Going to battle my hair-loss. Feedback please. *pictures inside*

Recommended Posts

I've shaved my hair down since 2010 to hide my thinning.

Recently I've grown it out, and decided that I want to try to restore as much as I can, since it's not as bad as I've thought all these years.


Gonna start finasteride in 2 weeks to keep it at this level, and minoxidil for the next 10+ years... (ordered it)

To maintain what I have, and if I'm lucky - some re-growth.


When I get enough $$ I'll go on with a hair transplant for the crown and temples...


What do you guys think about my plan?

I don't know about setting a 10 year date to stop any medication. I would plant on being on both until something better comes along.

Sounds like a good plan. However, it looks like you may lose a lot more. Get on those medications before it's too late. Best of luck Hopefully you can stabilize the loss.
