    Hey! So for about the past year I have been reading these forums but never joined. I joined up today to show my progress though :). If you want back story I have a post in the introduction area but as for here I'm just gonna give you the raw facts and pictures.

    started balding around 20. I'm now 24. Been using propecia for just under a full year. Been Using Revivogen, Tricomin and Nizoral for 6 months. Started using Rogaine Foam about 2 months ago. About 6 months ago I had my worst shed yet. thats what prompted me to start getting serious about this and I have taken pictures every single week for the past 24 weeks. For time sake though I'll show you week 1, week 12, and week 24. Tell me honestly what you think about the progress. If the progress keeps up like this for the next 6 months I'll be doing pretty damn good I think :).

    A quick note about the pictures. I brushed my hair in a way that would show the balding spots the best, used no hair products, was in a room with bright lights and used a flash on my camera. ( and also dyed my hair black 3 weeks before the last pictures )

    Week 1, 12, and 24 Full front shot

    Congrats man.
    Same frontal baldness like mine.

    Me 32 years old though...a bit late realizing it.

    Just bought Nizoral and Pregaine and no finasteride.
    Hope it works since some of us here did succeed without finasteride and either with Rogaine + Nizoral, Rogaine alone, Rogaine and finasteride or big3.

    What do you think contributed the most to the regrowth? If I am correct you have been on rogaine for 2 months. That wouldn't give those results in that short of time would it? Either way you are a lucky SOB.

    probably the rogaine. really doubt propecia would give regrowth results like that and hes been on it a year

    read again. there's a big difference between wk1 and wk12, which is before he even started the rogaine.

    The final results are a little deceiving considering you dyed your hair, but you still tell that you made great progress. You must be extremely happy right now.

    Would dying his hair black actually create the illusion of more hair? I've heard people say this, but I don't think it's true. Surely if the hair is black and the scalp is white then the contrast between the two would make any thinning more apparent than usual?

    Nice results man, maybe I should get on Propecia right now.. I have black hair as my natural color with a white scalp, seems like with the thinning I can cover it up better having darker hair then shades of brown.

    Yeah, if you read my post I dyed my hair black a couple weeks before the last pictures were taken. I did that because I originally got my hair streaked by a profressional and she botched the crap out of it. I had spots on one side of my head and looked like a skunk on the top so I said screw that and dyed it black. The results are real no matter what color my hair is. the pictures are well lit and I used a flash and my scalp is still white ;-). I'll take follow up pictures in another 2 months or so when the color has grown out to see if black hair really does covor it up better.
