View Full Version : Using minoxidil- starting to lose hair from places I never used to

Hi, I have been on it for 6 months now. I did not go through any shed when I started it, but I noticed that I was losing visibly less hair in the shower within a month. But fast forward to 5 months and I think I seem to be losing as much as I used to, only now it's also from the backs and sides. I never used to lose it from there, so I don't apply it there.

I am 29, and I am beginning to bald diffusely through the centre of my hair at the front and top. But yeah, I am only at the start tbh, norwood 0 still technically.

Doesn't this seem strange? Hair is supposed to be stubborn and stronger in these areas. I can't remember EVER running my hand through these areas and having any come out, but now it is another story. I am strongly suspecting that the minoxidil is the cause here. I am talking about the occipital region as well here, the lower back, wtf.
