    Can you draw a line on these pictures where your hairline is supposed to be if you weren't balding? I'm very curious.

    Stay on it. Add all of this which is my regimen and I promise you will get 100 percent of your hair back.

    Finasteride. No side effects at all.
    Minoxidil morning and night. Plus .5 dermapen for absorbtion every morning.

    I take Sawpalmetto(blocks dht), Pygeum(blocks dht), biotin. Coconut oil+cayenne pepper oil mixture every day or other day for 30 minutes or more.(cayenne blocks cannibinoids from marijuana use, which can cause hair loss. And it stimulates new hair growth).

    I use an inversion table about 15 to 30 minutes a day spread out in like 5 minute increments.

    I massage coconut oil with a brush on my scalp for around 10 minutes a day or other day. Brush or fingertips. Doesnt matter.
    Also I do fingernail rubbing around 10 minutes a day throughout the day.(stimulates the hair follicles).

    I had extremely thick hair and it got thinner throughout so ppl don't get when you tell em its thinning as they see a decent amount of hair but not what you are used to see which is much more density and less scalp showing.

    I couldn't see any difference. I think in all those months you maintained the hairs and I should say your are fine and finasteride is working IMO.

    Update, my hairline slowly is receding and getting worse, but slowly. It still bothers me, and I’m debating whether I should start minoxidil or not. I use tea tree shampoo but I’m certain that does nothing lol. Hard to see in the pics but I lose overall density and hairline recedes slowly. On finasteride for about 2 and a half years

    One more thing to add. I do believe I overthink/ think my situation is worse than it is becusse I have a big scar that goes into my hairline in the corners where thinning so it makes it look worse

    I would kill for your current hair tbh. Add in pumpkin seed oil and saw palmetto on the daily for month then get your hormones measured. In fact, you might want to get it measured now, go on the SP and PS and then get it measured again, you want to make sure the meds are having the desired effect. Add in ketacozonole ideally cream or at least the 2% shampoo. Don't panic your hair is awesome and you still have plenty of options left for treatment.

    Your hair looks the same. Keep on finasteride, dont stop.

    Finasteride is a hormonal medicine, it works by inhibiting the body from producing the hormone DHT (more specifically it inhibits the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase which is the necessary catalyst for the production of DHT in the body, this enzyme also catalyses other chemical production in the body besides just DHT including some neuro-steroids whose function is somewhat murky). If your DHT isn't going down low enough that's why you'd still see losses. Don't panic you have a shit ton of hair left. How old are you? If you're under 23 IMO you're too young for fina

    Who even prescribed you finasteride? Take better pics of hair from all angles.
