Switching my regimen to : Finasteride 1mg ED Polaris lab NR 10 - Minoxidil 16% - 0,1% topical finasteride And other indegrients. Twice Daily 0,5ml And currently added: Alpicort E !!!! (Prednisolonum, Estradioli benzoas, Acidum salicylicum) Once daily! Added Alpicort cause i really belive estradiol will help regrow+maintain my destroyed Temples with minox16% i think now must be legacy! PLZ NW0 someday. < GOAL Currently NW1.5 ( Hairline 85% full / Temples : 40% - really destroyed) 3. PHOTOS with my current status ATTENTION : Dumb faces. Hairs Pulled back. View attachment 43898 And how i am Styling it sometimes hehe. View attachment 43901 View attachment 43902 View attachment 43901 View attachment 43899 Hi! Update 2019 July 9 Mission Failed Sir! I went bald, regimen couldn't hold up with aggressive hair loss. I diffussed over the top to NW5. Hairline destroyed to NW3. finasteride stopped working even at 2.5mg every day, minoxidil stopped working about one year ago. Was on RU 5% about 3 months at it did sh*t, estradiol, ketoconazole, dermarolling everything helped to slow thing down but faith is faith and destiny is destiny. Still have about 30~40 % density over the top and i failed to be candidate for transplant also. Was fun, i dont regret anything. Still considering dutasteride but i dont know if its worth to play with, besides the fact i never had any sides from my regimen. Conclusion? Eh, wont demotivate anyone but lets be real. If you start to bald at age 17 you probably wont win it with non-invasive treatmens like finasteride and minoxidil. I accepted myself as a bald. Posting photo. Good luck to all! =========UPDATE ========= January 11 2020 So yeah, lets make it quick cause i am very lazy This how you will look, when you're balding and your hairloss is going on July 2019 NW3 full reecession went on + diffusse all over the top to NW5 ( finasteride stopped working bla bla) I was awfuly looking subhuman so i decided to go bald and shave it off so i looked like this : Pretty badass tho! But then, 2 months after i jumped on dutasteride+RU combo with minoxidil and dermaroller. And there are pictures from today. January 11 2020 after few months on dutasteride+RU combo ENJOY =) By the way, i am happy for 100+ people which i helped ( probably more i dont count) that i could help to save their teenage times with full head of hair and self-confidence. I am doing this for young people who had same/similar/worse situation than me. All these messages on facebook/instagram/PM on HairLossTalk.com. They mean a lot for me and for your information you were also motivating me to doing this! <3 I will never let you down boys. And no, i couldn't write this in lower size font. f*** off - for them who want to catch it or to note, it means a lot for me.
