View Full Version : Am I balding?

10-20-2015, 07:35 PM
I'm 18 and recently started to worry about my hair! The hairline is slightly uneven with the left side slightly thinner than the right. I believe I have a cowlick and I just want to know what you all think! Please help me out here! Btw I do not seem to lose more than 100 hairs a day! I lose about 10-15 each shower at the most! 423464234742348423494235042351

No way you are balding. Don't worry.

Okay thank you! Just lately it has been worrying me because the cowlick on my head freaks me out and my left side of my head has slightly thinner hair than my right side but I guess no hair is the same and we aren't symmetrical as people so why should our hair be? Anyways thank you!

The first two photos suggest you might, the rest don't. At 18, I had a small bald patch on the back of my head like you (I never even noticed it myself and neither did anyone else, but looking back at photos from that time, now I do), and at 20 I noticed diffused thinning. Luckily I got on Rogaine and Proscar early, and still have a lot of hair left in my late 30's. Keep an eye on it, and if the small bald spot in the rear gets larger, definitely get on Rogaine, Proscar (ignore the horror stories, I and most people never have any side effects), and Nizoral 2%. You may want to get on Nizoral now, as it has no sides, is easy to apply (it's just shampoo you use 3x a week), it's cheap, and may be a good preventative measure. If I hadn't gotten on that regiment (Proscar in particular), I am certain I would be a NW5-6 by now, instead of a NW2-2.5. In any event, I'm nearly certain there will be a "cure" (i.e., something that grows a lot of hair) by the time you're 30, so I wouldn't obsess about it.
