Hi, Im 21 and I have had thin hair since atleast 9th grade. It has gotten progressively thinner since high school, but my hair line is not moving. Rather, I experience a general thinning all over like you see in old women. I know i get it from my mothers side because she also has really thin hair while my father has a healthy head of hair. What is my best option to stop this gradual thinning?? My dad is a doctor so he prescribed me Propecia which i used for 5 months with pretty much no results. I feel that most of the products on the market are aimed at male pattern baldness while there is nothing for men like me. Could you please recommend a course of action. Thanks alot.
You need to get a proper diagnosis. Get your head mapped out for miniaturization and determine if you have Diffuse Unpatterned Alopecia (DUPA). This is a condition that is similar to female genetic hair loss, except that it occurs in men of all ages. Rather than write a book on your management, I suggest that you get your doctor (father) to connect with us. Have him start by reading the article I wrote titled Follicular Transplantation: Patient Evaluation and Surgical Planning?” and find DUPAwithin the text of the article.
