and it hasn't stopped. I used to have really thick annoying hair. If I let it grow past three inches it would grow into an Afro and I'd use a handful of gel to just to style it. Now, it's been 11 months and I can almost feel scalp even though my hair is the same length. I have crazy itching, sometimes several times a day. I've been on minox and fin for the past month. Now idk if that's causing this major shed I'm experiencing or what. But a lot of hair is falling out despite me not even having much left. I still have pretty thick hair so no one can tell I'm going bald right now. But that's literally my crutch. I honestly feel that if I keep losing hair at this pace in 4 months or so I won't have much left. Im almost 23 and having a weird shaped head and being bald would just be embarrassing. One thing I've noticed about fin is that it's stopped the crazy amounts of flakes I was producing which in thankful for. I honestly don't think my hair can take waiting a year to see if fin works. I know I have no option but to wait either way. This is just getting to me because it wasn't until recently that I grew into my looks and one thing I've experienced is that people are superficial as hell. Both my grandparents are bald and so are my uncles from my dad's side of the family. But no one had hair loss this badly. Wish I were 30 so I can get a hair transplant and forget about this.
