View Full Version : Propecia for Regrowth

Hey Everyone:

Just wanted to get some general feedback about Propecia and its effectiveness on growing hair back and the timeline as well.

I'm a male in my mid-forties. I started the Propecia treatment late and only got started one year and three months ago. I started losing hair in my late thirities, slowly, but by the time I was on Propecia I was NW 3 or 4 the front part of my crown I would say good 2 inches in were going bald very fast.

After a year on finisteride, I began to see regrowth. I now hair all over the are where I was losing hair but the density has not built up yet.

My questions to the members:

1. If I stay on finsteride, would I gain greater density or do I have to get hair transplant to get real density?

2. How long would it take for me to gain the density that would match other parts of my crown?

Thanks in advance,

There is no cut and dry yes or no answer to baldness. You need to try it to fins out how it works for you.

But, if your not losing hair then you could be growing it, this is what propecia does. Take hair vitamins like biotin, magnesium oil topical, caffiene power, vit c powder. Thats what I do in addition to fin. Seems to help.

Yeah. Propecia has worked wonders for me. At the time of getting my first prescription for it, I was shedding like crazy, and I was feeling hopeless. I put off being on them because of side effect fears, but I haven't had any so far. Knock on wood!

I heard that biotin was good so I've been on it since almost two years ago. I will try magnesium oil, caffeine powder, and vitamin c powder. So with the caffeine and vit. c powder, do you just take them orally? And also, where do you get them, online or brick and mortar retail?

Thank for your help, btw.

I made a thread about using all those ingredients and put them in a little bottle with a dropper. The threads around here.

I still take MSM and biotin, fish oil, multis etc orally.

But yeah, the vit c powder is acerola, its the edible kind, just found it in my moms kitchen.
I use water and everclear to mix it with.
Then i ordered pure caffeine powder for $10 on ebay.
I found the magnesium oil too.
I want to add emu oil i hear its good.
I redently added a few drops of tea tree oil.
I want to maybe put a dash of cayenne pepper.

I figure all these thing in addition to my fin and dut that i take orally will help! It has to Id guess!
The caffeine id say is a great growth tool, and the other stuff is like super vitamins for the hair.
