Every time I get on here I see a minimum of three "I'm going bald, help me" threads, complete with a picture of an almost-full hairline.
Well, gentlemen, I present to you:
Without further ado:
So you just noticed your receding hairline. Rather than talk to a professional, you prefer to consult the internet like the responsible person you are.
Where to start?
Step 1 would be to determine the cause of your baldness. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I use a lot of product in my hair?
- Are the products I use harsh?
- Do I have high testosterone, or a history of high testosterone?
- Is my family predisposed to baldness?
- Is my diet shit?
If you answered yes to questions one or two:
It may be that excessive product is blocking your hair follicles. This is easier to fix, and you may not have any immediate problems at all.
A simple solution is using tea tree oil as a topical remedy. By diluting it and massaging it into the scalp, you can unclog your follicles and release the perfectly healthy hair underneath. Do a Google search for tea tree oil remedies for hair growth. WARNING: Tea tree oil is toxic to eat, and should only be used topically. It also stings LIKE A BITCH if you get undiluted tea tree oil in your eyes, so dilute that shit before you use it and handle with care.
Results can come about in under two months.
Alternatively, if you answered yes to questions three or four, you have you genes to thank for your hair loss. Again, it isn't the end of the world, but it typically requires more dedication than the former.
The most frequently recommended substance I've heard about on here is finasteride. It is effective for some, but buyer beware: it's not for everyone. Do your research before getting it. There are some that can have severe reactions to it, some please for the love of god talk with a doctor before you put that shit in your body.
Many people don't know how finasteride works, so I'll set the record straight. Finasteride is an antiandrogen. In plain English, that means it's a testosterone blocker. Excessive use OR extreme predisposed reaction to it can cause it to block more testosterone than desired, leading to problems like erectile dysfunction or breast growth. And finally, studies show it is only effective in about one in three men, and only after about six months of continuous use. If that still sounds like you want to try it, talk to your doctor. If not, stay the hell away.
An alternative to finasteride is spironolactone, AKA Aldactone. Like finasteride, Aldactone has antiandrogenic properties, commonly used by people such as women doing hormone replacement therapy and trans women for reducing their testosterone. It's also used more practically to treat high blood pressure. It typically packs a stronger punch than finasteride does, and also comes in higher dosages. It definitely deserves caution and once again, you MUST contact a doctor before using it. However, it has a reputation for being one of the most potent remedies for baldness around. Approach with caution, as the side effects have the potential to be much more severe than with finasteride.
Finally, there's those of you whose baldness comes from a poor diet.
This one really isn't too complicated, so I'll keep it simple. Remember what you learned in your high school health class. Eat your green vegetables. Don't eat too much greasy, high-sodium food, fake sugar, or food with unhealthy fats. Be wary of fad diets, especially the all-liquid "cleansing" routine ones.
- Eat fish
- Eat fruits and veggies with Vitamin C
- Get plenty of iron
- Eat enough protein
- Be polite to others
- Eat too many artificial sweeteners such as aspartame
- Eat too much fast food
- Eat too much processed shit
I hope all of this can all help at least a few people out there. Please let me know if I got something wrong, or if you have something worth mentioning. Together we can keep /fa/ having beautiful hair for years to come.
Stop masturbating you degenerates, or accept your shiny dht filled scalp ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)
>The most common persistent side effects of finasteride are loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, Peyronie’s disease, penile shrinkage, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment, insomnia, severely dry skin and tinnitus.
zachipster in a nutshell.
I'm 30 now and balding on top pretty bad these days. All six of my uncles (from both sides of my family) are completely bald so I knew it was coming eventually. I had really nice, thick hair up until was about 26 or 27 so it's a drag, but whatever.
I hope I turn into Michael Stipe when I grow up.
LMAO. I was an avid fapper when I was 15-20. I also started to thin at the crown area at 21. There is also baldness in my family, but they went bald at their 40's. Dunno if my masturbating affected my quicker hairloss. Now at 25, the crown is so thin that I buzz/shave my head.
Anyways, no regrets. Gotta focus on other aspects, such as fitness and education.
ALSO. I don't believe that eating habits affect hairloss, it's most likely to be affected by genetics if it's MPB.
