    How many guys have thinning areas above the sideburns

    Hi guys
    I have just about gotten used to the fact that I am clearly thinning in the NW6 are and tackling it full on with the big 3.
    However I was reading an article about Diffuse Non-pattern Hairloss and it kinda freaked me out.

    my hair at the back and sides is clearly thicker than the top, especially the temple triangles and crown where my thinning is the worst.

    However the area above my sideburns in front of my ears is really thin. I also noticed that there is some thinning in a line across the very bottom of the back of the head.

    however the rest is very thick especially compared to thinning top,
    Does anybody else have this

    Cheers

    The sides of my head are terrible. Behind my ear is probably the worst. I also have a recceding hairline too.

    I do I was kinda hopeful at first because thinning on sides could mean a thyroid problem, but my blood work came back fine.

    It's a NW 8 sign too.

    kerzyguy's last pic. Thats how my sides look when I pull back my hair and I really doubt he is headed for nw 8.

    Cheers guys


    That kerzyguy's photo cheered me up a little, his hair is absolutely awesome but he has thinning in the area that i was worried about on the sides. I actually don't really care how it looks i was just concerned that it might rule out a potential ht somewhere down the line due to a poor donor area,

    Ah well
    just keep on the meds and see what happens,

    Re: How many guys have thinning areas above the sideburns

    Norwood 8!!!? i didnt know such a norwood existed. Is that like bald literally? My sideburns were like kerzyguy's two year ago. One of my sideburns is pretty thin now wtf. I asked a pharmacist what that could be and she said its nothing to worry about. Its just hair that is gentically sensitive to dht as we get older which can vary depending on your genetics its not male patternbaldness. I have mate who also has thin side burns but a full head of hair so i think she was right. Norwood 8 though scary. If i get that i wont be able to get hairmultiplication/clonning. On the otherhand however at least i wont need to shave my head when it finally happens.

    NW 8 doesn't exist, it's just a NW 7 extreme

    I see a lot of those guys with sideburns thinning and they are still thick on top, doesn't mean much in my book unless thinning on top and even then it doesn't mean automatic NW8.
    Probably the most important thing is that when things get really bad and the world looks its darkest, you just have to throw up your hands and say "Well, alright!" cause it's probably gonna get a whole hell of a lot worse.

    i dont feel that im thinning there at all, just the way the hair went today, as in your case, dont worry about it either, its probably nothing, like the other man said, unless ur thinning on top, dont worry, as u see in this pic, my sides arnt thinning or any of my hair for that matter, nw 2 with longer hair, makes a good coverup lol
