yep i know how u feel same happened with me
the worse thing is i can tell u the future toooo
two years later ur hairline will recede and everyone will notice and they will do nothing (ur parents too)
at your back they will make fun that how u worry about balding head
CONCLUSION-- dont ****ing let them see your feelings just be CONFIDENT (otherwise u r gonna hurt yourself)
minoxidil may work but the thing is it just gives a boost to the present hair (but what about stopping MPB???uh)
finasteride works at its best (the only drug that will delay hairloss or stop) and there is avodart but its got more power and is only taken when things have gone really bad.
A TIP- its not about having full head hair, its about how u look so maintain the hairline and keep it dense by using styling products like hair wax and pomade. GO BALD in the smart way. Nothing can stop MPB as of now. FIN will delay it(still OK for me)
Downside for u-- 16 may be too early to try FIN but u can start it on your 18th bday ALL THE BEST
Upside for u-- u r not going to lose significant amount of hair in these two years so DONT WORRY u will catch it early
here is a link of one of my posts i hope it helps
Here's my hairline. Hasn't changed I think
Thank you skyguy. I'll keep track of my hairline and crown before it gets too bad.
you are welcome blackmamba
you are norwood 1 or 1.5 i guess
a side note -- u have straight hair so be careful while using minox
u may use minox at crown but at front it may look unnatural and weird
the minoxidil usually makes your hair unnatural but u will have long and thick hair
Tip--- start applying minox at crown first and see what happens then u can proceed to hairline
ALL THE BEST
here is a link of one of my post it may help you
I wont be so sure you have hairloss, lol. Are you sure your hair was not like that before ?
I started to loose my hair at 15. It sucked, it was the late 70s. Could not talk about it, was in an abusive household, so kept it to myself. I learned the art of the comb-forward, and basically did this until college. Grew my hair long... and wore hats. After clogging the drains one too many times, I buzzed it short. Kept it that way for years, until I caught my gleaming crown on an overhead CCTV camera. Shaved it... did that for 20 years. Now, at 52 (yeah I am OLD)... I an an N6 (REALLY BALD), and I don't care.
Some hair, no hair, shaved buzzed... it makes no difference. Almost EVERYONE (men) and some women go bald!
My hair or lack of it never caused me to be ill, not get a date (or a spouse), or not get a job. I spend $50 a year on grooming supplies. My friends and family love me, and even at this age (widowed, and single), I have no problems getting dates (or sex).
You are 16... you should be having FUN. You should be saving for college, or buying your first car... not spending money on SHIT that will probably NOT do anything to bring back your hair.
Whatever you do , stay away from Propecia(finasteride). I took that drug for only a month and now 7 months later non of my side effects subsided . I have no libido , numb genitals , bring fog and massive weight gain . While I understand I m in the minority of the guys taking the drug I would not recommend it to anyone . I will gladly give everything I own to be able to go back and throw those damn pills in the trash .
Trust you? You are a doctor? He needs to deal with losing his hair... not waste his $$$ on bullshit that mostly does NOT WORK!
