I am 20 years old. I have worked hard on my body by losing 177 lbs and trying to gain muscle. I just took this picture this week and I noticed it looks like I'm balding. I'm worried, being bald will make me look worse.
Does it look like I'm balding? What can I do and am I doomed?
Based on your profile picture I would never guess that you were once overweight. Wow...Great job! I once lost around 90 pounds and by the end of it I had bald patches...not pretty...and not normal for a girl. It was because losing that much weight is such a prolonged process on such a low calorie diet...it definitely has some negative effects. The good news is my hair all came back once I started developing a really well balanced, slightly higher calorie "maintenance" diet. Now my hair is normal, healthy, and shiny...and I'm still at my goal weight. = )
According to your other profile pictures, it seems like you've actually grown some hair compared to the other pictures. Your hairline is simply slightly higher than the average person's. Was your maternal grandfather bald? Old wives say that's where your hair gene comes from and could provide you with some indication of what your future holds.
