using minoxidil for years, id shed maybe 10 or so hair a day. now its like 30 a day at least trying to figure out what happened. i do smoke, not sure if that is also a cause. i bought a lazer treatment cap in march, been using since april. i am beginning to think this is the cause because i dont remember shedding this much prior to buying the cap. is this possible? id like to see this through for the 6 months because supposedly i should see positive results by then (end of september) but im not sure now. thinking about returning the cap now also, i started using finasteride 4 days out of a week like a month ago thinkign that would help. i think its still too early to tell if it will work. if it does i wont be sure if its the finasteride helping or the lazer treatment cap finally doing its job.
