    To be honest my hair is a lot thinner since starting. But I think it’s been holding for the last few months.

    Here are a few more pics from today. Didn’t put any product in (toppik or hairspray) and I’ve been laying in bed for a while so I think it makes my hair push down a bit.

    I’m curious what you guys think about my progress? I know it’s gotten worse since day 1 but it may have slowed/stopped down in the past few months.

    Can those of you who have followed my story let me know if it seems to be getting worded based off my recent pics compared to pics months ago?

    I do not see any differences compared to day 1 honestly (looking at the pics on page 1) so based on the pictures i would not say it is worst than day 1. But you know your hair better than us. Are you sure this is not a natural swirl. I have seen many non balding people (norwood 1 with no sign of hair loss) with a similar swirl.
    You dot not need any toppik in my opinion.

    I appreciate these two replies a lot. But trust me it looks worse in person. Also, if you go back a few pages you can see my hair wet and with oil in it and you can easily tell the extent of the damage. I’m sure I’m a bit delusional with BDD but I do 100% have male pattern baldness.

    I definitely recommend you guys checking out some of my photos posted earlier.

    I am not sure if you are exposing your crown on purpose in the pic to show us, but if you aren't then you should be able to easily cover it with a few brush stokes. Your crown is not that bad to be honest.

    No that’s what my hair looks like after showering and laying in bed for a while. If I come it in a different direction scalp shows in another spot. Toppik does well enough tho

    Your crown is a bit thin but not that big of a deal. Your hair is thick so it just might be your cowlick. You know your hair better than most. I think it would look a lot thicker if you just cut the sides to a 2, fade up with longer hair. But thats just my 2 cents.

    Your hair looks great tho dude, keep doing what your doing.

    You are not balding. Consult a dermatologist

    Not sure, I definitely have lost some hair since the first post. But thanks a lot man!
    Thanks bro! I’m gonna get a haircut soon, I might take the sides a bit shorter than last time.

    I have consulted a dermatologist and unfortunately I am balding. But I appreciate you thinking I’m not haha, that’s a boost of confidence.


    Alright boys here’s a few pics I just got after waking up, combed my hair a bit, it’s very slightly damp. I’m not sure if it’s looking worse in the past few months or if I'm maintaining. BDD is a b**ch n I think all of us here suffer from it a bit. I never go out with my hair looking like this, I always put toppik in and it covers that thinning pretty well.

    Looks like a cowlick to me. Which means finasteride is working for you at least for maintenance. If I was you I’d just get out of this site asap and come back only if things start to get worse.

    It has gotten worse tho bro. The pics don’t do justice I believe. When I look at with a handheld mirror it’s rough. Every angle shows different scalp so it’s hard to capture that with the camera. I’m gonna take a few wet hair photos after I shower.

    Thanks though man. That’s great to hear. How’s your hair doing?

    So here are wet photos. Brutal. But I posted some wet photos on previous pages and I’m not sure how much worse it’s gotten.

    A few of these are out the shower untouched, and the others are after rubbing my hair with a towel for a few seconds.

    Why haven't you started using minoxidil if you are so unhappy about your hair?

    I still think it actually looks better than your earlier pictures.

    The daily chore, and also because of the initial shed that might make it extremely difficult to cover up. I’m ambivalent about minoxidil.

    Thanks man, that’s nice to hear.

    You might get a shed but you're hair will look instantly better. And I don't understand how you can call minoxidil a chore while also applying topik everyday.

    Minoxidil makes your hair greasy for a while and I have to wait before going out. It’s definitely more of a chore. I’ve put minoxidil in my hair, so I’m not talking out of my ***.
