New to Hairloss Need Help

Recommended Posts

Hi my name is mark, I have been noticing my hair starting to thin in a M shape where my hairine is. I've attached pictures for you guys to see. My hair is very dry and it feel very thin.



Can you suggest something for me to use to mke my hair not dry and thin?

And also what would you suggest to start growing hair on my hairline?

Hi Mark,


Have you consulted with a trusted hair loss physician? If not, I think this is a good place to start. The doctor will be able to examine your scalp, determine what is causing the hair loss (though it does sound like androgenic alopecia or male pattern hair loss), and recommend treatments.


In general, minoxidil (Rogaine) and finasteride (Propecia) are the two drugs proven safe and effective for hair loss by the US FDA. However, these drugs - in a lot of cases- work most effectively in the vertex (crown) and midscalp. However, you can try them for hairline loss as well. If you're a good candidate and stabilize your hair loss, surgical hair restoration for your hairline may be a viable option as well.


Hope this helps!

Consider meeting with a good dermatologist for recommendations for treating the dryness and quality of your hair. Even a good hair salon can show you some good moisturizers for your hair.


As far as the thinning in the frontal zone, there really is not much out there to treat this effectively. Both finasteride and minoxidil are not typically effective for frontal zone thinning.


In addition you will want to put some time in online research so that you have a better understanding of all of the options available. You want to fully understand the risks and benefits.
