    They don’t care about you. Their sense of self worth is dependant on you going down with them. It’s no different from fat women who get mad when other roasties lose weight

    If you truly don’t care then sure just shave it bro but nobody truly doesn’t truly care and they’re hecking liars if they claim otherwise

      it doesn’t help that doctors are rent seeking or apathetic assholes who gatekeep this shit and the information isn’t readily available. Then you have the "just shave it bro" and broscience gays deliberately countersignaling this shit.

      People just do nothing while wishing they could do something are either ignorant or actively gaslit by others and by then it’s too late.

            I am not so knowledgeable on transplant surgeries but for Turkey it may cost $2000-$5000 depending on how many grafts you get.

            For people who give great results like this it it will be more. In his case from the website pricing now 27k at least. So I would say find someone whos results you like for your grafts # and price range, desired result.

            And he is still on medication so it’s not like doing this saves him from the medication. But looks amazing of course.

            they don’t just plant in the hairs and bang the cause of the baldness is now gone

            I started working out, eating more protein and cutting back on sugars and shit food, seen an improvement in my hair after 2 months.

            started on oral minoxidil over 2 weeks ago, did 1mg a night for 2 weeks then the full 2.5mg a night after that, no side effects or problems

            not starting finasteride yet as my wife and I are going to try for a second baby, once she is preggers, I’ll be starting 1mg fin

            maybe in 10 or 20 years I might for for a transplant, but I’m 40 with a good amount of hair, I just want to keep it on top for a while longer

            any of you going oh side effects, ya nigga there’s side effects to paracetemol

            either start trying this shit, you wont seen effects instantly, try for 6 months if it works for you great, if not then shit that’s life

            Not true. Didn’t read the rest of your list as you are obviously not knowledgable on the subject.

            The best course of action is to avoid taking tranny drugs, get a full-head hair transplant to avoid losing crown hair. At the most, you can take topical fin.

            >die without children
            i heard one theory about baldness is it’s literally to make you unattractive so you will commit to the wife and children you have.
            mpb won’t tend to JUST your shit until your 30s though. if you did things at the right time you should be having kids before 30.

            That theory is interesting. I don’t think there’s a ton of evidence for it but it makes a certain kind of sense. A bald head would advertise that this man is settled, invested in the tribe, and not likely to cause trouble. You have less to worry about from him wrt to cucking you or picking a fight with you. The big hole in this idea is that baldness varies hugely between individuals in the same ethnic group, sometimes in the same family, and some ethnicities like amerindians don’t go bald at all.

            Since baldness is purely cosmetic is it really "bad genes?

            As long as it doesn’t actively impede your survival the genes for it would just be passed on. Given that people had children earlier in their lives than they do in modern times, baldness would be a noticeable factor in mate selection. My armchair theory is it increases surface area available for vitamin d production in old age

            Baldness-causing genes are undergoing positive selection in the West (meaning people with baldness genes are having more babies). Impossible to know exactly why, but plausible hypotheses include increase urgency re: mate selection and settling down; some kind of beneficial effect when the genes are carried by women; or increased resistance to an environmental toxin (increased baseline DHT levels may reduce fertility impacts of endocrine disruptors, for example).

            good hair matters more if you want to heck a lot of women, but it’s pretty much at the bottom of the list if you want to get married and have children. women value your ability and your personality much more when choosing a mate. if you look at old photographs you’ll notice that tons of men went bald, but since it had zero impact on their ability to support a family it didn’t matter.

          >high yield finasteride
          The difference in DHT suppression between 0.25mg/d and 5mg/d is negligible but the difference in side effects is astronomical. Take "high yield finasteride" if you want to stop taking it in 6 months due to extreme mood swings and ED. Otherwise take 0.25mg/d and get 98% of the effectiveness with 5% of the side effects

      i think many of them are middle-aged like myself and operating from the idea that the baldness meds will all permanently break your dick.
      even now i would not take them for that reason but i am quite far along.

      if it won’t break your dick i would definitely encourage people to do what they can to keep their hair.

        It actually seemed to recover a little to the point where you can only see a little scalp at the crown if you’re looking directly down on my head.
        I only came off it for a few months about two years ago when we were trying for a baby because it’s supposedly bad for pregnant women to be exposed to your cum if you’re on it?
        No side effects either. 1mg a day.

      True, that "just shave it" usually comes from non-baldcels like myself; why would we hold folicular restoration knowledge? it’s not like we’re baldies lmfao

    • Anonymous says:

      Truth. I shaved my head to 0mm and I ended up looking like an AIDS patient. I decided that day to pick up my finasteride prescription and save up for a hair transplant. The proceedure ended up costing me 15,000 euros for 3,600 grafts, and it was worth every penny. I’d go so far to say that it saved my life.

