    Sydney's Story - (21) - UPDATED PICs PG 5

    Hello everyone. I'm glad I found this site.

    I've been dealing with hairloss since 17, and dealing with being hairy since...a really young age. I had a mustache in early 6th grade, and I started grrowing ample amounts of body hair around 13.

    Now I'm 21. I'm a mess. I just recently recovered from having abysmal acne, which is now not as bad. But a few years back I started noticing my hairloss. I just said "no way! Not possible" because my dad didn't start balding till his late 30s and my mom has a full head of hair.

    But alas, my hair is only getting worse and worse. My hairline recceeds daily it seems. My hair is so thin in the front. I hate it and it's depressing as heck. I just recently turned 21 and had a bday party and looking at the pics from that night I realized I need to do somethinng fast.

    It has made me depressed for the past two years. All the comments, looks and everything. It's like the same stares I'd get for my acne back in the day...

    So I read up on this forum and saw succcess stories and wow. I'm amazed at the amazing results people have.

    I just bought some fincar and it should be here in ten days. I'm going to do the big 3. I'll post update pictures monthly, and later I'll post pics of my hair now.

    Wish me luck!




    EDIT


    FEB 23 2010.


    Today is the big day. The fincar came in, and I just the tablets into four pieces. I started minox/niz a few days ago. But today I'm popping my first pill. I'm scared to death.

    But its worth it. I've been so depressed. Havent been able to sleep well because of this. Havent been able to look people in the eyes. I've been wearing a beanie every day just to hide my hairloss. This is the worst thing to happen next to my crazy bouts of acne.

    I cut off most contact with people. I deleted my facebook, and changed privacy settings on AIM to avoid talking to certain people. I need to be alone for this. Well, I'd like the support of the board members here, but thats about it.

    I'm seriously hoping by August/September my hair becomes fuller. Here are some pics....I'll update with pics bi monthly.

    And I'll definitely respond with any sides I get from this as I know people want to hear about that before taking the drug. I'll also let you know how my mood is effect, and my libido. Just so you know, at the moment I'm very depressed and my sex drive is high. Very very high. I work out 5 days a week as well.


    Just so everyone knows, I'm not too concerned with temple regrowth. I'm okay with a mature hairline. My issue is simply thickness. Thats all I want back. Just last week a girl put her hands through my hair and I quickly hit her hand away. Damn shameful.


    Here are some pics.

    Theoretically finasteride will help you with both your problems.

    Which problems would it fix? Hairloss and acne or hairloss and body hair?


    Also, here are some pictures.


    These pictures are from when I'm 19/20. I just turned 21 last week.







    Can't wait to start , and hopefully see some progress before September...

    Seems that you still have a good chance of regrowth. The big 3 has helped many here, as the topics attest, so hopefully it'll work for you Just keep an eye out when your hair starts to shed. That's where your hair falls out a lot more, yet it means that you should expect a new wave of hairs. Then again some people don't even experience this.

    Btw where did you buy your Fincar from?

    Hey, I purchased my fincar from inhousepharmacy! I have not received it yet, and when it does come in I will take pictures of my hairline and all that.

    hair loss and body hair. As far as I know DHT causes hair loss on head(terminal hair->vellus hair) and growth of body hair (vellus hair -> terminal hair)

    I hope that I'm right

    Hey everyone. I just purchased loreal 2 in 1 Vive shampoo and conditioner Daily thickening. Before I actually use it though, is it safe to use and does it yield and
    positive results?

    I've read on this forum that a number of guys use it and seem to recommend it.

    Btw you're in Sydney right? Where did you buy the shampoo from because i've looked in all the pharmacies, supermarkets, priceline, and i can't find the thickening shampoo :\ the only thickening shampoo i saw is by some john freida guy and i don't know about him.

    I actually read that too, but I saw that they were talking about the shampoo specifically, not including the conditioner. I'm hoping it's not counter productive....

    As for where I'm located...I'm actually in new York. Sydney losstarot is from a video game...haha!

    Oh yeah specifically I heard sodium laureth sulfate causes hair loss. Any comments on that? Really don't want to lose any more hair
