My Hair Loss StoryI first started notice that I was losing hair in the temple region when I was about 19. Male pattern baldness runs in my family on both sides (thought I do have relatives with full heads of hair), and it looked like I was going down that path. In the front my hairline has stayed put, but the top of my head began thinning as well, while the temple region continued to go further back. At age 21 I started propecia and that has pretty much put an end to my hairloss. I began using toppik a couple years back and that really helped, but I have become so used to it that I cannot leave the house without toppik in my head. Recently I have also use pro-thik and that has worked wonders, as you cannot even detect that I am thinning other than the temple area.
How has my hair loss affected me?
I am not comfortable leaving my house without toppik/prothik in my hair.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
