Well I posted some pics of my success at 9 months, now after about 11 and a half months I thought i'd add another update. Heres my pics... Before starting any treatments After about 9 months of Dutas 0.5 everyday and nizoral every other day About 3 months on minoxidil 5% +Retin A and MSM for about a month. The last 2 pics look a bit different in terms of quality as they were taken with a digi camera with the flash on. I was thinking these would look terrible as the webcam shots were less high quality and so maybe hide the state of my hair loss a bit, but i'm shocked at how good they look! my crown has filled in loads since starting minoxidil+retin A. My hair is soo thick compared to 11 or so months ago! Hope these pics help anyone thinking of starting on any of the treatments I am using. Still not much movement on the hairline, but theres some velus hairs there... hopefully they will turn terminal eventually, but if not i've achieved excellent results I think. Oh all these pics were taken when my hair was soaking wet and combed forward to try and seperate the hair as much as possible.
