Thanks for this site, it’s nice to see I’m not the only one worrying about these things. I’m a 20 year old male whose father has a full head of hair, but there is some balding in members of
my mother’s side. I wear a spiked hairstyle and I’ve noticed that up close many front hairs fall forward and do not spike up with the rest of my hair. This didn’t used to happen in my teens.
You cannot tell unless looking up close. I’ve also noticed some thinning, also when seen up close. The rest of my head is fine. Are these “fallen hairs” something to worry about?
Perhaps you need a stronger hair spray (or whatever product you may use). Maybe apply more product to those “fallen hairs” and see if you can get them to stand upright like the rest of the soldiers. Some hairs not standing up with the rest is not cause for concern, though. Just having balding in your family line isn’t reason to get worked up about possibly losing your hair — genetic hair loss can skip generations. If you see loss though, that is another story entirely…
So if you are concerned about hair loss or balding, you should start by having your scalp hair examined for signs of miniaturization and/or patterns of thinning. This would give you a better idea what is going on with your hair.
