I get it. Yes 41. ZERO thinning though in 39 years zero thinning. 2 years... less than half density and constant shed.
Bro, you just don't get it. It is very rare for men to keep the same density they had in their 30's in their 40's and certainly much harder in their 50's. Just take finasteride and use minoxidil twice per day and wait it out for 2 years like I did and have faith in your treatments. Keep your thyroid under control. You still will have better hair than I did when I first started and where I am now. You got dense hair still. Seriously, you have BDD. If you can convince any guy on here who has BDD that your hair looks bad, let me know.
It's really hard to be sympathetic when you have better hair at 41 than I do at 20, please kindly gtfo
I get it and there is no BDD. I try to empathize with everyone on here, each situation is different and I don’t get how this is some sort of competition.
I know I’m still in good shape and I am just trying like everyone that ended up here to save what I have and learn from the experiences of others.
I’m trying RU and going to give people that might be interested an example of one persons experience because there aren’t many. If I can save people some time and money with insight what’s the harm.
I will eventually get on Finasteride but wanted to rule out a no systemic option. For all I know I have baby powder from Anagen.
Sorry mate but your hair looks amazing! What I would do for that. And go for it with the RU. I have never been on propecia (people will say why didn’t you do that first, I just never will) But I got on cb 0301 about a year ago, early stages I thought this is doing the trick but after a few months it decreased and got me worrying again. I bought up the courage to add some ru - tiny does and the last few months I’ve seen a huge change in just overall colour health and shedding of hair. Now I take this very seriously so last two weeks I’ve been on 30mg ru a week max! I no sounds like not enough. But the last week I’ve felt that my chest has swollen up a lot... looks almost like been working out heaps. Last couple of days little bit of tingaling in my nipples and there almost always erect. Now it’s got me scared how could I be getting gyno with such little amounts!??! I no this is your post mate. But just had to get this of my chest (pun not intended) thanks guys. By the way I won’t be using the ru again until this goes down. Back to cb for me
Thanks for the info. Just trying to get a solid RU reference out there. Zero sides so far and about 50mg/day. Leap of Faith that the Anagen product is legit.
No worries and I hope it works out for you! Zero sides is a bonus just be careful tho. I noticed sore eyes which seems very common! Def no libido issues and heart felt fine. Just this feeling of on coming gyno which surely will disappear! Would love some comments on any experiences like this!? Bluecyclone maybe cb would be good for you considering the condition of your hair at your age. Which I find very very good!
tfw this guy has my current hair at 41
Not for long man. Shedding and thinning like crazy. I know there still a lot of hair but density is about 30 of what it was 2 years ago. Nothing is slowing down the process.
You have better hair at 41 than most posters here have in their early 20s lol.
I usually don’t take photos of the daily morning nightmare but this is what my sink looks like after a careful wet brushing.
I’m also worrying about possible gyno after a month on RU.
you have perfect hair!
I would feel concerned too if my hair shed that much after just combing it.
Thanks for the sympathy. I don’t know what to do and the ‘safe’ trial RU in regard to sides already has me concerned about sides. I think Finasteride would be a quick start & forced stop.
Clear case of BDD
dude you can have that opinion but this about ‘hairloss’ it doesn’t matter how it compares. I got lucky it started late but it’s happeing and sucks. I’m just trying to get info from others going through it in the twenties, thirties, forties... my hair is paper thin compared to a year ago and everyday I’m covered in hair.
Each refining I try seems to make it worse.
Take the BDD remarks with a grain of salt. This whole forum is subjective nonsense and everyone has differing levels of "hair satisfaction". I'm only 24 but my density might honestly be 25% of yours with a mostly intact hairline as well. Some will be jealous and shout BDD, some will sympathize with your situation. I also had very aggressive shedding when the bulk of my hair fell out. I'm talking clumps of hair would fall out and I quickly lost 75% of my density in just a year. Oddly enough it's maintained at this shitty density so I'm thankful that I'm not totally bald...yet. I noticed a dramatic reduction in shedding after just a month on finasteride. Now I lose maybe 1-5 hairs in the shower and never notice any on my pillow anymore. Good luck my friend, hopefully your situation will level out as mine did before you end up a chrome dome. I'm sure it will.
I’m really confused about the diffuse loss versus the receding hairlines. I definitely have a pattern but it’s strange in addition to even overall thinning.
I have low DHT decent Test but I noticed a big test drop from a month before and 4 months after the loss started (890) down to (580) I have stayed about there. I wonder if actually upping testosterone and maybe lower estrogen could make a difference.
I had to pause RU after slight gyno on one side and that’s not even supposed to systemic. I think oral Finasteride is a guarantee for sides.
My vertex is all but a thin layer of poor quality hair, long so it hides a lot. The parts grow everyday.
