I’m 27 years old and I always had thin hair. At 16, people were already mentioning my hair was very thin and it looked like I was going to be bald soon. As you might imagine, this is not very reassuring at such age, and since early my hair has been a big concern to me.
Since I played guitar in a rock band during my high school phase, I started using my hair long, which helped concealing the hair loss.
At 18 I started taking propecia, and I have been on 1,25mg/day since then. In the beginning my hair was thin, and the thinning has always slowly progressed. Propecia didn’t make me regrow any hair, but it probably slowed down the loss. In my family, my uncle had premature MPB, as well as a 1st degree cousin.
As to my balding pattern, I actually find it is quite unusual. Even though it’s thinner, I still have my full hair line, and temple points, but my hair is incredibly thin everywhere, specially on top and sides. You can easily see a lot of my scalp on my sides if I’m not using concealers. It looks like female pattern baldness, and I don’t know if this is common in men, but I think not.
What do you think? Is it good old MPB or anything else? Diffuse unpatterned alopecia?
