    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.

    looks like im not the only one who puts shed hair from finasteride on the shower walls lol...

    i understand blue's point that his pic aren't showing the true nature of his hair lost...if he was to not have it lay flat and wet like that, you would see his scalp more....thats the situation in my case, finasteride totally f'd my hair density.

    Thanks for affirming I’m not the only one treating the shower wall as a crime scene.

    It’s both extremely and gradual. The density is really gone but the hairline isn’t that much worse off. I’ve noticed the crown losing weight to the point that it won’t stay back.

    That’s the struggle, is the Finasteride doing harm? It’s like when 4 doctors told me Minoxidil could never hurt and year later, I’m never come close to recovery from the first 3 weeks in Minoxidil. I have no clue.

    I dont think minoxidil would ever make hair loss worse. It just happens that youv started minoxidil when the shedding started.
    For finasteride, making hair worse is possible due to reflex hyperandrogenicity.
    My hair loss is the same as you, although my frontal zone is not affected at all. My part at the top of my head is twice as large as the one at the front.

    Maybe you can get some hope from me, I lost about ~40-50% of my hair at the top and for about 11 months now, its still the same. I only use minoxidil and take biotin pills.

    I just know the testosterone is wreaking havoc.

    As much as I can see side thinning there still is a NW7 pattern. My high temples are thinning fast. Going to through in some RU I guess the Finasteride is doing nothing.

    Jesus you have great hair. People tell me I’m over reacting and my hair isn’t nearly as good as yours...

    I know but look at 3 years ago when I started on here. It was crazy black and dense. I had zero male pattern baldness and the shed won’t slow. Still know I’ve been fortunate just trying to slow down the loss.

    Can you send a picture like the one above now with dry hair after shampooing?

    Have some thickener in, not fiber just hair care stuff. I’m thinning fast at the temples more so than anywhere else. You can at least see the crown thinning. Flat.

    Yes but it’s still wet. Why won’t you ever send a picture like that when your hairs dry?

    I take a lot of criticism for over reacting but this rate of loss and the net loss of density from my baseline in just two years is pretty devastating. I’m hiding it well but I’m going to NW7 diffuse in a year and nothing has made a dent in the shedding.

    Wet no comb, wet side part.

    The vertex is where the thinning is most pronounced and recently (4 months) the temples are increasingly thin. Hair all over my hair and even beard feels thin and strange. Definitely still growing but can’t keep pace with loss.

    Is CB worth a shot? Or try the RU I have?

    Hey Blue,

    If you can try to get the same current pictures as the ones below(not wet), it'd be a better comparison. From your updates, you've shed a lot, but some people also grow hair faster.

    Dermatologist put me in Minocycline and my hair has gotten worse, two weeks. Is this know to cause hairloss?

    Your hair looks exactly the same to me. You’re 42 with a NW0.5 hairline and very minor loss of density. I can’t even imagine how you would’ve reacted if you started balding in your 20s.
    All of the picture you post are under severe lighting and still you can barely see your scalp. Maybe you should consider seeing a psychologist.
