    Continuing a side thread here from Tyler's miconazole topic. I started his miconazole regimen with great results in the last 4 months and added essential oils in the last 3 weeks with what seems to be added improvement. I'll post pics once a month.

    Here's the gist.

    I've been using the miconozole nitrate now for 4 months with good results.

    Began here at this site in 2002 at the age of 26 and I'm 41 now. (Note: My original username was lost when I changed my email address and wasn't on this site from 2004 until now). My thinning has been diffuse in the temples and have never had issues in any other area. Made huge gains and maintained it for 10 years.

    Temples are shit now but rebounding again. I took some pics last night and will post here later.

    Here's my current regimen:

    finasteride 1.25 mg daily (since 2001)
    Rogaine 2x daily (since 2003)
    Nizoral shampoo every other day (since Nov 2016)
    Capasal shampoo every other day (since May 2017)
    Miconzole Nitrate every day at night (Since May 2017)

    Added in July:

    S5 Plus Cream 1x daily at night
    Saw Palmetto 1x daily 1500 mg
    Quality fish oil 1x daily
    Vitamin D 10,000 IU 1x daily
    Astaxanthin 1x daily
    Rhodiola 1x daily
    Ashwaganda 1x daily
    Pantothenic acid 1x daily
    Biotin 1x daily

    Added 3 weeks ago:

    Mixture of castor oil as a medium with 2 drops of peppermint oil, 2 drops of rosemary oil, 2 drops of cedarwood oil. Applied every other night to thinning areas. We'll see if it works, but damn...this application feels great on my scalp.

    Notes: I was using the Nizoral regularly with the finasteride and minoxidil for 10 years with really really good results. I stopped using the Nizoral because of the cost. Huge mistake. I wish I'd never had stopped using it. I got back on the Nizoral last November regularly. Went through 7 months of a gradual shed. Started the gains again with the addition of the miconozole nitrate and Capasal shampoo like Tyler.

    What I've noticed. The minoxidil does not have the same effect with my hair that it once did. When I began to add other growth "helpers" that's when the gains have started again.

    No side effects from finasteride since beginning in 2001.
    Nizoral 1% 3-4 times a week
    I usually apply the S5 then the miconazole right after one another at night. It's messy but I use it at night.
    Ashwaganda and Rhodiola are supposedly good for stress and mood. Not sure how well they work but I do feel better since starting them. Better focus and concentration. It's easier for me to maintain a pretty clean diet.
    Biotin at 10,000 bcu's or whatever. It's one tablet per day.

    I have but I want to give the alternative methods a try first. So far so good. I want to hold off on the dutasteride as long as I can.

    Do you have any diffuse thinning or only receding ?

    I had diffuse thinning in my temples at age 23. It wasn't a slow recession. I have not had any other loss in any area.

    So, is that because of genetics or because of my regimen? I don't know. I do know that I have been consistent in the last 14 years. Except for the 2 years recently where I stopped taking the Nizoral.

    I've maintained quite a bit. It's all perspective. To me, it's been too much. But from a realistic point of view, I've been very very fortunate.
    I'll see what I can find from way back in 2002-2003. I doubt it'll be much more than a general picture...but who knows.

    Here's the thing, too. Very few people who have success stick around on forums. I know I didn't. Once I saw my results from the big 3, I didn't visit here. So from 2003 or 2004 until a few months ago. This forum helped me save my sanity. At the same time, it harbors a lot of fear and negativity. Personally, finasteride has been a godsend to me. And no side effects.

    Whatever the case, find a regimen, stick to it, and don't give up.

    You hair is amazing for a 41 years old man!

    How did your hair look like before your regimes?
