Default September update

4.5 months on.

I think that all the hair that's likely to regrow is regrowing.

Still early days champ. Takes upto a year to see the full effects, then it tapers off.

Wow matt that really impressive, comparing your first photos when you were 14 weeks in, it a real difference. Is that foam all over or only at specific areas?

I have been on Lipogaine (liquid) am and alternating with generic (Spectral UHP Pm) for around 5 - 6 weeks, hopefully get similar results

Did you get any shedding at all? Having never used it i had loads, hopefully it will fill back. Also are you doing anything against DHT?

Thanks for sharing.

Foam all over the top of the head. I think I may have had a small shed after about a month.

I tried Finpecia for 2 months but had to give up because of the sides.

hmm - tempted to switch to foam now . Liquid is ok but foam seems a bit more managable amd doesnt makes your hair look oily/damp? Couple of queries. with using foam?

* Does it take long to dry?
* Do you massage it in or do you just let dissolve topically?

Cheers

i put a lot on in small sprays then massage in. It dries in under 5 minutes.

Best thing would be to buy a tin and try it out.

Of all the people here who have taken minoxidil, how many of you have experienced the whole bag/dark circle under eyes thing people talk about online?

Foam at night only - I lay it on thick! Just switched to the Kirland Generic Foam which I find is a little more watery than Regaine.

I use Alpecin Caffine shampoo daily and Nizoral once every 5 days.