      Hair loss not only robs you of your youth and good looks. It robs you of a CHOICE. When you’re bald, you have no choice in the shape of your head. When you’re bald, you’re a slaphead until the day you die.

      Take my advice: Finasteride and Minoxidil have a proven track record with an extremely low risk profile. Consult a doctor and then get a prescription. It could save your looks and your life.

          u got any before after pics of the HT? Also have u used up all ur reserve hair?

          I’m not posting my pictures on this mongolian-weaving board. All I can tell you is that I was a norwood 4 before the proceedure, and a norwood 1 thereafter. My transplant surgeon told me that I have around 2500 grafts in reserve, should I ever wish to do a proceedure in the future. Doing any more grafts would risk my hair having a "moth-eaten" appearance.

        it’s probably too late now. my head’s like op’s pic plus thinning on the sides and lower portion of the back of my head.

        what sides did you get on finasteride

        the worst was sexual (couldn’t get erect, lost feeling, testicle aches) but I also had brainfog and suicidal thoughts. I took it for two months and got off. I’m mostly recovered but still have dick issues. I can still get hard but it takes a while and doesn’t feel at all like it used to. feels kinda hollow if that makes sense.

    Everyone recommends DHT reducing treatments, what about reducing PGD2? The supplements and medicine that reduce it are very low risk to take and research does seem to indicate that it inhibits hair growth.

    • Anonymous says:

      >PGD2
      It looks like that shit does a lot of things that kind of matter to adult human males. DHT serves no purpose after puberty and there’s no downside to destroying it

      • Anonymous says:

        I mean if the supplements that lower PGD2 are so commonly used by people without bad side effects, it can’t be that bad. There’s stuff like aspirin (and other medicines containing salacilic acid), omega 3, quercetin, and resveratrol, there’s people who have been using all of these daily for years without notable side effects. Not to mention you can use some of the options like castor oil topically, even if it isn’t absorbed as easily and would have reduced effects.

        • Anonymous says:

          That seems like a pretty wild claim, aspirin and reseveratrol and castor oil are effective at reversing male pattern balding? At this point I would just classify that and the whole PGD2 thing as snake oil

      rosemary oil does nothing, it’s one of the most irritating memes to have come out of the hair loss community. zero real evidence, all anecdotal. saw palmetto can heck you up, side effects have ranged from accelerated hair loss to inability to feel pleasure (yes, really).

    just gonna do a quick infodump for those who need it considering the amount of confusion and half truths in the thread

    Transplanted hair is from your own donor area (back of the head) and stays forever even if you never take meds at all
    However if you get a transplant to fix your widows peak and thinning youll end up with a massive bald spot later if you dont take meds, which is why most people and doctors reccomend you wait until youre near the end of it like op pic, this means the man in the picture has essentially beaten n6 hairloss without needing medication, which is the ultimate dream of hair transplant hopefuls

    The meds (finasteride/dutasteride, minox alone will not fix your hair in the long run) can have extremely serious side effects, some of which can be permanent. Most dont but many do at least to some extent. There are many people who have been taking it for years and years with minimal side effects but you dont have to look far to find stories from people with severe sides either. Its also possible for it to not work well or stop working after x amount of years.
    Hair transplants are safer than meds considering the only real risk besides a bad result is being allergic to the anesthetic (many use the same kind as is used in other procedures so you can safeguard yourself against this unlikely worst case scenario with research) Which is why, again, the hair transplant from baldness to full hair like op pic is the ultimate grail of hairloss

      As for where and how much when it comes to transplants that depends on a lot of things. Turkey is famous for a reason as the best results there are comparable to the best results from european and american surgeons with 5x or even10x the price level.
      The man in the op pic seems to have gotten his procedure in belgium which more than doubles the price without neccesarily ensuring a better result. I have seen similar results from turkey for around 5-10k.
      When it comes to which surgeon or clinic you have to do your own research and make sure you very carefully look for not just positives but critical opinions aswell, look for the names of reputable surgeons as much the clinic the work at. Preferably book several free consultations to see if the surgeons are in agreement about your potential and to weed out less serious surgeons willing to take on anyone regardless of potential. And make sure you always remember that not everyone is guaranteed a good result, some people dont even have the donor area for it.

