I am a 24 years old guy with a clear cut norwood 3. My hairline receded obviously, I am not so sure about all around density but I guess the hair are thinner (cannot tell visually but it feels off). So it is pretty clear that I will follow my father’s pattern of balding which means I am headed to norwood 7. The thing is, my father only lost hair on top at 35-37. Also , he had an afro which means his density loss was hard to notice until it really advanced. My hair were always thinner than his, they are straight so I feel I might be noticebly bald faster.
Just out of curiosity, does on follow your father’s pattern and timeline regarding baldness? Would be nice to know if it is wise to look at when my pops lost his hair.
Some people do and some don’t, I just saw a man yesterday who has a very bald father and brother who were bald before they were 28, but he was like you with a Class 3 pattern at 30 years old. He was worried he might go like his dad, but I told him that very bald men are always bald by the time they are 30, so not to worry.
