View Full Version : 24 male not sure what to do.

Hey guys new here, let me start off by saying I have done a lot of research as many do and I am in that confused state which many end up in. I am unsure of whether or not I should start up on propecia.

Let me give you a back round.

I am 24 and one of those guys who always had the long hair, I have pictures I will be showing. It has basically been my signature feature all my life, this is why its very frustrating for me.

Up until about 2 years ago I experienced no hair loss at all. Then it seemed like in a span of about 6 months it just went to shit. Receding hairline and very thing hair at the top. Then after the 6 months of hair loss it stopped, and now for the passed year and a half I have not experienced any more loss or any gain. That is weird to me as to why it didn't keep getting worse.

So in that time I basically just bitched and moaned as to how this could happen to me, I always had great thick long hair, blah blah blah. Skip to now, I have decided to take as much action as possible, if it isn't already too late. I went to a dermatologist, but I feel like she didn't care and just shuffled me in, said get on propecia and rogaine, and shuffled me out. Didn't really explore any other options or possible causes. Waited 30 minutes for about a 3 minute conversation with the Dr.

Anywho, I was just curious if any of you have any input that you would deem useful for someone in my position. I am of course worried about possible side effects because obviously people who get them are the ones who complain the most and for the majority who don't, don't bother writing about it.

here are pictures, obviously the older ones are just regular old pictures and not close ups because I had no reason for that.

and I hope you enjoy my facial expressions.

to give information per picture,

long hair is about 2 and a half years ago
short hair one is about 2 years ago, I cut it short for work
and the other 2 are current

It looks like you've lost quite a bit on your crown. I would get on medication or buzz it if I where you. It looks like you have a nice head shape and the shorter your hair is the less noticeable the hair loss looks :)

You have a chance to regrow most, if you lucky all your hair back. My suggestions to you are simple don't leave it too late.

1. Finesteride
2. Minoxidol, get 5% to start with and get some azelaic acid flakes.
3. Regenepure DR and NT or Revita although I prefer regenepure, use daily.
4. Supplement or good diet, ideally biotin but be carefull too much can cause acne.

theuberleet im much further gone than you, but i can agree with Jazz that

1. Regenepure works wonders for the scalp!
2. Low carb diet and biotin can really help.

You are lucky you still have a good mane, im almost completely bald...but i would get on a regimen soon!

ok i will start with rogaine foam and propecia

i do not want to fear monger but if i do get sides, what is the usual time period for them to be noticed.

What's the low down on Regenpure? Is it something that appears to work? Or something that actually does work - what are the considered benefits?

JCM i really like regenepure...you feel it really clean your scalp. It definitely does work, but i wont go as far to say it alone can regrow or hold onto your hair.

Its important to use cause it wipes away DHT and unclogs pores, so your folliclees can breathe. Recommend trying it, i liked it better than nizoral.
