Hi ‘Too Young to be bald’, thank you for the question.

Your best approach would be to see a dermatologist who can examine the scalp and look for other causes of early hair loss. However this may be a genetic factor from your mom’s side (one of the males) or from your father’s side (further back in the family line) and if this is the case unfortunately there is not much one can do to prevent this hair loss.

The only available options are various surgical implantation of hair follicles but my advice would be to research this very well and the surgeon/doctor performing these procedures before deciding on a particular treatment choice.
