Hey all,

So I'm 26 now, my hair has been quite rapidly thinning on top in the last 4 years or so, and now it's like this: http://i66.tinypic.com/oubprp.png

(My hair 4.5 years ago: http://i63.tinypic.com/r75aia.png)

Basically I'm happy with my hairline, it's just that the hair has become very thin on top and seems to grow very slowly compared to the sides.

Is minoxidil worth giving a go in these circumstances, i.e. what are the odds of seeing any improvements? In terms of getting more hair on top, not maintaining the status quo.

It has been known to add density. It is hard to tell from pictures but maybe if you go in for an in person exam they can help you decide.
