    I'm 34 years old and been a NW6 for about 4-5 years, although my hair loss started around 20. My hair loss appears to have stabilized, and I have high sides / back area, although not the best density. I have miniaturized hairs all over the top of my crown area. I've decided to throw everything available at this, with the goal of connecting any results with a hair transplant after a year or so. I'm at work and can post pics later, but I'm a pretty standard NW6. What are my odds of achieving regrowth? Also, am I missing anything? I've seen some pretty wild results here, so I figured I'd atleast give it a shot.

    Oral Minoxidil - Going to start at 2.5 MG per day and reduce / increase if needed depending on sides.
    finasteride - 1Mg Per Day
    Microneedling - 1.5mm once per week
    Scalp Massages - Daily

    The odds aren't great for a NW6, but with microneedling anything is possible. Definitely hold off for a year on a hair transplant until you see what you can regrow. It doesn't make any sense go in and destroy miniaturized follicles with a hair transplant before finding out if they can be saved. Not to mention, you won't get good results as a NW6, but if you can get it back to a NW4 with treatments it will make a world of difference in your transplant results.
