I seem to notice more hair coming out. However, I just grew it out a little after about 8 years of having it very short, and I'm wondering if I'm just noticing it because the hairs are bigger. And I've been wearing a hat lately more often than I have in a while. But I dunno-I might be imagining it, but I think I'm starting to look a little thinner up front.

So, those who's hair has gone before mine-when did you first notice it? Hair coming out in the shower? Clumps? Couple at a time? How does it happen? What age did it start going?

I keep thinking mine is going, but after looking at pictures from several years ago I think it's just my imagination.

My hairline stopped receding, but then the center surrendered.

Unfortunately, all the hair that USED to grow on my head now seems determined to grow out of my nose, my ears, and across my back.

I've become a Clipper Comando trying to stay ahead of it all....

Don't use that Rogain shit, it made my hair fall out faster when I was using it

My hair is 'wavy'.... its waving "BYE BYE"

Mine has been on it's way out since I was about 21. When it's gone, it's gone!

Maybe by then they can graft some from my back???

That wish is SOOOO going to bite you one the ass one day!

I've started cropping my hair really short, because that way I hardly notice the gradual transition into baldness

Well at 22 if I let it get over 1/2th inch it starts itching, plus it bogs down my clippers when I cut it.

Started noticing thinning in my mid-20's. Now in my early 40s and its pretty well receeded. Think Garth Brooks and you'll get the idea. I knew what i was in for since childhood when I watched my dad go through the same process. Never had clumps fall out or anything.

If I get that bad... Im gonna go Bruce Willis Style... shave it!

That is supposed to be normal, a sign that it is working and new hairs are growing in and pushing out the old ones. However, Rogain is not really intended to work on receding hairline, just the "bald spot."

---------------------

METT-T, you will usually notice it up front first (in the temple area). I first noticed it when I was 18 . I never noticed the hair "coming off" faster, just the thinning/receding hairline. Also, I'm not sure it this is real or just in my head, but the thinning areas seem to itch more.

Mine's finished receding.

Link Posted: 10/18/2004 12:09:10 AM EDT
Mine started at age 20. Now, three years later, it's becoming worse. I only notice hair on my pillow or near my hair brush on the sink.

mine isn't really receading, but it's getting thin pretty fast. i'm 26 right now. i keep it cut really short so it doesn't look too bad. right now i don't really care too much. i've known it was going to happen since my father and uncle are both chrome-domed.

I'm afraid I'm also a member of the thinning club. Not only is the hairline receding, but there's a big old spot forming on top. Of course every single guy on my mom's side of the family has male pattern baldness, so I knew I was screwed a long time ago. But hey, I'm not sweating it. I know I'm not alone. LOL.

Receding ? Hell, try FREEFALLING

Nah, so far my hair is doing fairly well.

27 with a hairline that is backing up. Starting to get strands of gray as well. Getting old sucks.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 5:05:55 AM EDT
can't really see mine going back, but I have to unclog the shower drain every day from hair coming out.
Link Posted: 10/18/2004 5:21:27 AM EDT
Full head of hair. Just starting to get a touch of gray. And hit 51 in Aug...
