holy shit why is my hair thinning im only 20 fucking 2, or am I just tweaking? it doesnt look thin at all if i wear it down, but the top is starting to thin too

how the fuck do I stop tbis shit? a number of things make male pattern baldness particularly upsetting to me, idk how I could live with it

How bad does it have to be to get prescribed something for it? What medicines work best to stop this shit? Minoxidil? Finasteride? spironolactone?

Get topical finasteride. No side effects. Really fucking expensive.
Believe me, I'm only 9 years older and I wish I had started when I first showed signs of thinning.
Source: been there, and have had three - THREE - hair transplants. Way more expensive than Fina. It was worth it, but damn I wish someone would have told me to start early with stopping my hair loss.

Ok thanks I probably will in the mean time.

I was serious though about wondering if spiro would help tho, because I'm probably gonna get on that sooner rather than later, so everyone can make fun of me and I can make my life 100x harder

also like i said, it doesnt really look like its thinning at all unless i wear it back, so im hoping i can nip this in the bud before it becomes a serious problem and im relegated to wigs or transplants

If you're 22 and thinning then I can understand why you'd feel self conscious but you only have to stall a couple of years before being bald is just accepted. In a few years you can just shave the whole lot off with it, medication to restore/stall your hairline will work in the meantime. Being thinning in denial is a bit sad, being bald is normal.

It doesn't stop you getting a job or getting laid or anything else. It doesn't even stop you being in a metal band. It means you have to be an evil sorcerer not a wizard but that's about it. Of all the parts of you to whither and fall of it's probably the only one which might increase your chances of getting laid. If you were really into doing shit with your hair it might be a blow but suddenly you've got a lot more free time not washing and drying and styling it.

Just fuckin cut it off bro. And then roll with it. When people say some shit just make a joke or whatever. I have hair thicker than probably 95% of the population. I mean, it has no curl and it can almost be brushed out into a halfro just due to density.

I just cut the shit off completely. Nobody cares. If you're pale and fat/skinny they just think you're a neo-nazi and people avoid you which if you are on /qq/ you probably want anyways. And if you aren't pale or are fit they just think you're in the military. Nobody gives a shit, really.

I think the best thing a guy could do when balding is to buzz it off and rock the 'dome. Just think about Jason Statham or Bruce Willis. Losing your hair is a very normal thing for guys, and if I remember correctly it happens to roughly 40% of guys before the age of 40. There's nothing wrong with being bald, it's not the end of your world, and the only thing that's actually going to fuck you up is being one of those guys who can't accept the fact they're going bald.

I'm sorry for your loss. It'll be okay though and you'll do just fine,

Oh I think I get it.
Yes, transitioning will stop the hair loss/MPB.
The sooner you start the better, both for topical fin and well, transitioning in general.
If you are transitioning you won't need to worry about sides from oral fin either, which is lowered sperm count, lack of sex drive, gynecomastia.
Good luck either way.

Ok thanks, I'm gonna start with topical minoxidil on Tuesday when I get paid, because that's the only thing I have access to immediately, I have no fucking clue when I can get a prescription for either fin or HRT but hopefully sooner rather than later and the topical works in the mean time,

honestly i think a lot of it is because it's kind of wiry and I had product in it anyway, it doesn't look thin at all when I have it down, I'll just wear it like that until the this shit starts to work

>lowered sperm count, lack of sex drive, gynecomastia

good, good, good

how do genetics for female pattern baldness work anyway? i know for men it's your mom's dad, but if I start on HRT how will that affect it?

The treatment for pattern baldness is antiandrogens regardless if male or female. Estrogen is likely protective against baldness as well.

>The role of estrogen and progestogen drugs in the treatment of hair loss and growth is also unclear. Estrogen is made when androstenedione or testosterone are modified by the enzyme aromatase. It is synthesized in the ovary and other peripheral tissues and then travels to its receptors, some of which are located in scalp hair follicles (Thornton et al., 2003a, Thornton et al., 2003b). At the scalp follicle, estradiol has been reported to induce aromatase activity (Hoffmann et al., 2002). Estrogen has been hypothesized to have a protective role against hair loss on the basis of the observation that patients with lower estrogen levels during menopause, postpartum, or treatment with aromatase inhibitors or selective estrogen receptor modulators are more likely to develop FPHL (Atanaskova Mesinkovska and Bergfeld, 2013, Park et al., 2014). Another supporting observation is that in the frontal hairline of women, which tends to be spared with FPHL, there is a higher level of aromatase enzyme when compared with the rest of the scalp (Levy and Emer, 2013). This variation in hair loss could be the result of locally increased levels of estradiol or decreased levels of testosterone and DHT that is secondary to greater amounts of conversion.

