I want to know what happens if — after being on finasteride and minoxidil for many years, you just stop using them. This isn't because I'm thinking of doing this myself, but I'm just interested to know in the science. Let's say a NW1 18-year-old started daily finasteride/minoxidil treatment up until he was 30. For some reason, he can't be bothered anymore and decides to stop both. What would happen? I know in the case of finasteride, your hair is meant to revert back to its usual state after six months. The thing that I want to know is if all those hairs he was destined to lose in his late teens and early 20s would drop out in quick time. After all, if your DHT levels go up by 70%, combined with the susceptibility these follicles have, would a NW1 suddenly become a NW4?
