View Full Version : Hello! New member. Starting the big 3 for now. Norwood scale number?

Hey all. Finally decided to do something to slow down the loss. Probably should have started sooner.
Included some pictures, sorry for the quality they were taken at work after a quick buzzing just to get an idea of where things were at. Usually comb forward, looks just "ok" - but was not happy to see what was underneath at all.

Assuming the usual routines stabilize this and maintains, opinions on chances for some regrowth and somewhat normal looking hairline?

Thanks for the feedback all. Hopefully medical advancements start making progress for all of us here.

Welcome to the forum!

It's hard to tell what norwood you are because you have your hair combed forwards, but my best guess is that you have a NW3 hair line. You're thinning in a NW5 / NW6 pattern though. Have you tried buzzing your hair instead of combing it forwards? I think buzzing it will look much better, esp because the difference between the thick hair on the sides and the thin hair on top becomes less obvious.

Anyway, it's good you're starting treatments. With them you have a good shot at maintaining what you have and maybe there will be some regrowth and thickening as well.

Good luck
