View Full Version : How to start up - RU/Fin?

07-22-2013, 02:09 AM

I'm 27 years old and i first noticed my hair starting to thin around a year ago.
At first it was mainly a diffuse thinning but now my temples are receding aswell.

I'm currently using the Nizoral shampoo but i'm very unsure as to which treatment i should try.
Fin feels very scary to me so i was thinking if RU was a legit option. So my question is: Are the sides from RU less frequent than those from fin? Is it stupid to consider RU before trying fin?

Thank you in advance.

Given that RU is not tested extensively on humans and is not approved for use, nor has it shown to be more effective than fin, with no long term safety data, and the actual dosage is unknown, and you'll likely need to source it from some lab off market...why do you feel RU is safer than fin?

I'm not saying RU is bad (in theory it should be very good), just trying to get an understanding of your internal logic so to speak.

I suppose it's a matter of knowing that fin has potential awful sides and hoping RU does not. Which was also why i was trying to hear about the known RU sides from some of the users currently on it. :)
I'm also more keen on applying something directly to the hair area rather than taking a pill that affects the entire body (that might be flawed logic but it seems less "damaging" to me)
