Male Pattern: With the advent of 5-alpha-reductace inhibitors such as Propecia and the evolution of surgical hair restoration, living with noticeable hair loss is no longer inevitable. Rogaine (minoxidil) for men is also effective in combination or alone. For the first time in the history it is now possible to stop or slow the progression of hair loss and to replace lost hair through hair transplants.

Sure: While you're working on looking great, why not get back into that fitness-focused lifestyle you had as a teen? Remember how much fun it was? Once you've reconnected with this side of yourself, you may even decide it doesn't matter where you do or don't have hair, and embrace your genetics and total masculinity. Best wishes.

Is there any way I can evaluate if I'm balding at home - I think I'm losing too much hair I don't see it fall but looks a lot less?

Yes: At 22 years of age excessive hair loss may be an indication of medical illness. Hence an evaluation is important
