I also highly recommend you at least TRY Finasteride..
did you ever end up trying spiro?
I am on the same regime as you (minox+niz) and i am thinking about adding spiro as well as a precaution.
fin is a big no no for me as well.
Impressive results. I'd also like to point out that this is an ideal example of the best way to take pictures tracking progress (e.g. short hair, combed forward, top down view, before next to after). Looks great, keep it up.

well, i have been on the same regimen (min+niz) for about 2 months now and absolutely nothing has happened. Only change was my receded temples got visibly worse and my face seems fuller.
Lucky for you, I would be thrilled just to have one third of your results.
It's interesting to see a case of minox only. I'm impressed how much you grew in the first six months.
I wonder if the impressive regrowth we see in all these fin + minox success stories is from minox mostly. And then perhaps the fin just keeps it from getting worse.
If Hoppi said it then it must be true.
Hello everybody. I am back to report updates to my story.
Well, when my hair started to recede, I kept minox and ketonkonazol and tried everything just to bring it back again. I added spiro, then minox 6% and nothing worked.
After that i finnaly decided to try fin.
Fin did worked but just to slow my hairloss. Ever since then it is still falling but slowly.
Now i am seriously thinking about hair transplantation.
Please any advice, or maybe some new treatment would be appreciated.
Man, I feel sad for you. I am now 3 months into in minox and nizoral regime and its working great. The difference between you and I is I'm now taking finasteride for half a months (no side effects, knock on wood). It's the fear mongering people who cause many people like you who had a chance to save their hair not to by not taking finasteride,
As for advice, you have RU which is like finasteride which I don't think would make a difference, you have Neogenic by L'oreal coming out I think next month or two and supposedly increases hair growth by 30 percent but very expensive, 100 euros per month. Lastly, we will most likely have a great treatment involving PGD2 within the next 2 years and this could have a huge effect on hairloss.
As you can see, the future is good for hair loss sufferers, you can check out my story here http://www.hairlosstalk.com/interact...hs-and-3-weeks. I hope the finasteride helps me.
My hair looks very close to your baseline picture, its been like that for 4 years or so. Only use Nizoral once week for past 4 years.
Was thinking of trying Minox foam but now scared it might accelerate my hairloss after the growth period.
Also were you applying minox on temples only?
