Well, I’m 27 years old, I developed my mature hair line at the age of 13. I remember other children in the class joking saying I was going bald… I guess my question is because I developed it at such a young age, if I was going bald would it occur sooner. My Father began balding before my age, my mothers father had a full head of hair, my brothers and I still have our hair ages ranging 31 to 27. I guess I’m just a bit worried about it, What age do you really start going bald.
If you lost your child hairline at 13 years old and your classmates laughed at you, you will now have the last laugh at those who were cruel. Hair loss can start in the teens, although it is highly unusual. The usual story is that there are two things going on at one time. The maturing hairline can start to appears as the frontal juvenile hairline recedes somewhere between 17-29 years old, on average. The balding process can start as early as late teens, but if it does and there is appreciable hair loss in the teens, it is a predictor that severe balding may occur. The later the balding starts, the better off you would be and the less advanced will be the patterned hair loss. If you have no signs of balding now, you probably will not bald and follow the pattern of your father. I hope that is the way the story unfolds over time.
Good luck (that is what you need a little of here), and thanks for sharing this with us.
