any young guys here who started balding? im only 19 and my crown is thining, it doesnt look this bad in person since this pic was taken under a bright light, my hair is longer now and i usually wear it in a bun, i dont think my hairline is receiding though. should i just shave it? start finasteride for the rest of my life? any stories?
>>720139283 enjoy it while you can, male pattern balding is genetic. personally I think it's shallow as fuck to stress out and get drugs or hair transplants to try and fight it. just shave it when it gets to that point.
>>720139283 Yes you are balding. It is clear from the picture. Although you can't stop it but you can slow down this process.
Since it is long, I would recommend you to keep your hair short if you experience hair fall when you just try to comb it with your hand. If the hair strands are > 5, then you need to worry and have to take some steps to prevent it.
>>720140081 >Compared with placebo, men taking finasteride are at increased risk for impotence, erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, and ejaculation disorder for the first year of treatment. The FDA has added a warning to 5α-reductase inhibitors concerning an increased risk of high-grade prostate cancer. Although overall incidence of male breast cancer in clinical trials for finasteride 5 mg was not increased, there are post-marketing reports of breast cancer in association with its use. >A 2015 meta analysis found that none of the clinical trials testing finasteride in hair loss had adequate safety reporting and did not provide sufficient information to establish the safety profile for finasteride as a treatment for hair loss. 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. >Whether finasteride causes long-term sexual dysfunction in some men after stopping drug treatment is unclear. There are case reports of persistent diminished libido or erectile dysfunction after stopping the drug and the FDA has updated the label to inform people of these reports. A 2010 review found moderate quality evidence that finasteride increased the risk of sexual dysfunction
Just let it go bro. You're fighting the inevitable. I'm of the opinion that stress over hair loss is only partly shallow cosmetic concern, and deeper down it's about death and falling apart. in that light, hair loss isn't that significant.
>>720141919 op here, my dad had one a few years ago his head looked like raw meat and it didnt do shit, plus its expensive and painfull, and one day if you are completly bald you will have scars from the transplant
And I am telling you, why would you put the meaning self-centered, egoistical or shallow there?
I mean we are talking about receding hair problems and how to potentially fix them, so that cat is long since out of the bag. Or would you call any advice given which may lead to results vain? Then why ask for any in the first place? Any action you would take against this problem would make you a vainer.
>>720139749 femanon here, that actually looks like shit dude. i hate manbuns in genereal but i must begrudgingly admit some of those hipster types at least pull it off. your shit looks mangy and you're not centering the bun properly. plz sever.
I'm not the typical b poster. I post maybe twice a year.
As for fighting it, if money is at all tight, don't go spending it on rogaine. Get the generic from Costco, it'll save you lots of money.
Or, just own the shit out of it. Maybe work on a couple jokes about it. Rejoice in the wearing of lots of new hats. Hair doesn't garner a man that much pussy anyway. The gym would more than compensate for a bald pate.
>>720139283 Hey op I have a similar deal, I usually have kind of long hair down to my shoulders and usually you wear it in a Japanese fashion, as I am part Japanese desu desu small penis excetera. But in all seriousness my hairline has been receding to the middle of my scalp 4 years, ever since I was 14. It really wasn't a problem until now, being 18 and seeing that I'm seriously starting to lose my hair. I can give you the single best piece of advice anyone will ever give you, if you don't have the money for some hair regrowth and Transplant surgeries, moving hair from the back of your neck to your head and shit like that, shave it all off. Go crew cut at the very least but fully bald at the most. You will not regret it, it will save you infinite time and trouble, it'll look really odd at first, (oh but anon I have a weird head its too small/big/normal. Everybody who is balls feels like that for a week or two and then they are fine with it) but go get a tan or two and soon your scalp will be even-toned with your skin and you absolutely have to remember and then, the weirdest it will look is to you. Other people won't even think about it unless they've known you. Being completely bald and shaving your head looks a thousand times cleaner nicer or more respectable and in many cases attractive than having fucking really patchy thin hair that looks like shit, good luck to you sir
>>720145975 the only thing worrying me about shaving my head is my skin, i have terrible skin, im on accutane right now due to acne, i have red marks and the skin is really sensible, like if i touch it softly 3 seconds latter it will turn red and stay there for like 30 minutes, also if i exercise the skin under my eyes turn bright red and makes me look like a fucking pikachu, if i shaved my head i would look like a drug addict.
>>720146435 Awe fuck man that's shitty. If you go to a barber they can get it pretty damn close to the skin using clippers that should minimize agitation. At some point you could probably buy a pair yourself. You could also just get the close cut and if your skin permits it, wear beanies and hats allot. It's a temporary solution. I wouldn't recommend nair in any case
Call me vain,fag whatever the fuck you want,but if i satrted losing my hair id get transplant. Its not that i think i cant get a girl being bald,its that i dont like myself being bald and i like my hair. I wouldnt fucking care id just get it done and move on
First of all don't go to 4chan with personal problems. Nothing here but socially inept autists who foam at the mouth with ignorance and idiocy. Don't ever expect mature and intelligent responses/discussions from this place. Take this to a hairloss forum and ask there.
