Hi guys. I'm 17 years old and I have male pattern baldness (which has been confirmed by a dermatologist). I have a receding hairline (NW2), but no thinning actually (only around hairline). She described me minoxidil. Now I'm wondering what the best options are. I was thinking about a dermaroller, maybe minoxidil (afraid of side effects), nizoral, lasercomb and a mix of essential oils (peppermint, rosermary, lavender ...). Are there better alternatives for these or is this good? Which weekly regimen would you suggest? edit: I don't want to take finasteride.
