And I am still losing hair (f**k shedding)
I have curly hair so keeping hair short is better for me since my I am a diffuse thinner

I am just wondering if you guys notice any improvement of my hair
I feel like its got little thicker but I dont know may be just an illusion

Two photos with long hair is Day 1
Two photos with short hair is Day 90

I know hair length is different and shots taken from different direction
But I am just wondering is there any improvement.
Thanks!

It's hard to tell. It seems like but could be just an illusion also. Wit another 3 months to check.

It does look better at the crown for me. If I’m not seeing wrongly, the latest photos have shorter hair but are covering the head more uniformly.

Okay I am now in Month 4
I couldnt take duta for 2 weeks for some reason. I switched to finasteride after 3 month use of dutasteride.
My regime:
-1.25mg finasteride every morning
- rogaine foam once a day
- nizoral once a week
- 5000mg biotin every morning

So I feel like way less see through my scalp compare to last month. May be because I let hair grow for more than a month but still its quite noticeble to me that its less see through than before.
And may be little progress in crown area?

Anyway I dont get stressed out because of my hair anymore I am still losing but its getting better. Yes!

Here is Month 5 update

I maintain same regime but I become lazy applying rogaine at night. But I never skip finateride.

What I am experiencing now:
- no side effect
- no more stress from hairloss
- still losing about 20 - 30 hair per shower
(Noticing fallen hair got thicker)
- no see through scalp
- my family and friends are noticing the difference
- Crown area is slightly getting better but mostly hair got thicker overall and temples filled up nicely (not completely tho but I am so satisfied)

It looks a little better to my eyes.

Do you feel different? Did finasteride effect you in any way other than making your hair grow?

Good results. Are you still having problems motivating yourself to use rogaine even though you're having such good results?

Here is month 11 update!

- 1.25mg finasteride morning (since Day 1)
- nizoral once a week

* I became too lazy applying rogaine since Month 6... I don't know why. Maybe because I was satisfied enough. I skipped few days then I just gradually haven't use it.

**anyway I am going to add some more to my hair saving regime. I wanna have more density and volume now. (It's funny because when I first started I only wish for at least my hair can cover the scalp). I have no problem now going out without wearing a hat. But I can't deal with rain and snow, when my hair is wet it looks like sh*t.

I am going to do followings
- rogaine once a day
- dermarolling twice a week
- quit smoking

Quitting smoking is definitely the most challenging one. The doctor prescribed me Champix to help quit smoking and it's going to be my day 1. I read about so many studies about hair loss and smoking. And its definately related at least for people who have hairlossing DNA.

I am still losing 20-30 when I shower. But hairs are thicker then ever. I think smoking is the reason I keep losing hair even though it's increased thickness. I am smoking a pack a day which is a lot. Let's see if this going to work

Congrats you won for now and hopefully for a long time to come. Why not get back on minoxidil though? It looks really good but if you don’t have any issues with a growth stimulant why not commit and make it great? Smoking constricts the blood vessels so quieting smoking and using minoxidil might be twice as healthy for hair.

I didn't really see any "significant" results till 6 months in. And I had 2 very bad sheds at the 3rd month and the 8th month. Both lasted 6ish weeks and stopped.
