This is an early stage of ‘male-pattern’ baldness.

The most effective treatment is usually a combination of topical Minoxidil e.g. Regaine and oral Finasteride (1mg).

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It feel like a sharp sensation sometimes then it will go then I'll feel tight sensation

When did you perm your hair?

As long as the scalp appears healthy, I’m struggling to attribute this symptom directly to the perm. Typically this type of sensation is referred from the upper neck and is due to some mild tension/irritation to the nerve(s) that innervate this area. Performing daily neck physiotherapy exercises/stretches can often help.
