In brief: Limited

All men have remodeling of their hairline over the temples around age 20.
How fast this progresses to male pattern baldness correlates closely with how hairy your chest is. This is genetic. Forget "pop" cures. You can slow it down some with the available medications, or get baldness surgery. Or you can embrace your genetic masculine heritage, get really fit and look fantastic, like photo guy.
