I think you may be confused about what NW2 is. Most people seem to think NW3 is NW2. A lot of men hit NW2 in their 20s, most in their 30s. NW3 is pretty severe recession.

Yeah, most men will hit NW2 at some stage, but then most men will go bald to some extent.

The reason NW2 is included on the chart you posted is because it's often considered hair loss. Norwood originally said that NW3 is the first stage of hair loss, but if someone is NW2 and miniaturising, they are balding.

In my view, there's a difference between the mature hairline and NW2. For example, I had a juvenile hairline until I was around 23. I then developed a mature hairline, with no further recession, until around 27, at which point my hairline (very slowly) began receding. I have a NW2 hairline now, 7 years later, at least according to B*sanga.

In reality, most people won't notice the difference between NW2 and mature hairline, it's only people on hair loss forums that debate these trivial issues.

I try to space out topicals and use Zix in the am + Min at night. That has worked for me.

Hey how do you mix the stuff? Does it actually work?

Update

Had my hair checked out by my derm

I was starting to lose ground during lockdown (crown, hairline) when I had no access to LLLT and was just using zix.

Since regrown thinning hair on my crown and hairline. Zix alone might not be enough.

He has some recession, that's technically balding, but normal. What I mean is I don't think he was ever going to go beyond a mature hairline considering his age, ethnicity, and density. If you're going to recede more than that you generally will have more thinning on top along with it.

It’s not just recession but parts of my hair are thinning

Not sure why this is even a discussion

I’ve shared photos of clearly thinning areas of my scalp , temple points and hairline
It's to measure the aggresivity of your hair loss to use it as a reference

Hi, as you've likely seen Ive recently started minoxidil. So far im on day 64, and I think Ive crested and am starting to see the signs of regrowth (starting with no shedding). Anyhow, I think evaluating every 15 days is the milestone I've picked for myself. Suggest you consider the possibility. Im pretty sure, I'll have definitive evidence one way or another by the end of September/early October - feel free to tune in.