Second, your crown looks like it's thinning but the hairline looks perfectly fine. Many people have recession at the corners but after a certain point the recession stops and becomes what is called a mature hairline where it maintains a stable hairline. Corner recession does not indicate balding as some morons seem to think.
Third, the people claiming this is a shallow topic can fuck off. You know what's shallow? Judging others based on their desires, interests, and concerns. What's shallow is basing your decisions off of what other people deem acceptable. Be a confident individual and make decisions based on what you want. If you want to get on hairloss treatment? Do it. If you want to get a hairline transplant? Do it. If you want to wear a wig? Do it. But don't do it for others. Do it for yourself. Why the fuck should other peoples shallow judgment impact you in any way whatsoever? It never should.
>>720148234 >ii actually know a lot about hairloss, i didnt create this thread to get answears about treatments or anything, i just wanted opinions about the looks
Again, if you want mature and intelligent opinions go to a hairloss forum and ask about opinions there.
4chan is a place filled with miserable people who are brewing with contempt. You will undoubtedly get flamed by a bunch of socially inept twats who are either trolling or who genuinely want to make you miserable. As I said take personal matters to a mature and intelligent forum filled with adults.
As for your appearance, stop caring about what other people think. I think you look fine. I like long hair on guys and your hair looks good. But this shouldn't matter. All that matters is what you think of yourself. As for the hair just take pictures every month and keep those pictures in a folder. Then evaluate the pics as months go by to see if it gets worse.
>>720148841 i was bored and decided to create this thread and see what people think about my hair, its not that complicated, i wanted it to be judged by random peopple, not hair experts. also yes i have a folder with hair progress
>>720146747 You're not balding you fagget. While you were going out your hair.
1. you wore a hat when you go to akware stages so it fucked your hair line up and whatever way your hair was when you were wearing a hat made it permanet 2. while you were growing your hair out you took shit care of your hair 3. you wore your hair tight while your hair is short pulling on the roots fucking your hair up
Best way to fix is to cut your hair take better care of it when you grow it out fagget
>>720149253 You aren't getting the point. 4chan people are hateful and they mock everything and everyone. Going to 4chan to ask about their opinions on your appearance is like going to a KKK meet up and asking about their opinions on blacks.
Before you even posted this I could have easily told you that people would mock the bun, mock the long hair, and make false claims of you having a terrible hairline and bad genes. If people here shit on attractive women, what would you expect in this thread?
>>720149719 The irony is that by telling me to go back to tumblr, you revealed yourself to be in a triggered state. Tumblr is where the supposed "triggered" race of beings reside. So shouldn't you go back to tumblr with me since you happen to be triggered too?
>>720149814 I know nothing about hair loss because it isnt hair loss you dumb shit >>720139749 >not pulling it to tight look at the back where you think your hair loss is. Its tight in the back faggot 3. if you talking better care of your hair when you have it tight like you do which you do you wouldnt be losing so much where you are which you are
>>720139283 Shave your head and stop worrying about it. My father went bald at 21. I'm 25 and I haven't lost a single hair. I hate getting getting haircuts and general upkeep. Mind you I had hair halfway down my back. I shave it weekly because it's easier to live with. Pic related is me.
>>720139984 the problem is, if you haven't managed to secure a female yet and propagated your genes your chances get a lot worse once you shave all of it because all women want metrosexual men with faggoty hair
Your hair is fine for now, OP. I'm going bald in the same place but I'm further along than you. Nothing wrong with your hairline. It looks like a widow's peak, not notable recession. The crowning is just starting and it still looks decent in a bun, although that is fucking super gay.
But yeah, you're going to have to shave it at some point, dude.
>>720151194 I specifically mentioned balding. Of course any amount of recession is hair loss because well, hair is being lost. But recession is not an indicator of balding as some people falsely believe.
>>720151370 Balding means progressing towards being bald. Bald means little to no hair.
Many people recede to a norwood 2 or 3 and then the recession/hair loss stops. So no, receding is not balding. If the recession leads to a bald head then yes it's balding. But this isn't innately how recession works.
Bro as long as you still have hair in your wedding photo you're good. That's the one pic everyone refers back to after you get old. ALSO, do you want your kids to know you when you had hair? Or to be able to remember you with hair? If so, then you better start knocking up that Stacy
>>720142328 Yeah, I'd get it if I was balding. Well worth the pain. Why accept your stupid fate, when it's just nature who fucked up and made some hairs on top of your head super sensitive to testosterone? That's just stupid.
