    Hi I'm posting this mostly because this forum was a major positive influence on my decision to get back on Minoxidil.

    I'm 25 now, at 21 I started balding at the front very similar to my grandpa, and got on only Minoxidil with good results. After about 6 months I got lazy and stopped using, and my front hair became worse than ever from the ages 22-24.

    I didn't really care about my appearance for a long time but after a while I had enough of just wearing baseball caps all the time. So I decided to get on Minoxidil 5% and generic finasteride. That was Middle of March this year, and 4 months later my hairs grown great.

    In fact, after about 2 and a half months the hair just began suddenly growing through. It started as like a dark shadow at the front, and then grew rapidly.

    Now I have a generic crew cut but looking to grow it out over the next couple months.

    The photos tell a better story than I do.

    Thanks for reading

    That's insane regrowth. I think top 5%.

    Thanks to the replies. Here's a progress update 5 or 6 months after beginning finasteride and minoxidil. My hair's grown back apart from the temple area, though i am thinking this might just be my natural hairline?

    Not that i noticed

    So this is 7 months after minoxidil began, and 6 months after finasteride began

    The very front part still seems to be not as thick as the rest, and it also seems to grow considerably slower than the rest. This is despite only putting minoxidil on that front area.

    I am not sure what made the great results, but i would guess finasteride.

    The last photos at the worst of what it was earlier this year, im really ashamed that i let it get that bad without doing something

    Be careful. I've read many of these success threads. People that assume it's all finasteride and then drop minoxidil usually end up losing all of their hair.
