As much as I respect your educated opnions on all things concerned with hairloss and video games, I feel that the offset of growth you mention time and again isn't entirely accurate for a lot of users of Minoxidil. I think it forces follicles to keep growing hair and stops the follicles resting.
Taug, next time u show us some pics, CRACK A SMILE! It can't be too hard!!
Hair looks fine dry, its amazing what wet hair and flash can do. Especially on light coloured hair, the flash basically penetrates through the hair as it's so low in pigmentation.
Stick to your current treatments for at least a year. I didn't really see any progress until 2 years in really.
The people who chop and change their treatments are the people who never get results. Remember that.
