    Hair Loss From Stress/Depression? (PICS)

    Other guys in my family really have no bad hair loss problems- and I'm only 20 years old. I just noticed that my hairline has receded in the corners BADLY sometime in the past two years. I'm not exactly sure when it started because I've had long hair. The only thing I can think of as a cause is stress. I've been badly stressed out and depressed for probably five years. This really is a wake-up call: I'm losing my fucking hair from being stressed out at 20? I know. It's fucking pathetic. But I think it's the reason. I'm not seeking advice for mental problems but just the hair aspect. I'm going to see the doctor but I'm trying to learn as much as possible about regrowing hair.

    I parted my hair on the side so you can see how much is missing. It's the same on both sides. That bald area jutting towards my crown used to be more filled in with hair. There's so many types of treatments, products, and gimmicks out there. What do you think is the best in this case? I want to regrow all my hair in that bald area.

    Thanks

    See a doctor, but it looks like male pattern baldness. Some dudes start losing their hair younger than 20, so things could be worse. Stress-driven hair loss doesn't cause a receding hairline, you just lose hairs throughout the scalp (and they grow back when the stress is relieved).

    I say you start buzzing it, hit the gym and bulk up. Think Vin Diesel or Bruce Willis. They've both been bald for ages, they just said "screw toupees, combovers and Rogaine" and buzzed it.

    Benefits of a buzz-cut:
    1) You can cut your own hair at home, in minutes, saving time and $.
    2) You won't need shampoo, conditioner, combs, gels, hair ties any longer.
    3) No more hat head.
    4) Your bath towels will stay fresh longer.

    Women have two types of toys: teddy bears and vibrators. Teddy bears are for when they are emotional and want to watch romcoms, and vibrators for when they want to get off. What toy are you?

    I guess that's one philosophy but personally I would hate to have a completely bald head. I'd like to have my hair even longer than it is. I don't mind maintaining it. How can I regrow hair in the area where it has receded and prevent further hairline recession? Do I need a hair transplant, or just some special shampoos? Are you sure that stress can't cause a receding hair-line?

    +1.

    IIRC, one of the quotes from "The Game" was that women are not repulsed by a bald man, but the insecurities that going bald brings up in a man.

    Take Neil Strauss as your role model, go bald and be proud of it. Otherwise you'll be spending a lot of your time and money fighting for something that will be taken from you with time anyway. Accept it and deal with it. "What you can't fix, you feature." All the best, however you choose.

    I'm not about to go bald. MPB almost always includes balding that starts right at the crown. My hairline has receded. So thanks, but I'm not looking for "go bald" advocates. Just want to know the best way to regrow some hairs where mine receded..

    I'd go see a dermatologist about this and your options. Things like Rogaine, etc. only help with the crown, not temple recession.
    "You are literally too stupid to insult" "Thank you".

    Oh, by the way, did I mention I'm awesome?

    I am writing my life to laugh at myself. And I am succeeding.

    Just get a short cut and style the hair at the front up a bit. I have something similar and girls haven't complained to me about it so much yet. They won't like it if you try to keep it long when your losing it.

    Get a "2" on the sides(buzzed level), shorten it on the top and style it a bit. I got pics of myself if you wanna see it to see what I mean.

    Girls love short hair anyway

    The main cause of hair lose is lack of blood supply to the hair follicle. We have to use multi modality treatment. There are two main hair restoration stores Hair club and Bosley. Some of the technique they use include

    1) Daily shampoo and conditioner to keep hair healthy. If you have dandruff try a ketoconazole or selenium shampoo to keep off dandruff. $ 20 /mnth
    2) Bosley use some form of hair stimulant for local application. Expensive -Bosley 6 month supply $800(with laser brush)
    3) Reduce 5HT Levels eg aerobic exercise, pumpkin seeds, saw palmetto, propecia. Propecia is expensive rest all should be $20/mnth
    4) Healthy food including daily vitamins supplementation including biotin. few more $
    5) Rogaine but mainly for the top part of scalp. As past of Bosley 6 myth kit $800 but Hair club 6 mnth $1800
    6) Laser to improve blood flow. e.g. Hairmax. Buy separatly $ 300 or part of hair club or bolsey 6 mnth supply
    7)At last hair transplant . Very very expensive about 8000 to 10000 DOLLARS.
    8)Go bald least expensive and most painful.

    I will try everything to save my hair before the last option of hair transplant. If you have stress and trust me this is a very important cause for hair lose which we don't recognize. Try yoga , meditation, self help books, inner game videos and even psychiatrist. Hope this help.

    I cannot advise you this and I can only suggest seeing a doctor. Finasteride can be obtained from a wal-mart pharmacy for around $30-50 a year. Just tell your doctor you want to cut the pills apart- most dr.s will understand. 5mg finasteride for 90 days cost me $26. I cut them in fifths as my doctor instructed me to and I have a year and 3 months supply.
