I'm 20 y/o and two months ago something triggered my hair to start rapidly diffuse thinning all across the top. I was banking on SMP being my cure for baldness, but after buzzing down with a zero guard I don't suit it at all.
My hair is too light so under bright light I'll just look straight bald, my skin is too pale and my skull sticks out noticeably at the back.
I just don't have the 'look' to pull this off. I don't want to go into work tomorrow because of how self conscious I currently feel with my hair like this.
I'm really considering starting finasteride and minoxidil now. The side effects of both scare me but they seem like my only option.
Figured I'd post here before committing to the above medications. Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations in general that apply to my situation?
Thanks in advance.
