Just as the title says, I am turning 22 in the summer and I was just wondering what my options are for correcting a hairline. I feel like the middle part of my hairline is too high up in comparison to the rest of my hairline (on the left and right edges).
I'd consider surgery depending on the costs and how minimal the scarring is but I have no idea what procedures would be recommended for just a very small part in the hairline to be restored. I am looking for mostly the middle part to be restored and lowered somewhat to be close to even with the rest of my hairline (when i was younger I got a head injury and got stitches in the middle part of my hairline which I think has caused the hair to stop growing).
Let me know if I can provide any other information, help would be gladly appreciated thank you very much!
I found this site when researching transplant, and it's clear that I am way too chicken (and stingy) to do that at this point.
Someone at a salon once recommended Nioxin shampoo, so I bought a huge jug and used it mostly consistently until it was gone with no discernible result.
I know myself well enough to limit what I do to a once-a-day shampoo, because that is what I am most likely to do consistently.
So, forum members, what is your recommendation for a once-a-day shampoo? While I am new here, I am not new to forums. I will read up on other posts but I would like to hear the latest from you guys that use it now. What product should I try, and why?
This is my first time posting here. I'm 32 years old. I first started noticing my hair thinning about 10 years ago, but it looked fine after styling it, and I didn't trust any of the ads I saw on TV for treatments. In the past year I seem to be losing my hair much more rapidly (or maybe the loss was just more noticeable at my current level), and it's now starting to bother me to the point where I feel I have to either treat it or shave it this year. My brother is 11 years older than me and completely bald on top, so I can't help but think that might be the path I might also be heading down (although I think he was much also *much* further along that me when he was 32).
I've learned a *lot* from reading some posts on this forum recently, and have grown to be less skeptical about the treatments and doctors that are out there, but I'm still not sure what will be right for me. So I thought this would be a great place to ask for advice.
A couple of questions that are on my mind :
1) Can you tell what Norwood level I am, or heading toward, from the photos?
2) Can Propecia be effective on someone with my level of hair loss? My doctor recommended Propecia, but I feel I've lost enough in the front (especially at the temples) that I might need a transplant.
3) If I do decide to get a transplant, would I be able to keep a short and athletic haircut afterwards? After working out is one of the times when my hair lost most bothers me right now.
4) About how many transplant procedures will I need in the long term? Is there a limit to how many procedures you can handle based on how much donor hair you have? I'm worried if I get a transplant now, and continue losing hair, that the result would end up looking worse in the long run.
I *very* much appreciate any advice you might have for me. I think the information will help me to find the right treatment much more quickly, and to have more productive conversations with my doctor. Also let me know if there is any more information or photos I can provide that would be helpful.
