I hope this is not a stupid question. I know in a perfect world no man would ever go bald and we would all have perfect hair. But, since its not the case and I know most men have some degree of hair loss as they age.
My question is regarding men who started balding when they were 18, but with the aide of finasteride it has been a really really slow balding process. Do you usually notice that these men, once they are in their 30’s, they are a norwood 2-2a and then when they are in theirs 40’s they are a norwood 3-3a and then in their 50’s they are a 5-5a and then 60’s either a 6 or 7?
It’s not a stupid question, but I think you’re confused about what the Norwood classifications are for. The Norwood chart (see below) classifies the final patterns of balding. By final, it generally means that there is no going back. Of interest, the patients with the most advanced pattern of balding (class 7) usually get there in their 20s and rarely show up becoming a Class 7 at the age of 60. Norwood classes are not a guideline for balding by age or decade.
Finasteride can slow the balding process and in very young men without advanced balding, it may reverse crown loss and occasionally even frontal loss (as it did in my son). The projections you did in your question is the work of a dreamer.