And how in the fuck could hair products clog hair follicles? Bunch of BS I say.
if you see this post while scrolling
you have been visited by the finasteride bird of thick hair and prosperity
good luck and well-being will come to you
but only if you post 'thank you finasteride' in this thread
OP I think Finasteride has a way better success rate than "1 out of 3" men. More like 2 out of 3 if now more. Most people can expect to at least dramatically slow down their hair loss if not stop it in it's tracks. I would say hair regrowth from Fin alone is more "1 out of 3" men. For best results, the person should add Rogaine in.
And word to the wise, if you start to notice something about your hair (excessive shedding or thinning spots) DO SOMETHING NOW. It's always easier to maintain the hair you have then try to regrow hair.
And if you're reading this and you're on the fence with Finasteride because of sides, just give it a shot. Not everyone gets sides from it and if you hair means that much to you, you should at least give it a shot.
Best of luck.
Always love seeing you in these threads man. Been on Fin for about a month now. Still shedding the same I was before Fin, but I feel like my hair looks healthier. Hoping just to maintain as my hair loss is very minor still.
Also, thank you finasteride
roughly, after 10 years
4/10 men had more hair then before they started
5/10 keep all their hair
1/10 lost hair at a slower rate(mostly a lot slower, it seems only logical to assume)
in regards to long term, longer studies are yet to be released, but considering the 10 year studies showed an overall improvement compared with the five year ones, and considering finasteride's function, as well looking at anecdotes from guys who have been on fin for 15 years+, finasteride working permanently is a a pretty logical conclusion to draw imo
Thinning or shedding doesn't always amount to balding or male alopecia. It might as well be a telogen effluvium triggered by stress, season change, dermatitis or lack of specific nutrients (iron, vitamin D, zinc).
Minox is a growth stimulant. It will help you grow hair, but won't stop DHT (the hormone that mainly causes hair loss) and you'll slowly lose ground.
Finasteride blocks DHT. It should at worst slow down your hair loss if not stop it for quite a while. If you want to keep your hair, I highly recommend this. It is possible to see some regrowth with just Fin alone but it's good to add minox for the best results. Also if your hair loss is still very minor, I would recommend just using Fin for a year, and see where you at are before adding Minox.
minox is just a growth stimulant
why it actually works as a growth stimulant is not well understood
what is known though is that it never works permanently, and basically just provides a superficial thickening effect for a few months, and after that you begin losing hair at exactly the same rate as if you had never started taking it...and so end up bald
fin tackles the underlying cause of baldness, and works seemingly permanently, finasteride also perhaps maintains the 'supericial' regrowth of minox, and curiously even if you were to stop taking minox, but i wouldnt bank on this
I noticed about a month ago that my hair has thinned out quite a bit on my crown. But I'm in my mid thirties so I think I'll just let it go. Also it gives me a good reason to keep my beard.
fin works more on the cause of hairloss on the hormone level and minox works on the effect in the supply of the hair-follicel
i use minox for some years now and it might slow down thinning but it wont stop it. it lets you keep weaker hair.
i use only 0,3 ml per day because im afraid of side effects. I also use biotin but i don't know if it helps anything.
I've read best results are achieved with a combination of fin and minox.
>what is known though is that it never works permanently, and basically just provides a superficial thickening effect for a few months, and after that you begin losing hair at exactly the same rate as if you had never started taking it...and so end up bald
Wrong, as long as you use minoxidil you won't lose the hair you gained. And the fact that its effects will reverse when the treatment will be stopped is true for fina too.
If you want to try minoxidil you should give it at least 1 year to see how it works for you.
>Wrong, as long as you use minoxidil you won't lose the hair you gained
no u wrong
minoxidil monotherapy inevitably fails
Well just from your post i can know there is alot of things you don't know but i want to ask guys i noticed some hair loss like not in the soak or whatever but just everytime i run my fingers throught my hair there were like 3 - 4 hairs falling everytime and once there were like 15 hairs at the same time I FREAKED OUT i did go to a derm , he kept pulling my hair and checking it without a microscope and he told me i naturally had a widows peak and i just noticed it ( checked old and it's true) , that there was alot of hair everytime i run my fingers throught my hair because i don't brush it and they were probably old hairs , that i shouldn't wear a bennie ( like i was when i was there) because of the vitamin D , also a soft telogen effluvium ? she prescribed me 9 months of minoxidil and told me to get my blood checked up because i told her i had untreated anemia .
The problem i don't really trust him because i have very short hair that is falling ? like it's as thick and dark as my normal hair but just very short ? and from what i read on forums about hair loss it's the typical thing for a guy that mpb .
