I’m not sure if my crown is thinning or not…. but its a strange shape…around 2inches circle in diameter with a bit of hair in the middle. The hair around it is quite dense, especially when wet, although when dry because it parts in all different directions it looks thinner.
Is this a normal crown pattern (to have hair in the middle and a circular thinner area around it)? I’ve had it for at least the last 5 years and i dont think its changed. But i also do have a slightly thinned hairline…maybe nw2-3.
I have seen this type of “donuting” in men who have had transplants in the crown years ago, and then had to face balding around the transplanted hair. The progression of their hair loss causes the crown to continue thinning, besides the permanently transplanted hair in the middle.
I do not recall seeing it in a natural balding pattern, though.
