    Hey man. from the pics u sent its getting better now. I think it works to u. as you mentioned we can say for sure yet and time will tell. I have the same shed as the your first pic on the top of my head. in the past 1.5years I took finasteride(1year.2mg per day)dutasteride(6months .5mg per day)with no increase at all.i will add Rogaine in my treatment in the end of this year to see what I can have.cheers

    Shedding massively, but my hair is looking and feeling thicker. What gives?

    Edit: Perhaps the increased shedding can be contributed by the dutasteride hitting its max level of DHT inhibition only just about let's say 6 weeks(ish) ago, according to dosage charts taking .5 mg EOD would be equivalent to .25 mg ED so at around 4-5 months on dutasteride theoretically I'd have reached its full saturation.

    you will shed again and again and again, there will be bad times and good times. Last months i thought I lost all my gains but then I got surprised this month at how thick my hair has gotten as i got it cut

    I sure hope I end up with thicker hair. This rollercoaster of shedding sucks, it's torture.

    It's normal tho, it will get better eventually, I'm 8 months into finasteride and nearly a year on minoxidil, my hair is so awesome, only the front needs a little more time, but i guess another 3 months will do and I'm back to my 17 year old status, which would be fucking awesome

    Hairline and crown pics, they're in favorable lighting so it's looks better than it really is. I was liking how it looked so I took pics.

    Your barber is a champ, that's a fire ass fade. Looks good and honestly man I'd take the meds and forget about hairloss, you're obviously way above baseline.

    The shop I go to a lot of college and professional athletes get their cuts, pricey but well worth it.

    Hopefully I'll continue to see thickening. I guess I'm an example of a excellent responder to meds, perhaps in the near future there will be a treatment to come out where I'll be able to retain all my hair. Can only wish.

    Looking good m8. Do you think dutasteride helped you at all? How often are you taking it?

    Looking solid man. NW1. Where I'm hoping to get but it may be too optimistic

    I'm sure it has. When I added dutasteride and minoxidil in March I was beginning to see a reemergence of my hair from being on finasteride for 6 months at that point.

    Definitely a success story. You are a great responder to hair loss medications. Lucky you!

    wow crazy result man!
    how much finasteride helped you when you took it alone ?

    minoxidil gave you crazy regrowth in 2 month ! you use the liquid version ?

    Just wanted to post these two pics to compare how far I've come. The first one was taken today, the second one was in march. The crown is still diffuse but a transplant in the future should hopefully fix it.

    In the second photo I deteriorated to that condition in just about 8 months. So my hair loss is VERY agressive.

    Started with twice a day, now once a day with close to 3ml for the whole thinning areas on the head. And liquid, foam is shit

    Oh damn man that is aggressive af. I see why you got on dutasteride. Good improvement. Hopefully you will continue to improve and have maintenance for years to come

    Did you try foam for a while? Didn't you like the texture or were the hair gains different?
