View Full Version : 29M possible thinning/diffuse, dad bald at 25, I've always had thin hair/bad cowlick

Took pics straight out of the shower, hair sopping wet. Portion are slicked back, some slicked forward. Took another set of pictures an hour later about 95% hair dried. Also at the end is a montage of pictures that are 6+ years old and horrible resolution, but that's all I had for context.

I could use your expert opinions, I'm definitely new to all this but trying to soak up as much information over the past few days as I've been able to. Also reposted this in the tressless subreddit, appreciate both sites for the great info.

Would appreciate any opinions.

If you have the money, you should get to an IAHRS approved hair transplant doctor who can measure such things. These doctors have a tool called a densometer which they can use to measure hairloss scientifically. they basically compare the hair density on top of your head to the sides of your head to see if your hair is miniaturizing and if you in fact are going bald.

I don't see any hairloss. But you can lost up to 50% of you hair before it is visible to the naked eye so its hard to really know if you are balding without this kind of test. If you are balding, it is best to catch it and address it early with FDA approved drugs rogaine and propecia. Prevention is best when it comes to balding.
