Better, worse, same.

6 months: http://i.imgur.com/poupL3B.jpg

Same lights, same hair length (right after #5 shave)

Also I have been shedding a lot more hairs lately, is a second rogaine shed possible? If so how long does it last? I'm getting scared hair is looking thinner sometimes.

your crown looks slightly denser than your baseline photo. I'm at approximately 5 1/2 months on rogaine myself and haven't noticed an improvement yet, but supposedly it can take up to 12 months to know if the drug is working for you. if you aren't experiencing any side effects, I suggest just keeping up with your regimen and reevaluate. I haven't had a second shed yet, but my first shed was fairly intense at around 1 1/2 months.

That initial shedding period scars most away.
