Hey all! So for some background my hair loss all started or at least became very noticeable about 18 months ago where during that time I believe the extreme stress I was going through triggered my hair loss, which it REALLY accelerated. An old friend pointed it out a night out, I went home to check and sure enough he was right. Even at the time I didn't think it was too bad, maybe just a normal cowlick ya know? Well the shedding never stopped. I remember my hair was literally falling out in bunches, just running my fingers through my hair I'd get at least 10-15. Showers were terrible as well. I wish I still had my baseline pics(old phone broke and like an idiot I didn't back it up) but the top of my head had no hair, it ceased to grow. My follicles went dormant just like that. That's when I started to do something about it, went to a derm and was prescribed finasteride at 1.25 mg a day. At that same time before any treatment I could already see regrowth on my top. So I've been on finasteride for about 8 months and I'm very pleased with the results thus far. I'm shedding hair at I'd say a normal rate which is great. Now I've decided to add dutasteride EOD at .5 mg with 5% minoxidil 2x per day on crown and hairline for some regrowth, also adding Regenepure shampoo. So I'm attacking this from all angles now and I'm excited to see the progress. I plan to drop the finasteride in about 3-4 months once I reach full saturation on dutasteride, during this time I'll still take finasteride as a safety net if things go awry. It's probably coincidence but in the recent few days my hair has really thickened up! I cant even get a comb through! In the photos you can see my right temple goes deeper than the left, looking back at photos it's always been like that. My hairline hasn't really been to affected by this just mostly my top obviously as my hair loss has been diffuse. I'm seeing regrowth on the forelock, all along my hairline really so I'm excited. As you can see that my crown has been the most affected area, like I've said earlier I literally had no hair growing there 8 months ago so the progress is great. I understand hair takes time to grow, and especially for damaged hair to get back to the normal cycle again. Patience and consistency are key. With that I'll be posting progress pics monthly, feel free to ask questions as well.
