    Edit: found some more before pics
    (Date are in file titles)

    September-December 2019 (5% minoxidil, consistent microneedling)
    *0 results*

    January-February 2020 (5% minoxidil + RU58841, inconsistent microneedling)
    *better results, only noticeable on a microscopic level*

    February-present 2020 (dualgen plus - 15% minoxidil & 1% topical finasteride, no microneedling)
    *immediate noticeable results, not sure if peaked yet*


    Conclusions: topical finasteride works. I get no sides from topical finasteride. Higher concentration of minoxidil produces better results. Twice a day is not necessary if you use 15% minoxidil. Its not a miracle. Will revert your hair back to the stage it was at 5 years ago, but not 10 years ago.

    Microneedling may or may not help, results inconclusive

    Here is more progress pics - temple area w/ flash. Hair same length.

    This is my 3 months progress since starting topical finasteride and ketoconazole shampoo (before that had no results with minoxidil alone).
    I've only derma-needled about twice since then.

    daily scalp massages with wooden brush

    2-3x/week ketoconazole shampoo
    1x/day dualgen 15 plus

    Looks the same, quit coping and go get a hair transplant to escape the horseshoe curse

    Terrible pictures, hair longer each time, but it looks like you're phenomenal responder to finasteride.

    Thanks. No sides for me. This is the first and only thing I've tried thats worked for me (and i tried a LOT of things) so I'm gonna stick with it. Might switch over to maxogen-x though because i hear it's less sticky than the dualgen plus

    I try to stick with it at least once a day but i almost always skip a day or two each week because it's such a chore to apply and it's so sticky

    Here is temple (exposed with hair brushed back) and temple (covered with hair)

    I've been cutting my own hair because of the lockdown so it looks a little messy
