I'm 34 years old and have a slight receeding hair line and have noticed my hair is sheading a bit. Shi don't have a bald spot on the back of my head, I don't stress about anytning(really), my father is bald, my mothers father had a full head of hair, I am active outdoors. In other peoples opinion, can I go bald soon or can I expect not to lose much more hair? I'm curious if I should start using one of these crazy products from the drugstore. Thanks.

That answer noobody could tell. I had a head full of hair until 32, then my life just changed with this problem. The only thing i can advice to you is to maybe use some prevent products like rogaine but if you really dont have any problem noticeable probably you're just right

No one can answer that question.

I must bother you enough to ask about what to do about it. The best thing to do is to see your doctor and talk about it. There are two medications that may help you. Propecia (or generic Finasteride) and Rogaine (or generic Minoxidil). Nizoral or Nizoral A-D shampoo may help as an adjunct treatment with Finasteride and/or Minoxidil. Depending on how much hair you have lost and how long it has been gone, you may also benefit from using a laser comb.
Can you tell me where you are on this chart and how long your hair has been like that?

The best thing you can do is go to see a qualified Hair Restoration Surgeon and have an examination to determine if you are indeed losing your hair and the cause of your hair loss. If your hair loss is due to Androgenic Alopecia (male pattern hair loss) then you could be a candidate for Propecia, Rogaine, and possibly a hair transplant procedure.
