Anyone with knowledge or experience, advise please!

I'm a 22 year old male, and I went from having a massive amount of hair (one thing that people always noticed about me is that I had A LOT of hair, and you couldn't pull even one out) to nearly being bald in a 1 year time. Is that normal for male pattern baldness or is there something wrong with me that might be fixed? I checked my thyroid and it was ok.

I've been pushing this "pursuing acting" for a long time, and lately just hoping that the hair will grow back. Now, I think I'll give it 6 more months, and if I'll go balder, I will definitely give up on this. I've already have too many disadvantages in the industry, and this one just completely closes the door.

Any tips really appreciated!

When I was 18 (right before college) I started to lose a lot of hair also. Anytime I would take a shower, or run my hands through my hair a bunch would fall out. This lasted maybe 2 months, and I started to freak out because my hair started to look thinner. Eventually it stopped and my hair grew back to how it was before. Except it was less curly. You should see a general doctor just to make sure nothing is wrong though.

I'm a 24 year old male and have the same issue. I had a lot of hair but now it seems to be less. I was also quite sick and stressed for the past six months. My holistic doctor suggested Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. You can get "Nature's Way" brand on Amazon for under $10 and it works really well. Also, as with any issue, diet, exercise, and stress reduction are key.

What treatment did you get? I did consult with a doctor, she said if it's pattern baldness just live with it, that's it.

DHT is one of the main reason behind the sudden hair losses.

I think everyone here is wrong , i think that if you are meant to go bald then that is your destiny. And many bald actor's make it to hollywood in fact some consider bald men more masculine for a role. The moral of my story is Look's should never stop your dream this is your life not anyone else.

I am with Natural-Gift. Best thing you could do would be to embrace it and re-adjust your relationship to how you feel about the hair loss. Having hair or not doesn't effect your ability to personally relate to the text and communicate those thoughts and feelings to another actor and by proxy, the audience.

That being said if you are adamant on trying something, you could try Latisse. I know people who have used it off label with really good results. If that's too expensive you could order the generic bitmaprost .02% solution and get it off the internet.

But I say, bic it and embrace it!!
