Basically the same old story as before. I'm 21 years old, and am definitely experiencing mpb. I've essentially known I would be screwed eventually because my mother has thinning hair, but I wasn't expecting it at such a young age.
I had tried propecia/nizoral, and had results, but unfortunately I had experienced some side effects. But no worries, they have all since disappeared. I had also used equate minodoxil 5% shortly after ending my propecia regimen, but I experienced a large amount of flaking and bad scalp itch, so I also discontinued that.
From the images attached, I was just curious as to how long people would probably estimate that will last, or if I should just suck it up and go for the shaved/buzzed look (which is a big jump considering I have always been someone known for having a mop of hair, and the lady seems to prefer me having my hair how it is, hah)
And, I was also just curious if using rogaine foam would reduce the experience of flakiness/itchiness ? Being a poor college student, I don't just wanna invest in the $50 price tag or whatever it is.
I wouldn't say I'm depressed over the entire situation, as I've have seen some people legitimately depressed over their hair loss. However, I am conscious of it, and will more than often wear a hat when I go out. I'm basically the only one of my friends experience mph to this degree, and I would say it's more frustrating than anything
Thanks for any advice!
