    Hi im a 22 year old guy and i am experiencing hairloss since i am 18.

    I am on the big 3 since april '11. This helped me a little bit in thickening up the thinning nw4 area. But it seems to me that i lost some ground on the frontal hairline.

    I use 1.25 mg of fin in the evening
    5% minox foam in the morning ( with dermaroller )
    Spectral dnc-n in the evening since 11'11
    Regenpure shampoo EOD

    I am looking for a good dht blocker for on the hairline. I was thinking about adding crinagen to my regimen. There seem to be many topical dht blocker out there. Which one is the best in your opinions ?

    I am also an avid smoker ( 15 cigs a day ). Could this be a serious cullprit in my hairloss ?

    Thanks in advance

    What specifically do you mean by "DHT blocker"? Do you mean a 5a-reductase inhibitor (examples are finasteride and dutasteride), or an antiandrogen (examples are spironolactone and RU58841)? :dunno:

    Bryan...he is new,you know that aren't you? so it's not very hard to understand that this mate,heard from somewhere that there is stuff like "DHT"... and dht blockers bla bla...what's the difference between inhibit 5 alfa reductase,and inhibit DHT ? Our aim is to stop hairloss,so you see that he is already taking finasteride..so what does it tell you ?

    Sounds like you're the LAST person I should have asked! :)

    It doesn't tell me anything, which is why I asked. What does it tell YOU?

    Yes you should try to cut back on smoking. I believe that anything that isnt good for your body, generally wont be good for your hair. I know most people on here believe that hairloss is 100% genetic. I do feel it is largely due to genetics, but I feel that around 20-30% is based on our life style (foods we eat, how we deal with stress, etc etc). Even if it doesnt help your hair it will help your health. Thats my two cents.

    It is pointless. Nowadays Bryan rather points out on odds and ends rather than helping out a guy with an obvious question.

    Indeed. The guy is obviously a tomb of hair loss knowledge, but rather than seriously trying to help the guy he tries to look smart by asking questions the guy ain't going to understand rather than pointing out the differences between the different approaches. Its a true shame.

    I gave specific examples of the kinds of drugs I was talking about, and then asked other people if anybody else had any idea what he meant; and STILL nobody else had any idea about that! :laugh:

    Better get used to what I asked, because that's fairly likely to continue in the future.

    What i basicly need is a product which keeps my excisting hair.

    Im already on fin for almost 11 months, i have only see very little regrow and my hairloss is pretty agressive (lost 60-70% of the hair in nw4 region in the last 2 years.)

    so i am looking for a topical dht inhibitor/androgen blocker. Whatever works best. i am continuing the fin aswell.

    i have looked up some info on the net and i need to choose between these:

    - Folligen
    - Revivogen
    - Tricomin
    - Spiro S5 cream
    - Crinagen

    which one gives the best dht-block ?

    I think it's fairly obvious he means a topical anti-androgen. It's possible to be mistaken in this assumption, however, given the way people who don't understand the process ask questions on this forum, it's a very reasonable assumption to make.

    Stop nitpicking, Bryan, good grief. You're worse than the 19 year old know it alls in this thread ;)

    N1, you can try also topical Dut. Buy an extra bottle os minox and add aroun 12 capsles of Avodart in to it, since you already use oral fin you can use the topical dut every second day, and maybe only on the hair line to avoid sides.. it´s a strong topical, I belive from what I´ve been reading better than spiro or revivogen, just watch for sides because dut gets to your body system throw skin very well, thats also why people are using it topical.
