    Jay-
    Yeah i honestly have no reason to lie...the kid was on propecia wayyy back probably around 19 or 20....I remember him mentioning it and i had no clue what the drug even was.

    and this is 6 years later

    I remembered another kid who started around 19, 20 and now 5 years later, has gotten worse.

    Im just saying, i dont know where you read that it could hold your hair for 50 more years...id be hesitant to listen to nonmedical sources and posters anecdotes before giving your hopes up

    No offence, but irony escapes most Statesiders - that's why they don't get the English sense of humour.

    This post is sorta humerous. My hair clearly has grown thicker then it had ever been before thanks to the world of chemicals. I still hang around on hair loss forums because I'm obsessed with outer appearance. Just because we're on some forum doesn't mean we all do not have lives.

    Well I already use Regaine, but if I can get it delievered off this site I am going to try the Rogain foam. I'm either going to order the proscar or the genric brand stuff too, if I can work out which is best for me to used. Shed any light?

    When my revivogen shampoo runs out I will get some nizoral too.

    Thanks

    So if DHT is the only cause of male pattern baldness, why doesn't taking hairloss products proven to lower DHT work for everyone?!

    You cant always fight your genetics. Everybody has DHT wether they are nw1 or nw7.

    We don't know if it's the 'only' cause, although it certainly seems to be the main factor. Some men will be sensitive to even low levels of DHT. Remember, only large doses of dutasteride eliminate essentially ALL of it. There is also some speculation that our early exposure to DHT (unlike the naturally 5AR deficient pseudohermaphrodites, who never get exposed to much DHT) can cause some kind of permanent 'damage' to follicles.

    My hair right now is better than it was 2 years ago so its true guys, jump on the big three and you should be able to at least hold on to what you have for a while.

    The reason I say that is. I have been fair unsuccessful with my hairloss journey. However, I never expected anything to really work anyway. So I am about to embark on a course of finasteride, when I know in the back of my mind its not going to work, but i'll kick myself if I don't try it! Catch 22...

    I've haven't tried it yet, but I am sure I will be ok with the side affects. I have heard revivogen doesn't do anything.
