Hello Doctor. I am a 20 years old and I had suffered from thin hair all my life. Since I was young, it was noticiable that I didn’t have a full set of hair, and as I grew older, my hair just mantained the same volume. There is no actual hairloss, but there is just not enough hair. Something maybe like half of the density it should have. I’ve been taking Propecia for 2 years now, and although the hair seems to be thicker, there is no hair regrowth at all. I’ve always wonder is this is something different from baldness, given that I dont lose hair; i just never had enough hair to look normal. If so, what are my options.
Thank You so much
I believe that your see through thin hair is just your genetics. Now that you are getting into the dating scene, you are more sensitive to your see through hair than you were before. We used to call people like you “towheads”, which implied see through hair. When I was young, people would always rub my hair for luck because it was thick, gorilla like and non-see through.
First, you need to have baselines made with good measurements for miniaturization, as I have talked about in many previous blog answers. It is critical to know if you are actually losing hair or just have thin hair and a changing view of your hair situation. This will give you comfort, at least, for knowing. If by chance that I have guessed right and you are a “tow head” and have no balding, then this is a situation that can be adequately address with hair thickening agents, of which there are many on the market today.
And yes, “towhead” is a real word. Here’s a link to towhead in the dictionary.
