    None. You could try a decent topical but none of them are as proven as finasteride. Maybe try revivogen, topical spiro, or one of the many others. Lots of threads if you search on other topicals you could try.

    I have never read anyone having success with Revivogen. Ever. It has a nice smelling shampoo, and that's about it. Don't waste your money.

    If your goal is to slow down/stop your hair loss, and maintain what you presently have, then there may be some natural supplements to help you. As for regrowing a bunch of new hair, I think that it's highly unlikely that herbs, vitamins, and minerals will be able to do this for you for an extended period of time, unless, that is, you are in the early stages of hair loss.

    If fin is not agreeing with u, you don't necessarily need to go natural, unless this is your prime purpose. Look into topicals, less side effects. SuperZIX is good and cheap, also RU, azelaic acid, etc could be options.

    Natural alternative medicines are generally a bad idea. Natural does not imply safer. If fin won't work for you, then it's very doubtful saw palmetto will either. See how good minox works, or perhaps a lower dosage of fin? I don't wanna mess with either as I'm only 19 but they're the best two options in terms of meds.

    I think there are plenty of products that could "work". Nothing out there is doing wonders for the vast majority of MPB sufferers..even the "FDA approved". Even if I were using those I'd be using other things along with them.

    While I do think that an HT is a viable option, one still will have to maintain the rest of his hair, especially with less than 3000 grafts. The hair loss battle continues for you too.

    There is a reason why most hair loss forums today have a "natural section." It is because 1) these FDA approved products have caused side effects, irreversible in some cases 2) they were ineffective. And forum members want to explore other options available to them.

    Herbs, vitamins, and minerals (when taken as recommended) are generally far less dangerous than that which has been approved by the government.

    They're also far, far, far less effective.

    it is not your lack of drink, but muscles or face thats the reason. The only reason they'd want you to drink is so you focus on that and dont hit on them I don't even go to partys, at least not till I get more muscle on my arms.

    At least one year on Fabao 101D (Chinese stuff) and about 18 months on revivogen along with saw palmetto. The end result less hair on my head and a reduced bank balance.
    Then you didn't do your homework, Ben. Had you participated in other forums, and educated yourself with more effective natural treatments, you would have never gotten yourself mixed up with Revivogen, or Fabao, for that matter:

    "Their website cites a double-blind clinical study that states a 189% increase in mature hair count in one subject. Other studies in Europe, Japan, and China are listed. I could find no published U.S, Chinese, Japanese, European or any clinical studies.

    They also claim to have won seven international awards. Pictures of the awards are shown on the website as proof. I am unable to verify that these awards are valid.

    Fabao claims that the ingredients are only effective when manufactured according to their own special process to keep the mixture stable. Little is said about this process. Many companies make similar claims about specialized processing. I am unconvinced.

    The price is higher than is justified in my opinion. Ranging anywhere from $40 to $115, your wallet will definitely take a hit if you buy this.

    There is an entire page on their site dedicated to testimonials. As you know, I am always skeptical of stories. No proof is offered to back of their amazing claims.
    "

    Saw palmetto is not very effective by itself. It is usually combined with others to inhibit DHT. But actually our focus should be on increasing circulation and reducing inflammation, naturally.
