    Steroids and hairloss

    My friend, who I am telling not to take steroids is not listening to me. He has a full head of hair and has no idea what it feels like to be in our position. He took a cycle of steroids and noticed hair shedding. He did look a little thinner than usual...my question is...once he gets off the cycle of steroids...would his hair grow back to normal or would he have accelerated his mpb? He was asking me if he could use some of my proscar to help with the hairloss...is that possible?

    I have an uncle who went for the body building thing in a big way (steroids included) I haven't seen him in a while (3 or 4 years) but my brother says he is bald as a coot! And this is from having a reasonable head of hair.

    This is purely anecdotal I realise, and proves little but I thought I would throw it in.

    I would never, EVER trade my full head of hair for a muscular body.

    Never.

    Working out and bulding your muscle is good for the body and it not make you loss hair. Steriods will make you loss your hair. I don't know if it will grow back if you stop using it. I think it speeds up the hair loss problem if you have one.

    I'm the perfect example for this topic since my hairloss was triggered from steroid use about 11 years ago.....Go look at my pics there's a before hairloss picture there.
    Steroids has totally ****ed up my entire life. Not just becuase of hair either. I had and still have ocasioal bouts with depression, had a bunch of joint problems, started having panic attacks which have pretty much gone away in the last year or two.
    I never had any of these problems before I took steriods.

    If there was one thing I could change in my life, It would be to have never taken steriods.

    I still remember thinking to myself when I bought them that the chances of anything bad happening are pretty slim...Boy was I wrong. After talking with a few other people who've taken them it's pretty common for things to go wrong.
    Regimen:
    1mg Finasteride/day
    5% minox 2x/day
    Tricomin 1x/day
    Nizoral 2-3x/week
    Salon quality shampoos and conditioners
