    I know I've replied to you before, but man, what a turn around without a hardcore regimen. Never gets old saying that. This comment of yours got to me and how you avoided taking pictures when baldness struck aggressively, it's not nice seeing yourself in that state and social media. Good full hair days ahead! You've encouraged a lot of new people on here with sincere advice and motivational pictures. Well done lad. You look younger too on the first page. I'm aware the same person negged every post of yours (banned a while ago) and I'm dealing with it. As a poster with a story like this should in particular be free from it in his own thread.

    Such a natural result and why not, it's all your native hair, never give up attitude!

    @Somebody ; you are lucky to be exactly the archetype of " the respoonder " to medications
    Even if the minoxidil/dermaroller combo allow you to get great regrowth, I really think that the building block of your sucess through the years was the fact that you were a great responder to finasteride .
    And we can see this with your first month result .

    if you respond to propecia during the first year of treatment you are basically saved for 10 years !
    @Somebody ; during you short try of dutasteride you didn't get more result than with fina ? in terms of thickening ?

    Responds as in regrowth? My shedding probably stopped by 80% if not more 2 weeks into finasteride but things turned to shit when I added minoxidil and the possibility of finasteride losing it's effect after 6 months lol. While Finasteride decreased my shedding dramatically, not a single strand of hair was restored.

    if there is regrowth you are sure responding .
    But just maitenance and slight thickening of existing hair is also a really good sign

    Ok. I found bloodwork I did in 27.01.11 that was when I had extreme scalp inflammation. At that time I had been on propecia since October 2008. In November 2010, was start of inflammation problem.
    Timeline great regrow from propecia alone from Oct 2008 to Oct 2010 and inflammation afterwords.
    I'm going to take a new test when I'm back in Asia. I wiped my name from sample, but most of you can find me anyway at my facebook profile.

    Hard to say since I have not had the same problem myself.

    Yes, I have about the same. The number has remained constant, even when I had powerful re-growth in 2014

    Thanks. Hair loss caused me to become very unmotivated. I also self-sabotage myself at that time. Depressed, incredibly negative, angry, overweighted, etc. Propecia was a life saver. My problem at that time was that hair where huge part of my identity.

    Hair loss is not easy subject. I can understand that it can be frustrerated. By having been myself in very negative state of mind in past, I don't take it seriously.

    Thanks

    Yes, I did respond well to propecia no doubt about that

    Yes. But those side effects I got where unacceptable....

    Propecia is also my life saver and has banished all my worries. Truly magical for me. I don't know how I'd be without it. I'd be depressed but continuing like a zombie. It allowed me to keep all my hair and a transplant took me to thick and full.

    No. I was on it just few month.

    Not yet. I plan to do it now in April

    Awesome, that it did worked out for you.

    I can add from my story line, its kind of success, failure, success, failure then finally success. For me giving up was never an option!

    Why does it say vietnam in there? you lived in vietnam?

    Unfortunately I cannot see any hormones there which would be the interesting part I think. I can see the thyroid hormone which seemed to be in range, maybe this helped the propecia to work.
    No DHT, testosterone or estrogen levels tho... maybe in Vietnam is too difficult to find? Here in France I can get the required hormones easily, I check from time to time to see how I respond to treatments. It would be good if you can get a full hormonal profile for us to check. We must see DHT, free and total T, estrogen, prolactin, progesteron and the rest, and also all the thyroid hormones as well, everything matters in hairloss.

    What is ur opinion of high strength minoxidil like 12.5% that belgravia center sells. They have a lot of pictures showing helps regrowth at the front in their patients.

    Yes, sure it helps, it's a stonger version. But how about side effects? Also does it contain propylene? My results come by using 5%, and taking different approche to it. If one gets results from 5% I think it's much safer to stick with it.

    P.S I add my instagram photo

    Hi Alex,
    Any opinion on acetyl-L-carnitine for inflammation? I've read that it can help itching and burning scalp.

    Hey, how are you? No, haven't used L-carnitine. My inflammation have been under control for long time now and it hasn't been necessary to test other products. A friend of me is taking it, to increase memory, he said it has good effect for his mind. I think he takes a ala and carnitine combo.
