    As i said im in critical situation im balding since i was 14-15 now im 18.Its ruined my life.I was capitan of national team and i was playing proffesinoal i was the best(i dont want to mention which sport im playing)and then when its happened to me i wasnt the same guy and same player,you just cant imagine what is the feeling fans to make jokes with you .I also stop to going out with my friends cuz i was ashamed to talk with them and wach them in the eyes.In the few moments when i go out like 60% of the time my friends were talking about hairstyles and haircuts.its just destroyed me.I mean my case is a bit different cuz i wasn't normal guy i was just the best at everything i did(it was like from the top to the bottom, and from 22k followers to 4k in a year i just give a example i dont want to show off or somehing).I was never rejected from the girls never until this sh*t problem happened to me.I mean come on jesus i just wanted a few more years happy life.I know i will overcome this problem but its going to be when im 35 cuz its more normal to be bald guy then now,and i know you are going to tell me that the problems with the girls is not from the hair but belive me it is..cuz which girl at the age from 15-18 will like bald boy like me, girls dont think for personalites and thinks like that at this ages cuz they are too young...and belive me i was attractive but now im not...i even won a trophy for the most attractive boy at the school,and now just staying at my room like 2 years already and do nothing sometimes im crying when i remember the good old days when everything was fine,and also my parents are feeling bad about my situation because they can't do nothing they are also cuz of me but belive me i try to change my life and be more positive and happy guy but its not working i just want to get older faster and atleast live well 10-15 years from my life
    Also i never had a first kiss i never had sex life and things like that:(

    Hey mate thanks for sharing your story, I definitely understand how you feel and I'm sorry this is happening to you, I wouldn't wish this disease on my worst enemy.

    There will people here who will tell you to "man up" and stop being a "pussy" but it's perfectly ok to feel depressed about this, in fact normal, so if you need to vent about it that is perfectly ok.

    You can look into proven treatments like finasteride and minoxidil and see if you are ok to try them out. I would recommend though, before starting minoxidil, that you must be ok with sticking with it no matter what, because if you quit there is usually a massive shed. Do your research though and keep an open mind if this commitment is worth it for you.

    I would recommend you try your best to live your life as you would normally if this didn't happen, it's hard but there's not much other choice. There will be good days and bad days but the key thing is to keep persevering.

    Things like this show clearly how superficial people are in general and if you were older i would have said fuckem and move on, you don't need those people next to you, especially since you being so good at the sport you are doing and being good in general, at least from what you say... And even if you are young you don't need these kind of people near you but i have to admit that it is what it is and it's understadable, you are young, you want to live your life and enjoy it the most without having to deal with something that nobody would have to deal with, especially at this very, very young age...

    What a superficial and retarded species we are, you can be the best kid in your school at everything and because of the underdevelopment of the human brain at that age and for some even at older ages, you get ridiculed because of something that is out of your control, something that changes nothing in you as human, except your outside appearance...

    Unfortunately it is what it is, people and kids especially aren't gonna change, at least not in a good way from what it seems and i will give you the best advise i could give you, the advice i wish i would have listened to when i was your age also... You have 2 options, you either fight it and try to save the hair you have and maybe regrow some or get a transplant to fill the missing areas but with some risks involved, or you just accept it and f*** everything next to you that makes fun of you or judges you based on your appearance, from friends to girls and so on, you just go with the flow, trying to train yourself in being immune to these kind of things, every time when something similar happens just think that it's just the way people are, a bunch of superficial underdeveloped brainless monkies, at least the majority...

    With time is gonna get better, your gonna be more mature than people that aren't in your place and that don't have your life experience and with time all of these struggles will help you in making much better decisions in life, than people that didn't have to go through what you are going now.

    I know that it maybe sounds stupid, i know that maybe you won't see things now as you should see them but i'm sure that with time and more experience your gonna find an equilibrium and peace of mind with your appearance, whatever that appearance will be. Your a fighter from what you are saying and don't let some f*****g hair transform you into something else.

    There is no shame in being upset, depressed or whatever feelings you might have there but try to turn this hate and anger into something productive rather than just letting it destroy you from the inside, with time your body and mind will change and the more you let it control your life, the harder will be to take that control back. I know that it's way easier said than done but i know also that it's not impossible and even if we like it or not, it all depends on us, nobody is gonna come and save us, nobody is gonna care, human life is insignificant and nobody actually gives a f***, except maybe our families or some close friends, gf or wife, if you are lucky to have any of those of course, because there are some that are more unfortunate and alone also...

