View Full Version : Minoxidil 2nd shed @ 6 months?

Hey guys. Does anyone know if second sheds with minoxidil are common? I had a shed when I started using it that drastically reduced my density, but within a few months I had more than made up for it. My hair was thick again. Now here at 6 months my density has taken a huge hit once again.

Does this sound like a second shed or have the meds stopped working already? I should add that I've been on fin for over a year now.

If minox worked as well as you say there's no way it would lose it's effectiveness after just 6 months. I've been on minox for 5 years and I have sheds every now and then (every year and a half or so). Even now I'm just starting to recover from a 2 month shed from over summer. Occasional sheds are something you need to get used to when on minox.

Thanks for the response Michael! Yeah it would be weird for it to have lost effectiveness after giving me so much density back just a few months ago. I essentially have lost almost all of my gains in the past month... I'm hoping for a quick recovery.
