Hi everyone. Since I like this forum more then others and I will probably stay with you guys for while I will share my story with hair loss. I am 29. I do suffer for anxiety disorder and very strong panic attacks, and as we all know, stress is not great for hair. Also I was dealing with strong depression since I was 18. When I was younger I always admired good looking movie stars who were over 40, and were great looking, successful people. I wanted be like them. My obsession about hair started from one minute to another as soon as I realized that these guys have head full of hair and that’s what mostly makes them good looking on mature age. I am coping quite well with my mental issue, and not thanks to antifeedants with I was taking for a while, but thanks to mediation really recommend that to everyone, I did not believe in it, but I stayed disciplined about it and it helped a lot. Since my 18, I regally read news about upcoming(?) hair treatments, investigate hair transplant procedures, watching results of propecia or rogaine. In my family history Hair Loss accrue. My dad and my grandfather have very decent head of hair. I am hitting the same direction I can tell. Grandfather has hairs like Harrison Ford at age 89. However my mom’s dad, was totally bald before are 23. And my poor brother is 25 and apparently received his genes, because he has very low amount of hair. I already contact some surgeons about my future Hair Transplant surgery. Dr Erdogan said that I need take finasteride, because I am suffering for mineralization of hair, not hair loss :// I also have office consultation in Rafael de Freitas clinic in 2019. But it does not look positive because as far as know he does operation only when patient is on propecia :/ I am about to contact in some time dr Feriduni who is fine with operation without finasteride. I have busy life time now so I can’t afford and allowed myself for any operations, but this is what is going to happen in future. Unless miracle cure will come out with I don’t think so. I do not take propecia and I am not using rogaine. First of all, I will be honest, rogaine is pain in the ass and fact that if you would quit for some reason you may end up being worse than you started, and life is brutal and sometimes you simply won’t be able to afford it. Propecia then has side effects, with I am not accepting. I also had a thinking that I “want” to lose all weak before hair transplant surgery, not keeping then if they will fall of anyway(because propecia slows down hair loss, not stopping it completely). What I do take is: - Biotin 10.000, once per day - Vitapil(hair supplements), once per day - Nizoral 2%, since October 2017, twice per week.(I did notice very, very minimal hair growth on … chest), - Vichy Dercos(red one for hair loss – I tested a lot of shampoos and this one is my number one for many years). - Alpecin few weeks ago I decide to give it a try. Works fine. Makes my head a bit cold and because of that i have higher blode flow on head area, with makes my hair energized after dry. - Toppik spray, Products i tried: Shampoo like Toppek, Nanogen, Revita... and a lot of others. Nothing can provide better thickness then Dercos and together with Toppik Spray, hairs look very thick.

I don’t mind hairline I have now, but this widow peak sucks :/ I am targeting in 2020. Hopefully Fevi will be before out, and I won’t have to deal with finasteride’s side effect, who knows maybe Shiseido plus hair transplant to cover the rest. If i will get crazy enough at the end of journey i will do SMP.
