im 19 and ive always had a bit of a shitty hairline but now i think its actually starting to get worse.
What are the most effective remedies to hair loss?
It really is confidence because what is more confident than a guy losing his hair at 19 displaying genuine confidence.
If you want to maintain some of you hair, look into Finasteride and Minoxidil. If you are scared of taking Fin, for any reason, then do not take it.
Also, most girls don't mind. It's a very effeminate masculine quality to style your hair anyway.
Someone once told me that if you fear losing your hair to a large extent you also fear death to the same.
this is good advice. Other good advice is, if you have obviously thinning hair, just shave it bald. Because when you shave it bald, you're making a choice, you're owning your head and telling it what to do. When you're balding the choice is being done for you and you just come off as a man who is not in control of himself. if your head says "I'll just take out a few hairs" you have to say "FUCK YOU IT'S ALL GOING"
investigate minoxidil and propecia and try them out if possible
the effects of propecia are supposedly affect only a relatively small part of the population and even if they affect you then the chance of them going away if you quit it are extremely high
don't buy into any 'remedies', chances are they won't work
i suggest lose a little weight t slim down your face then shave it all off and keep it that way, or get really buff
if you dress well with a buzzed head, receding or not, you can still look good
pic related is kind of what im talking about
Mine is pretty bad. I'm too skinny to shave it off though, it'd make me look terminally ill.
Right now my hair is pretty long so that covers it well but I'm always wearing hats if its slightly windy out. I might just get it cut short, there's haircuts you can get that do a good job of masking them but short hair really ages me so I dunno
Get on the finasteride train and enjoy arguing with yourself everyday if the side effects are worth it.
>Less morning boners.
>When I used to take 0.5mg every two fucking days(normal dose is 1mg/day) my dick would look dead, pale and rotten.
>Now I take even less, I know I shouldn't but I'm 20 and I've still got a lot to do before I go bald.
On the bright side, I'm at a dose that (according to studies) does like 80% of the 1mg/day effect, but is way less harmful for your libido and dick. Now I feel kind of normal, but I still hate this fucking drug. I just don't want to mest with my hormones, but I want to keep my hair so bad I'll still endure it. Yes I'm stupid.
Taking that those statistics are true and I'm the minority, if I were you I'd try it, half dose or something. If you don't notice side effects, you're good and finas might be a perfect option for you. If you do, stop, or do as I did and let your insecurities be stronger than your survival instinct.
What dose are you on exactly?
Man, I want to try fin or duta, but I'm almost sure I will get side effects because of my fucked up hormones.
As long as the sides aren't permanent, it's worth a try.
I'm balding pretty bad in the front now and am hesitant to just shave it off again because of having a big damn beard this time. I need to at least trim this shit down, any suggestions is to how I should attempt to style it?
I think my head is much too round for teashades. Though I do like them a ton. I'm thinking of trimming the sides down and cutting off an inch or so to get all of the split ends in my beard.
Finasteride, or some other shit. Can reverse hairloss in most men if you catch it early enough, and hold it for a long while. Can cause ED, and loss of wanting sex/mastrubation. Can be permanent?
You can get it perscribed, or order it from india. Same with Dutasteride, but do your research so youy don't piss blood.
Alternatively, you could shave off your hair completely. You might look like Picard, or just some bald guy, I wouldn 't know.
>Atttracitve 10/10 perfect male, health, muscle compostiion, and looks
>Attractive 10/10 perfect female, same as above
>Baby is born
>Baby gets to 20 and starts balding
>Balding genes were from the mother's side of the family
There's more variations, but come on man. Soon there will be gene therapy, all bad genes will be erased. Defformities will be a thing only the upper class has, for some extra personality. Lower class will be wiped out, upper class will fight. After generations we'll be back here again with little changing.
>it's actually not a myth
Yes, it is a myth.
>the biggest genetic factor that contributes to mpb is on the x chromosome
That doesn't make it a trait inherited exclusively from the mother's side of the family.
this is wrong. since being on fin im not only more horny all the time, but im also getting more defined/ripped because of the extra free testosterone created by blocking DHT synthesis. the only side effect ive noticed is my cum is more watery and less thick
>this is wrong.
It's not. Your anecdotal evidence doesn't change anything.
> but im also getting more defined/ripped because of the extra free testosterone created by blocking DHT synthesis
No extra free testosterone is created by blocking DHT.
>the only side effect ive noticed is my cum is more watery and less thick
That's one of the side effects. Enjoy shitty sperm.
IT's not wrong, it's a documented side effect, motherfucker I researched it. Never heard about the test helping lifting though, you got a source on that?
If I am imagining my hairloss, since I never have my hair this short, then I might still take it to get easier gains till my perscription runs dry.
The other side effect is that loads can be more watery, and sometimes yellow. This might be permanant as well, but I mean, if you're after aesthetics, and not women, it's alright.
It is, if you're a norwood scale of 3, you will most likely get all of your hair back. The more severe the less desireable the result.
There are places that use body hair to suplement the transfer, and it looks....odd, but not bad when mixed with other hair.
The plan is to either move into cocktail injections, which seems likely, as well as hair cloning. Because once you can get more donor hair, full restoration becomes instantly possible.
Plenty of folks are getting close to cracking it, and a few have made donor hairs grow on areas of mice that they normally shouldn't. They need funding though. I'm skeptical though, even though a cure seems close, big pharma is making a killing off of balding people, I doubt they'd want a cure mucking that up. So either the trend continues, or the progenitors of the bandaid cures die and we get the real thing.
Of course, if the indians crack it, we might be able to get it ourselves. But I doubt any place that has capitalism like us will want to make a cure, even though it affects nearly every man.
there is an expensive surgery where they take hair folacles from the sides of your head that still grow and implant them one by one on the top of your head. the hair is alive, and grows. seems cool but ridiculously expensive.
That's any hair transplant proccdure, called FUE or FUT. I believe FUE is better, since I think it's the one that doesn't scar so if it doesn't look good right away, or you're sick of it, you can shave it off and not have a scarred up head.
I've had a hair transplant.
The left is around 89 follicular units/cm (natural hair) and the right is about 45/cm (transplants).
You definitely want to go around 60FU/cm to have normal looking hair
i've seen you on here before, what is your routine?
e.g. do you take propecia or brand name? what dose? i know you also take zinc to offset any sides, can you clarify what exactly? also anything else you want to tell?
Don't mess with finasteride or dutasteride (latter being even a less clinically studied drug). It's a prostate cancer drug since it's blocking dihydrotestosterone, and even if in male pattern baldness it doesn't even slow or reverse much (if it even reverses without additions of estrogen?)
If it even does, you have to maintain your dose to maintain your hair, which among the possible sexual side effects isn't worth it, there are better options out there
Got some before and afters? Where were you on the norwod scale? Can you style your hair without it looking incredibly thin? How much did it run you, and where?
Such as? Seems like finasteride is the only thing that prevents it that ISN'T snake oil, even if the side effects suck. Like those laser combs, and rogaine which doesn't even look like it ever works. I've also heard it raises free T, which can help build muscle, if true.
Finasteride stops testosterone from being converted into dihydrotestosterone, which literally does mean yes there is more testosterone available that hasn't been converted, but I don't think that would increase over all bio available testosterone since the sex hormone binding globulin levels aren't changing
