Hey guys. I'm in my mid 20s and I would like to get SMP done My hairloss started very aggressively when I was 16-17. I jumped on Finasteride when I was 20 and I responded REALLY well to the treatment, it absolutely halted my regression, reinforced some of the thinning hair and maintained a NW2 look. Unfortunately, I'll be dropping the drug for good (side-effects). It's been around a month and I'm already shedding like a dog, especially at the temples - the worse place for my MPB. My derm said I'll probably be a NW3 or NW4 in March of next year if the shedding keeps going at this pace I'm 100% sure I want to buzz all my hair and go the SMP-route, it's a very elegant solution if you do it while shaving your head still seems like a "choice" Most of the videos I've seen of SMP are of NW4+ guys, though. Is it possible to start the treatment as a lower Norwood? What would be the longterm plan in a case like this? Progressively fill in the affected areas?
Naysayyer posted a topic in SMP Common RoomHello everyone. 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.
