I've been lurking on this forum for about 2 days and still have some questions and I would greatly appreciate if some of you would be able to help me in regards to them. I have currently been using minoxidil (kirkland, 5%) for a month and I just ordered a bottle of Regenepure shampoo to see how I like it, apparently it is very good from what I've read.
Now the thing is I've read that DHT blockers are essential to fight hairloss at the root of the problem. I don't want to take finasteride as I don't want to risk the side effects and I am worried it could seriously screw me up in the inside. My question essentially is, if I'm using Regenepure shampoo and minoxidil, and considering that Regenepure somewhat acts as a DHT blocker at the follicule-level (at least that's what I think from what I've read, am I wrong?), do I still need a DHT blocker such as finasteride to get good results in the long term?
In case the answer to this is yes, what are the alternatives? Like I said, I really don't want to risk finasteride, I've read about some topical stuff, such as Spiro, which I have no idea what it is to be honest, but I was certainly hoping you guys could help me figure out all of this!
Thanks a lot in advance, and a happy new year to everyone!
