This thread will parallel my progress thread and highlight the positive effects of minoxidil+wounding, when compared to minoxidil alone. This first series of pictures are from my first run with minoxidil, which lasted roughly 10 months. The progress you see is from baseline-9 months of treatment. After month 10, I stopped taking minoxidil and proceeded to lose everything I'd gained over the next 7-9 months. The second series of pictures will be in a post under this one and highlight what I've gained back in only 2 1/2 months of wounding+minoxidil. I use the exact same area of my head to highlight the differences because there's a blemish that's located directly on my hairline, so it's easy to track. I don't have a pic to show that specific area of my scalp for a second baseline pic after I stopped, but, I assure you, it was devoid of any regrowth. I'll include of a picture of how fucked I was after all that shedding. I'll also include the baseline pic from my first run with minoxidil, because it was probably similar, if not worse.
