    Default 20 Years old and a sign of balding?

    Hey Everyone! I thought I'd come and ask for your opinions on whether or not I'm balding, here are few facts:

    1) My father is bald and the uncle from my moms side is as well, however, besides those two, everyone in my family has a full head of hair

    2) I went to a hair specialist, she didnt do any examination but she said I was still having baby hair. However, I felt she didnt examine my crown as much

    3) Ever since I started growing my hair, a decent amount falls off in the shower

    4) I do live a healthy life style, im curious as too how important is sleep? Because schools takes a toll on my sleep

    Here are the images

    Hello,

    These photos are not sufficient. Try posting better quality photos and part your hair down the middle.

    Take care,

    Tracy

    Hello,

    Only one of the photos in the second set works - but in that photo it does look like you are thinning in the vertex and mid-anterior. The good news is you have cought it early so you are in very good shape. If it bothers you, you need to book an appointment with a doctor who specializes in treating hair loss. Till you can do that, it would be a good idea to start using Rogaine foam on your mid-anterior and vertex at least once a day and Nizoral A-D shampoo once a week in place of your regular shampoo. Consider getting a laser comb and use it every other day. The most important thing though is to talk to a doctor and get DHT under control.

    All my best to you,

    Tracy
