    I used it for 10 years, and I didn't lose any hair.... until they switched to a Chinese supplier. Now I am shedding like a dog.

    Nothing. No product, no concealer, nothing. It's all camera angles and lighting. I need to chill out for a while and see where this goes. It is possible that I never recovered from the shed of not having the S5 cream at all. And now that I am on an even better topical anti androgen, I am quickly growing back the most recent lost hair. Time will tell. My hair is a damn rollercoaster right now.

    I've been on S5 plus cream since early July 2017. It has done NOTHING for my hair. Don't waste money, folks. Stick to the Big 3 and hope you maintain as long as you can for some miracle cure.

    Another quick update. Right now it seems like I hit a massive shed a year ago from stopping S5. Going back on the chinese S5 did nothing, and I rode it out for 8 months and just kept shedding and shedding. The topical minoxidil / finasteride I am now on seems to have stopped the massive shed, and I'm hoping I get everything back from the past year. Still too early to tell, but I have a strong positive outlook. Either way, bottom line, new S5 is junk. Now matter how I look at it right now, my hair looks better than the pics from late last year.

    Do you mind sharing which Topical finasteride/Min you're using? Getting any side effects?

    I'm looking at either giving Morr-F a go or using the Hasson & Wong topical along with some Minoxidil (probably the spray Rogaine), but finding it hard to get many indications from real people that it's working as planned.

    Ok guys finally time to post some good news. So basic rundown... was on S5 cream + minoxidil for 10 years, maintaining well. Stopped S5 because they stopped making it, bought the "alternative" water spray. Started shedding bad. Chinese S5 cream came out, bought that, never stopped shedding after 8 grueling months. Switched to essengen 6 2x a day from minoxidil max (topical finasteride + minoxidil). Shedding stopped within a couple weeks, and regrew everything from the previous 8 month shed. I keep looking at pics from last Summer until Christmas, and there is no doubt now, my hair was really bad, and now it looks freaking awesome. The wife and barber even noticed. She grabbed a handful of hair and said "your hair feels THICK." Check it out. Looking like 2009 up in here.

    The comparison photo has my hairline covered, so I brushed it over to the side as much as I could, trying to expose in direct lighting. The result is the same! It doesn't even look like the same head.

    Awesome results mate. Nice one - and props for sharing some actual photos.

    I think you might have answered this elsewhere so apologies if I'm doubling up on a question; but did you get any of the dreaded finasteride sides, and do you think the 0.05% finasteride is enough to maintain the minoxidil regrowth?

    Bro, your hair bounced back very well. Great job on the latest comparison photos. You style your hair in a way that shows no male pattern baldness. What products do u use for styling?

    I guess you don't live in the states since you can order the essegen, I tried and it won't let me.

    What other products do u use besides essegen and at what frequency?

    Thanks

    I don't use any product, just the essengen. If you message them on the site, they will send it to you! I live in the US.
