You should see a dermatologist who is familiar with hair loss, and verify the cause before you do anything. If they verify that you do indeed have AGA then you need to get on an anti-androgen to protect your follicles from DHT. The two main options now are finasteride, and RU58841. Finasteride is taken orally and reduces DHT levels in your body. RU58841 is an experimental topical that blocks DHT from binding to the hair follicle.

    If I were you I would get RU58841 on the black market, and you should be able to thicken your hair and maintain until CB-03-01, a topical similar to RU58841, hits the market. By doing this it is very likely that we will have a cure before you ever lose more hair. The most important thing for you to know is that it is easy to maintain your hair with treatment, but it is almost impossible to regrow it once it's gone. The time to do something is now, not after it gets worse.
    You'd have to be retarded to tell him to use RU when there are other PROVEN medications to treat hairloss.

    What do you mean others won't pay attention to it?

    Yeah I started finasteride 3 months back. I was scared about sides so I didn't do it for a while.

    My hair looks exactly the same though....have experience minimal loss since the pic on this thread.

    Yes bro, It seems to start falling your hair. I would recommend to care your hair. Take proper diet which content vitamins, minerals, protein etc.
    Nail rubbing also can be a good option.

    i'm about 5 years older and loosing hair fast. I started seeing thinness on top about a year ago and it was upsetting as hell, as I was seeing scalp.

    A week ago I buzzed it no guard to see if that would hide the problem. Now, I realize why it looks thin. I can see the pattern. Not sure what the **** is next but think a year from now it will be worse.

I take pics sometimes of the bak of my head to see if its gettin worse hahha. If i am ill prolly just say **** it and eventually shave it off..
    i started similar 19ish. eventually lost almost all of it. i know it's stressful. if you buzz super short, people will get used to your new look and NOT notice further thinning, etc. best to ya
