Hi. Are you still following this topic? Anyway. If you started losing hair this early the only suggestion is you accept that you will be bald in a few years. It started for me at about the same age, at the temples. Top of the head went noticeably thin when I was 20, bald spot there when I was 21, bald plate when 24 with some hair left in front (Norwood stage 5), end of story at 27 with hair in front gone and crown of hair around my head gone low (Norwood stage 7). At 16 I didn't really care, it didn't seem bad, at 20 I panicked and a year later I started to think it was actually cool, very manly. I don't think I missed any girls because of it, quite the contrary. My first girlfriend (17) was imagining me bald and loved the idea of it, and from age 20 on girls wanted to touch my head and admired my early balding. So I really came to think of it as cool. When I was 25/26 a few friends started losing their hair too and they came to me for advice on how to deal with it. I told them all to accept it but I notice that most of them are unable to do so. My brother of course followed suit and he fought against it as well as he could but he hated it. So if you can, see the bright side of it and feel beautiful.
