    I’m looking for a trusted specialist to look at my hair and give me the best options moving forwards, I have seen multiple trichologists but feel they are not as authentic as they seem. I’d like some recommendations if possible before thinking of medication/transplant.

    I’m 25yr old mixed race male with frontal
    loss and seemingly diffuse loss too

    Most trichologists will pretty much give you the same advice: get on Minodixil and Finasteride, except they are more than happy to charge you an extortionate membership price just for something you can easily source yourself. They may throw in some check-ups involving taking photos and giving you a deep clean followed by a quick laser comb session lasting less than a few minutes.

    If you have not already, look into a regime involving the big three known treatments.

    If you're looking at going down the transplant route, try to stabilise your hairloss before the procedure for better long term outcome. Research thoroughly on the surgeon using personal testimony on forums etc. However, if you insist on having it done in UK, expect the prices to be high and results to be poor, so I would highly suggest looking outside UK instead.

    I sincerely appreciate your response, do you know much about the big 3? I’m looking at jumping on it as I have a lot of hair to save but i’ve heard after roughly 10-15 years they stop working, thus meaning I will lose hair again at an accelerated rate as well as not having an alternative to get on as the effectiveness would have stopped.i’m just apprehensive that’s all!

    There are bundles of information and discussion on the big 3 in the relevant sections. It's worth having a good look at those and decide what you're prepared to commit to and the potential side effects.
    Everyone's body reacts differently to each treatment, and there is no guarantee it would give you improvement (and in rare cases they even got worse), but most users do respond to a combo of Finasteride/Minodixil etc. It's up to you to decide what you're willing to take on. There is no concrete evidence suggesting these known treatments stop working after 10-15 years. It is quite possible that over such a length of time their aggressive balding simply over powers the treatment. Also it is recommended that even after a transplant, it is best to stay on these treatments so you don't lose ground again. I personally would not let the inconclusive suggestion of what may happen 10-15 years later put you off, however if you fail to tackle your current hair loss, it may be too late in a few years when it progresses further.
