    Hair continues to get worse. Temples have really took a hit the past couple of months. And itch i had yrs and yrs ago is back along with the oily scalp and face. This recent bout of loss all began when i started back on finasteride after using dutasteride for a while which i stopped because of sides. I had used fincar for years which worked great but when i went back to finasteride from dutasteride i bought finast instead which was cheaper. I knownits probably not fake but they have done nothing for me so im switching to finastride from a proper uk place. Hoping i can bring back some stability to my loss along with dermarollijg more often. New finasteride arives tomorrow so taking this and below as day 1 and ill see where im at in 3-4months time. Just hoping finasteride hasnt lost its effectiveness :(

    Hairline and where my original hairline was roughly

    Got a short haircut and feeling better about things. Can still achieve the fullhead look with styling which is good. New finasteide arrived (from uk) and have started that. And loving castor and peppermint oil have to say! Scalp still giving me issues but im attacking that on all fronts with coal tar t gel, nizoral and the castor.

    Will stick to my promise of hairline pulled back photos in few months to compare to the above nov22nd ones. My hairloss is fairly stable again so at least i will be able to compare well to look for any regrowth or just maintaining/ increased hair health. Fingers crossed :)

    Quick update. Feel things are maybe on the up. Could be imagining this but my hair feels better. As discussed on a different thread i have managed to completely get rid of the itch using peppermint oil and cleared my scalp acne too. Think this is helping my hair. Only been a month on the new finasteride and oils regime but i think i may have made a little progress if not ive definately balanced things up and im not shedding like mad anymore. Few pics below. Thanks

    Your hair still looks great man! I really hope I maintain as long as you did on finasteride (I'm on my 2nd year now).
