Yes, I agree the main ones are fin and min the other stuff may help even if limited.

It's become normal now i take fin and the vit in the morning i have lunch late in the afternoon so don't know if this is making it work better on empty stomach etc
After a shower and towel dry hair i use min so it's easy to do.

I hope i could have a ht if i cannot then atleast the meds helped improve and regrow hair but it was not enough to stop the reflection of light from the scalp which only the ht would be able to do.

What has been proposed by Dr Bisanga depending on the donor is fut & fue with beard hair as well
so I get coverage all over, to give the illusion of density and stop the reflection of light from the scalp.

A few months now i've been taking,

Fin 1 tab lasts 3 days
Min 1 time a day
A-z vitamins every other day
biotin 5000upg everyday
msm, everyday
Alpecin shampoo and sometimes nizarol

I have noticed my hair looking healthy and no more regrowth but more improvement what i got.

Also i saw Dr Bisanga again after 1 year more on fin,min and supplements,

The Doctor agrees to do your surgery, but you will have to continue with the vitamins and Minoxidil
to make sure that you have a good result.
Doing only FUE will not give you enough coverage, as your donor density is on the lower side.
Dr. Bisanga proposes to do a combo procedure by using the FUT and the FUE technique at the same time to
harvest as much grafts as possible over 1 intervention.
He will be able to get around 3000-3500 grafts with the FUT technique and 1500-1800 grafts with the FUE technique.
This will give coverage to the frontal area, the mid scalp and the frontal crown area.

Hi Rashid

Really enjoyed reading this and seeing your fantastic results! A few questions for you:

Having tried the derma roller and stopped it, is this something you would recommend now?

Just wondering if you have thought of trying the hairmax lazer combe? I use it and find it thickens my hair up, my barber even noticed the improvement. It took 6+ months of regimented use (8 mins every other day to see the improvement. I bought mine on ebay with the thought I could just sell it back on ebay if I didn't like it.

Also wondering if you are going to go ahead with the HT? Have you considered getting just fue done along with smp and then keeping the hair short? Looks like you suit short hair.

Hi Rwethereyet,

The only thing i noticed really improve my hair was minox and then propecia.

The other stuff i thought i just try to see if it makes a difference or not.

I got a rash in my scalp a while back and thought it could have been the derma roller so i stopped it. I don't know how much of a differnce it made but some say it helps absorb minox better and better blood circulation.

Soon I will only be using minox and a fda laser comb so if i notice any further improvements i will post them.

Regarding ht i hope sometime next year and fue only.

Thanks

Why are you going to eliminate fin/propecia? It works much better than minoxidil.

I feel minox is working well enough for me and fin is not worth risking side effects in my situation at present. Having said that I still got 3 months supply left.
Currently im using 0.3mg every other day and still worried about unknown / effects etc

Also cost of fin and supplements adds up im trying things and trying to find the stuff that works for me so these next few months i'm going to use minox, fda laser band and cr lab hair loss products and then see.
