Comments about hair loss treatments you've tried or are considering:
While finasteride hasn't regrown any hair for me that I'm aware of, I do think it has helped me slow my hair loss in the crown area. Minoxidil 5% (i.e. Rogaine) does seem to thicken my hair to a limited degree in the crown as well. It has been multiple sessions of hair transplantation that have given me the most dramatic and lasting improvements.

From too much hair, to too little, to just right.

It's been a long journey from my days in high school when I had almost too much hair to my late twenties and early thirties when I felt prematurely old and bald(ing). But fortunately I was able to counter act much of my balding using a combination of multiple hair transplants, finasteride and minoxidil. For me it was like rolling back time and in many ways it felt like regaining my lost...
