You might also want to add gelatin to your diet, be sure to get enough protein. B vitamins are also excellent for hair, i would take a balanced B supplement.
I'm glad you mentioned the shampoo as I'm a little shy about telling people to stop even though I don't use it myself (but I co-wash instead).

I too started taking Knox gelatin recently for all of its benefits (skin, hair, nails, joints, sleep, etc.), it also makes a great protein deep treatment and/or hair gel too.

Ohnotthis28, I agree it's not bad at this point but it's the right time to start taking preventive measures.

That could easily just be your hair parted weird. It's hard to tell one way or another, but even if your losing it you are a long LONG way from it being bad. I'm 25 and my hair is pretty well decimated, you are fine.

If you start using those 2 products (which have been approved by the FDA) now, I can assure you not only will your hair loss stop, it will start growing in again and be as thick or almost as thick as it used to be. I've seen the results on my friend and can attest that those 2 products really work.
when you stop using them your hair all falls out though, so once you start your using them for life. No thanks.

Plus, propencia has really messed with a lot of guys. What good is a full head of hair if your impotent?

To me, balding has more to do with the hairline, like this:

What Are the Common Causes of a Receding Hairline in Men?

Your hairline looks nice and low.

This only looks like the VERY beginnings of thinning hair, which is natural. Not a crisis, and definitely not worth using special products or freaking out.

Well, my friend's hair starting thinning about 10 years ago. He was really stressing about it and then started using Rogaine. When his hair stopped falling out, and started growing in, he was very happy with the results. And apparently, he feel's its worth it.

Impotency might be one of the side effects for some men. It hasn't affected my friend that way if I'm to believe the stories of his adventures in the dating scene.

The great thing is the OP has all these options to choose from, or not for an issue that is obviously causing him some concern.

I looks like an odd spot to start balding. The rest of your hair looks nice and thick. If it were me, I would talk to a dermatologist to see what he thinks. A lot of people seem to have success with Rogaine. Good luck!

Yeah, well it's all fun and games until you are one of the "some" men. I don't need hair to attract and satisfy women, but I do need my man parts and sex drive to be functioning.
