My story begins in my late 30's when I noticed my hair thinning on top. Started looking for solutions right away. Used rogain. Then started taking propecia. By this time, my hair loss was noticable. Just a small area, but noticable. And being noticable was big to me. May not have been a big deal to anybody else, but it was a big deal to me! I wish that I wasn't so insecure about this, but I am, damn it!
