  1. hye buddy! i am on generic finasteride for last 8 months and frankly here are the results : 1- not helped the frontal hairline which has been looking worse. 2- scalp hair has not seen tragic fall as seen prior to finasteride use.I cant feel happy but satisfied by scalp condition. 3- mild side effects seen(say lack of libido) in first week and then that vanished. Personally speaking, be on finasteride for at least 1year before evaluating results. GOOD LUCK
  2. hello brotha, even i had similar loss when i was 20, now i am 23 and easily NW 3 and depressed. Even i thought my hairline was maturing but sadly i was going bald. DONT waste a single day start finasteride(either 0.5mg or 1mg by consulting the Doctor only) Educate yourself about the meds and have them. The best would be maintain the hair that you have got now . BEST OF LUCK
  3. I was referring to the regular coconut oil or any other oil that primarily moisturizes our hair. Thanks for your quick response mate

NO side effects though:o. already NW 4(jumped from 3 to 4 from last month). i dont apply hair oil at all because bald spaces appear. is it ok ? what have you all got to say ? HELP!!! :confused:
  6. guys does finasteride help young people who have history of NW 7's. yep i am on this track fearingly. coz for the coming 2 years i cant see transplant happening.
  7. guys i am on finasteride 1mg and minox 10% no side effects yet. little nervous if the drug is working

  10. hey for ur hairloss level, u shud not be considering HT. continue ur minoxidil for some years and then decide.. i can see ur frontal hair is good... HT works well practically in front and not in crown region... meds r meant for crown region..
