    To see initial results took 4 months but to see the full benefit took 1 year. I used (and still use) Generic minoxidil 5% liquid.

    for me i started out on regaine (or rogaine in america) 5 % then switched to kirland (generic min) same strenght same same content just cheaper : ). after about a couple months i could see benifit not nessasary growth but hair that was look very brilltle dull a dying quite frankly was much healthier thinker and at the time when i started i was loosing hair fast. when i start min it stoped and kept getting better. i noticed slight regrowth or maybe thickening or veluss hairs after 3 months but finally got on finasteride and nizoral with help from here and the minoxidil seems to be really able to do its thing and i am definatly having regrowth now at month 5 1/2

    I saw results after 2 months.. My hairline looks much better. I also use Nizoral...
    minoxidil at night (once a day), and Nizoral 1% in the morning, every other day.

    What type of minoxidil do you use, and how much do you apply?

    Well by results I mean after 4 months I saw new hairs on my hairline, the hair all over my head was thickening and my " thin spot" in the back was closing. To this day (5 years later) I still do not have my balding spot in the crown the only loss I have had is slight temple recession thought the years but not much.

    i only use it on the temples, and have never seen results, that is no new hair. haven't lost any more either though, so i think it's working.

    I came across this the other day and its actually quite inspiring and the quality of pictures is very good:

    you'll see most of them start seeing cosmetically noticeable effects after 3-4 months. Of course these are the success stories but you get the idea. finasteride + minoxidil.

    I only started to see some benefit after 10 months. But even then the new hairs were quite thin.

    I started last October. There was a shed that lasted a few weeks. By around 2 months I could see an improvement, it seemed that the very thin area on top was a little less thin. Am still using it (rogaine liquid) and definitely have more hair than when I started, both on my hairline and crown. I use it once a day, at night, about 5ml in total. I guess I put about half on the hairline and half on the crown. I dont use finasteride.
