About80-85% of my hair maintained yes. I started to have hair loss Very early about at the age of 15 years old. I’m about to start as well avodart (dutasteride) 0.5 mg, I just don’t know how to get it in the UK. I never had any side effects for any pills. Minoxidil I applied 10 years ago for about 6-7 month it was 12.5% and I lost a lot of hair and I was afraid to keep using it. I will have about 5000 grafts FUE in May and I’m so excited. Trying to find ways to make my hair stronger.
