    I’m 28 years old and my hairline continues to creep back. I’ve been on finasteride for 2 years and oral min 2.5 mg for 18 month. I’ve tried topical min, prp injections duta( think it accelerated it) and whole bunch of vitamins. Still continues to go back.

    Anyone done anything else that has helped with the hairline? Here are some pictures 21 months apart. I take them close up and put reference lines and dots.

    2nd photo is 21 months ago.

    I’ve been applying premade ru from Kane for about 3/4 weeks now. It’s not doing anything of anything it’s gotten worse.

    still afraid finasteride or oral min could be making hair worse. I never shed until treatments. How’s it “s 200 hairs a day.

    I’ve heard you need to take at least 5 mg for oral minoxidil to be effective. Could be wrong though.

    I use to take 7.5mg but humor sit down as I thought it was hurting my hair. The biggest difference in my hairline is coming from the side. These photos are 7 months apart. Hairline is receding more outward from the side than upwards as of late.

    If you really want to stop it, you need to start AAs. No other option.

    What AA would you recommend? I already tried a low dose of spironolactone and got very mild gyno after 4 months. I stopped it about two months ago.

    Looks like you've thrown the sink at it. Some people cannot stop the train from going off the tracks. Is what it is.

    If you’re considering AAs you should already be expecting to endure the sides. Most strong AAs will give you sides. I would recommend you to start spironolactone for real this time. You will get sides, at the expense of stopping your hair loss most likely.

    Yea man I can’t do the oral AAs unfortunately. Small dose of spironolactone 50mg gave me gyno. Is have doubled ds if I took 150/200 lol.

    My crown has most likely remained the same lucky (seeing I shed 200 plus hairs a day). Here is s a picture of crown two years ago. Hair is wet and under bright light and spiked second picture is dry. It’s not better but it’s the same looks a lot better bc of the lighting and wetness.

    But my god damn hairline keeps going back and getting thinner over these past 2 years. So any recommendations for treatments that people have done would be great.

    I’ve tried
    Derma
    finasteride 2.5 mg
    Oral min 2.5mg
    Duta for 4 months on and off.
    Premade RU

    My issues are same,hairline is getting shorter and becoming narrow making temples visible.
    The reason is that frontal hairs esp have great number of androgen receptors so DHT hits there first with great force so that most people could do nothing but watch them slowly going away.
    Hairline is hardest part to regrow,I think few could regrow it on extreme regimen

    I agree Man. Retorts is not possible for me at the hairline but maintenance is what I’m looking for. How you found anything that helps yours out?

    Then you’re out of luck. Better to leave this site and give your mind a rest, cause there is nothing you can do now.

    You should try your best. You will never have it off your mind completely, but try to live your life a bit as your recession is quite slow actually.

    @Calikid as I’ve had the same struggle with a jack of response to treatment thought I’d weigh in.

    still looks like you are holding well on your density.

    I am going to give topical Dutasteride a run of 3 months alongside RU oral minoxidil, taker off of topical Finasteride. If that doesn’t help I’m going to dial back AAs keep minoxidil and hope for some reset.
