Hello everyone,
Recently I started to worry about if I was balding or not. I am 20 years old and have had thin, fine and greasy hair my whole life. Within the past year however i've started to notice my scalp is visible through my hair in the anterior frontal region. My temples also go back a little bit, but i'm pretty sure it's been that way for a couple years. I definitely lost my juvenile hairline. I wash my hair everyday with shampoo and have a poor diet with little to no fruits and vegetables. I am currently taking prescription vyvanse too.

My mother has 12 brothers and sisters who all have a full head of hair and her father did too. My dad and his brother both have full heads of hair as well. The only baldness in my family was my father's maternal uncles who were all VERY bald. Is it possible that I inherited their gene's?

Please help me out here i'm going crazy....

could be just a mature hairline but how is anyone supposed to really tell if u dont provide pictures of this problem? Often what people describe and the actual reality are very different.

Its a genetic lotto mate - the MPB gene can be there regardless of immediate family. pics will help.
