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 .
