I have read many forums on hair loss and I find yours to the best and most unbiased. My question has to do with balding progression. My dad started loosing his hair at 17 and progressed to what I would believe to be a Norwood 7. However my brother who takes after my Mom’s father has alot of hair except for a very slight recession at the temples and a slight bit at the crown… He has had this since he was 27 and even at 32 it has not progressed any further… Recently I myself have noticed that in my crown it is getting a little thin, in the exact same place as my brother. In your opinion would my hair pattern mostly resemble my brothers? I am now 22 with no real hair loss just a slight thinning of the crown, and worried that I could become a norwood 7 like my dad. I have recently went on propecia however just in case.
Just a guess, but I suspect that your father (with his Norwood class 7 pattern) had balding that must have been fairly extensive by the time he was 22. You could be following the pattern exhibited by your brother. Get your hair mapped out for miniaturization and you can make a better educated guess.
