Hello everyone. I don't have much going on today, so I am going to go ahead and start a log of my progress not just for myself, but also so all the members and lurkers can appreciate how the meds I'm using are/aren't working. Some of you have noticed me around on here for a bit I'm sure. I'm 27 years old. All of my hair loss is currently frontal, at the temples and hairline. I became aware that something was wrong about 2-3 years ago. I was in semi-denial for a while, until I finally accepted the horrible reality that I am, in fact, a balding man with sh*t hair genes. It's funny, because even when I look back at pictures of myself at like, 20 years old, I've been in NW2 and beyond territory for quite a while. Somehow it did not register in my mind during all that time that receding temples/hairline was even a thing. On March 12, 2016, I began using 5% minoxidil twice a day and 1% nizoral a few times a week. Here are some pictures from the day I started: About a month or two into minoxidil and nizoral, I realized my incessant, non-stop shedding had pretty much stopped, or at the very least significantly slowed down. On May 18, 2016, I began taking finasteride. Here are some pics from the day before I started (about 2 months into just minoxidil and nizoral) And these pics are from today, July 10, 2016. Temples are complete sh*t, especially the right one. There seems to be a bit of thickening, I don't know how much of it to attribute to meds and how much it might just be the fact that my hair is significantly longer...there are a bunch of vellus esque hairs along the edge of my forelock I noticed in the last couple weeks, which I definitely didn't notice before(although I'm having a little difficulty judging what's vellus and what's not because my hair is light blond). At this point, I would guess any success I'm having is mostly due to minoxidil, as I'm still just shy of the two month mark for finasteride.