If you don't really touch your hair all day, it may be normal to lose that (remember most people lose 50-100 hairs a day). Post pictures of your hair line, scalp (top of head) and back of head. We can give you advice.
Well after looking at the pictures now at least i'm pretty sure i have mpb mfw too young to go buzzcut
i don't have a pic of my crown but i checked it 1 month ago and it's full
>hair is perfectly okay in summer
>notice thinning top at the end of august
>now can't grow my hair even to this
Honestly from what I can see you look fine, just keep an eye on your hair. Take pictures of your hairline and crown every few months in the same conditions (lighting, angle, etc) and compare. Best of luck.
That is true, but you made it sound basically useless in your previous post. Several people have been maintaining their hairline with only minox for years, of course if the balding is particularly aggressive minox won't do much, but as long as you stay on it it will definitely help keeping the hair it helps growing.
As someone who has suffered from hair loss for like 5 years and no one in his family is bald I think it is almost safe to say that my diet has to do a lot with it, I've always been 5-8 pounds below my ideal weight since i was a child (im twenty years old now) so my hopes are that now that I've a nutritionist this will go away, and if it stays, well, I'm ready to deal with it.
Really informative post by the way, anon.
A word of caution on those ready to jump on the fin train:
"A 2015 meta analysis found none of the clinical trials had adequate safety reporting and did not provide sufficient information to establish the safety profile for finasteride's treatment of hairloss. The study concluded the existing clinical trials of finasteride for hair loss provide very limited information on toxicity,are of poor quality, and seem to be systematically biased toward under detection of adverse events. Moreover, the trials submitted to the FDA for approval for hair loss excluded most men who would normally be prescribed finasteride for androgenic alopecia."
i have long hair for 10 years since 15
some periods over the year they drop like crazy
but at this point i honstly dont give a fuck
nothing is visible yet and everytime i ask the guy who cuts my hair he says its all good
if it happens ill go full bouncer mode. gym like crazy and a beard
i think its the only way
I have a bit of hair loss going on in the front right now. mostly because of a shitty diet for weight loss I did for half a year.
it still hasn't grown back. I eat normally and take vitamin and mineral supplements to fill up my depot but it's not really helping so far. going to a dermatology doctor soon.
oh also my advice to bald guys is to get swole, stop posting on fa and post on fit, having a greek god body will distract from your bald head
well finasteride is a pretty sound prevention, i'm not sure we're going to have anything else better for a long, long time.
to be honest though the sooner the better, finasteride for me really is just a way of holding with my hair intact until something that doesnt lower your dht levels comes along. not that dht is all that important in adult males, but id like to be able to grow a beard one day perhaps(if you cant grow a full one already, you probs never will whilst on fin, as dht acts in the opposite way at ever hair follicle that isnt on the top of the head)
>i'm not sure we're going to have anything else better for a long, long time.
Industry people are banking on a big breakthrough in 5-10 years.
It's going to be the most profitable treatment in the history of pharmaceuticals. Look at Viagra. Within 24 hours of it's release Pfizer's stock had doubled in price. Doctors wrote 25 million prescriptions for it that first year alone. Pfizer still clears $4,000,000,000 per year and this is 18 years after Viagra.
Has any of you tried checking out the "Rebuild Hair Program"?
I got linked to some guy shilling it on his site, it's some e-book for 30$ but I managed to find a torrent despite not even balding. If anyone's interested in trying it out I can send a link of the torrent.
Nope that's a juvenille hairline for a person that have a square one , everyone hairline is different but that's the ideal i think u know like zayn his hairline is veryyyy low but it recede as we age even if we don't have mpb it's called a mature hairline
JUST ANOTHER 2 YEARS
>still have 'juvenile hairline'
not sure if blessing or curse. absolutely no sign of balding (either hair line or hair thickness/volume).
>another batch of finasteride came in the mail today
HAHA, time for impotence
actually no. fucking fountain of youth. i love this shit. got to work yesterday and realized i forgot to take the pill. quickly drove back home. i couldn't concentrate without my fin.
hi i love you. i looked more carefully now at the picture you posted and i think you have better hair than me, damn. when i put it up like that one can see that my left temple is thinner than the right one. fucking hairy dude problems.
daily reminder that you should not 'just shave it bro'
daily reminder that confidence cant run frame a face
daily reminder that a girl cant run her fingers through confidence
daily reminder that finasteride is a highly safe and effective drug
daily reminder that there is no reason to at least not try fin
daily reminder that going bald is a death sentence unless youre in the top 0.00002% of male attractiveness
daily reminder that women detest bald men
daily reminder that muscles wont compensate and youll just be a walking cliched gay wet dream
daily reminder that there is no reason to be a bald alien in the year 2016
>tfw notice hairline reduction at 17
>tfw worse at 18
>tfw big ears to top it off
I'm fucked honestly, been growing my hair out so my ears don't look as goofy but I can only imagine how ridiculous I look without it.