>Spironolactone is a potassium-sparing diuretic that functions as a competitive aldosterone antagonist and inhibits the interaction of testosterone and DHT with intracellular androgen receptors in target tissues (van Zuuren et al., 2012, Yazdabadi and Sinclair, 2011). Spironolactone also weakly inhibits androgen synthesis (Price, 2003). The anti-androgen effect is more commonly used in hirsutism and acne but has been used successfully at 100- to 200-mg daily doses to treat FPHL (Sinclair et al., 2005). One retrospective study of survey data showed that nearly 75% of women reported stabilization or improvement of their hair loss after treatment with spironolactone (Famenini et al., 2015). Similar results were obtained in an open intervention study from 2005 (Sinclair et al., 2005). While the vast majority of published data discusses adult patients, one case report described the visible improvement of FPHL in a 9-year-old patient after 6 months of therapy (Yazdabadi et al., 2009).

Hey, careful with minoxidil because some people experience an increase in hair loss before it stabilizes and grows back, which takes a few months. Plus, you cannot use it if you have pet cats or work where there are cats like a vet's office, because the smallest amount will kill them in a pretty painful way.

If you do have cats, like myself, before I got topical fin I saw great results with DS Labs Revita Hair Stimulating Shampoo, in combination with two drops of rosemary oil and two of prostaglandin rubbed on my scalp after micro needling the hair loss area post-shower. Prostaglandin doesn't need a script, it's basically generic Latisse, you can order it online. I alternate that with the topical fin now and use the shampoo and I have tons of tiny hairs sprouting back.

Best of luck with everything. Anything else you want to know I'll be happy to answer.

Literally just this one, so I'd suggest putting down the crack pipe.

This is kind of dumb.

Why shouldn't someone try all the options they can afford prior to giving up completely and shaving? A lot of self-esteem issues and severe depression is tied to hair loss, some people can't "get over it" and suffer significant mental distress over it.

Medication works quite well for the majority of men, and there's increasing success with women and meds - and for those with the financial means, transplants are a great, permanent solution. It's 2019 and transplants are relatively cheap and undetectable if you get a good surgeon.

I see this as akin to telling someone who is diabetic to just accept their foot amputation and imminent death rather than change their diet or take insulin shots. Life isn't 0 or 100 bud. There are always options, and it's best to explore them before throwing in the towel completely.

Well you're wrong.

I mean you are attached to your hair physically and emotionally. But you don't rely on it for day to day tasks. The truth is that what is falling out is your self image. Unlike feet and deaths they grow back, it's not easy but it happens. That foot, that's never coming back. I mean I understand it sucks but when you put it like that get a grip and stop being so melodramatic. I had sympathy but actually if you really think it's like dying and losing a foot then the problem isn't the top of your head it's actually inside it.

Now a tgirl I get them being worked up. It will hinder them assuming their identity in future so that's different.

Being bald doesn't make it harder to live as a man.

Holy shit, thank you for recommending Revita. I've been on it for just two weeks now and it's seriously made my hair a lot healthy and stopped the thinning so far. When I comb my hair I usually end up with the comb filled with hairs, now I get none or one or two. It already looks a lot thicker and healthy and I have no doubt that it's already stopped the thinning and will reverse what little there was. I already checked when it's pulled back without product and when it's parted down the middle there's no thinning at all, and there's hardly any thinning on the top to begin with. Maybe in a couple months I'll post back with results, but since it was so minor to begin with I doubt there'll be a dramatic difference. Really a big reason that picture looks so bad is because it was really thin and wirey PLUS using a dense product. The Revita helps with the former and I don't foresee a reason to ever to the latter again. I was worried this might exacerbate the hair loss, but now I feel comfortable continuing my crash diet and intense exercise regiment to lose as much weight as possible in these next few months before starting hrt

The caffeine isn't really that important I don't think, the main thing is a DHT blocker, I've been on Revita for less than a month now and I can see a lot of new growth, hairs like a 1/4-1/2'' long and if I hold them back along with the rest there's almost no visible thinning at all. I'm gonna make it.

>Many of the Propecia lawsuits allege that victims experienced sexual side effects after they stopped taking Propecia and/or Proscar — which, at 5 mg of finasteride, is five times the strength of Propecia and is specifically intended for men with enlarged prostates. About 50 lawsuits allege that Propecia caused or can cause prostate cancer, testicular cancer, or male breast cancer, according to a financial statement from Merck. Others have sued Merck for memory loss or a combination of sexual side effects and memory loss.

nb dp if you're going starting to lose your hair just accept it, rock it, and then shave it off when it stops looking good. thinning hair looks weird on young dudes because it's abnormal but the only time it looks bad is when you're one of those people who has nine whole hairs left and combs it over like nobody gonna notice

If you bothered to read the thread, you'd see OP is trans and shaving one's head is obviously not an option for the majority of females and certainly not for people just beginning their transition. FFS.

Also it pisses me off when people advise shaving it as if there's not literally 50 other things to try first. Transplants are cheaper by the day and have permanent and undetectable results. Stem cell regrowth is probably 3-5 years away.

I mean, unless you're a poorass POS who still lives at home because you can't earn grown-man dollars. In that case, yes, shave your head and when you're done shaving your pitiful dome you can use the razor to slit your wrists.

If I'd have had ANY advanced knowledge of how incredibly fucking amazing the result would be, I'd have paid ten times that, easily. More. With zero hesitation. I sure as hell am going to continue avidly recommending transplants to other guys (and transgirls) as a viable option because.. it fucking is.

If you don't have money and you want something bad enough, you'll fucking GET the money. Look at all the trans people who fund tens of thousands for their own surgeries. For some people it's a shiny new vag, for others it's the hair they had when they were 18. For some, both, maybe, like OP.

Sorry to hear you have to make hard choices and give up important things to scrounge that amount together. I had to give up.. mmm, about a month of dining out every night. I recommend spending more time on a good side hustle and less time on the internet being mad.

I agree, I just think that having your shiny 18 year old hair is a low priority unless you need it to pass as a woman. That for anyone who is a cis man (yes a tangent I know) that there's probably things they could get that money for. Personally for me it's not living paycheck to paycheck and a new house. It's happening just need to save more and get another promotion to finish the job. So I know you're right about making it happen. I just dispute that it's not a dumb thing to reach that hard for when it's not going to affect your quality of life.

My office is full of bald guys and they don't miss it. They all picked different things to hair and all live good lives. It hasn't impeded shit, it hasn't made them less attractive, or caused them ridicule, it hasn't stopped their careers or hobbies, it doesn't cause them grief with stereotyping by others. Then again on top of that I work day to day with the Fire and Rescue Service and being bald makes their life easier, if it's not there it can't get snagged in gear or burned off. Senior management is about 50% hair free and they don't even stand near fires any more though. So maybe I live in a particularly baldness accepting corner of reality.

Be yourself, don't be a gender, do what you like and makes you feel good. Stop worrying so much. Be unique.

>don't be a gender

some people aren't, I really wish I wasn't, that would be cash

also i think i should make it clear that i'm not transitioning because I'm worried about my hair thinning out, but that would be an incredibly funny bit

I was already going to do that, I meant in the mean time

Also it's almost completely gone after a month on Revita and some dumb caffeine conditioner.

I'm really starting to think though that it was ACTUALLY starting to thin because of this crash diet I've been on and all the wellbutrin and ephedrine I've been taking. I've lost an absolutely obscene amount of weight in the past 6 months. It doesn't make sense if it's actually male pattern baldness for it to get so drastically better so quickly.

Is there anything I can do to counter that specifically? Like a supplement? Stopping the cut isn't an option at this point because it's now or never, I'd rather my heart blow out.

Maybe that really was just entirely a bad picture, I dunno, I'll take another one when my phones not dead. Kind of got the widow's peak thing going still but not nearly to the point of it being a tell unless it goes up a lot higher

Worst type of obnoxious pseudo-spiritual statement pushed more for political agenda purposes than any desire to see people be more open.

Right, well fuck. I think that's that just about sorted then! Maybe bit more to go, I'll just keep using this Revita stuff indefinitely and see where that gets me I suppose.

It must've actually just been mostly chemical/stress based hair loss and damaged hair and less androgenic alopecia than i thought it was, because it would've taken a lot longer to correct that. I'm really confident it'll still completely stop that from happening though until I finally don't have to worry about it anymore, which can not come soon enough, but in the meantime I can't even put into words how much better I feel now.

Thanks everyone!

Also I'm not trying to pull a fast one with that top one, I changed angles to show the really clear new growth on the very front there. I still have a widow's peak, but I've always had that that's not hair loss. I don't really mind it the way it is either because it only ever shows when I pull my hair back which I don't ever.

You do know what you're referring to is in no way a widow's peak, yeah? It's just a male hairline.

<---- This is a widow's peak. It is an extremely visible pointy V in the centre of your face.

Get ahead of it. What are you going to just live with an inverted mohawk and pretend like nothings happening? Naw dude. When the time comes, shave it all off. There must be baldness in your family history, just remenber, every single one of those fuckers got laid at least once or you wouldn't be here. Plenty of people succeed with baldness: Sam Jackson, Patrick Stewart, Ben Franklin, Leon Trotsky, Michael Jordan, Dave Chappel, Shaq. It's fine. You're gonna be fine.

OP is trans if you bothered to read, sooo... no shaving. Plus they realized starving yourself is a good way to make your hair fall out really fast.

Two, some men just can't "get over it" and it impacts them so severely that it causes measurable mental and physical distress and shaving is not, nor will ever be a viable option. And I mean, causes such severe dysmorphia they can no longer function.

So that's a dumb suggestion and about as useless as telling a depressed person to go out and enjoy life and try to be happier.

And this is well beyond what would be considered a normal reaction to an inevitable biological process and these people would be best served at a therapist's office where they can learn skills to help them be more comfortable with aging.

Functioning adults don't diagnose themselves and then look around at the world with their fingers out like the rest of us a bunch of marionettes set up to dance and tiptoe around it. If someone tells me they're having trouble coping with something I ask what their treatment plan is. I'm supportive of psychiatry, I'm the opposite toward whiners who don't use the tools available to them.

we're talking about a transsexual here though. by definition they can't deal with their biological reality.
I work out every day of the week and stick to a strict diet because I can't deal with the biological reality that my body wants to become fat and my legs want to atrophy because the reality of city living in a prosperous country means sugar is everywhere and leg strength is redundant in a sedentary world.

I wish we didn't have to be so focused on eachothers looks but that's the reality of the world we live in. your looks are a reflection of your social and especially your economical status. "why are you walking around bald when there's hairtransplants?"
I've lost count of the number of times female colleagues of mine have mentioned hair transplants as a solution to my thinning hair. the same colleagues that get nose and boob jobs. because plastic surgery is no longer just for the rich.

I look at people with unibrows with disgust because all I can think about is "why not just shave that off? razors are cheap. you don't have to look ridiculous". perhaps in 100 years, people will look at bald people in the same way. "why not just get a hair transplant? it's so cheap. you don't have to look ridiculous."

Yeah, I kind of lean towards this. Obviously it wouldn't be as distressing to a guy in nearly the same way, but if they felt 1/10th as upset by it as I do (did! >>531006) I can't blame them for wanting to do everything in their power to correct it.

>I work out every day of the week and stick to a strict diet because I can't deal with the biological reality that my body wants to become fat and my legs want to atrophy because the reality of city living in a prosperous country means sugar is everywhere and leg strength is redundant in a sedentary world.

i would normally suggest Wellbutrin and ECA here but apparently that makes your hair fall out, go figure, but I also support this specifically as well, because as I mentioned in the thread, I've been on extreme, substance assisted cut that I started as soon as I fully realized what I'd eventually have to do in life. Went from 230 to 150 in a matter of less than 6 months. I pushed my body to its limit with cardio to lose fat and weight training to build muscle in its place. I remain completely undaunted as I slowly taper back up my caloric intake to not shock my metabolism while I continue to lose another 10-20lbs and learn to eat like a normal, healthy person while tapering down for the last time on supplements.

All this after YEARS of struggling with weight and eating, because size and weight have become important to me in a way they never were before
