Thanks for responding. Have you tried using the HIMs shampoo at all? It has DHT blocking active ingredients as claimed. Just wondeirng, because i saw that you purchased a separate DHT blocking shampoo for some reason

I purchased a shampoo with 1% Ketoconazole. Had nothing to do with DHT really. As someone else in this thread mentioned, get Nizoral.

2 month mark doing the above religiously. 2 months in I've seen 2 marketable differences. 

 

1) thicker hair

2) new growth

 

The last pic is an upclose of the left temple area where there was zero hair before starting finesteride in September and the rest after. If you cannot see them there are small hairs growing all over the pace. This is happening on the right and starting to happen in the front of my hair line as well. Not easy to notice but in person they are very noticeable. Praying this is happening on crown as well. i just cant see or photo it because of angle. 

 

I dont notice as much difference in the crown, which sucks because its what I am cognizant of the most, but an upclose shows some progress. (last 2 pics)

Hope this helps someone out there. 

 

Belated merry Christmas all and happy holidays. Today is 3 month mark for Finesteride with added 1% Ketoconazole shampoo and derma rolling and Rogaine added along the way as well as my regular vitamins and such. Pictures taken this morning. (up close temporal is left side to show hairs growing as this was the weakest side)

 

Let me know what you think. Thoughts on crown filling in more?

**there are quite a few vellus hairs in the temporal area, and I do believe these are becoming terminal, anyone care to correct me if this is not possible considering my age/hair loss?

 

You cannot see them in the photos but in the right light I can, they are getting longer.

You are having some very good progress for only a few months. Since you've only been doing this for 3 months (is that correct?) then I think there will be further improvements over the next 3 to 6 months.

Today is exactly 3 months (started Sept 26) for Finesteride. I started derma rolling 10/18 not sure when I started Rogaine, was about a month or so after fin. I also started the keto shampoo mid November.

Nice! You're seeing some awesome progress buddy. Keep it up 🙂

100% things are thickening up towards the front and crown. Will be interesting to see how things turn out in 12 months.

Thanks for keeping us up-to-date.

Save your money. It's the big three. Rogaine, Propecia, Nizoral. And if you have the budget, PRP... But that's only to thicken vellus hairs and prevent hair loss because it keeps hair in the growth phase.  Is not required though. The big three will do the trick. If you go the PRP route, make sure is five times concentrate.

No problem hoping someone can get somethign out of this if they are iffy about an HT. I am pretty happy about the progress so far.

Nothing in my hair but Rogaine foam. Cursed with a high forehead. Hoping the top fills in more over the next few months so I can maybe lower the hair line with the HT

 

This is 3 months growth.

@Shifty No reason man! All looks great. Just where I noticed the most improvement. Looks like you're seeing growth all over too. 

Just bookmarked this thread. Keep us posted buddy. A lot of guys considering meds would benefit from this. Maybe even throw up some video too. That would be cool.

Today is month 4 to the day that I started Finesteride while adding other products along the way. Hope these help! 

 

I think it is going very well. Got a haircut yesterday for first time in a long time, the owners had me write down what i was using they were fairly shocked. 

 

I will comb hair and use product and take pics with hair styled tomorrow

 

 

NO PRODUCT IN HAIR STRAIGHT OUT OF SHOWER WITH USE OF A BLOW DRYER
