    Hey all,

    My family on both sides is for the most part bald (Dad, his brother, Mom's brothers), aside from my grandfather on my mom's side. Grandfather on Dad's also bald.

    Somehow I made it this far -- but I think I'm starting to see the signs. I was wondering if you guys thought I should start treatment or if I am being paranoid. I am very angry at myself for not catching it before, when I could've kept my full head of hair.

    The hair loss is particularly aggressive on my right temple -- I can pretty easily see through the scalp when there is any kind of slightly heavy lighting around. When there is not, it is mostly unnoticeable. The left temple is not as bad, and I don't see much beyond the crown. Let me know what you think, and thank you all!!! What a great community.

    Yup there is definitely some mild-moderate hairloss going on.I ve noticed that we actually have the same pattern of baldness, my right temple is also receding significantly more than my left one and theres some noticable hairloss on the crown too. But dont worry its never too late to start treatment ! What i recommend you to do is go get some bloodwork done see if theres any nutrient deficiency ( ferritin).After that go pack yourself with some 5% minoxidil (rogaine),some biotin pills (1000mg) and a nettle hairloss shampoo, or at least thats what i did and i noticed already some baby hairs growing in just 2 weeks! Extreme measures include finasteride and Nizoral but i recommend seeing a dermatologist b4 using any.. Good luck again!

    I disagree with Jew. A "hairloss shampoo" and Biotin wont do anything to stop your male pattern baldness. You need a DHT blocker. Look into finasteride, and go talk to a derm. You still have good hair, and finasteride could maintain that for years to come. Jew is wrong, finasteride is not an extreme measure. Millions of guys take finasteride with good results and zero sides, and that is backed by scientific studies. Minoxidil could help get some regrowth and thicken up your hair, but it wont do anything to stop you male pattern baldness without finasteride.

    Yes.. listen to Pizzamanluigi, he is correct... finasteride isn't extreme lol, extreme would be duta or anything above that imo.

    It's certainly not a nutritional deficiency as that would present itself as a diffused hair loss across the entire scalp and not patterned such as yours. Shampoos do not work unless you have a scalp infection that is causing hair loss. Your temples certainly show signs of early male pattern baldness, a DHT inhibitor is really your only option to cease or retard the loss. You could try Minoxidil on the temples only as a temporary fix, and who know it could maintain for a bit however, it doesn't work for everyone. With that said, I am curious about your widows peak. Do you shave it?

    Hahaha, yes for some reason, I decided it looks a lot better that way.

    Just started Fina (my dad is a doctor, so I could get it right away) at 1mg a pop. I'm gonna hold off on the Minodixidil and probably will start using Nizoral. Does everyone think this sounds good? I hope I can maintain my hair for another 10 years, but I have come to terms that I have early MBP and am happy I caught it early.

    Lol dude dont shave your widows peak. It just looks weird and draws unnecessary attention to your hairline. Hair looks good though, and likely finasteride will keep it good for years to come.
