Hair loss?: All normally masculinized men lose the hair on their temples between ages 18 and 22. You are too young otherwise to express male pattern baldness. How fast you lose your hair on top correlates closely with how much chest hair you are naturally blessed with. If you have telogen effluvium, it will usually self-cure. If you have alopecia areata it not rxable; a fungus infection is easy to rx.

If you do eventually develop hair loss like many men do, please keep in mind that 95% of good looks for a man is physical fitness. This is entirely under your control. Vin Diesel isn't complaining. Best wishes.
