I’m a 20 year old male concerned about possible hair loss. Baldness does not run in my family, as my dad is 50 years old and has not lost any hair, and my grandpa is 75 and is just now getting a bald spot. I’ve noticed that when I comb my hair, some hairs fall on the sink, leading me to get worried.
My hair is naturally thick, but recently I’ve felt that my right edge (possibly thinning) and front part of my hairline has changed shape. Is this a sign of a receding hairline, or is it maturing? If so, should I see a doctor for a Finasteride prescription? I don’t think Minoxidil works on the temple area, so I won’t bother trying.
You are probably developing a maturing hairline as you still have a juvenile hairline present. This usually occurs between the age of 17-29 in men. Finasteride is not going to impact your transition to a mature hairline.
