Do you apply it on the whole top of your head ? if its yes how to apply it?
 
I use probably around 1 ml, but I use all of that on front and middle , and not on the crown because I dont have problem there . This is what I do . I Spread the hair and apply minoxidil directly to the scalp . I let minoxidil drops to slide along the scalp and after that I use my hands to massage it into the scalp . It dries quickly that way .

My brother use Minoxidil 2 % and it worked for him too . He is also using finasteride 1.25 mg ed.
Before minoxidil I used and still do Ketokonazole 2 % shampoo and I think it slowed down my hairloss , because I have more hair than my two brothers .
:innocent:
 
I am 24 years old . I have been experiencing hair loss since I was 20 . Thanks . I had a haircut yesterday . You might see results even better on these pictures . after 5.jpgafter 6.jpgafter 7.jpg .

All pictures were taken on the same place with the same lighting . I ll keep u guys updated . I hope that minoxidil will work long term for me . I guess I can get at least 2 to 3 years . I have read dr. Vera Price study that showed minoxidil users had more hair after two years of minoxidil use than at the beginning.

Looks good man. Very encouraging. You truly think minoxidil is helping the temple area? I thought they say its more effective for the top and crown.

Apsolutly . Minoxidil helped my temple area especially those temple points. It made them better , and darker . The regrowth is better in the middle though . It is still getting better . I noticed that I am losing that V shaped hairline and getting straight hairline. But to be honest I dont think that minoxidil can increase hair count that much ( excluding vellus hairs ) . I do think that minoxidil primarly makes existing hair thicker , and darker .

Dude, now get on Finasteride and keep those hairs! Rogaine won't be enough. Don't worry about side effects, there's a 2% chance you'll get any and things will always go back to normal once you stop.

I'd hate to see someone lose more hair because they didn't want to take a pill every morning due to some way overblown hysteria. I'm sure many people on this site went on Finasteride a year or two before they did when they realized nothing bad happened to them. You won't regret it!!
 
Bigsby thanks for advice . The thing is I already take paxil for my anxiety (panic attacks) . It works , but it affect libido and erections badly (70% users report sexual side effect using paxil). I am afraid to take finasteride because 2 drugs that have the same side effects was never a good idea . If I get any sides I wouldnt know which of those two caused them :-( :p . For now I will stick with minoxidil and I will add dermaroller in the future .
