Sorry to hear about your condition. Hair loss is devastating at any age but especially during our youthful years. If you're not ready for propecia and/or minoxidil, you can try Nizoral Shampoo. Have you also considered using concealers such as Toppik or DermMatch? These are amazing products that will give you years of covering up your balding regions. Unfortunately though, it does nothing to prevent your hair loss from progressing but at least you'll feel confident in preventing others from seeing it. Best of luck to you!
