Hey! Awesome forum. It have helped me extremely much.
I am born in 1987. First noticed my balding at the low age of 18... Every single male on my fathers side of family is balding, most NW4+. I dont know so much on my mothers side, but those i seen have balded pretty muuch too. My own father is a very diffuse NW2. 1 - 0 in genes favour so far...
I was in denial the first years until i got to the age of 21. Wherever i styled my hair i had 200+ hairs in the sink so it was etremely aggressive. My temple was in an aggressive v shape and it was diffuse lot all over expt my crown. Tested a crap remedy that did not work until i found this site at age 22. 2 - 0 to genes for the crap that did not work!
To be continued... Pics and regimen longer down!
Before ANYTHING. The hair is long, and look at my god damn temples and you can see the diffuse.
1 Year after. Used NISIM. Still shedded a lot, all it did was giving the hair a nice look. Did nothing to MPB. Its long here so it covers the temples somewhat
