    La photo de 2016 c'était au bout de + de 3 mois de minoxidil, donc le peu que j'avais perdu avait déjà repoussé. sur les 7-8 pulvérisation j'en faisais 2 sur le vertex

    Little update to say that i just buzzed my hair at the same length that i had at day one of my journey with finasteride in december.
    And i took the same photo at the same place with the same lighting and i can now say that finasteride has a good effect, not exeptionnal but it clearly works.

    On the left, day one finasteride and on the right, more than 4 month.
    It just looks healthier in my opinion
    My skin also looks better lol but that's because i'm back to serious sport since 2 month, and the sun is starting to kicking in where i live so i think it helps a lot :)

    still no sides

    I've noticed them since a little while. I hope this is a good sign.
    But i had a very bad normwood 0 originally. I've been at my best a norwood 1.5/2 i think ( when i look my youngest photos)

    How your regimen is going ?

    @CopeForLife and it's most probably going to stay that way. What I found with finasteride is that it's wonderful at maintaining and absolute garbage at regrowth expect in the lucky few. The one proven treatment that will give you insane regrowth is minoxidil but comes with the kick of stopping working when it chooses and sending you on a fast trip back to baseline.

    Agreed 200% on that.
    With minoxidil, before i use finasteride, i had a lot of regrowth but they would always go away.
    Minoxidil do the regrowth, finasteride and nizoral maintain them !

    finasteride also helps for the regrowth but it is way slower that minoxidil.


    A friend of mine did a PhD on all the treatments available for hair ( not only baldness, but all pathologies)

    For alopecia he had access to a lot of studies including some for minoxidil and finasteride.
    Minoxidil works for almost everyone for the regrowth and has no real sides compared to finasteride.

    For finasteride he had access to a study that took photos of multiple area on the scalp and they counted all the hair in it. The patient were taking only finasteride.
    The study took 5 years and year after year, there were more and more hair in those areas( front and back) .
    But the regrowth process is very very slow.

    Photo taken in my bathroom, two month comparison. I've got lights on my back but also in front of me.. So full light on my scalp lol
    Hair length is almost the same

    To add what i said before, i've looked again what was the results for finasteride.

    in multiple area of 5.1cm², here was the number of hair : year 1 : 126 , year 2 : 170 : year 3 : 183 : year 4 : 219, year 5 : 277
    42% of the patients are stabilized ( no loss, but no gain)
    48% got significant gains
    10% got worse.

    So you can see that finasteride is for 90% at least a stabilizer for your baldness. Bad luck if you are in the 10%
    Libido is affected for 1.8% of the patient but tend to disapear for most of them during the time. ( they are reversible two weeks after the treatment is stopped)

    Hi everyone, little update after one year on the big three.
    I've basically maintained all i had and gained in term of thickness. But where i didn't had hair anymore, there were no miracle. No regrowth on my temples.
    Still happy with the results though, when i was using minoxidil only, i was still balding, way slowly but still.
