Hi Dr. Rassman.

First of all thank you for taking the time to post here, it has been an invaluable source of information for me regarding hairloss, and is much appreciated.

Secondly, could you please take a look at my included photographs (you may publish these if you wish) and give me an approximation of my hairloss?

My hairline has definitely changed since I was a juvenile as I had a freckle on my original hairline which has moved higher since my childhood. In some photographs the hairline looks ok, but in others when I pull back the hair you can see some corner/temple recession.

I was just wondering if I was still in the bounds of Norwood 2/mature hairline category or if my hair exceeds this? The density is pretty good on top.

I am 32 years of age. Thanks

People sure are sending in some blurry, poor quality photos lately. Regardless, thanks for letting me publish these.

You have early changes consistent with a mature hairline, or a Norwood class 2. If you are concerned, see a doctor who will be able to examine you in person, map your scalp for miniaturization, and provide hair bulk analysis to give you a better sense of your hair loss (or lack thereof).

At 32 years old with a strong hairline and good density on top, you probably don’t have much to be concerned about, though.
