    Hi , im 35 . First , English is not my first language so , go easy on me .
    I noticied the first time that i was sheeding a little last summer(2018) , when i was styling
    my hair with gel with my hand like always . I said to my girlfriend and she say " its normal , your hair will regrow " and i have a head full of hair so i didn't mind . All my life i had a lot of hair so , i was not worry about that .

    Then we broke up me and my girlfriend in march this year (2019) . I was in bad shape after that , a lot of stress and depressed during the couple of weeks later . Well , a emotional shock i would say ... I think you all know what i talking about . Even in march , i didn't see coming if i was losing more hair then normal . Then i noticed in late of April , i was losing my hair like 100 hairs a day during my shampoo. I looked my hair and i saw my head behind and it was a other shock , i really lose my hair . Now im feeling better , no stress , going on with my life …

    But now , since i saw my hair , i can say its alopecia , plus a emotional shock .
    So i found this forum maybe 1 month ago and i was searching for treatment for alopecia.
    I will not stay on my ass and let my hair goes away like that without doing anything !
    So i made a decision with everything i have read and learn in the thread of the forum .

    Its been 16 days for me on finasteride .
    I started the 21 May 2019 . Heres my regimen for now .

    Nizoral 2% (2-3x) week
    1mg Finasteride / day

    I feel im doing something to help my cause and stop the hairloss . I know theres other treatment like minoxidil with dermaroller , but im not ready for now to jump on this one .
    Im scared of more sheeding , i count my hairloss every day to see if i lose more or less.
    Yea i count it , the best i can and i wrote it down on paper . Best day , i can lose 25 hairs , and worse 100 hairs when i shampoo .

    I have no sides effect at the moment and i hope that will continue like that .
    I still lose my hair every day , i know it can take 6 months to working .
    I will share my result here on this thread in the future .
    Sorry for the long text .

    A lot of people have a similar story. Stress started the hair loss. It is mostly true, but when it is time to start losing hair, you will lose faster with stress.
    You have a good thing going in that you are older (35). For the most part the older you are, the slower the hair loss.
    Stay on finasteride for at least 8 months. I would add minoxidil as well, even if once a day.

    Good luck with that man, and sorry about your girlfriend. Going through something similar and planning on fighting hair loss with all I have.
