Default Explain this for me?

Hey there. Haven't posted in a while, haven't needed to because I've been pretty happy with my hair. Accepted the fact I have a mature hairline - no thinning, just a more concave, 'V' shaped hairline. That's cool, I'm 22.

I've also posted about my crown, and was told I shouldn't worry, that that's fine also. I just have a parting, light hair, and a red scalp. No thinning or loss. Fine with me.

I've been to doctors, derms, you name it, and they've said my hair is fine.

So anyway, my hair has gotten fairly longer than I usually wear it, and I was speaking to some friends about whether I should just leave it to grow long... not hippy style, just longer than usual. They said I needed it cut, because the sides are thick and my fringe is quite long. Then my friends girlfriend said "get it cut because you're going a bit 'baldy'. Well that's MESSED ME UP GOOD STYLE, and I've started the whole taking pictures of my hair again.

SO! As I said, I feel my hairline is fine:



So that's not the reason my mates girlfriend said it to me.... but she wouldn't have seen my crown, as I'm taller than her.



But that doesn't look 'baldy', does it?

HMMMM. It's bugging me, because after all my time posting on forums and going to docs, derms etc, and it's been established there isn't a problem with my hair, this girl says this to me.

What do you guy's reckon?

Muchas gracias.

No way!

Does this girl know you are a bit sensitive or concerned about your hair?
Because from the pictures I see, no logical person could conclude you have any degree of balding.

Maybe she knows about your fears and is just playing upon them.

You might go bald one day. Or you might not. Stopping some anxiety is partly about accepting that there are uncertainties in life.

But for now: you and your hair are awesome. I've seen friends with similar "red scalp, blond hair" patterns.

You are 22 and have a 100% great head of hair--go out and enjoy life.

Your hair is fine and that girl is either kidding or just plain rude. I remember when I was 22, any guy that even lost a few strands of hair (and I mean just a few) was made fun of for going bald. Now that I am 40, you rarely hear such comments from your peers unless you are severely bald and even then, much much less. One of the advantages of getting older I guess

Anyway, I digress as this is not applicable to you at all. Get off this site and move on with your life.....Obsessing is not healthy. Your hair is killer.

Currently, I see no signs of androgenic alopecia. I would monitor and catch it early (if and when it does occur), but for now, you are just fine!

I find it quite interesting how many women find it acceptable to comment about a guy's hair loss when they in turn would be mortified if someone commented about their weight. It's not acceptable to come out and call someone fat and it's not acceptable to point out someone's hair loss. Some people really have no class.

Jonnykinno,

Your case is unique because your hair is showing no signs of thinning. In fact, most guys, even guys like me who has been through 4 hair transplants would case to have hair as thick and dense as yours.

In my opinion, I would just write it off as an ignorant comment and don't spend any extra time thinking about it. If she does comment again, I suggest pointing out how rude her comments are and that you're certain she wouldn't like it if someone pointed out her flaws. Depending on how comfortable you are talking about it, you could even tell her that she doesn't know what she's talking about since you've been to hair loss specialists and you don't have a hair loss problem.

Best wishes,

Bill