What is with the people shilling for pharmaceuticals? It happens in every single baldness thread. I'm going bald and I'm never taking that shit.
Are people just trolling when they say "shill"?
Fin is available as a generic now. Who exactly would pay somebody to post for the off chance of selling a few pills in one of the lowest traffic boards on 4chan?
If you believe shilling is real you're dumb as fuck and probably balding too.
hairline one year study :')
age: 21 in a month or two
famm history: dad, relatively thick hair into late 50s, only recently started receding. mum side - bald granddad (;_;)
should i get on fin? should i get on minox? should i kill myself?
replies apprecaited. yes i have posted this before.
ah jeeez i see so many of these guys with slightly receding hairline but very thick, resilient looking hair beyond that
i reckon youre gonna be fine for a LONG time, youre not a diffuse thinner like i was
get on fin if youre feeling vain, and cant bare the thought of your hairline receding any further, which i wouldnt blame
Post a picture of your hairline (with your head down). It would def keep your hair where it's at if not regrow a little. But honestly I think you would look pretty handsome bald with a thick beard no homo.
You're like a NW 2. If you feel like you're losing a lot of hair a day (like in the shower, when styling, all over places you work, etc) then I would. If not, maybe just keep watching it.
I have been on fin and minox for about 1.5 years.
Hairloss has TOTALLY stopped, and i have gotten mild regrowth... The shitty part is, the hair you lost most recently comes back FAR faster than the shit you lost first, so for the past ~8 months i have had faster-growing scraggly thick hairs maybe 0.5cm away from my original hairline, with more regrowth along my current hairline... So it kinda looks odd and extra care needs to be made when getting a haircut.
Also, you DEFF. need to get a haircut every4-6 weeks, as the hair that isnt thining also gets a boost in growth...The hair on the top of my crown maybe grows half an inch each month. The hair on the side grows atleast 3/4, and maybe even 1 full inch in the same period. I keep my hair relativly short(7 on the top, 3 on the sides. I tried doing a full 3 all over, but the hair on the top still isnt quite thick enough without it looking off. 2 years ago before i started the meds i had accidentally gotten a 4 on the top and I legit looked bald because of how thin and un-spars the hairs were, so shit is getting better)
Cost is also kinda annoying. Each month of treatment(finn and minox) is around $25.
Yeah, actually.. I do have a hard time keeping an erection. Getting off is still just as easy, but actually getting hard takes more stimulation.
I'm a gay guy, so its not as big a problem.
Yeah, we really needed a reddit tripfag going on a self-important rant about balding panic, which is essentially the height of insecurity.
Yeah, we could freak out and do a bunch of broscience research, or we could just shave our heads and be /fa/ about the whole thing, which basically consists in not giving a fuck, or, pretending not to care until you actually don't care.
This and all of your other posts are weapons-grade faggotry
Do something better with your life
around month 2 or 3.
Its comes and goes in phases. I would only notice it when shampooing my hair at the end of the day. I would literally count 40+ hairs(and obviously i was losing more through out the day)
After 2 months of finn and minox, it was maybe one or 2 while shampooing.
Like i said, i'm in a shedding phase now. Its something i like, since it proves the meds are working(if i was noting hair lose and my hairline was NOT moving forward, then it would freak me out... but there is noticeable positive change if i made a concerted effort to look, every few weeks. I can actually see faint hairs all along my original hairline now... As they 'phase' into the proper growth system, it'll look better.)
Sorry, no pics. Its also not really significant compared to other people who have posted in other threads. But its deff. worth the $$$ and weaker erections, imo. I'm 28 now. Started at 26, and noticed hairloss around 19. Had i jumped on the meds earlier id be a lot better off.
