View Full Version : 21 year old, losing hair and have no idea what to do.

Hello, guys. I never thought I'd have to go here but I guess I should try. I would like to know how bad it is. I always had very thin hair since forever and when the light hit them it would easily shine through. Just recently, for about 3-4 months I noticed my head itching and been getting this weird tingling feeling on the head, guess it's the hair falling out? Seems so. Also, I always have bad dandruff, I always use anti-dandruff shampoo but it never fully helps, if I stop using it can be pretty bad.


What do you guys think? Should I just go and start taking fin and minox now or something else?

P.S. sorry about the bad pictures.

I'm really freaking out here, do I even have a chance if I start minoxidil and/or fin now? Should I just go to my doctor for this?

I don't think an itchy scalp necessarily translates to you losing hair. Or at least to typical male pattern baldness. Yeah maybe go see a doctor about it. If you do have typical male pattern baldness I can attest a regret I have is not getting in finasteride while I still had most all of my natural hair as you currently do.

Also don't let someone talk you into hair transplants at age 21, you don't need it.

Hello, Steve. Thank you for replying. I don't intend to do any hair transplants, at least not now, not at this age. My hair loss is pretty weird, I seem to be losing more hair on one side than the other, is that normal? Btw, how long have you been on finasteride? I'm considering if I should use it or just let my hair die on its own and go bald.

Hi, I think it can happen in an uneven pattern. I've only been on finasteride for 3 months, the proscar version. No side effects.
