1 year update - Success I just wanted to post my one year update. I started rogaine in 2012 since my hairline was receding at the temples. But I was never aware that I was losing hair on top until I took my first progress pic (I never had a chance to look at the top of my head ). I don't have pics of my hairline as of yet, but the recession at the temples has stopped and filing in VERY slowly (it's somewhat better than 1 year ago). I've been on rogaine for 14 months and finasteride/proscar for about 6 months. That spot on the back of my head is a cowlick and not a bald spot Regime: - Rogaine foam in the morning - 1ml Kirkland 5% minoxidil liquid at night - roughly 0.8mg of finasteride before bed (5mg proscar cut into sixths) I started off using Revita, but after reading the reviews I didn't plan on re-purchasing it again after I finished the bottle. Now I just wash my hair with water, and shampoo it three times a week (after the gym).
