    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    Hey...

    I've been thinning since Junior High for crying out loud. I am now a senior and have been on Propecia for a little over a month. My hair was seeming to do just a tad better, by not seeing as much of it falling out during the day and what not.

    Hairloss is depressing as heck. I have to constantly go to the bathroom between classes and make sure the bald spots are covered up! I wear my hair sorta long anyway, so it helps but when I graduate I can't wait to shave it.

    I would not take Avodart. Propecia elimenates 70% of the DHT in your body and Avodart eimenates 95% of the DHT but is only marginally better at reducing DHT on your scalp (very slightly). DHT is a hormone you need. They left they FDA trials for hair loss on Avodart. They claim low sides like gyno and sexual disfunction, but these two will be high with so little DHT. Removing this much DHT is a very bad idea. Putting this drug out like it is all the answers to stop hair loss, was a very bad idea.

    How about other restoration products like the OTC brand ointments, washes etc like Rogain for example? Anyone have experienc with stuff like that? Is there anything that will actually re-grow hair? My concern is mainly keeping what I have, but would also like to re-gain some if possible?

    You must use rogaine and you must take propecia. not the generic if you smoke 420, it will give you panic attacks and mimic a fake heart attack! scary shitz! these medicines are the only fda approved solutions for hair loss. the idea keep what you have and regrow some back. And if you can afford go to bosley medical and get hair replacement surgery. Full amount 2000 - 2300 grafts $10,000. I promise it worked wonders for me!!!! i can have 2 more of these full amount surgeries over my lifetime! Bosley gave me my confidence back! it really works! amazing technology!

    I didnt know this was SWM thread. That just changed everything for me. You need to go to http://www.minoxidil.com/ . This is hands down the best place for hair loss stuff. Get yourself a script for Proscar (aka Finasteride), this comes in a 5mg tab that can be broken up into 4s (no more isnt better lol ). Plus most insurance plans view it for prostate probs, so it is covered by most insurances, Propecia it cosmetic (even though they are both Finasteride). Propecia is more cosstly, lower dose, and likely not covered by insurance.
    At minoxidil.com get some 940 Xandrox15 LIQUID without Propylene Glycol, 125 mL for morning application and the 600 Standard Xandrox 5%, 65 mL for night. Xandrox is a mixture of minoxidil (rogaine) and azelaic acid. Minoxidil is a potassium channel-k opener, IOW it makes hair grow faster. Azelaic acid blocks DHT 100%. With minoxidil you may see some initial shedding, depending on what phase a hair follicle is in. Also shampoo at night with 420 Regrowth Treatment Shampoo 4 Oz, it contains 2% ketocanzole and 3% salicylic acid which aids in keto penetration but helps keep the scalp from drying out too. Keto inhibits the formation of DHT. If it dries out your scalp too much, 3x's a week is fine.
    My last weapon in my arsonel is http://www.lasercomb.net/ . I fully expect to get laughed at for this, but the thing is dang effective. I see lots of people hating on this, but they are using it alone. The thing doesnt stop DHT, which tells me it cant be used alone and people saying it sucks are using alone.
    Hair growth is slow, so give it 6 months before you expect to see anything. I myself saw results in 1 month. You can still be having results for the next 3 years. Once a hair follicle is gone, its is gone. Treatment will not help it. The point of this is to keep the hair you have. Good luck.

    I've heard that Kevis(aka Scamis) is basically shampoo and lotion with Hyaluronic acid, and considered a scam, ripoff, etc. People on hairloss forums that have used it say it does nothing. $1100 per year, and it doesn't work!

    I like to check out hairlosshelp.com's forums for the latest on this subject, but there are others that are also good. There is tons experience there with much less expensive treatments that are working for them.

    My hair regimen is 5% minoxidil once per day, and .33 mg finasteride once per day. My hair did improve a lot when I started this, and got to the point where there aren't any thin areas, but my hairline didn't improve much. It's been a couple of years and things have been steady. Who knows, maybe I'll read up on the latest and change my program.

    I buy generic proscar called fincar and dissolve it in liquor to get the .33mg dose. I also add 10mg of finasteride to 60ml generic minoxidil. My monthly cost is well under $10.

    I'm balding and it sucked at first. Now, I don't give a crap anymore. The only thing I hate is people calling me a freakin' basketball player every three seconds.
