Great Question! Your final pattern is the pattern you inherit from your family (mother or father’s side). The drug finasteride will slow the transition to balding. However, it depends on the effectiveness of the drug in your situation. If your father and grandfather on both sides of the family had a Class 7 pattern, then it is likely that will also be your pattern. If you have great donor density, then it is possible that hair transplants can solve your balding problem as I have done in many Class 7 men with average or higher than average donor densities. You should find a great doctor who specializes in this field and build a Master Plan with that doctor so you can manage your hair loss. You will not be a hair transplant candidate until the age, at least, of 25.
