Hey Been a long time luker on this site, anyway I just thought I'd share what success I've had so far, My hair has gradually been getting worse over the last 10 years temples starting to recede then getting thinner and thinner, ( current age 34) I tried it all emu oil, tricomin etc etc in the past none of it worked. however in the last month I really started to notice actually how bad it was getting so I decided to take the plunge and jump on minoxidil foam and only use it once a day about a cap full , it's not a brand name or anything I got really cheap 3 cans off eBay like £30 or something, I had an old dermaroller which I'd never used also lying about so after reading posts from this site and how it could help with absorption I decided to throw that into my routine along with 300mg of biotin 2 tablets twice a day usually morning and night, I use nizoarl once every 2-3 days I think this has helped with the shedding I've been hearing about, to be honest that was my main concern before I went onto minoxidil what if I shedded and it didn't work and my hair didn't grow back and looked worse than ever all these crazy horror stories you hear. So I've been using 5 weeks. I wash my hair dermarol (every 2-3 days) l then apply the minoxidil takes roughly 5-10 mins I only apply minoxidil foam once a day as I said and that is at night time before bed. I've had no noticeable shedding at all maybe slightly in my crown but I've really noticed my hair starting to thicken up and there is vellus hairs along my hairline weather they mature or not who knows, no side effects either slight itch sometimes but nothing major. So I've been taken pictures so I can gauge how I'm doin and over all I'm pretty happy my hairs easier to style and feels thicker,Anyway here's some pictures from baseline 5 weeks ago to current state, top one picture is before second one is 5 weeks in, I will try to keep this thread updated as time goes by with pics etc Good luck !
