10 weeks into Minoxidil

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

 

I am 26 year male from India. I was suffering from hair thinning problem from past 3 years. I started using Minoxidil 2% 10 weeks before. Here are my recent pictures, I dont know weather i have gained some hair or not but i will still continue to use it.

Which pattern of hair fall do i fall in?

It's difficult to say exactly what norwood class you're in because your hair is very short, but overall you look good. It does seem that you're experiencing some thinning on the crown and hairline area so I would say perhaps an early stage 3V. Rogaine does not usually begin show results until about 5-6 months, so keep using it twice a day and don't stop it. You should use the medication for a year to see the actual results, because your hairs need to mature. You may also want to consult with a doctor about propecia (finasteride) as another way of keeping and regrowing your hair.

It's now 13 weeks into my treatment. Can see few new hair growing near left temple. I apply Minoxidil 2% twice a day, once at 9 am and other dose at 9 pm. Initially i had scalp itching but with regular use that side effect has gone. I have also started using Propecia 2.5 mg once every 2 day. It been a month since i am on Propecia and i have no side effects as many here were suggesting. Few pimples pop's up every now and then, but that's manageable.

 

Attaching my updated pic, but camera quality is not that good, but still..

I have started noticing few gray hair after using Minoxidil, I never had even a single gray hair. am I just assuming things or using Minoxidil causes hair to turn gray?

Hair will do that but if you carry on using it the hair will turn darker over time.

 

Just a waiting game.
