    Is the hair right near the edge of my temple more brown than the rest of my hair that is black? It looks lighter.

    Today:
    Wet (I think it covers the thinning on my temples)

    I never expected to keep my juvenile hairline but I feel as if the hit my temples have taken is no longer “maturation”. For me I see miniaturization because of a disappearing pigment and overall the baby hairs around the area. Doubt it’s breakage because I don’t style my hair.

    You aren't even close to a mature hairline, you're a lot closer to Ross from friends ( The no hair loss guy. )
    You are also 28 and have more hair than most people your age, now go away.

    Looks like you'll probably follow your dad's path of Norwood 2 at 50.

    You have nothing to worry about

    Your profile says 28. You're still in good shape though! No hair loss

    I'd say that's about a Norwood 9...

    Just kidding. From the first pic it looks high on your forehead but I think that's just the angle. Your hair looks fine.

    Nah dude my natural hairline honestly is really high. It looked really weird before it changed, because the forelock was so far back but my temporal triangles where so far forward.

    Just because your father or grandfather is affected by baldness doesn't mean anything.

    My father has full hair and I have baldness genes.

    Don't worry, everything is ok with you. Good density.

    I wanna post these because I think they show my concern better. The other two fail to really show a difference in density, my hair is wet in these three pictures. I feel like my density at the hairline seems like 50% compared to the middle of my scalp. I have incredibly thick hair everyhwere else on top it seems(my sides are thin).

    Normally that porbably wouldn’t be bad u guess but compare it to the middle of my scalp.

    So here’s my temples, no one thinks there’s anything wrong with this for under a year?

    First two are about 7 months ago C0DAAB87-C5E4-4A34-818D-401DE0C863B5.jpeg D2B5BE76-BA68-452F-BCAE-E516FE1312B3.jpeg

    Here are two from today

    I see zero hairloss but if it helps you sleep better at night go ahead and start taking finasteride, no more than 0.25mg daily.

    First thing I'd do if I were you though is get on nizoral, that helps keep the scalp clean and reduces inflammation.

    My biggest issue with finasteride is the drop in free testosterone. Too important for my sport, plus if I don’t have an issue I’ve heard plenty of horror stories of people ruining their hair with it.

    So there’s nothing to be concerned about in any of these?

    The last image is showing the difference in growth, the hair only the very front of my hairline doesn’t seem to grow as fast or as long anymore.

    The other weird thing is it looks NW0 wet.

    So I included pictures of the middle of my scalp density so it can be compared to my hairline.

    If you look farther up in this thread I’ve been updating it showing changes. I understand I’m not “severe” or going to be bald tomorrow but I want to know if anyone else finds this concerning. If anyone needs other pictures let me know.

    Why is your username “GeneticsAreJustUnfair”?
    Everyone is telling you you have no hairloss yet you go on with pictures of your very good hairline.
    I think this is enough.
