I’m 60. My brother has been bald for years, but I had kept most of my hair until the last 18 months during the stress of a business failure. Now it is very thin on top with a bald spot on the back. I began using 5% minoxidil about 45 days ago. Is there anything else I can do to at least stabilize the situation? Thanks.
It is rare to see balding start at your age, but we are programmed to have a certain number of hair cycles in hairs in different parts of the head. Maybe you have reached the age limit and number of cycles of some of your hair. It is not unusual for it to appear in patterns. Taking Propecia (finasteride) would probably slow it down and could reverse the thinning areas, considering that the entire process is recent, which is when the drug works best.
