    Guys i really want to start finasteride but i'm worried about the "shed"
    My hair isn't that bad right now. maybe norwood 2.5. If i style it well you can't tell i'm balding. Im worried that i i take finasteride i will shed and my hair will look worse before it looks better in a years time. I know it's silly because long term i'll be better off but im worried. will the shed make your hair look really bad?

    I don’t want to add to the fear. For some it seems to work fast.

    I have been bleeding hair for 4 months since starting, years of loss in 60 days starting Finasteride.

    Maybe I guess it could recover I a year but I wish I had never stared.

    Not really anything I can say about this, since I’m just about to start myself as well..

    I know the shed can be horrible and maybe even f*** it up in some cases but let’s be realistic. I’m diffusing like hell already now, if I don’t do anything I won’t be having any hair in a bit anyway. Might as well give it a chance now!

    What is the current state of your hair? Do you have noticable shedding and at what rate?
