    [​IMG]Hi, im Michał im from Poland. Im 19 teenager and i started to get slowly balding on sides at 17 my hair construction is REALLY rare and ultra THIN so it was starting really noticable!. Im using Minoxidil 5% liquid brand called Loxon 5% with include only minoxidil and alcohol.

    What i did: I throw every chemics shampoos to the bin, and i am washing my hairs only by water and natural birch shampoo ( weekly : 5x H2O only / 2x natural shampoo )

    minoxidil Dose : 0.5ml daily (2 spray clicks morning / 2 night ) 1ml = 10 bursts

    === UPDATE === 17.02.16

    Added 0,7 mg of finasteride EOD 05.02.16 / No side effects after 12 days + A bit increased libido. Continous to EOD + No single hair fallin off in the shower !!!


    Current Regimen : Kirkland Foam 1/2x Daily finasteride 0,7mg EOD.

    Current Hairline and haircut PIXECT-20160205081003gg.jpg < Couldn't get more visible photo due to really weak brightness in my room!


    ===== UPDATE ===== 1.03.16

    One day, i had really noticable Ballz ache, but i dont think so its from finasteride... I did not noticed anything wrong. Libido Ok, Im jumping 0.7mg EVERY DAY at the moment.. If i will notice a something with lower sex drive/libido. I will try to add L-arginine to regimen. To figure out how it gonna work, and also i will reduce finasteride again to EOD.

    05.03.16 < Photo update > + 1 month on finasteride. NOTICE = no sides

    /1.Blood tests on finasteride.
    /2.Regimen status.
    /3.Photos

    Like as i said, i got my blood papers. So i am sharing it with you. Yeah, its not before after. But i didnt even know ill do someday blood tests being on finasteride. Enjoy.

    1. BLOOD TESTS ON 8 MONTHS BEING WITH FINASTERIDE

    View attachment 43897 = DHT still at norm range :D


    2. 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! :D

    PLZ NW0 someday. < GOAL


    Currently NW1.5 ( Hairline 85% full / Temples : 40% - really destroyed)

    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 shit, 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. :rolleyes:

    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!

    Bro trust me when I say this. Even I had superb results like these with minoxidil. Maybe better. But losing all gains after the 8th month. Not sure if its a shed or it lost its effectiveness. Irrespective of that I have started Finasteride now and would advice you to do the same.
    The results of the combo are terrific. And besides, if you wanna keep your hair for long term, jump on finasteride ASAP.

    Nice one man, but as the guy above said, finasteride should be your first port of call with any modern anti-male pattern baldness regime, minoxidil is a good addition of course but if you can maintain or even gain with just finasteride alone then I wouldn't even bother with the minoxidil regime at all.

    yes! It cost really cheap! 13 Euros calculated by values.


    Hey, rather i will look into RU58841 topical solution. It is good idea? Im bit afraid of finasteride. And yes, im really into RU option than finasteride. There is many finasteride users but regarding RU users we can easly say that small amount of people experiencing it but fascinating fact is that ru seems really effective and comparing to finasteride there is LESS side effects, i think i really would to try RU then. Any opinions?

    The odds of you getting any sides from finasteride is extremely low. There is countless of studies on finasteride, short-term and long-term, they all report the same thing - 2% chance of getting side effects with the placebo-group reporting almost the same numbers. Millions of men are on it and they're not on forums talking about how sides is effecting them.

    Talk to your doctor about it.

    Anti Androgens seems are really expensive if we mention all of anti mbp stuff in our inventory = / Propecia seems costs mountains of gold lol
    PS. I Have question... My hair construction is super thin and rare, is there any option to make them more " bigger " ? Any shampoos or maybe they need vitamins?

    That's not true at all. finasteride isnt "TOTALLY SAFE" it affects everyone differently. When you're decreasing important hormones problems occur!

    What is Adenosine? why i would put it to my regimen? :) Can you explain? and aslo Nizoral, what indgredients they got that migh give me thicker hair or atleast look them a little bit fat.


    Another question : from which side baldness came from? My gradpa from mom side is fully bald at 83. From father side R.I.P 80 and he had hairs like Norwood 3.5 / 4

    You should really look into getting some generic Finasteride. You probably won't keep those great results long without some sort of anti-androgen.

    =========================== UPDATE =============================


    Lost some gains at frontal sides, but not much.
    :wacko:

    Looking for adding 0,5mg finasteride per day or 0,17mg dutasteride per one week.

    Any suggestions? dutasteride half-life is about 240~~ hours. Fins about 24h or less.

    According to this :

    Post your ideas there! :) Happy new year! :pint:
