    Thanks for the feedback. It’s a strange one. Might be the constant shed that makes it feel worse. Don’t underestimate how bad loss of density can get even with a solid hairline. At my age a dense Norwood would look and feel better than a NW1 diffuse in NW6 pattern

    So I haven’t washed my hair in 2 weeks. Ton of dry shampoo and thickeners in. Zero scalp itch. Losing a lot more small hairs.

    Considering adding RU to 60 ml of topical Finasteride though nothing is working. My Testosterone is now off the charts for my age (1200+) massive daily shedding. Any thoughts?

    Just
    I’m in the 200-300 hairs a day shed club now. I feel you pain. Hopefully it’s just a shed from starting duta.

    Looks like you are not prone to male pattern baldness but the excessive testosterone is hurting your hairs. I would pain attention to your thyroid. Hyperthyroidism leads to an increase of 6-10x of testosterone and dht levels. Maybe you are taking too much thyroid medication and this leads to an hyperthyroidism.

    Do you actually lose this amount? Thats crazy.. my density has taken such a massive hit, as you know because we've spoken before. My shedding has slowed a bit, I don't lose as much in the shower. Less than 10 (from what I can see).

    How long has your shed been like this? Surely you're maintaining because you'd be bald in a few months?

    I know it sounds crazy but the loss is real, it is 100% also growing back just thinner and much weaker and that’s what has kept me from looking bald. But the density is a fraction of what it was even in December.

    I don’t know if the Minoxidil is contributing to the constant shed? I just don’t know if the Finasteride has helped at all. I have diffuse miniaturization.

    Yea it’s honestly unbelievable. I really don’t know how I’m not bald or look more bald than I am but my shed is massive. This is the most I’ve shed that’s for sure. Hair is also regrowing but it’s regrowing thinner each time. What I would do to stop this shed man.

    I hear you. I thought I was in the clear thick long black hair at 40 and then out of the blue I’ve been losing massive amounts daily.

    Can I get some feedback on this picture. I was out running and felt a crazy amount of wind on the back of my head. I’m trying to gauge if the thinning is mostly male pattern baldness or everywhere.

    With the long hair is tough. Trying to gauge if the crown thinning is similar to the back thinning it what should be the safe area. The hair has a turned to a thin mess, tangled beyond repair.

    WTF another shower another nightmare.

    Thinning faster than ever. Still on a heavy dose of topical Finasteride daily. Pattern is weird. Hard to see miniaturization aside from the hairline. Girlfriend says she can’t see a pattern. I feel like the sides and back are thin but still stronger than vertex.

    You sure the finasteride isn't doing more bad than good? That's what happened to me. It's accelerated my hairloss and thinned my hair. I lose it from back and sides now.

    I know it's not what you're looking to hear, but your hair still looks good

    Hey
    Your first post on this group was over 2 years ago. Have you continued to shed like that all this time? Your hair doesn’t look different

    Thanks for pulling that image, I started the thread for myself to keep track and to answer is this male pattern baldness or chronic Telogen Effluvium.

    The part hasn’t changed much but the amount of hair layered has and I also get weird horizontal parts. I assure no one is f*****g around. The density is a fraction of what it was and I have a gallon zip lock of hair from the last six months.

    So you are saying that your hair gets worse and that it doesnt show in pics?
    I have diffuse thinning, and Im afraid that photos are deceiving me.

    I am saying the pics don’t accurately show the loss of density and the change in the quality of the hair. Still NW1 but it’s very diffuse and weaker at temples. Just trying to determine if I need to go heavier on AA’s or look for answers elsewhere.

    I’m thinking of adding my RU powder to topical Finasteride or the peptide solution.

    If I were in your place I would definitely get on something stronger. Like oral finasteride if you havent tried it before. Or opt for duta.
    If both fail check this thread. The treatments mentioned in this thread are not for everyone, proceed at your own risk. Good luck.

    so what did you end up doing? quit finasteride and hows your situation? because finasteride has accelerated my hair lost lost over 60% density starting from baseline.