          There are two good Turkish surgeons, Pekiner and Keser. 99% of Turkish clinics are hair mills where techs do the operation and the actual surgeon only draws the hairline if that which is why they are so cheap compared to European clinics. You’ll get a poor yield, an unnatural hairline, and a destroyed donor. You get what you pay for.

        perhaps low dose topical dutasteride but theres conflicting anecdotes on this and some have even experienced worsening loss due to the spike of testosterone from elimination of dht

        the molecular weight of dutasteride is higher and theorized might not go systemic, unlike topical finasteride. i avoided it because it inhibits all 5AR types while finasteride doesn’t mess with all of them

        I use personally low dose topical finasteride and nothing else besides microneedling to stimulant growth back

        however i got some side effects on high dose topical finasteride so if it doesn’t work again I will try the topical dutasteride, if that fails then there’s other anti androgens in FDA pipeline and minoxidil to fake it for a few years i guess

        I can’t ever imagine a hair transplant would give that nice of a result from full baldness, and I’m diffuse thinning so its not a great option for HT

          When it comes to which surgeon or clinic you have to do your own research and make sure you very carefully look for not just positives but critical opinions aswell, look for the names of reputable surgeons as much the clinic the work at. Preferably book several free consultations to see if the surgeons are in agreement about your potential and to weed out less serious surgeons willing to take on anyone regardless of potential. And make sure you always remember that not everyone is guaranteed a good result, some people dont even have the donor area for it.

          Dont let other people tell you what you can be happy with.
          Some people are lucky enough to look great bald, and some look just fine.
          But some people look way worse and pretty much everyone will look older.
          Dont let doomers like[…] tell you that you cant be happy without taking hormones that could change and damage your body forever, but at the same time you might not be able to come to terms with being bald although you should keep in mind that most people do.

          Do your own research, weigh the pros and cons and try not to worry too much about a receding hairline, most people truly dont care until youre actually bald, at which point less people than you think will care. Some will , but how important that is to you is ultimately something only you yourself can know.

    since this seems like the de facto baldgen, how far can my hairline theoretically grow back with fin/min/whatever? i’ve had a norwood 2 since i was like 16 and in the past year it’s moved back which is why i’m starting drugs. i’m 20 now, is it possible to grow any of that part that’s been recessed for a long time back? even in a best-case scenario

      Don’t expect a miracle but if you have thinning at the front you can probably halt it with fin and potentially get a little bit of density in the thinned areas with min. But it will take a while and initially it will make things worse when you do the min shed cycle.

        thanks, i’m probably not gonna do min if there isn’t some advantage i get from being young. obviously i’d love for it to be better but my hairline right now is fine and i’d mostly just like for it to be thicker in the spots where there is hair

    Realistically, how high is my chance of going bald before 30? My hair is my only decent feature and without it I am nothing, I would look terrible bald.

    My dad has a full head of hair, my maternal grandfather started losing his hair around my age and is now very much bald. I’m 18 almost 19 and I’ve been a Norwood ~1-1.5 since I was 16 or at least that’s where I started checking regularly and it hasn’t moved since. Always had a really high forehead, hairline right now looks pretty much like my dads + same hairtype, color etc. We have overall pretty similar hair. My dads half spaniard half native american while my maternal grandpas ethnicity is kind of unknown. My grandma on the other hand was german and her brother has a full head of hair to this day.
    If I actually go bald there is treatment, I know but I’m unbelievably scared of catching it too late or gaslighting myself into thinking I’m not actually receding until it gets pretty much unsalvageable.

    Going bald is not an option.

      I first took fin at 20 bc my straight hairline was starting to recede a tiny bit at the corners. Im 30 now and I have all my hair. My hairline budged a bit bc Id travel for 6 months at a time thru my 20s and not take fin for like year long stretches. Idk I stopped overthinking about it so much once fin was in the picture. Its actually crazy I was literally you worrying about it and asking the internet what I should do, then I blinked and Im 30. Anyways if you notice real hairline recession then take fin to halt it. I only got watery semen as a side effect but then it went away. However be wary of side effects bc you never know

      My best advice to you is to take a picture of your hairline every month. I went from normal hairline to Norwood 3 in a single year. Did a buzzcut, took pictures and started taking pics every month while trying various non-chemical treatments (hair massages, rosemary oil, biotin, etc.) to see if there’s any progress. I didn’t feel like there was any, in fact after 2 years I was going through a depression thinking I lost even more hair, but then I checked the pictures and realized my hairline stayed the same and just froze at N3. Now I’m saving up money for a transplant.
      So for your sanity take pics of your hairline regularly and just check them when you’re feeling paranoid. Make sure it’s in similar lighting, conditions, always at the same interval after your shower since it might look thinner when it’s wet or thicker (fluffier) if you blowdried it after shampoo, etc.

