I made it to somewhere between 2-3, and then decided fuck it I'm just shaving my head from now on.



Around the Network

I am 39 and I'm still at a 1. My father still has most of his hair. He is 68 and is maybe a 2.



Between 2-3, but my hairstyle hides it well.



They say your hairline comes from your grandfather on your mothers-side. No idea if that's true but my father started going bald in his mid-20's while my grandfather never went bald at all, and neither me or my brother have showed signs of losing any hair.

So I'm still a 1.

I am mid 30s. Have reached stage 4. Consistent Rogaine treatment has helped me get back to 3. But the product has to be used at least 7 months with out fail. Quitting the product for more than 3 months gets me back to stage 4. Balding sucks, but one must keep fighting the good fight!

I'm at stage 4 for years now. My hair is still pretty long but very sparse right on top. With a baseball cap on you would never know. I can't see it myself so my mental presentation of myself is still unaffected, until I see a picture of myself with my back turned to the camera. 45 now.



Still at stage 1 at 39 years old and no sign of grey hair yet apart from the odd one from time to time. I'm lucky I take after my mother's side, my father is completely bald and his brothers were starting to have grey hair at 30.



Signature goes here!

Have you tried Finasteride to keep the existing hair? An FUE transplant could give you long term hair back to NW3 and you could stop the daily Rogaine application.

As an Avid Men's Health Mag reader lol. I read an article about Finasteride's side effects. A search online confirmed some of the reports. Not everyone gets the side effects, but there are some horror stories.  So I have pretty much battled baldness with Rogaine. I want a transplant but they are extremely pricey, so maybe in the future if I can save a few grand.



At age 38 and around a level 2. Have been here for about a decade, so I'm assuming my hairline has receded about as far as it wants to. That being said, I clip my own hair with no guard. If I started losing more hair, it wouldn't really affect me too much.
