    Mrfifs story (24 years old)

    Hi there.

    I'm no different from any other guys posting here. Unfortunately for me, I do suffer from MPH. Its a pain in the ass and money wise i've spent on ridiculous products to counter my hair loss. Finally today ive decided to start on Propecia.

    I have been using minoxidil though since Sept 2010. Doctor gave me 2%, then 3% and around may 2011 started using 5%. Yes ive seen results, hair growth on the temples but unfortunately again the effects wear off. Currently using minoxidil 5% but i find it not effective at all hence was advised to start on propecia for better results.

    Im trying to stay positive and optimistic and not think much about the side effects. I just want my hair to be normal.

    Re: Mrfifs story (24 years old)

    Hi guys. Today marks the first day taking propecia 1Mg. And I've applied Minox5% around my temples and crown. Going to have a haircut and shave all Cos my hair is a mess right now. I have some questions to enquire and hope to have some replies.

    Does it matter the dosage as I've noticed alot taking 1.25mg fin and I'm taking 1mg fin?
    How many times do I need to shampoo my hair daily? I use klorane shampoo and wash my hair twice a day, morning and evening.
    And what's the use for the niz shampoo?

    Help is very much appreciated.

    The brain fog is most likely to be psychological at this stage, IMO. know how you feel about cutting your hair, I cut lots off when I started fin, and currently wet-shaving my head every day (!) until I hit the 5-month mark, when I'll begin the grow out, hopefully with some results.

    Hows your progress so far? How long have you been on fin?

    Over three months. Too early to tell progress wise, but thankfully no side affects at all after the third week.

    Ok thanks mate. I wish you good luck! So far my libido is ok. Yesterday did some testing everything is fine. Just going to gym harder and not think too much about this.

    Oh ya. Minox is really itching my head. but I can still endure.

    Re: Mrfifs story (24 years old)

    A little update.

    10 days on Propecia (1mg fin) and minox 5%(morning and evening). Today i experience alot of shed during washing hair in the morning (about 20 strands). past few days my crown and temple been itching bad but i just refrain myself from scratching the head. Whats the Niz used for since its part of the Big 3?

    Is the itching indicating the new hair is growing?

    I do notice that the hairline is slightly better but it may just be my imagination. No sides so far. Hopefully.

    Re: Mrfifs story (24 years old)

    alot of shedding this morning during shower. i wash my hair with nizoral 2% and really alot of shedding (around 30-40 strands).

    I had couple of beers and cigarettes last night party. somehow regretted drinking. does drinking cause the shedding to increase because this one is the worst so far.

    please help me out with my questions.
