    Default freaking out

    hi. i'm 19 y/o male and am scared about losing my hair. i've spoken to my mom and dad about it and they say i'm being stupid. if i look in mirrors the hole at the back of my head looks like a line, but it looks ok. if i check under the bathroom light it looks a bit thinner, but normal in the daytime. i started to take pictures on the camera and in the day it looks ok but that's with flash off. if i turn flash on it's a hole different story. the hole at the back looks HUMUNGUS and it looks thinner in front on the hair in front of the hole. everywhere else looks normal. also with a video cam my hair looks normal and thick unless i turn on the lught on my fone, thrn it looks real bad.

    what's real????? do i beleive the camera flash???? i know the camera adds 10lbs but does it make hair worse??? becoz normal day time light my hair looks normal. whats real?

    You know whats real is denial. When you start questioning if it's bald or not..then you are likely balding. If its thick everywhere else and you got a little bald spot, just go get some rogaine and pray for the best.

    The flash of a camera always makes the hair look thinner. Especially if you have darker hair and lighter skin. If you have a strong family history of MPB consider Propecia to try and slow down the process.
