Hey guys, I really really do not want to lose my hair, at this rate I will need to shave my head within 2 years. I am very skinny. Right now, I am able to style my hair forward and to the side to hide it. I want the top of my head to increase in hair again, like when I was a teen..... I used to smoke ciggarettes, and was hard on my body in my party days. I feel like I used to be malnurished.
for the last 2 years I am now taking good vitamins, multi, fishoil, biotin, use a expensive shampoo. I just used a 1mm dermaroller last night, and a 1.5mm will arrive next week. I plan to buy a small massager and use it as well.
I am here to ask, for my hair type what should I buy, minox, fin, dut, etc? I will provide updates if we can get me a solution.

I feel like you guys are more knowledgable than a doctor honestly... They just read books and its not real experiences.

If you want to see a real hair loss specialist you should visit a hair transplant surgeon, they have the most experience. As for your options, you only really have finasteride and minoxidil. Fin is usually most effective and for most acts to keep what you have or slow down the loss, or for those who are lucky, some regrowth. IMO stick to brand name finasteride as I've read numerous threads where people had good results on brand name but then when they switched to generic they started to lose hair.
Also if I were you I'd probably try finasteride first for 12 months and then if you really need to, go on minoxidil. I say this for two reasons, 1) minoxidil isn't nearly as effective in terms of responders, 2) if you are like me, I find it a greater hassle to put that stuff on my head once or twice a day, it's much easier just taking a pill. Btw don't worry about getting side effects or paying attention to some horror stories you find on the internet, the chance for getting any side effects are not high.

Thanks for the reply. I am taking this serious and just ordered 90 propecia pills from a hopefully not shady website. I even spent an extra $10 for faster airmail delivery. I plan to take .2 per day at first. I know I have a bad head shape and atleast one mole so I never want to shave my head. Hopefully I can slow DHT.

I went to walmart and spent $30 on a massager. It came with 6 different head atachmen's and one is perfect for the scalp. Gave myself a 30 minute massage and my head had a legit orgasam! It spread down to my body and was like I was on fire. There are studies showing that massages to the scalp help hair grow. I am convinced. It has been almost 45 minutes since I used it and my head and face is still tingly!

I thought I bought 90 propecia pills, but it turned out to charge my account for $250 instead of $60... I am going to talk to my bank about it... Does anyone know where I can buy this medicine online? I am from the USA, I need it quick!
