Scalp thinning


Recommended Posts



Welcome to our forum community.


I agree that pictures of the spot you are referring to would help. But do know that male pattern baldness can start by a thinning hair patch/spot in the crown/vertex area of the scalp.


It's also a myth that genetic hair loss is tied only to your mother's father. Genetic baldness can be acquired from either side of the family.


If you'd like to post photos of the thinning area, we'll be glad to take a look and give you a better assessment. Alternatively, you may want to consult a dermatologist.


Best wishes,

Looks a bit like early stage MPB at the crown. But it could just be the concentrated whiteness of your scalp in the flash. I'd recommend sending your photos to a hair doc that does free consultations online. If they concur it is MPB then you might want to try using finasteride and minoxidil for 6 months + (they can both be purchased fairly cheaply online) and then you can see if the area thickens up. Bear in mind that if it does thicken up you will then have to keep using them both to maintain the thickness.