    i’ve had a widow’s peak since i was like 23 and it’s gotten worse over time, i’m now 31 and last april when i noticed i was getting bald spots on the top of my head i went to see a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss. dude gave me a recipe, i went to a pharmacy and they made this lotion that i eyedrop 2 ml of on my scalp every night before bed. it’s like 2% minoxidil and 0.25 % finasteride plus a bunch of other shit. doctor said there’s no reason to take oral medication and put my whole body thru a potential slew of side effects when i can use the topical lotion and get the same results in the long run. only difference is with the topical lotion it theoretically takes longer to see improvements. for now the top of my head seems to have fully recovered from the initial shed of hair and i can also see quite a lot of teeny tiny invisible baby hair that are popping up on my temples. none of the classic side effects, no mood swings, no man boobs, no low sex drive (i feel hornier than before if anything, gf noticed it as well). only inconvience is i’ve developed a very mild folliculitis that i’m treating with a spray, but it’s minor. also during the summer i was sweating a lot at night and given that i apply the lotion before bed, even if i waited a bit for it to dry up before actually going to sleep, a sweat and lotion mix would occasionally smear on my pillow and then back onto my forehead, which caused a couple bumps and pimples to appear here and there, nothing huge. doctors also prescribed me a serenoa repens based shampoo and a dermatitis prevention shampoo to alternate during the week as well as a series of supplements (a collagen one, one to protect the hair from direct sunlight during the summer and one to block seasonal loss of hair that i just began taking)

      cont

      all in all i feel like it’s been working slowly but steadily, it takes 2 minutes to put on the lotion, it’s not greasy, it doesn’t smell it’s not sticky and i spend on average 50 € a month so it’s sustainable.
      two main takeaways for me so far:

      1) after just one week my hair was already looking better and healtier than ever. so even if you don’t feel like beginning a full on therapy even just taking care of it with basic products can do wonders for your confidence

      2) ever since i began the terapy i feel like i have suddenly come to terms with the fact that there’s a 99% chance i’ll be completely bald one day. i’ve been struggling with depression for 10 years now, and when i began making progress with it the thought that i had wasted my best years came to me, and the fact that i was losing hair meant that my youth was now gone for good and i could never get it back. this worsened my depression. taking action in regards to my hair loss allowed me to focus more on feeling better in general and appreciate the progress i’ve made in my life. if i give up a year from now it’s fine, if i don’t give up and still don’t get any hair back it’s fine cause i tried doing something about it. you can’t control everything in the end. so yeah if you’re struggling and you feel like you can’t cope with going bald give it a try

    You would think with Genetic-Editing technology the balding issue would have been solved completely but nope, current year and all the solutions are middling at best

    4 months in to my transpant and the difference is already night and day. I am getting some bumps turning into scabs on the recipient area though. Anyone have experiece with this? I tried googling but google is stupid and just sees scabs + hair transplant and only shows me stuff about scabs in the first month after the surgery.

    • Anonymous says:

      I’m about to be on month 6 post transplant. Do you get a lot of these bumps/scabs? I don’t think I’ve experienced any of those, except a few small little crusts. It’s probably nothing, but you should call your clinic to be safe.

    took 1mg fin for the first time today and immediately got huge brain fog all day, dick also isn’t getting hard but that could just be because i’m thinking about it so that’s not my main issue. should i lower dose or just cut my losses? again this is literally day 1

    I’m bald and would probably invest in transplants, min and fin if I was unable to get laid. Fortunately, my lack of hair has never prevented me from having sex, so I just buzz it with a #2 clipper guard and rarely even think about it.

    i’m 8 months into taking oral minoxidil, it regrew my crown area after a pretty horrible shed and overall it helped me out, i’ve started another pretty awful shed in the last couple weeks so i’m not sure where this will leave me. i didn’t want to take fin but honestly at this point i might just consider taking 1mg 3 times a week

    looking into hair loss hecking sucks, its literally just cosmetic and i shouldn’t care about it that much but it’s hard not to care especially when you’ve just hit 21 and have a mountain of stress that probably caused it earlier than it should of been. it sucks having to play long waiting games to see results but i guess thats the nature into this stuff. i think if fin gives me side effects ill give it up on using that and just continue with oral minoxidil until it looks like shit, and then i’ll embrace a bald head with mustache cus why not

    For those of you that know about hair transplants.

    If you have something like pic related. A diffuse hair loss only in the crown. Will it be possible to have a hair transplant in that area without afecting the hairs that still exist in that area?

    Or if you place hair follicles next to places where there are still hair follicles, will they be lost too (the old ones or the new ones)? I also ask this because there is a shedding phase too and this could be problematic if the new follicles are next to the old ones.

    How do hair surgeons approach this situation?
