Where am I on NW Scale?

Recommended Posts

These pictures were taken in August. Hair was slicked back due to it being a special occasion. I'm a 22 y/o male. Am I balding? Where am I on the NW scale?

The next set of pix were taken in November. Hair is again slicked back

Barely a Norwood 2.

 

Unless you have a family history of baldness I would not be worried. If you are concerned then maybe research using Propecia as a preventative measure and just enjoy life

At times I worry about if I'm worrying for nothing, because at times it seems like my hairline hasn't much changed. This is my hairline at roughly ages 15 turning 16 to age 17

You hair looks good but I see the see-through aspects of your hair, in the corners above your temples, mostly in the photo of your left-hand side. It may be the lighting, but in your earlier photos, that area appears more thick and not see through. If you are worried, seek out a professional hair doctor and get his opinion.

Could hair gel and slicking your hair back make your hair appear thinner than it is? I ask because here are two non-gelled pix from last year:

It's certainly possible, but different angles and lightning and the way your hair lies in pics show no see through could also explain it.

 

You're obviously worried about something that's changed in your hair. There must be a reason for your concern, and usually there is. Are you better off hair-wise than 99% of people out there with hair issues? Yes. But hair loss has to start somewhere and some people catch it early, and some people are lulled into ignoring it.

Hello LookingToLearn,

 

We should all have an NW scale like you. :) You have a perfectly normal and great looking head of hair. Come On Man! I say that tongue and cheek, stop worring and go out and party looking great. All the Best, Michael
