Yes. It will strengthen native hair and reduce the risk of shock loss. Many surgeons recommend starting on it at least twelve months before any surgery. The Finasteride might also thicken your hair and help fill in those areas on top of your head where the hair is thinning but not gone.
I take mine in the morning. Just do whatever is easier for you.
So it’s best to take/try finasteride before a procedure? Does it strengthen the native hair and that’ll help with shock loss? Also what would the best time be to take finasteride, upon waking or before bed?
Well, firstly six months isn't really a great enough timeline to see results on Minoxidil. Second, if you're not on Finasteride or a similar DHT blocker you're making a big mistake. You're increasing the risk of shock loss, almost guaranteeing more future loss, and ignoring an option that might make you reconsider having a transplant at all.
So if we grow hair mid-length are signs of surgery become more noticeable? I like to get a very short haircut (military to hide temples) and then keep growing hair until its very long. Then cut again and repeat cycle. I like to experience all hair lengths. So that got me a bit worried, as I believed hair transplant is going to help me stop worrying constantly about how my hair looks...
