I’m 26 years-old, 27 in October. Until around the end of last year, my hair loss hadn’t been very bad at all and was progressing much slower than the other men in my family. I was about a 3A/3V until I started noticing a bald patch appear on my crown about 4 months ago. Since then, the area around the patch has gotten noticeably thinner, and the front part of my hairline has also started to thin out. I started taking Minoxodil about a week ago as well as a few biotin tabs every day, and the shedding hasn’t been so bad. What is my future going to be like?
At 26, the advancement of your balding pattern is a bad omen for future balding. You should see a doctor experienced in this field. The drug Finasteride can slow, stop and sometimes reverse the balding but rarely will Minoxidil do this. The only real solution is hair transplant surgery so you might start, at the least, familiarizing yourself with this process. Look at this post to see results on patients who took Finasteride.
