    I mean does the hair falls like when it was long (in the same ratio, slower, faster)???.
    :pensativo:
    The reason I'm asking that, I've been shaving my head for almost 3 months now, how will I know if I'm shedding or not !!!

    I’m doing all possible ways to avoid :adminfinger: propecia in the time been, that’s why I’m shaving my head.

    Shaving your head has nothing to do with the number of hairs entering the telogen phase. It's just almost impossible to keep track of the hairs lost and you might think that shedding has reduced.

    If you spend many hours in the sun having a shaved head might be a drawback as UV rays are found to penetrate skin up to 250 micrometers so they could damage your follicles. Wear a hat.

    Shaving your head will have no direct effect on hair loss.

    i also shave my head, and things are going very well.. i think that it may help fighting hair loss, because the hair doesnt have to grow as long which must keep it strong. I am getting good regrowth on the temple area and hair line.

    It could be that the minoxidil grown hairs make it appear that there is good regrowth...

    suerte a todos!

    minoxidil 5% twice daily
    nizoral 2%
    1/2 proscar ( no side effects)
