I just wanted to share my progress and experience in treating my hair loss.

1 year ago I decided to put an end to the hair loss and started researching on the subject. Here is the thread I started with pics of my hair then: http://www.baldtruthtalk.com/showthread.php?t=7313
I had slow hair loss, scalp itching and redness which has been going on for 4+ years.

I'll try to do a good breakdown and review of the products I used:

Status of hair on 14.01.2012

Nizoral ( Jan 2012 - Sept 2012)
2 times a week and left on for 3-4 minutes. It was supposed to help my scalp to stop itching but it didn't.

Alpicort F ( Feb 2012 - August 2012 )
3 times a week. Recommended by a local dermatologist. Had no effect.

Revalid Capsules ( Feb 2012 - Apr 2012 )
2 Capsules daily. Recommended by a local dermatologist. (expensive as hell) Had no effect.

Recommended by a local dermatologist - stopped visiting a dermatologist.

Logona Daily Care Shampoo Bio-Aloe & Verveine ( Jun 2012 - present )
I wash my hair every morning with it. As soon as I stopped using Nizoral, my hair stopped itching and the redness was gone. I recommended it to my mother and she said her hair stopped falling too. I can't contribute any stopping of hairloss because of the shampoo because I started using Rogaine roughly the same time when I stopped Nizoral. Although Rogaine is supposed to only stimulate hair growth rather than prevent hair loss.

Minoxidil foam ( Sept 2012 - present )
I got myself a 3 month supply of Rogaine foam and I gradually started to build up to the correct dosage. My gf began noticing positive effects around beginning of December (start of 3rd month). At the end of 3rd month my parents were noticing an improvement too. After I finished the Rogaine supply I got Kirkland's foam and I'm currently using it. I haven't experienced any change in how my hair reacts to the new brand.

It's not completely covered but I like the direction in which it's going. :)

I hope this can be of use to somebody.
