I have started taking Rogaine foam 5% today using 2x a day here are some before pictures . I started notice the decline once I stopped being active and start eating a lot of junk food; I have had a bad acid reflux problem;my solution is to get in shape eat healthy and use rogaine I will keep everyone posted weekly. Thank you for your support.

    looks like you started in good time to be able to save your hair and grow back what you lost.

    I would add finasteride , that drug maintains the hair you have and stops future hair loss. don't be to bothered about horror stories regarding impotence, it's less than 1% that gets affected.

    My benefits will kick in soon with my employer; so once I have insurance I’ll make sure to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist that specializes in hair loss so I can get started on finasteride

    This is a day of hair without shampoo after a day of work at this point have been using minoxidil for a week. 2x a day. Last photo is what my hair use to be like; everyone in my family both mom and dads side has a full head of hair. I can assume this hairloss to bad nutrition, ever since I started dating my girlfriend I haven’t been eating that healthy been eating a lot of fast food. I’ve had a lot of stomach acid issues lately. And I have been under stress. So today’s my first day taking finasteride

    Stress can trigger a good shed, but the underlying problem is you are going bald (IMO). The good news is you are young and could respond to the big 3. Bad news is it looks pretty aggressive...

    Thank you Pogbaku, may you be blessed with amazing hair growth. I think we all need to realize life style plays a big role as to how well you will react to your treatment

    Update 7/17/18:

    My derma roller arrived in the mail today. It’s a 1.5mm, I used it and applied minoxidil right after. I plan to add to my regiment for 3x a week.

    Derma rolled today, the pain was way more bareable. I felt a couple of snags. Is it bad I’m trying to derma roll at least 3x a week.

    I think it’s to early to see results; my hair still looks awful wet.

    Just an update my hair is looking more and more thin and falling out i think that means I’ll have very good progresss to come. I am still using minoxidil twice a day; derma rolling at least 2x a week, finasteride 1mg a day. As well as regene pure. Every other day. I truely believe that my hair loss may be over due to my diet and stress related. My girlfriend did just break up with me the other day but it was mutual so I can fix myself since I have fell a little into a depression.

    My hair really fluffs up after washing it. My mom always said I have really poofy hair.
