I started balding when I was 14 (yes 14), my hair was miniaturising on one side so I used minoxidil until I was 18, (which helped) But even when I was 17, one of my friends noticed that my crown was thinning. When I was 18 I used finasteride for a year (didn’t improve my hair much it just kept it from receding more). I then started finasteride again and was on it for another 6 months until I stopped a few months ago. I buzzed my hair but my hair loss is so bad I can see bald patches. (Now I’m 20) Is it too late to start finasteride again? Or do I just give up and go for a hair system as I don’t think surgery would be appropriate
Balding patterns in some strong family lines can be very aggressive. When this happens, it often doesn’t respond to finasteride and that is a bad sign at your age. You should get a good doctor who understands the issue of a Personalized Master Plan for you and you should work with that doctor in case you are one of these young men.