    So yeah, i wish you the best and good luck and if you feel yourself overwhelmed try to seek a good Cognitive Behavioural Therapy program it really could help you see things from a different perspective, it could discipline you more and help you react differently to the surrounding environment...

    Hey man, sorry to hear about your story. It does suck, especially so young. To be honest man you just have to do it. Do everything like a normal guy with hair would do even if you dont feel like it, its the only way to overcome these negative thoughts and bad energy. I know how it feels to have friends that get line-up’s and haircuts every 2 weeks and not have to worry about hair at all, and thats them and you’re you. It is ok to feel bad and terrible about your situation because you are at a loss but it is not ok to not try and feel better. What’s helped me is routine. Find a rountine and do it everyday, exercise, work, entertainment - it really works, it gets your mind off things. Anyway man, hope you feel better by taking action, whether thats mentally or physically with medications.

    Alright, the issue you have is you’re going for short-term results. This is an issue because any result you do gain from any medication is from long term-use. What I am saying is if your lucky enough to even see regrowth (rare) it wont happen till about half a year in. At which point it wont have a drastic cosmetic difference. If you want to maintain your hair for only 1-2 years, I would say you're out of luck.

    You are 18 years old. You are old enough to start Finasteride and Minoxidil. If you choose to use those two treatments it is very possible you will have a significant improvement in your hair in 6 months - 1 year.

    Go on finasteride and minoxidil ASAP. Then get a hair transplant at 22-23

    Yeah, give finasteride and minoxidil+ dermarolling(or 5mg oral min) 12 months, see how far that can get you then get a transplant for the rest. Of course i would also say HRT is an option, but a drastic one.

    I'm going to give you some hope.

    i start losing my hair at 17. I was completely depressed. I tried to hide it so much, was already norwood 2.5 at 20. heading to the Norwood 3+V at 22 i think.
    Then I joigned this forum which helped me a lot and gave me hope.
    I started finasteride at 20 et minoxidyl at the same time. Finasteride holded my hair loss not much regrowth et minoxidil did a little boost but nothing amazing.
    I'm using Dermarolling (With Dermapen) since 5 months and i can tell it's working, it's amazing that i'm soon Norwood 1.5 again. It's nice to wake up in the morning and not to have to worry about hairs. But it was a loooong road. I would have never thought that i would regain most of my hairs.

    I can give you some advices. If you lost your hairs recently you will likely to regrow them with Finasteride + minoxidil + Dermarolling
    I would recommand you to start Fina ASAP ! That's the most important part of the process, if you have any ES, you stop it. (I have none)
    Then i would recommand Dermarolling, it's more effective than minoxidil
    And if you re not satisfied, go minoxidil, but just in case you haven't gained back your hair.

    PS : Fina works on 80% of people, not 100%.

    I'm young too and it would suck to have a lot of hairloss in this age, but at the same time a lot of it is in your head. I've seen young ppl with a lot of hairloss and I don't think ppl viewed them too differently. My advice would be keeping your hair short and if you want, you could try some medication like some ppl adviced you to, but that would probably be more like delaying it. People can look good bald, even if they aren't like super masculine.

    A bad hair cut can draw a lot of attention. Imagine becoming bald at 18 which puts you in a very small minority and having the bald look not suit you very well (which happens more often than you think). people will definitely look at a bald 18 yo differently than others consciously or subconsciously. Better to treat it if you care about looks or accept it.

    i start minoxidil +derma roller before 5 days ..hair fibers are working good for me i use them about 2 years they saved my life so far,i mean you know how i look without them so im happy with them, and about finasteride maybe after a year or two i can start it because im still worried about my body...im okay with hair fibers but the problem is if someone touch me my balding is gonna be noticable its rly difficult guys also when im sweaty after traning its noticable again as well... so this is me with hair fibers this side is covored well but the another one is not covored well as that one Guys if you want i can post my results after 3-4 months using min+derma

    Mate honestly do your self a favour just go on finasteride now even start at a low dose maybe 3 Days a week or something. With hair loss that aggressive at your age minoxidil won’t be enough. Just do it now before it’s too late my biggest regret is not starting it at a sooner before the damage was done !!

    No way hair fibers, minoxidil and dermaroll would turn a NW5 into a <NW1.5 (less than 1%). Either this is an old pic or u r just trolling.
