  1. Look into a system. I've seen some incredible videos with your type of hair. because its so thick naturally the systems actually look good. https://shoppeblack.us/2018/05/wade-the-barber-man-weave/
  2. It this something you have to take more of the longer you use it?
  3. I've never really had fin shed. I think I'm interested in the MINPill because putting foam on twice a day is really annoying. Is the MINPILL something I have to get prescribed by a doctor?
  4. Thoughts on all this, anyone? assuming these side effects are more prevalent with pill form?
  5. This is a side effect, and 80% is kind of scary! You basically become a wolf-man. Dermatologic-Hypertrichosis-Elongation, thickening, and enhanced pigmentation of fine body hair are seen in about 80% of patients taking minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil tablets) tablets) tablets) tablets. This develops within 3 to 6 weeks after starting therapy. It is usually first noticed on the temples, between the eyebrows, between the hairline and the eyebrows, or in the side-burn area of the upper lateral cheek, later extending to the back, arms, legs, and scalp. Upon discontinuation of minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil tablets) tablets) tablets) , new hair growth stops, but 1 to 6 months may be required for restoration to pretreatment appearance. No endocrine abnormalities have been found to explain the abnormal hair growth; thus, it is hypertrichosis without virilism. Hair growth is especially disturbing to children and women and such patients should be thoroughly informed about this effect before therapy with minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil (minoxidil tablets) tablets) tablets) is begun. Allergic-Rashes have been reported, including rare reports of bullous eruptions, and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome.
  6. Where can I get it? Obviously I can find out myself, but gotta make sure im not getting sawdust! Any other side effects besides heart attacks? lol
  7. I do. I always keep a few of each product on hand because they run out fast.
  8. Its is expensive =/ I still use it. I wouldnt now of a comparable. I do use Viviscal conditioner, maybe try their shampoo? I used to use it, just switched to photoworx.
  9. I need to look up side effects of oral but its an idea ive meant to look into
  10. yeah, i tried liquid briefly and my scalp was pure white so stayed with the foam and while not as bad i still have it as you can see in the photo.
  11. I kind of agree but obviously what Ive bee doing is trying to avoid surgery. I mean if it works Ill be a poster boy.
  12. P.S hate is not strong enough a word for dandruff. Who thinks I should stop Rogaine??
  13. some photo updates. I have Rogaine foam in so after it dried i just brushed it through a little. The hair combed in the right direction can do wonders! I started Derma rolling the temple points, Hoping to see some progress there. Ill start adding those photos as well.
