    I am 22, and have been having a hairfall problem for sometime [about a year or two I guess ] but I never took it seriously until a few months ago I've started noticing that there the 're-growth' has slowed down and my forehead has started to look a hell lot bigger .... :frown1:

    The doc gave me minoxidil, but it's really not stopping the hairfall ... I've been using for about six months

    I was thinking about some 'herbal-remedies', does anyone have any idea what to do about it .... :confused:

    I know what to do about it, you either wait for scientists to come up with a solution to balding (which will come in about 5-10 years as they say),

    or

    just accept it and stop worrying about it. Balding is I would say 100% genetic and there's next to nothing you can do about it if your genes say so. (except for wigs and stuff like that of course)

    No one is bald in my family, not my father ... no one on my father's side, no one on my mother's side .... I don't think it's hereditary ...

    If we're talking about MPB, then it most certainly is.

    Believe me there isn't anything you can do to stop male pattern baldness.It effects different people in different ways.I started to lose mine at a similar age and it doesn't bother me one iota.
    It's not an illness or disease so don't look at it as such,just remain confident and people will find your thinning hair irrelevant.You could have a lot worse things happen to you in life,.....BELIEVE ME!!!

    Yep. Just gotta accept it. It sucks. It's really strong on both sides of my family, so my mom actually gave me permission as a teenager to grow my hair as long as I want, just keep it clean and styled, etc. Now, I'm 35 and have a singificant bald spot.....

    FWIW, it is hereditary/genetic. From what is understood about it, it comes from the mother's side of the family. So, if your maternal grandfather is bald, chances are, you will be bald.

    Sorry to hear it bud, altho - as people have said buzz it off with clippers and it should look cool.
    Diff problem here - started greying at 21.

    This. Not always easy to accept since there's not much choice in the matter - but best solution, prolly.

    Not always - my bro started balding early and it's from my Dad's side of the family.

    Unlike many things, the size you get is the one advertised! It's a good thing!

    some hair loss can be from stress. Massage your head before you sleep. Also, try shaving your head entirely and letting it grow back in its own pattern. Make friends with your head.
