    When you apply the foam how do you do it and how much roughly?

    Do you do it on dry hair?

    I target my crown and templates, I have to do maybe 3 squirts of it to feel like I put something towards my hair

    Are you planning on using finasteride for a lifetime? If you actually stop taking it I would be interested to know if your balding returns. I really like finasteride results but I'm so scared about it's side effects. My father became sterile and impotent.

    Can't get over your results- I'm guna give this stuff a shot before I consider fue. I'm just taking finasteride at the moment and not noticing much 7 months in so I'm going to try this foam out too. It's showing out of stock though? Is the one you buy out of stock...

    Just ordered :) worth a go. Mate did you apply this just to thinning areas or all over? Only thing I'd find annoying is applying it before styling/putting wax in my hair in the morning. Your before photos are very similar what mine is now but not quite as thin at back and a little less advanced on front

    I apply to my crown and hairline where my hair was thinning and receding. The morning is the worst but I tend to wet my hair then style it with mouse and whatever then just apply the foam. I don' go overboard with gel or wax anymore, I use volume powder instead so it's not messy.

    I hope not to use it long term as I don't want to mess about with prostate problems or masking a problem by taking the stuff when older. The hair I gained will fall out and go back to what it was or worse so im ready for that when i do stop although by then hopefully I have enough saved for a transplant.

    I'm not sterile thankfully and it's had no effect on my sex life whatsoever.

    I cannot get over those results Scottio- you must be so pleased! Your hairline looks like its back to normal. If I get any hairline back, I will be extremely pleased. Like you, I had a hair transplant on my mind and might hold it off for the future depending on if I see any results from this

    Well since its used to shrink enlarged prostates it can mask problems that would flag up earlier meaning a more advanced problem when you catch it if on the medication.

    Thanks, I wanted share it because I didn't believe the possitive things I saw before I started so wanted people to know it can work given time. I know everyone has different experiences but hopefully you will see some results.

    firstly congrats on the success, i'm a similar age to you so hope i get the same results. I have two questions for you:

    1. have you seen your shedding reduce over time with the ongoing minoxidil use or do you think it will remain the same as long as you use it?

    2. if you are based in the uk where do you get your finasteride from?

    My shedding was hardly noticeable for a while but after 7 months it's been pretty constant and heavy, I have no idea why after I didn't see much to begin with.

    I get my finasteride from med express which is a verified online pharmacy from UK.

    that's the thing...I've been reading and thinking are these posts actually real as it seems too good to be true. Keep the posts up mate as I always see people disappear which is probably a good sign as they are no longer worrying about losing their hair
