View Full Version : Is miniaturisation ever halted?

I've tired everything but my hair continues to thin.

I've heard it said often that MPB often accelerates and then stops for a period. My question is that if your hair shows signs of miniaturisation will it automatically continue until the hair falls out or can it stay dormant in its miniaturised state for a period (of years?) before you finally lose it?

There is no answer to that. I mean it can do anything it wants. It could speed up, slow down, stop or anything else. If it starts I would not bet on it ever stopping by itself although its probably possible in some cases. Most of the time I think it just keeps going if its MPB

It is true it can go in any direction. In general, hair loss may slow but never stops until it reaches your pre- determined / destined pattern.

Minox and fin. This is a lifetime battle if we wish to wage it.

At some point, hair transplants may be in order for many if not most of us. But hopefully the drugs keep working.
