    Brogains Story 5 Years Of Hair Loss / 2 Years Of Hair Gain

    I have been noticing that my hair has been receeding since 2006. It has been a gradual process but as off September 2010 I have started to do somthing about it. The pictures I have included were not specially taken to show hairloss but were just holiday snaps which I have cropped. From this point on I will start to take more uniform photos which I will update on a two monthly basis.

    I have been taking propecia since September and using Nizoral every three days. I am going to start using Minoxidil at the end of the month (althogh I have yet to decided which one I will be using). I already think my hair has got thicker with 8 months of Propecia use but now I want to see If I can grow some back using Minoxidil.

    So feel free to follow my journey.

    Looks like you had a hair transplant in one of the pics.

    Hahaha really which picture?

    Perhaps someone gave me a hair transplant while I was asleep. Other than that I would probably have remembered it

    I thought Brogain was pretty creative too.

    Just a quick update as its been a while!

    I finally added Minoxidil to my regimen. I am using Rogaine Foam AM and Kirkland Liquid PM. I am only treating the affected area of my hairline as the rest of my hair remains very thick.

    I will be taking pictures every three weeks to monitor my progress with Minoxidil.

    Re: Brogain's Story - 6 Year Photos *UPDATED*

    Time for another update!

    Here is a series of pictures which I have been taking every three weeks over the past two months of using Minoxidil. I defiantly think that the Minoxidil is growing hair in my temples which I had previously lost. I have also included a set of photos for the past 6 years so you can see my hair loss history.

    I started using Minoxidil on the 21st July. On the 1st August photo you can see how the shedding has had an effect on the thickness of my hair. In the past six weeks I have noticed a real decrease in shedding and my hairline is getting thicker and easier to style. Let me know what you think guys!

    Im as happy as larry right now as it feels like I am making improvements.

    Re: Brogain's Story - 5 Year Photos

    If this is what Minoxidil can do in two months I can't wait to see what my hair is like at six months!

    They really should not put that it is only for the crown on the bottle. I understand this is because the crown was the only place it was tested in the clinical trials. I brought a bottle of Rogain three years ago and then returned it when I read it was not for use at the temples. How stupid I was!! I should never have waited to get on this stuff

    I would like to stop Propecia but feel it would be detrimental to my progress even though it has not done much in terms of regrowth.

    Re: Brogain's Story - 5 Year Photos

    Three months to the day since I started minoxidil to my temples and I couldn't be happier!

    My hairline is filling in nicely!!!

    I will continue taking pictures every three weeks over the next year to monitor progress.
