Hey all. I am new to this group. While I am just in beginning stages of balding at age 40ish, I want to prevent it if at all possible. My g'ma and aunt both reached near baldness. 3 years ago, I noticed my scalp getting burnt, especially my part. Now it's obvious it's thin in a strip from bangs through crown. If there is a slightest breeze, it just flips and flops like feathers. The rest of my hair is very thick. Currently, I use Toppik to fill in the bald areas (I love it, and it's enough for now.) Tried Roggaine but not sure if it did anything. Plus, I didn't use it as directed. So, here are my questions: * What kind of baldness is hereditary? * What would you suggest I do now? See a dermatologist? Start some kind of regiment? (I know you can't give recommendations, but what would YOU do, if I were you?) Thanks!
