That's true, the before pictures were meant to show how crappy the hair was - the latest ones were me trying to look good for going out. Bottom line though, when I stopped, I noticed it gradually deteriorated on the temples. Quite noticeably actually. Now I'm back on and plan on making it a daily routine thing. The foam is easy because it doubles as a mousse or gel very well. I'm also going to only wash the top of my head with nizoral to avoid the irritation all over my scalp. Thanks again.
