Howzit guys i decided today to post my results which may get updated again in future (with a new post ofcourse). Im not saying my results are amazing or crazy good, but one thing i can say is that THERE IS DEFINITE IMPROVEMENT! My hairline has improved and i cant see my scalp so much anymore. Other people have noticed it to. My temples is still a N2 or N3 but it looks so much fuller now.
My back story is i always had really sorta thin straight hair which was pretty think in the front, never in my wildest imagination did i think id turn into one of these ugly bald guys(no offense to anyone haha).
I probably started balding at around 20 or 21, it might have been by 19 already but you dont notice it yet. Anyway it definitely started to become very noticable and i couldnt even hide it anymore- it made me hella deppressed and affected my life big time. I joined this forum some years ago hoping for a cure but the financial cost of a hait transplant was just not an option and i unfortunately had not done any research into minoxidil or finastide
So fast forward a few years of not doing anything and silently wishing id just die- ive decided to fight . Im now 25 and had lost alot ground around my temple areas , I'd say N3 or 4 maybe.
In March 2019 i bought some 5% generic minoxidl(cheapie) and started taking that 2x daily . After i showered in the morning with slightly damp scalp- drying my hair and then applying minoxidil really made my hair look crappy so i do it while its wet , and then in the late evening. By April i had begun taking Biotin and Zinc tablets daily aswell. Nothing changed much in the start but i did notice much less hair falling off in the shower , less breakage and my hair just felt stronger. I then purchased a dermaroller and dermapen(cheapie the MYM pen on Ebay) around May.
I only started dermarolling around June and not consistently, 1.75m x once weekly.
It was painful at first and a bit of blood but its hard to draw blood now( as if my scalp has gotten used to it). I can see lots of tiny new hairs on my temples, it looks denser and fuller then in the beginning of the year.
I currently apply minoxidil only at night every day now and dermaroll at mild 1mil before applying minoxidil. I still dermaroll at 1.75 most weekends on Saterday
minoxidil 5% once daily
DermaRolling mild rolling every day and 1.75 once a week
Biotin and zinc tablets everyday
One last thing id like to add - get a decent haircut. It will make the world of difference, even if you have to cut it more often to keep it looking proper. Its definitely boosted my confidence again loads.

Pretty good. I just hope you assess the androgen issue before gains start to fade.
Btw, how mild is mild, when it comes to pressing on the daily routine? I assume it's a 2mm dermaroller or 1.75mm and you press.. how deep? how do you know how deep it goes? its the problem I see with doing it daily without a a dermapen where you have full control of deepness or at least a roller with nails as long as you want to penetrate tops (so for instance a roll with 0.25mm nails if that's as deep as you want to go)
