I am a 22 male with fine blond hair, and ever since I can remember I have always had fine hair (used to be able to pull out chunks of my hair) however since the age of 16 I have become obsessed with my receding hairline. Don’t get me wrong, I accept the fact I’m going bald and just waiting for the day to come where it becomes TOO noticeable so I can get the clippers on them. What I don’t understand is …. why now? I cant even grow a beard.
Surely it cant be normal for my hair to be falling out and I cant even grow a proper beard? I got stumble on the chin and upper lip but nothing else….. I am starting to think maybe I have a underlying illness that I don’t know about. Could it be because I am a smoker and that why my hair is falling out? Is it normal for someone to be going bald that hasn’t properly finished puberty yet? or maybe I am just being paranoid? I don’t know.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Sorry to hear of your hair loss. It seems you have accepted that inevitable. Unfortunately, if you are destined to go completely bald (Norwood 6 or 7) it usually starts very early, possibly as you described.
Growing a beard has nothing to do with scalp hair loss. It is in itself a genetic trait (like balding). Some men just never grow a beard. Also, smoking is bad for you (hey, I’m a doctor — what did you expect me to say?).
