Hi folks I have been lurking around these forums for a couple of years but finally decided to post. I am 30 and have been slowly losing hair since I was 21. I am a pretty diffused NW2. I have been on the finasteride and Xandrox combo for nearly 4 months or so. Still shed just as much as I did before the treatment but I have also started to notice that my hair (especially on the crown and hairline) feel REALLY weak and brittle. I don't even want to touch these areas let alone massage them with minoxidil/spironolactone since I know that dozens of hairs will be disloged. I just cant ruffle my hair in these areas like I can at the back and side of my head. Is this a normal symptom of male pattern baldness or using finasteride/minoxidil? I do have 2-3 days every month where my hair generally feel stronger and that's when I love to run my fingers through them. Has anyone else noticed this? What are your thoughts?
