Dear Dr. Rassman,
I started losing my hair after using hair gel at the age of 15 and now i am 19 years old. i lose hair from the top of my head and from the sides, is there anything that i can do to stop the hairloss. also could you tell me please if i could get a hair transplant from the NHS in england for free, because the hair loss has caused me to become very depressed and a hair transplant would solve my depression.
Hair loss is not from hair gel. If your loss started around the time you started using gel, it’s a coincidence. I doubt England’s National Health Service (NHS) would just hand out hair transplants because you wanted one. Genetic hair loss is found in roughly 50% of all men, so your case is not unusual. To halt the hair loss, you should talk with your doctor about the genetic process and a prescription for Propecia if your doctor believes it is genetic in origin.
