    I’m 31 and will finally accept I’m thinning badly. I was denying it for a few years as my whole family has great hair. But it’s just gotten worse. If I can stop it here I can live with it. My hairline is fine. It’s just thing badly near the hairline and at the top and crown.back and sides are fine I think I’ll use “keeps “online. Should I get the foam , solution , or pill. Is that the best route to go? It says finsta and minoxidil. I don’t really care of side affects I’m I’m bald I won’t care either way. Any help is amazing I want to start ASAP.

    You could. Or you could pay to see a derm one time, or a free hair transplant consult, n they will give you a script for finasteride for 90 days, then keep sending the prescription over from there on out. Generics are about $5 a month, and minoxidil from kirkland is about the same. Online is easy, the other way vastly cheaper.

    You can get finasteride way cheaper dude. Also I wouldn’t use minoxidil ... you get some hair back if you respond well to it but then you’re stuck applying it for life or you’ll shed a f*** ton of hair and be in a bad state mentally. As said above .. finasteride and stick for a year.

    Also i would argue get a hormone blood panel done. Very useful if you get sides.

    Yeah wouldn’t try minoxidil - see how you respond to finasteride at the one year mark . minoxidil as an absolute last resort

    Yeah try finasterid for 12 months by itself, you may be lucky and get regrowth without the hassle of minoxidil(although low dose oral is an option) if you are still maintaining but getting no regrowth after about 12/16 months then add minoxidil,

    Okay. May I ask why it’s last resort. Are the side affects bad or something ?

    It's not exactly a last resort per say, it's just a bit crappy having to apply a topical to your hair every day, popping a pill is just a much easier routine. Like people have said give finasteride at least 12 months then think about minoxidil.
