25 years old and for the past 2 months I have been noticing that there is a small bald spot in my head. Arrow points at spot of concern

I understand that if the link isn't clickable it may present an issue, think if you guys copy and paste the link inbetween the image boxes then you might be able to see the pic. Sorry guys I am worrying right now and it is screwing with my head.

Sorry, it does seem so, but there's lots of things you can do like 1) take vitamins, especially if you're under stress, 2) silica supplements can help regrow hair, 3) revise your entire diet to get rid of junk and unhealthy foods, too much alcohol, sugar, etc., 4) change shampoo to a mild one, particularly if you're using one with sulfates, 5) massage your scalp using rosemary essential oil preferably mixed into a "carrier" oil like most any vegetable oil. And stop worrying, that's going to give you more stress, just start taking good care of yourself and your hair.

Besides the excellent advice from previous poster, I recommend STOPPING SHAMPOO! That's right, for guys with their shorter hair, no need to use anything but water and your massaging fingers. My 60 year old husband's hair has actually gotten a bit thicker since he quit shampoo, he has a very thin baldish spot on the back of his head that he has had for many years, and it has actually improved.

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.

if it makes any difference, I just recently got a haircut (like 3 days ago) but thanks for the honesty. Also, how severe is it?

Is there a reason you didn't ask your barber?


If you go to a hair care shop, there are a couple of shampoos on the market that men have told me regrow hair over time. They swear by this, and have shown me some of the new growth.

I couldn't access the pic, but it sounds like this is at an early enough stage that no one will notice, or care.

Default I saw your picture...

I saw you picture and your hair loss isn't that bad. A friend of mine was going through the same thing and he started using Rogaine which can be bought at Sam's or Costco at a reasonable price, as well as Propecia and his hair loss was reversed. Today his hair is as thick as it was originally.

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.

I guarantee ... it's not as bad as it seems to be in your own head.
