Hello there I've been reading through this forum and there is alot of helpful advice from all sorts of wonderful people I hope I can do the same but I'm having a hair loss problem myself

I'm 23 years old and no one in my family has hairloss and this is affecting me greatly I used to really care about myself but since the last 2 years my hair has been receding the back if my hair is fine but it is the front and it really hurts my feelings as I don't feel the love which I had for myself, I'm really considering to go through the hair transplant procedure but can anyone recommend what's best to do it's only the front of my hair which is the problem it's making me feel sad

All the best

The first thing you should do is go to a Dermatologist that specializes in hair loss to find out what the culprit is.

Why does everyone jump to hair transplantation like it's some miracle cure by just throwing money?

It's a complicated surgery that should be considered the last option.

Go to a doctor and do a physical. Make sure there are no other underlying problems that is causing the hair thinning. There is a slew of diseases/hormonal imbalances that cause hair thinning/balding. Your right at the age of increasing amounts of stress, so abnormal levels of hormones could be the culprit.

If it ends up being MPH: finasteride and minoxidil are truly your only options that have been proven in-and-out effective.
