I'll be 28 this summer and I've been losing hair since I was about 16. I started using minox at 19 and got great results, but quit when I was 22. My hair loss worsened so I got back on minox at around 23.5, but also threw finasteride into the mix. I got some results, but at that point, I guess the hair loss was more advanced and I didn't see the same results I saw in my earlier 20s, I pretty much stabilized around Norwood 2 with thinning in the Norwood 3 region. But I kept using the minox religiously and threw in copper pepptides in the foolish hope of returning to a strong Norwood 2 or even 1.5.
So at this point I'm a Norwood 2 to 2.5 with pretty heavy thinning in the Norwood 3 region, I'm pretty sure I'd be advanced Norwood 3 if not for treatments. In any event, I've accepted the fact that the minox and fin are only helping me maintain at this point and nothing short of a HT will bring back lost hair. So now, I'm thiking of switching to minox once a day. I've heard a lot of long term minox users have switched to once a day without any adverse effects. Also, I've gotten some bags under my eyes and my face is a little bloated. I've been using minox for almost 9 straight years so it's impossible to know whether this is due to age or if it's due to minox, in any event, I'd lke to cut back on putting chemicals in my body after such a long time.
So please! Share your stories of switching from twice a day minox application to once a day.
