recently I notice that my hairline is receding, especially near my right temple. initially i brushed it off as stress from my final academic year. but weirdly, i am growing more body hair elsewhere. are these signs of balding? any recommendations to stop or slow down the process?

Typical male baldness pattern. Start by using hair tonic daily after washing your hair - at least once a day. This will slow down the process and maybe even helps to activate the hair to grow again.

Any good salons or barbers to recommend? It is hard to find a good hairdresser who can advise on neat hairstyles for thinning hair

Unless you have long hair that needs to be dressed,  no point going for expensive hairdresser.  Try the malay or indian barber shop and tell them not to over trim the part where hair is thinning.   Most of them are quite compassionate about your situation because some barbers themselves have similar dilemma like you.

Although I'm not blading yet, I do notice thinning of hair at the crown.

 

I have been going for hair treatment and putting serum for the past 15 years but hair thinning still happens.

 

What else could I do?

Alopecia is not curable.  It is part of aging.  Minoxidil can help hair regrowth but only on certain area of your head but it will stop growing because it is topical medicine.   Unless you do topical minoxidil together with oral Finasteride, to ensure thicker hair growth.  It is a permanent medication, like taking high blood pressure medication and you should not stop. Otherwise your hair will recede again.  As for side effect,  Finasteride may cause low blood pressure and impotency.  Check with your doctor.

 

More expensive alternative is hair transplant.  

 

Best is to embrace the cause of nature and accept your baldness.  Less money spend, less worry.  Eventually, you may want to consider shaving botak and start wearing a nice cap to look cool and which also bring out the charm of some not so good looking guy.

Can try shampoos which helps reduce hair loss. I have tried few brands, actually most do help to certain extent.

The best so far is Grafen Zero Dirty, cleans your scalp thoroughly after massaging for 30s or more. been using for abt 6 months, I find my hair loss has reduced significantly, and the amount becomes not noticeable, maybe a few strands on some days after shower. I don’t use treatments (home or saloon) cos of laziness and don’t like staining my pillows 😅

try for at about 2 weeks or half a bottle to determine if it helps, unless it gives adverse effects. Best part, not expensive at all compared to most hair treatments cost.

 

Hope you’ll be able to find a product that works for you too 😉

Shampoo helps to puff up your hair to visually look thicker. But it does not help to thicken your hair from it's root. The only benefit is the massage part during shampooing. It helps to circulate blood to your scalp, hoping to nourish the dying follicles and rid the dead hairs. Thus, you u see less hair falling after a few wash.

Hello friends, my pubic hair is turning white and thinning. Any suggestion to keep it black and lush?

Did you read the article in ST yesterday or the day before about male pheremones (is this spelt right?); that invisible odourless chemical that give men that extra sexy appeal? The main source of male pheremones is the armpits, that's why there is so much hair there...to increase surface area and help in the dispersal of the pheremones. I think the pubic hair to has that role too.

i decided to try mirconeedling for scalp + applying Minoxidil, first session today. I just hoped that my hair loss condition will improve. i learned to embrace it since my father relative side all got balding problems (genetics), but sometimes you will still feel insecure especially when i'm still in my 20 plus going 30..... so i decided give it a go....

Try Biotin, can get on iherb (Natrol, 10,000mcg). Consider starting with 2 pills a day for first bottle and subsequently 1 pill a day as per recommended dose.

 

Don't get low strength ones, you need to have min. amount to see the effect (google studies on biotin intake).

Could you share your experience with the treatment? Am curious about the effectiveness of micro-needling with minoxidil. I'm currently using Mantou Shampoo and serum which has helped to calm my over sensitive / oily scalp and visibly reduce my hair-fall. I do believe the earlier treatment starts, the more hair saved.
