    Hey this is my regime after 6 months

    Month 1-4
    5% Minoxidil liquid twice daily
    1.25mg finasteride daily
    1.5mm Derma-Rolling on Mon & Thurs
    Low Level Laser Therapy every other day
    Biotin 10,000mcg daily
    Vitamin D 3,000IU da
    Pumpkin Seed Oil 1000 mg

    Month 5
    Introduced Nizoral 2% every Mon, Wed & Fri
    Introduced OGX Biotin & Collagen Shampoo every Tues, Thurs, Sat & Sun
    Reduced Derma-Rolling to once every Wed with a 1.5mm Dr.Pen microdneedling

    I experienced a massive shed from week 3 to week 11, it was very stressful as you're stuck in limbo a bit because you don't know if your hair is going to grow back. From week 11 onwards I experienced an okay amount of growth, it was mostly all the hairs that had shed intially returning I guess. So I now have tonnes of baby hairs at my temples, from all the reading I've been doing online it appears that the next 6 months is where I will see if this treatment is really working, can anyone relate to this?

    Congratulations on your current progress.

    Both Minoxodil and Finasteride tend to peak at the two year point so I’d wait until then before thinking about final results. I’d also caution against getting too excited just yet with the baby hairs (vellus) on the hairline. Whereas some may become terminal, thick healthy hairs, they can sometimes remain vellus.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. It is working.

    Just hitting the 9 month milestone. Regime has not changed since month 5. The last two days my hair has started to shed similary to when I first started my regime. Is this normal, should I be concerned? This has me worried as I thought I was making relative progress.
