I know it's way too early to be talking about how the regimen is helping, but I have noticed some differences. Since using Minoxidil 5% and Nizoral along with a thickening gel, I have noticed my thinning has been getting a little thicker than before. My hair looks thicker,, it's noticeable. Some parts of my scalp is starting to show less in bright lights. I'm also have a lot more blond vellus hairs growing on the hairline and have noticed them. I also use various shampoos like Nioxin and Nizoral on separate days. I do not want to get propecia because of side effects, so I'm thinking of Revivogen or Nano Shampoo to get the DHT out. Overall, I know I'll shed but this is good news for me. I'm less obsessing on it and getting back to finishing school. Life is good.
