    Default Is my crown thinning?

    Hello, I'm 17 years old and a friend in school noticed this on me. I'm quite worried about it. The only person in my family that is bald is my grandfather for mother's side, and my mom's brother, but they doens't have the same mother.


    Please, answer me as sincerely as you guys can. Thanks for the attention.

    (First time doing this, sorry if I did something wrong)

    I hate to say it... but it does look extreme for someone your age. I hope you're not twisting or plucking at the crown of your head as a nervous habit or something like that. The rest of your hair looks so thick and I think you're too young to have nature balding. But you should ask your doctor.

    I actually twist sometimes when I'm watching tv on the couch. But I'll ask my doctor, thanks

    If you're habitually pulling at your hair then please stop. Doing that could certainly account for losing hair and noticing thinning. Frequent pulling at hair can cause hair to be lost - it would normally grow back but if done too often then follicles can stop producing hair. As an example, think of women who over-pluck their eyebrows and end up with no eyebrows left. That's the same mechanism in action.

    But it is also possible that you're experiencing male pattern baldness at a young age. It does happen. So I would cease the twisting and see if your crown density improves. That's all you can do for the time being.

    I stopped twisting since yesterday. I read that it takes about 4-6 months for the hair to grow back. Thank you for your tips
