Alright fellow Hair Loss sufferers, I started loosing my hair at around 19 years old, I didn't notice it much because it was only happening very slowly. My temples began to recede only slightly so it wasn't much of a big deal. But the past year really has been hell...I have been unemployed for over a year and have been going in and out of depression, making the situation worse. My crown has began to thin drastically at an alarming rate and my temples have receded much further back, and in general my hair has lost the texture that it once had. I understand male pattern baldness is not easy for anyone, why would we be here otherwise? But losing my hair like this in my early twenties has been responsible for a huge blow in my self confidence. I have always had really thick and beautiful hair that I would usually wear in long styles, I would often get compliments about my hair and it has always been something that I have liked about myself. I never thought I would lose my hair :unsure: I find that it is beginning to destroy my image and take over my life as it is always on my mind. I have tried to accept it and have considered shaving my head but I just simply cannot get used to the idea. I am not on any treatments other than Nizoral 2-3 times per week and Amino acids/Vitamins daily. I do not want to take propecia or Rogaine due to the sides and I am just uncomfortable about the idea of being on medication for the rest of my life. I had some money saved up to go traveling around the world, but I have sacrificed that money for a future hair transplant. I know I am young (22) and I was hoping that my hair would stabilize that I would not need to do anything for a few years or more, but it seems to just have slowed down (for now...) but it is still getting worse. I'm so sick of worrying about it that I just want something done, I know it is not recommended for younger people to have hair transplant's, but surely mine is at a stage now where I would benefit from one? I have had one consultation with Transform with Dr Bhatty who advised me to wait a year before considering a hair transplant. I really need some help from people who have gone down the hair transplant route. Has anyone on here had a good hair transplant in the U.K? Any help is greatly appreciated.