If its something you're on the fence about, keep in mind that the time it takes to lose the hair is a fraction of what it takes to grow back. 1 year of hair lose will probably take 2 years of meds AFTER the initial 9 months of your body adjusting to them(which you cant really fairly judge until its passed)
Thank you for replying man. I'm glad you had success. So far my hair loss is still fairly minor (I'm like a NW 2 with thinning in the crown), I noticed my hairline was going to shit like a year ago but I didn't do anything about it. Then I started noticing how I was losing like 50 hairs in the shower and a lot of hairs throughout my day. Looked into Fin about 2 months ago and got on it last month. As long as I can keep the hair I have and thicken up some of the thinning areas I'll be happy. I'm also using min and Nizoral.

If anything balding is a trial of spiritual growth by judging how much attachment you place in your hair and "looking good". It's why monks shave their heads, it's a sign of rejection of the normal human world.
yes of course i am a neet
i spend 10% of my neetbux on finasteride, and 90% on alcohol
will never have a job. will never go bald. literally the perfect life
>literally the perfect life
except the part where you never have a gf or get to travel to interesting places
I have a full head of hair, I just came to say your hairline is shit and it's silly you've made an identity around your popping of anti-testosterone pills like some fucking tranny.
you're such a fucking loser, why anyone would take your advice is a mystery.
Balding fags of /fa/, go talk to a doctor or a dermatologist about this shit instead of a degenerate NEET.
lol y u mad
i am the certified /fa/ hairloss doctor
my knowledge is almost unparalleled, being a neet i have ample time to read up on such matters
now tell me, are you
a ragie wagie
a rowdy baldy
or all of the above?
btw i hope u have fun in thailand this year u 'travelling' nu-male balding cuck
Finally got surgery. It was painful im the begining but I'll be getting less thining now. Results will show in 6 to 8 months. :)
If you're in it for the long haul, you should only consider a transplant after being on fin for over a year or 2. After you get the surgery you MUST go on finn anyway(or else you'll lose the hairs around the transplants anyway, which is 1000x worse than being legit bald since everyone can see you're a shallow fuck with hairplugs now) so you might as well save all the viable hairs you have and try to sprout new ones to mitigate the cost/pain of the surgery(each hair graft is something like $5-10)
Also, in the next 2 years, there might be a huge breakthrough that helps you avoid havign the gross half-moon scar on the back of your head(or maybe a legit cure)
Also worth mentioning the human head only has ~100, 000 hairs. Unless your taking hair from somewhere else(and thus getting frizzy, slower growth) you're just playing a shell game. Way smarter to try to regrow your own hair... even if it costs more in the long run and forces you to do annoying treatments(though honestly, 2 minox applications are maybe 1 minute out of my day)
$300 a year isnt unsubstantial for all people... esp. when that $300 is expected to be paid for the next ~20 years(though with inflation and other drug prices, odds are it'll be going up)
I think a line needs to be drawn in the sand between baldcucks and the follically empowered
this is not just an aesthetic issue, but also one of genetic superiority, we cannot allow any further in 2016 no less, the intermingling of the 2 species.
even those who take medical enhancements through transplants and drugs should not be allowed to deceive the follically dominant, they cannot be allowed to be considered on equal footing
this includes baldcucks such a zachipster, for all the good his use of generic prescriptions of pharmaceuticals (lol poorboi), he is still and always will be spiritually a baldlet, indeed it is his genetic destiny.
this is a turning point for /fa/, what kind of a board is it going to be in 2016 and beyond, one which adheres to strict aesthetic principles, or a breeding ground for the genetically defective and aesthetically defunct
forgot my pic
*'yawnnnnnn* represents what im going to do tomorrow until about 11am tomorrow though. then ill probably go for a neet bike ride before perfecting my rendition of mozart's requiem. after that some early evening jiu-jit-siu patterns catch-up is probably in order, maybe ill rustle some yam soufflé also. who knows though really; after all i do have all the time in the world. one things for sure though, it will all be done with a full of hair
you should probably get some sleep baldie, i hear it might be cold tomorrow, you might have have to get up extra early to defrost your car, no being late now wagie run along tick tock
I'm 21 in a month and I've always had a pretty big forehead which makes my natural widow's peak make it look like I'm balding.
Except...in the last few months (as in the end of the summer) I've noticed that I'm actually balding.
I don't eat fast food/processed shit all the time - lots of starch, dairy and salt but mostly homecooked cheap meals (college student). I've been under somewhat heavy stress with my degree, but I recently got on adderall to help my focus and reduce anxiety. My father isn't balding, but my grandfather looks pretty thin up top in his late 60's.
