When I was little I had an operation which resulted in a huge scar on my head. I cover it with my hair and am forced to keep it long enough to conceal it. Unfortunately for me I have hair loss in my family. Im 22 now with no signs of hair loss. I am scared to death that I will have my scar showing for everyone to see. Any suggestions?
Without knowing more details about your scalp scar (where it is on the head, how wide it is, how long it is, etc), it’s tough to offer any suggestions. If you have no hair loss at this point, that’s a good thing. Cross your fingers that you don’t have genetic male pattern baldness down the line, as it can skip generations. If you start noticing signs of hair loss, then you should see a doctor to get a treatment plan together. Until that happens, there’s no preventive treatment to use.
As for the possibility that your scar could show in the future, you could see a hair transplant doctor for options on how to disguise it (if it becomes noticeable).
