Hi, My first post. I have posted the same content in a different forum because I want to give older guys out there some hope even if it seems "too late to do something about it". From what I've read, there's doubt if it's possible for older guys to recover hair at all. I'm in my late 40's and have been losing hair since college. As you can see in the first picture, a lot of my hair was gone. Back in August, I started to take 1mg generic finasteride every day, generic Minoxidil (liquid) twice per day, and 1% Nizoral EOD. I had no sides whatsoever. Also, the shed that everybody is talking about never happened. Or maybe it did but not enough for me to notice (I really paid attention though). It was as if I was taking sugar pills and the only effect was hair growth, nothing else. Hair loss stopped pretty much right away. Regrowth started about 6 weeks into the journey. I regrew hair everywhere, top, hairline, temples. I'm attaching pictures for each month, starting in August, with the last 3 pictures being from December. All pictures are taken in my bathroom with 3 bright light bulbs shining from the top. I'm also aware that my hair is "4 months longer"since August. But it's obvious that there's more hair now. In the last picture, you can see all the shorter new hair at the hairline and temple. Those short hairs seem to be all over the scalp below the longer hair. My hair seems to be more healthy. It's darker now, going towards the dark blue-black color it was when I was a teenager. The last picture was taken 2 weeks ago. My hair has further improved a lot since. Anyways, hope this post will give encouragement to some of you. Good luck.
