    Default 16 years old, losing hair?

    I've posted here before but I'm still not sure if I'm balding or not. Nobody in my family is/was really bald, mother's father was partly bald (on front, not on top), my father is not bald, and father's father also has all his hair. I stress sometimes and I don't sleep long enough quite often. I also have dandruff, pretty severe I suppose. Other than that I don't know what's happening, maybe I have bad luck with genes after all :/.

    The only way to really tell, with your hairline, if anything, at all, is up, is to compare with past pics. Take care of your dandruff, coal tar shampoo works great. Let's see what you look like in six months.

    I've tired few anti-dandruff shampoo and remedies but nothing helped. I was thinking about ketoconazole shampoo, am I too young for it? Also here are 2 pictures of me, 2005 and 2011.my forehead looking pretty big but not receded3at temples.

    Did you try a coal-tar based shampoo? That's a pretty heavy hitter.

    The pics are too old to be able to see. A pic from a year or two ago would make more sense.

    Work on reducing stress and getting more sleep, you are only sixteen.

    Bro,first relax ,you are good ,not much noticable.

    I too is in the same boat as you, flaky dandruff and hair thinning , acc. To me dont do the mistakes i did, searching the net for solution ,home remedy,oil...blah blah.

    No need to panic and just go to some decent dermatologist , when i did go then he said me a victim of male pattern baldness .scaryyy

    And also he did give me some scalp psoarsis shampoo ,which i was using very frequently
    But now every 3 days a take,also another condtioning shampoo ,once in coming days.

    I am 17 yrs 11months taking propecia just for 1.5 months,and now i have lessen dandruff,and maintaince and regrow is going on as i have hair all over my head but some are really thin.

    Lastly pls dont panic,
    Go to a decent dermatologist
    If male pattern hair loss,you can easily almost stop it now and regrow too
    And pls dont search about male pattern hl till 3 months of medication

    And sorry for this big answer

    And male pattern hair loss suckkks

    Finasteride is the solution considering ur age.

    I would give a derma roller, Ketaconazole based shampoo and some anti DHT hair oils alongside a complete diet remape a try first.

    Than as opposed to the above consider finesteride and minoxidil.
