Hello Dr. Robert

I am 18 yrs old (male) and have a problem with my hair. My hair is pretty thick and short. It is very Brillo like and hard. I dont like how it feels. Anyways, I cut my hair some while back. A few days ago, I noticed a bald spot right in the back of my head in that center spot. I guess you call it crown balding? I felt it and I took pictures of it. I became worried because there was no hair there at all. I can feel my scalp. It was the size of a nickel and around it seemed like it was very thin (the hair). Even at the front of my hair, towards the left; the left side doesn’ grow evenly with the right (where the widows peak is). So today i shaved off all my hair hoping it would come back stronger. So I am not sure what to do.

  • Is this really balding?
  • What should I do?
  • Any products or shampoos I can use?
  • Is there any way to make my hair softer? (its to hard and has a dry feeling)
  • What can be the cause of this? Stress?
  • Should I not comb my hair all the time?



Difficult to tell your whole problem for your description, but at 18 years of age, you are definitely not a candidate for surgery. I would suggest seriously considering medical treatment including propecia and minoxidil. Read my free ebook at and send me pictures for a complete evaluation.
