I am sorry to tell you but the answer is that it is. It is important to undergo a consultation with a hair loss specialist in your area for a complete evaluation. This should include a thorough history and physical examination, including dermoscopy and Haircheck or hair mass index measurement , as well as a baseline photos series. This is all important for future evaluation to assess progression and response to therapy.

18 years old and possible early hair loss
Your biggest enemy is the progressive thinning leading to a balding pattern that is not evident at this point in time. The degree of thinning that you are experiencing would suggest that you should see a doctor who most likely will get Bulk Measurements of your hair to determine the degree of the thinning that you are presently having. If the diagnosis is early genetic hair loss (the most common cause of hair loss in young men), then the best treatment would be the drug finasteride which is highly effective in men of your age and may not only stop the hair loss but possibly reverse it. If you are developing a more advanced balding pattern the HAIRCHECK test will determine the Bulk Measurements of your hair and put a number on that hair loss (a metric) and this will show, over a one-year time frame, how effective the treatment will be. Once you know this information, then you and your doctor need to develop a MASTER PLAN which will define what you need to do over the years to come.
