Hello Im balding as a 16 yo guy. My temples are already norwood 2 (but it doesnt matter as my hair covers it) BUT now recently I started shedding in the crown. When I brush my crown I find 5-7 hairs everytime. It didnt used to be so much a few months ago. And This is scary as fuck. But I dont know what to do. Should I start minoxidil? Please note that my crown balding isnt really visible yet and seems more like a cowlick, but this is terribly scary.
Im also concerned that minoxidil wont stop the shedding, will destroy my collagen and make me look older. Of course finasteride and other DHT related meds are out of the question here because of my age. What should I do?? Im really lost here, nobody believes me from my dermatologist to my family, they are all in denial.
Start off by getting a HAIRCHECK test ( https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-and-what-its-value/ ) to find out if you are really balding and then with a metric, you can follow the process over the years with yearly tests. As you treat the hair loss, you will know what is happening with the impact of the treatment.
