Dr. Ziering,

I am 16 year old male teen, the hair on the top of my head has been thinning since age 9-10 and I fear that the stage will come that I will not have hair on the top of my head by the coming year.  My self confidence is getting down day by day.  I'm just not able to go outside without my baseball cap.  I have tried many hair products and many treatments but none with good results.  One of my friends told me to try an herbal hair regrowth shampoo.  Should I give this one a try or am I wasting my time?

Need your help!

Regards,

Thinning Fast!

Response:

It is important to understand why you are losing your hair. So your first step should be to schedule an appointment with a hair loss specialist who can evaluate you, assess your hair loss and give you a proper diagnosis for what is causing your loss.

If the cause is androgenic alopecia or typical Male Pattern Hair Loss (MPHL), then you should try a 12 month course of FDA approved treatments like Propecia, Minoxidil, or Laser therapy as prescribed by a physician.
