Hey guys so long story short I was unfortunate enough to lose most of my hair at the age of 12. High school was torture for me. When I graduated I found out about hair fibers like xfusion and toppik and they changed my life. Its sad and amazing how much differently you get treated when your not bald at 18. Anyways I'm 28 now and married and I live with this huge secret. I keep my xfusion in 24/7 my wife doesnt even know my issue and it kills me. I know she loves me regardless but its embarrassing. I wash it out usually twice a week. My question is is this dangerous? I'm having breathing trouble through my nose at night and its causing horrible snoring and just plain scary. Am I over thinking it or could I be damaging my lungs breathing the fibers in? Its the worst thing in the world living with this secret and constantly making sure I have scalp coverage I wish I could just live normal I'm ready to shave my head. I can't afford transplants and just don't know any other options. Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated thanks so much guys.

Michael,

 

A few things:

 

1) Did you ever see a hair loss specialist and undergo an evaluation? Androgenic alopecia - male pattern hair loss - is not common at 12. In fact, it would be very unlikely. There are a number of other types of alopecia, however, than could affect children in this age bracket. You could suffer from one of these, and treatment may be available.

 

2) If you're experiencing breathing issues, I highly recommend seeing a physician. This could be caused by a number of things, and I think a trained professional should be the one to figure it out.

 

Good luck!

I am guessing your wife knows and she is too sweet to say anything. Women know lots of stuff. I agree that you need to go see a doc. No one on this site can help through a keyboard. Seeing a doc in person is what is needed for your concerns.

 

Also, if you are 28 and you look good with a shaved head, why not shave? If you lost most hair at 12, that sounds pretty doubtful that you could be a HT candidate 16 years later.

You can join the crowd now with your thinning hair. Like hadenough2014 said above your wife probably knows and doesn't care. I think one breathes in much more irritant in the air than Toppik I'm sure. I used it and don't think much will come free from your hair. You can try some snoring remedies. I used to and don't have a problem now with some pitch on the bed. Good luck on everything. You can always bounce stuff off this forum. By the way Michael Anthony.... You are a awesome bassist in Van Halen and Chickonfoot. :D
