    Ok everyone, I got a haircut. This is what it looks like with NO toppik or styling products. Let me know what you guys think. Obviously the crown and diffuse thinning is still there, but I think when I put in toppik n some hairspray covers it well.

    Let me know what you think about my over 1 year mark on finasteride. I believe I’m still losing hair so I plan on switching to dutasteride

    Looks good, but
    These pics look better than the pics at the beginning of your thread. Still, you know best how the loss is progressing. I just added dutasteride after about a year of finasteride...working my way up from one pill a week to more frequent dosing.

    I can still get pics on certain days where it looks like things are perfect...but on a bad day, or with wet hair, the situation just can't be disguised.

    Thx bro. What’s happened with me, is that the thinning has spread. Before I just had thinning in one spot of the crown but now I’m diffused and i have more area of scalp showing, even if it’s not showing much more.

    I feel your pain... I can’t ever go out with my hair wet. If it starts to rain I panic.

    It's improving bro so don't panic anymore I think u can remember me
    I jumped to Dutasteride 0.5 mg everyday and i can say it was a huge qualitative shift from all levels !!
    Regrowth on hairline and crown and The inflammation with itching have been completely eliminated
    So good luck if u think about Dutasteride

    I do remember you! How’s everything going now with your hair? How long have you been on finasteride/dutasteride? Lastly, any side effect differences going from finasteride to dutasteride?

    Everything went well, i can see a lot of little hairs on hairline and my crown is a lot much healthier with regrowth also without any kind of inflammation or itch and my scalp is not oily anymore like before while on finasteride
    The sides are watery semen and puffy nipples But I can tolerate the side effects for my hair !!
    I have been on dutasteride for 6 months now
    I think everyone should gave dutasteride a try cuz finasteride is useless for a lot of people

    Geez if that's your hair when wet then you don't have much to worry about, stick with finasteride or jump on to dutasteride and you should be fine. I just had the same sides as finasteride, slightly lower libido, less semen volume...nothing else, so maybe think about making the switch and up your chances of maintaining your hair like that for years to come. It's not in a bad state at all.

    Thx bro. My hair looks worse wet in person lol. I’ll try to get some pics that show the major damage. But I guess everyone’s looks worse in person so photos are still justifiable.

    Were you having sides on finasteride as well or just dutasteride?

    Lil update here. I think my hair is thinner than ever. I’ve been shampooing a lot less frequently because it makes my hair easier to style, but then when it gets greasy it becomes a lot more noticeably thin. I still plan on switching to dutasteride when I get myself to the doctor. Here are some wet hair pics straight out of the shower. One is uncombed and the rest are combed like previous wet hair photos.

    I just hit my maximum weight, 220 lbs 6’4”. I’m prob about 25% body fat so I’ve got a gnarly case of “skinny fat” so I got my *** back into the gym n I’m happy about that. Overall, I still feel a lot better than I did in the beginning of this thread (mentally) although my hair is worse in my opinion.

    Still no side effects on finasteride :)

    Let me know what u guys think. I’m trying to keep this thread up for future baldies to come check out in the future.

    13-14 months on finasteride only.

    Went back in my thread and found some wet pics parted in the middle, so I tried to replicate them. They’re labeled by date in the photos.

    PLEASE let me know if you see that my crown/overall density is noticeably thinner. My hair was longer in the January photos.

    Keep in mind these photos are 7 months apart.

    honestly to me it looks about the same. I cant see a difference. But I know that pics can be deceiving so only you know best. If you truly feel like you are continuing to thin then you probably are.

    If my hair is seemingly unchanged, I’ll take it! It’s still manageable with toppik n some hairspray so I can live with it. As long as it doesn’t rain...

    This is my hair when I wake up. Worse than ever :(. Thinning everywhere.

    If I were able to post a video, you’d all see what I mean.

    Dude it really baffles me that you're still not on Minoxidil. You obviously hate your hair situation (eventhough it's not that bad), but you don't want to put the minimal effort in of applying it 1x or 2x a day. Which will be well worth it because of the mental relief it gives. You could even try oral minoxidil if you'd like.

    Yes, but only for a temporary time. After that you're golden since all the hairs you shed grow back. I honestly don't understand what's so scary about it.
