View Full Version : Your opinion, if you don't mind

Just wanted to ask the question that is very common on here but your opinion please, do you think I should look into Rogaine with these pictures and do you think that product would help that situation? Just not sure if this is thinning or balding. I thought it kind of looks like the hair roots are starting to thin. My wife seriously thinks that I'm insane and says that I'm seeing things. Thank you!

I don't see anything to be concerned about in the pic you provided. A

As far as your wife's response to your concerns. Our loved ones are a major contributor to men going bald. They make use believe we are seeing things thus delaying treatment for years.

Thank you greatly for your response. I agree what you are saying about our loved ones, they love us and want us to have a negative esteem about ourselves. Thank you again for your taking a moment. Just one quick question, does Rogaine honestly thicken your hair up or even give your hair shafts volume or does it not really work like that?

Thank you again.

I could be wrong but from what I understand, minoxidil is a growth stimulant. It can thicken and regrow hair, but on its' own is a usually a temporary fix. Hair loss is caused by DHT attacking the hair follicle and unless you do something about that hair loss will continue.

Unless you are sure you are balding, I wouldn't use anything. It might make your situation worse.
