My hair is not very long at all, I recently shaved it, and now its growing back. but My Hair is beginning to thin,(Not balding, and not recedeing hair line, but thinning in general) as a last ditch effort to have long hair, I am contemplating dreading it when it gets long enough.

Any advice?

Also, referance pictures would be great!

^The annoying thing is, my genes are pretty good on the hair loss side of things yet, my hair is already fleeing my head

My Dad will be chuckling away when I am bald at 22 and he will be 62 with a thick full head of hair. Hmmm maybe I was adopted

the baldness gene actually comes from your mothers side, so your best bet is to have a look at your maternal grandfather.

If you want it long then you could glue in random bits of extensions to make your hair appear thicker.

My grandad has a full head of hair. His two sons have receded hairlines, but mine is obviously gonna go furthur

people say ''losing hair''....like you misplaced it somewhere...lol, you didnt LOSE it.....IT FELL OUT!

Keep shaving your head. My family doesn't have a history of losing hair, at least not a lot, so I shouldn't really lose much. I started shaving my head anyway though, so if I do start losing it, it's not really noticeable.

god i love my hair. god i love being 19...nice and thick and full hair. i can put a whole comb through it without losing 1.


i don't think thin dreads would look too cool. dreads are supposed to be thick and gnarly not thin and wispy. i think short hair is going to be a necessity man. sorry in advance about the hair cut man, aging sucks.

?


I think my hair might be thinning as well, and I'm only 18

But hopefully I just keep pulling it out because its getting long and messy.

I don't think dreads would be a good idea. I used to have them. After talking to a handful of hairdressers, I've found that they believe that the tension on the scalp caused by the dreads actually contributes to a receding hairline. On the other hand, they could just be saying that, considering dreads = no "real" haircuts.
#18
I wouldn't do dreads. Longer hair actually makes your hair loss more obvious. It leaves wider parts and it falls leaving awkward gaps, depending on the length. I've seen it on a few friends. I'm 21 and thinning slowly, but a shorter (though still somewhat decent) haircut makes it look thicker.

I do miss the curly locks, though

You could try Propecia?

If your hair is thinning, dreadlocks will not help. In fact, it will probably look worse. What you need to do is get a stiff bristled nylon brush and brush your hair 100 strokes at least once or twice everyday. That's what my gf told me and my hair has started to not only stop thinning, but actually regain thickness. Basically, hair is made up of protein. When you brush your hair with a stiff brush, you're in essence massaging your scalp. With that massage you get increased blood flow to your scalp. Your blood carries lots of the proteins that your hair needs and thus, brushing should help. Other than that, there's not much you can do to fight mother nature on this one. Take a look at your mom's father. That's also a good indicator, if he was bald, genetics say the chances of you being bald are very high.

i wouldnt do it you would look stupid with thin dreads i would say to wash it every day and use conditioner that helps also make sure when you shower not to just rub in the shampoo but kind of scratch your head as you do it thatll get rid of any excess dandruff so thatll help to
