    I’m 28, and I started losing my hair at about 20, which felt super early. I cut it all off at around 25, because I didn’t want to waste the rest of my 20s worrying about a vanity issue which I had 0 control over. And much like yourself, people really didn’t make much of a deal out of it. Glad to see a fellow human who won’t let a haircut define your worth. Props.

    Hey as a guy that had long hair down to my shoulders and some years even longer length. I saw the same, less hair than when I was high school, more hairs on the pillow when I woke up. So after 15 years of keeping the same look, the past November for the first time since going to the army I just took the hair cutting machine and went with the lowest setting. It's so liberating, but at the same time my head gets cold now xD Also it's just hair, they will grow back up.

    I literally went to get my hair cut and discovered I had developed alopecia right after I watched this video. I'm not saying they had anything to do with each other, but I have a feeling I will be rewatching this for motivation after speaking with my doctor. I respect your bravery, and thank you for making a video about it to share with other people who go through similar struggles.

      @m00n5truck Hi, I'm really sorry that you're going through something like this, and I wanted to let you know that you're not alone and I exactly know how you're feeling right now. I had to deal with alopecia once I hit my puberty and it really caused a lot of damage to my self-confidence and as a girl I was really insecure throughout my teenage years. I had to go through applying tons of ointment and medicines before I finally found out it's an autoimmune disease and there's no permanent or exact cure for it, at least not yet. But don't lose hope, if it's alopecia areata, most of the time it goes away and hair always grows back. Anyway, if it's alopecia areata (partial alopecia with one or different/multiple bald spots) I'd suggest you to give onion and onion juice a try. Trust me, it works like magic. Apply onion juice on your scalp, and make sure to massage onion juice properly on the bald spots. Keep applying it regularly, and you'll notice after some time that the hair is regrowing. Apart from onion juice you can also apply fenugreek seeds paste, castor oil, almond oil (a must try), rosemary oil etc. They're really helpful. I hope it helps... And I really hope and pray for your speedy recovery... Just know that it's gonna be okay... Stay strong. Sending you lots of love and light. I've learned one thing from this journey and that is: "I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within." (Rumi)

    If i can say, and deduced from your video... worry is a main cause of why you are losing your hair sooner. Repeated several times by you. At it's core.. worry indicates a fear about the future and you are telling your body I don't want to live anymore as it's bad outcome coming my way (when all we have is the present which is pretty awesome). Worry = fear/rejection = give me less life! Joy/celebration/appreciaton = give me more life/appreciation! Also stress tightens and restricts everything. Am I correct to assume you never comb your hair/head (with a natural material comb) .. women do this often and don't lose their hair like men because the act of combing helps the circulation of hair follicles and strengthening.. I swear it's an ancient asian secret too (you want to use a natural material vs plastic as it carries the charge/harmony of the natural world.) It also doesn't hurt to practice the self-care of taking a moment to comb and appreciate your body (my fun mantra when I remember and comb is.. I love my hair, I love my health, I love my wealth, I love myself). And either way you looking FETCH, even if this is perspective of a not opposite sex being lol. Cheers. Maybe try a NO WORRY -don't worry be happy challenge where you aren't allowed to worry for a xxx amount of time. Be well~

    Wow, such inspiration. I felt your pain and relief but from the other side of the hair spectrum. I have too much puffy, fizzy, hair and I decided to let it do it's natural thing which is to grow out big and unruly. I was really self conscious to do this at first, but with time I have also realized that people eventually accept your new hair and at the end of the day no one really cares what you do with your hair. It funny how having too little hair is a problem and having too much hair is a problem too.

    So sad to see someone in so early stages of male pattern baldness where you could stop it from receding more or even get some of your hair back just shaving it off. The drugs you where talking about that can cause irreversible impotenz is just wrong and there are no studies for that. The drug is on the market since 1998 or longer and there have been never such statements such as "irreversible ED" before 2009. You should reconsider your thoughts of giving up on the fight against male pattern baldness. And also to mention, side effects on Finasteride are really uncommon and disappear after a few months. Did you ever hear about irreversible side effects by women taking birth control? Yeah me neither.
