    family history: my dad started balding in his 40s and no1 is bald in my moms side. I definitely feel like my density behind my hairline have decreased. Attached photos now and when I was a kid. Any opinions would be appreciated.

    Should I use finastride to maintain my thin 1/3 of my front scalp or should I wait a while and see where my genetics will take me?

    The pics are way to close, blurry and low-res to come to any conclusions.

    The best way to tell if you are losing your hair, at an early stage, besides obvious recession, receding temples and lots of hair fall, is to take GOOD pics and compare every 3-6 months.

    I mean it doesn’t look that bad atm, you could post a picture that is of better quality, will make it easier to tell.

    Am hoping I could keep a good amount of hair in my 30s, even if i had start taking finastride. My dad was a Norwood 2 in his late 30s, which is why am surprised that I am balding at 22.

    Since I have nothing to compare it to, I would say you don't look like you have any significant hair loss. It is not unusual to have some recession in your 20s. It is what is referred to as a "maturing hairline". So you go from a Norwood 0 to a 1. It may stop there for quite a while. That is why you need to take follow up pics in let's say, three months, and compare.

    Do you see significant hair fall? More than 100-150 hairs a day in the shower, on your pillow or in your hairbrush?

    A reputable doctor would NOT put you on meds that may have significant side effects, one of which is shedding, so you could lose hair that you never would have, had you not gone on them. There are also hormonal and sexual side effects.

    Just chill, and check back in 3 months.

    10-20 hairs per shower. Ya I will just wait and compare photos in the next few months. Thanks for the advice.

    Yeah it looks fine atm , I would say keep an eye on it , you don’t need any meds as of right now but if it receedes further then consider treatments.

    I personally don't think that at this time, you have anything to worry about at all. Some recession is completely normal in men that aren't going to go bald (so unless you want to keep a completely juvenile hairline, you're fine)

    I would let go of any worries for now, and look again in a years time. I would predict that you will see some more recession throughout your 20's, but that's 100% normal and doesn't always mean you're going to go bald.

    Also! We're young, I'm almost positive that in our lifetime we will have a genuine cure for baldness.. I said it in another thread, even if we have to put up with a shaved head for a while, at some point in our lives we will be able to have full heads of hair again!

    But with that said, at this point you shouldn't be worried at all! Take it easy

    I'm sure a 5000 graft hair transplant could fix that!

    lol your hair is very similar to mine and for a long time i was worried but its just part of aging. when i was a kid i had extremely thick hair and then suddenly i could see individual hairs and fell into paranoia about losing hair. So i know where you're coming from but i think we're good lol.
