Hi, I just want to share my story. My hairloss was a combination of a receding hairline and diffuse thinning on top. My crown was completely unaffected. I started the big three 9 months ago. I am 9 months into treatment (9 months finasteride and 7 months minoxidil) These are baseline pictures 1 month into finasteride (was too lazy to take them when I started): As you can see, I was quite thin on top and both tempels were receding. These were pictures taken today: My hair is a lot thicker on top and the birth mark on my left temple is not even visible anymore due to the regrowth. My temples have grown a lot of smaller hairs which are not that thick, and the middle of my hairline has also gone down 1 cm with a lot of baby hairs. Even with these thin hairs in the hairline, it really helps a lot. I almost have my NW1 back. To sum everything up, I am really satisfied with my results ------------------------------- 1 year update Hi everyone So, I have been on treatments for an entire year now (10 months min, 12 months finasteride) and I, therefore, feel like an update is due I have not had any side effects apart from a little watery semen (which is gone now) and I can happily say that it has been a great decision to start the Big 3. The hair on the top of my head has stayed thick since the last time I uploaded pictures, so I will only focus on showing my temples. Here are the fotos: View attachment 30747 View attachment 30748 It should be noted that the baseline for my left temple is actually 3 months into treatments as all my baseline pictures of my left temple are bad. As you can see from my baseline pictures, I was a NW2 (semi diffuse as well), but now I have grown out my teenage Norwood 1 hairline. However, the hairs on my temples are, as you probably can see, very thin and short and they grow slower than the rest on my head, but they still give the illusion of a NW1. Even if my hairline doesn't thicken up, I will still be very satisfied with the results I have gotten. All comments and questions are welcome ------------------------------------- Three year update Hi everyone. Approximately three years have passed since I started the big three. Still going strong. Definitely one of the bests decisions I have made. I still have small thin hairs on my hairline as seen two years ago. They never grew thick and strong, but I am content with what I have.
