Oh, i hope so that here will be somebody who will help me with his or her experience and with true knowledge and understanding...
So, almost 2 years ago, when i was 16, my hair started falling out, and it s all happened, i think, in two, three months ( maybe, even one half of my hair has fallen out).. -all from top of my scalp.... and then after that i met some dermatlogist and he said me that it s androgenetic alopecia... and so, he gave me some pills with b-complex i think...
he gave me also minoxiddil and then my hair sudennly stopped falling out...
.... but maybe i should've mentioned that before all that, i had enormous amount of stress, i lost somebody and it almost killed me...
so, it s probably important to say for me, but when i said it to my dermatologist he tought that it s not so related with my hair loss but it s for me unlogicaly... and it s unlogicaly too that nobody in my family has no adrogenetic baldness ( maybe i can count even 100 members -my aunts, grandmathers, grandfathers, cousins etc)

Please, could anyone help me, it s so important to me... i' d rather give all my fingers if it should than my hair and my look
