    Default Thinning or not

    I at least have receding temples (leaving aside whether that's just a "mature hairline" or not) but lately I've been a bit paranoid about the top as well. It doesn't look bad straight from above but from a more slant angle it looks thin. The wet hair picture also looks suspicious....
    No need to tell about the treatments, just your opinion whether it looks like it's thinning or not. Thanks!

    Dude, i'm sorry but you are quite clearly thinning on the top in a diffuse pattern, much like myself. You pretty much have one option and that is to get on Propecia asap or you'll likely progress. There are some possible side effects though so do your homework and make sure your happy with the risks before you take it.

    22 years old, not really any other health problems. Keep in mind that these pictures (besides the third) it basically looks as bad as it can - in some others it looks OK. I think i also have naturally thin hair - a long time ago, in my early puberty or earlier my friend used to look at my scalp and say I'm balding (which I ignored as a joke). If that was MPB it would be way worse now. Still I wouldn't be surprised if I was actually balding now since I have the typical symptoms of greasy hair and dandruff (helped by Nizoral now).

    Thanks but I'm going to stick to just Fin and Niz (maybe rogaine in the future), don't want to be too experimental as I'm fine with just maintaining.

    Here are more examples of pictures where it looks completely OK in my opinion, for comparison.

    not so bad but it can look better, try to see a hair specialist if you can. Determine if you are loosing hair or not, if you are, get on the BIG 3. It's better to start now then later, trust me.

    Actually I'm already on the big three (rogaine just on the temples, was a stupid decision but I can't just stop it suddenly). Originally the main reason I was worried about balding was the hairline. Now I'm slowly starting to believe hair loss on the temples is a bit different from full MPB (though still not fully convinced). So I've been thinking was that a stupid choice after all. But then again the top looks think too... in some lightings, from some angle. Yet sometmes OK. Confusing!

    I said "the wet hair picture" in the first post but obviously the second and the fourth pictures are both wet hair pictures lol. Also the first of the newer pictures.
