hey guyz.

I just opened this thread to ask about your experiences with topical finasteride. I'm just using topical finasteride 0.1% dissolved in trichosol with minoxidil 5%. It seems to give me benefits in reducing hair loss, while i dont have side effects. But its a bit messy for my hair, as the hair gets greasy when i apply it on my scalp. I was thinking to buy pure finasteride powder from local pharmacy and mix it with minoxidil 5% (60 ml). So i would put 60 mg of pure finasteride powder into the minoxidil solution and mix it, so i would have a mix of finasteride 0.1% and minoxidil 5% .

What do you think would be the best concentration and vehicle to deliver the finasteride and minoxidil into my hair folicles? Trichosol or the normal vehicle of minoxidil solutions (purified water, alcohol and propylene glyocol) ? Also did anyone of you have good results with topical finasteride? What are your experiences with topical finasteride? How would you compare topical finasteride with oral finasteride in temrs of results?

If it works, don't f*** it. Simple use it at night, and wash your hair on morning, so simple like that.

i use it at night, but i also use topik in the morning. So if i wash my hair in the morning and then apply topik hair fibers, then i should wash my hair again at night. So i should wash my hair 2 times per day and its a bit annoying. Thats why i'm looking for a different topical finasteride vehicle, that does not make my hair greasy.

That’s why I’m going for a FUE.. sick of hair fibres and washing the hair out of my head

The problem is not finasteride, it is minoxidil that is hard to disolve.

Any "wallmart " minoxidil lotion will leave you hair looking like sh*t next day. They all have high PG
Regaine-rogaine has more PG than other minoxidil solutions, and it takes many hours to dry. I found minoxidil solution with finasteride from Minoxidilmax which says it has low amount of PG, so it should dry fast and not make the hair greasy.

I’ll prob go with Asuman..They produce good results on a Turkish forum, doesn’t charge an arm and a leg too. There’s Hair Of Istanbul but they are roughly £3k Sterling

You can go to Dr Resul Yaman on turkey, he gives decent results for 1 euro per graft or maybe Dr Cinik from 2000 to 3000 euros all inclusive. Otherwise you could choose Asmed, HLC, Pekiner, Keser but they are more expensive

$89 for topi duta? Bit steep
They give 10% discount to forum members when you buy 3 bottles, I pay that price for Topical Finasteride with added 15% Minoxidil and other additives. I guess for me it’s cheaper than using the United Kingdom clinics as they charge so much more money for just 12.5% Minoxidil.......

so why then pay more for the same product?

I get discount because I buy 3 bottles, plus I have the anti androgens added with other additives which are different. I have used the same mixture over the years from other compound pharmacies that MinoxidilMax do not add. There is also the concern as I buy from a LEGIT compound pharmacy with prescription that’s been lab tested and safe.

I hope this answers your questions......
