Can Minoxidil alone stop the thinning in my crown?

As the title says can minox stop my hair loss without me taking propecia? My crown is thinning and I'd really like to stop it and possibly see if it will thicken back up a little.

 

I've never used rogaine before, so I don't really know what effect it will have on me.

Stop,,,maybe for a while. I personally don't think that it is a great permanent solution when finasteride is available. I have seen thicken up a crown, I just don't think it is great for a long term fight. That said, it is better than nothing if you are committed to using it.

Thank you for the replies, gentlemen. This is what I figured, so I will probably try rogaine 5%. As far as fin goes, I really would have to give it some thought as to whether I want to take it over the long term.

 

The native hair on top of my head is gone with only transplants left. At this point I would be strictly trying to save my crown. If I could do that, I could probably look halfway decent with 2 procedures.