But here's the thing that might be weird: my head itches, like a lot. It goes away for quite a while (most of the day) after I use shampoo with salicylic acid, but I've long suspected that I had some kinda weird scalp psoriasis or some shit.
Is it possible that I'm scratching my hair out in my sleep? What do, /r9k/
I'm sorry if I'm kind of spewing words - I've felt really shitty about this for the last few months and I've never seen a 4chan thread where people actually talk about it. I actually have been prescribed finestride and it's sitting at CVS waiting for me to drop $55 on it, but I'm scared that it won't work and that it'll just fuck me up with post-finestride syndrome.
Any input would be appreciated.
An itchy scalp is a common thing with MPB.
Also why are you paying $55 for Finasteride? You can get the 30 generics at most major drug stores for like $9 it's a part of that big "medicine for everyone" shit. Post pictures of your hairline and crown. Personally I would get the medicine a shot, once you lose the hair it will be very hard to grow it back.
Oh, one more thing - I smoke weed a lot. Probably a bowl and a spliff every night. Is marijuana conclusively linked to hair loss?
I have no clue. Can you send me a link showing the meds that cheap? That was the quote that CVS gave me.
Pictures will be forthcoming. Let me take them real quick.
I couldn't find it on CVS list, could you possible get your script sent to either Walmart or Target?
It's under "Men's Health"
My insurance covered it (because it's for "prostate") so it costs me like $4 for 3 months worth.
Sorry for the pics right off of my iPhone. Thanks for your help.
Christ, it's worse than I'd realized. Again - I'm 20 and I don't think genetics are to blame, although they certainly aren't helping.
Picture two, of my hairline. Note: before this all started happening I had my hair cut in that kind of short on the sides long on top parted on the left style, combed over. So I kind of have a thick combover going. It kinda works usually, but it's pretty embarrassing when it doesn't.
Yeah anon, I would def get on Finasteride. I would also start using Minoxidil and Nizoral shampoo (the Big 3). You're young so you will def get good results from it.
And do be honest weed wouldn't have anything to do with it, it's your genetics. I'm losing my hair early too it sucks I know (I'm 22). But the sooner you start using these meds, the better chance of saving/regrowing your hair you'll get. This is a site that has a lot of good information about hair loss, products and a good forum for advice.
stuff that is bad for your hair is only really bad for your hair if you are susceptible to baldness
like a normal guy could eat mcdonalds every day of his life and not go bald but a guy with balding gene would go bald probably three times as quickly if he did this
>Have hairline receding at 21
>Be depressed about it
>consider talking to doctor about finasteride but decide against it because already poor as fuck and can't afford to waste money on something that might not work and might give me nasty side effects.
>Remember girls don't even like me with hair, so hairline doesn't matter.
>feel slightly better
I'm just hoping some affordable breakthrough comes through in the next few years. Otherwise, I'll just shave it and deal with it.
Yeah, but what happens is most men don't catch it until it's kind of too late. Some men don't really realize it until they're like NW 3s. For the most part the process is pretty slow (takes like 10-20 years to go full bald in most cases).
How many of you are on Finn?
Has it worked?
I've been on it for 7 years with zero sides. I guess it works. My hair might be a little thinner than when I started, and my hairline got a little worse before settling where it is now, but most of my hair is still on my head so I guess that counts as working.
Started with Rogaine, added finasteride, then stopped Rogaine. The thinning happened overtime, and in a way its still happening. I had one hair left where my original hairline used to be and I just lost it in December. But I'm not bald by any measure so its fine.
Not sure. I kinda just maintained what I had left, which was most of my hair minus a normal hairline. Its a little thin in the back too by the way, but it doesn't bother me. Every time I mention these things to people they say I'm not balding at all, so I just let it slide.
>hair dry and brittle all the time
>falls out when i run my hand through it
>itches all the time
what should i do lads? should i just bite the bullet and give fin a go?
im only 21, i dont wanna be bald by 30
fuckkkkk my genes
/sci/ med fag here, one thing I've not noticed in all the shilling...
examine some of these hairs that are coming out. If the hair loss is biologically normal you should see a "root" at one end.
If there is no root it may be a sign of something more serious, eg., cancer

I'm a cute dude with longish beautiful sunshine hair.
Would Fin help me grow my hair at a faster rate? I just want to be prettier. Would use it if it helps growth rate.
