View Full Version : 20 yr old hairloss

04-08-2016, 02:15 PM
I've been dealing with hair loss for about a year now. I have a good amount of hair if you just take a glance but I know it is getting thinner especially on the left side of my hairline. I have the itch and lose 100+ hairs a day. Just wondering what my options are as I am afraid of fin cause of sides and Ive heard stories of ppl losing more hair on it.

Hi TheImplication!!

I would bet that, because you are ONLY 20 years old, that you might be
a bit over-emotional about hairloss POSSIBILITIES.

This is not a criticism about or to you.

You must 'step-back' a little and be accepting of how your hair is right now.
You still may a GREAT looking scalp The' but of course you are getting older.
At this point in your life, it seems to ONLY be a maturing hairline.
Most of us males have maturing hairlines after the teenage years.
Some males, like me, would experience a maturing hairline in our late teen-aged years too.
I had decided to accept what it was looking like back then.
I had not experienced hairloss in my young ages,,just a matured hairline.
(of course,later on in my life, into my late 30s, I started experiencing my hairloss)
STRESS WILL cause serious issues to your hairline if you allow yourself to become worried.

I would NOT suggest that you go on Finasteride.
I do suggest that you possibly start taking Minoxidil.
Start taking Biotin as well,,it is a vitamin of the B complex and it has a long GOOD history of improving ones hair,,men and women's alike.
I am sure that NO ONE around you really notices any difference to your scalp bro!
Stay CALM and stay POSITIVE my young friend!!

Thanks for the quick input! My father was balding in his early 20s and I have the general symptoms of mpb(itch, etc.) So I'm sure its mpb . I do think stress has caused my hair loss to excelerate a lot from the past year. I will try biotin and I'm going to take nizoral. I will probably get into rogaine soon but not really looking to lose more hair(even if its just temp) . Probably looking to fin sometime in the future, just don't wanna start too late as if heard many say. Just gotta keep my mind off it but its a lot harder than you think aha.

HELLO TheImplication !! Im so glad to hear back from you today!!

Well, it is possible that you might have the same hairloss as your father's hairloss BUT, you might not.
If you do start to have hairloss it might NOT be as STRONGLY prominent as your father's hairloss.
My father was losing his hair early on.
When my brothers and I were young, we SAW that our father was losing his hair.
He became a NW 7+ but none of us (my brothers and me) lost that much hair!!
Again, step back a little bit more and stay calm bro!
Yes, get on Biotin and minoxidil also nizoral.
If you were to have serious hairloss it CAN BE fixed in different ways. No worries!
Im glad to connect with you !
