    Still shedding like a mad man so i give myself buzzcuts. A. Little update hairline is starting to get some shape despite the overall huge shed. I apologize for the bad quality pics, future updates will be with a better quality. IMG_20160814_155934.jpg IMG_20160814_160238.jpg IMG_20160814_155746.jpg
    The buzzcut and poor quality might be hiding how bad things are going in terms of thickness but ya thats all for now. Plx no make funs of my big forehead

    When did you quit minoxidil? 2-3 months before your shed? 2-3 months after I quit minoxidil back in 2015 I went into the biggest shed I've ever had and essentially dropped back down to baseline. It's easy to underestimate the effect minoxidil has and overestimate how much CA/estradiol is doing.

    I'm good. Fighting my personal demons as usual. My hair is looking better. I had been worried about my crown density for a while, but it seems to have gotten considerably thicker. I don't know if hair count is significantly higher or if the hair that was there just got stronger/thicker or what... kinda leaning towards the latter. Either way, it's no longer see through even in harsh lighting, so I'm happy with it. Hairline had been stalled out for like 6-7 months at least but it seems to be coming along nicely now that I'm doing my weekly dermarolling/Lithium Chloride again. I've also just started applying Minoxidil 15% on the temples once a day, in addition to my daily Minoxidil 5% (so I'm hitting my temples/hairline twice) but it's too early to tell if that is helping or not. I have noticed an uptick in the amount of hairs I'm shedding around that area, which I usually take as a sign of good things to come, but time will tell. I have vellus hair extending down to literally a NW0 now. I'd say my terminal hairline is still about a NW1.5, but I have hairs in the NW1 area which are at some stage in between vellus and terminal. They're cosmetically significant, I think. When I can afford to do so, I was also going to add Stemoxydine and Valproic acid into my regimen and see if that helps. Worst case scenario, none of this pushes my hairline where I want it to be and I either wait for something like Histogen or I get a small FUE of 1000-2000 grafts to fill in my temples and create a female hairline. I'd rather not have to do that though.

    That looks quite a bit better than your initial photos. Is it the same hair length?

    I'd say you're definitely getting regrowth. Any side effects?

    This has become my favorite in-context reply to any discussion thread ever.

    BTW, @Dnpuntold , that regrowth looks fantastic!

    Dropped everything
    The only thing I'm on is 1mg of finasteride/Ed
    for about mby 4-5 months ,currently I'm considering giving minoxidil another shot with my temples .If all else fails either a small transplant or a partial hair system
