I'm Jeff. I'm 26 and started losing hair around the age of 22 or so. I had long hair then and just brushed it off. I cut my hair shorter a little over a year ago and then the hair loss seemed to accelerate. I started using Bosley shampoo. Which doesn't work. (does anybody have any luck with Bosley?) I took Propecia 1 mg for awhile then quit because I kept reading on the internet it causes ED and thought I would rather be bald then have ED. I started back up again and i also use Rogaine 5% foam. I was a pretty confident guy until a year ago. Gain a couple pounds and lose some hair and it really shoots your self esteem right in the foot. I read so much on the internet and have absolutely no idea what to believe works and doesn't work. I stumbled across this forum and here I am. I'm balding on the crown of my head and around the temples andd would rate myelf on the Norwood Scale (which i never knew of till now) a 3V or 4. Is there any shampoo that would help with Propecia and Rogaine? vitamins? fitness? Just looking for some answers or advice. I sometimes consider hair transplants but don't know if thats extreme or even works or if i'm a candidate. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
