    I’ve been on finasteride for 18 months (check my story in the tell you’re story section) and during that time I believe my hair has mostly held up but probably thinned a bit. I just took pics of my hair slick back while wet and I’m curious what you guys think my norwood is now?

    I have a hole in my hairline that’s gotten a bit bigger in the last 18 months, but very slowly.

    My main issue was always the crown and diffused thinning, but now I’m getting a bit worried about my hairline.

    This is while styled, do you guys think people notice my recession? I’m 23 btw so it’s a bit early for a hairline like this, and may look a bit out of place.

    Doesn't even look like NW2 when styled. Just looks like a widows peak

    Thanks bro, but I’m definitely hair frauding. Here are two pics of my old, shitty hair style where I’d comb forward and reveal my crown.

    And a bonus pic of my hair with tea tree oil. This sh*t made me shutter when I took it about 14 months ago lol. I refuse to do it again, although it’d probably be the best way to see how it’s advanced since then.

    Oh, and here’s a pic of my fraud.

    MEGA TIP for anyone reading this now, or in the future... Combing your hair back will save your visible crown for a while, as long as you have a decent hairline.

    Lol wtf dude u have a fuckin Hollywood hair.. jesus f*** u look like an actor with that hair

    U should see what's a real nw2-nw2.5 looks like. Check my threads lmao
    I got Norwood 2-2.5 without your amazing density and its look 0/10
    Your hair looks 10/10
    You should thank god.

    What's your treatment? Because I'm fina also about 14 months and on minoxidill on and off and it's getting worse and worse tbh
    I'd probably lose my hair in couple of months without the treatments, so it did help me to maintain for these 14 months, but it's still getting worse.

    Hahaha bro thanks for the solid words... I’ve been on only finasteride. I’m pretty legit with taking it daily, sometime I miss a day but I don’t f*** around and miss weeks or anything. I believe my hair is thinner than when I started but it doesn’t looked that changed visually.

    here are some pics that show my situation a little more accurately...

    I know for 23 it's little pushed back, but it looks pretty good.

    Keep combing it back, at least your hairline is pretty good density wise, so you can swing it. It honestly looks pretty good if you can keep it there- NW2, maybe a bit more, but it passes for it.

    It's a good thing you stopped the bleeding, I'm sure there's been a subtle improvement, and without it, it'd be utter trash by now.

    Crown is thinner than the hairline. I think minoxidill is perfect for ya for make it thick and that's it. Your hairline looks amazing even when its wet.. I'd kill for your hair dude

    Keep watching your crown because its thinner than the rest.. think about minoxidill bro

    Good luck.

    Not really, it's a strong NW2. Anyone saying it's nw1, it's not. In the "styled" pictures, it sort of looks like a borderline nw1, but when you are pulling your hair back a bit, it's clear it's an nw2.
