    You've defeated your hair loss. Congrats. Most guys are not in the same boat as you and will not accept it as you have. For those guys a decision needs to be made. Get on proven meds or accept losing your hair.

    I'm one of those people, I don't know I figured that what triggered it was what I was eating and the weight lifting.

    I know once I started eating healthy (lost 20 lbs) and stopped lifting weights and started doing more cardio and started using healthier better shampoo I feel like it stopped. Maybe I'm wrong, but even if I am I figure that by the time I'll be bald I won't mind it anymore. I'm 24 right now.

    Also I know that weight lifting is probably what caused my hairthinning. My mom told me that no one in our family had hairloss except for my uncle who weight lifted. And I remember that once I started weight lifting, I got a bit of hair in my upper back (immediately) where I built new muscle. It also makes me a lot hornier lol

    At the end of the day it's just hair on your head, not that big of a deal, be glad you're healthy and have a fullfillign life. Appreciate what you do have and enjoy the little things, stop crying about things you can't control. The people that matter won't mind and the people that do mind don't matter.

    1) there is a poster called kirkby on here who lost a drastic amount of hair after hopping on fin. Went into a never ending shed.

    2) Cognitive sides - brain fog worries me. I am required to have a clear mind due to work.

    3) I am hoping histogen would hurry up. My HL being slow - I am hoping that it will hold out until then, they I will get a HT and top up from histogen.

    4) I dont like the idea of playing around with my hormones.

    5) I AM PISSED FIN IS THE ONLY THING ON THE MARKET

    I mean guys who are NW1.5-3 who easily have enough hair worth saving, but refuse to take fin or dut (usually fear of sides). Do you not realize you are worried enough to be on a hair loss forum, yet you are giving up without a fight?
    If you do not realize, then here- YOU ARE GIVING UP YOUR HAIR

    There are guys on this forum who would love to be in your position, to have the choice to take these drugs, as they watch you complain about baldness while you are simultaneously letting it happen.
    tbh you kind of owe these guys an apology.

    Do you even realize you have a huge advantage over like 95% of balding men? Most guys never understand MPB well enough to effectively stop it. They just f*ck around until one day they are like NW3 + diffuse, then start inconsistently rubbing rogaine into their scalps, then at NW4 start "researching" (ie surfing Wikipedia & randomly ordering crap like saw palmetto or nettle root). Then they hit NW5, realize they are f*cked for life, and just give in. Just settle down with some hillbilly lady in a rundown, ranch style house with nothing but cable TV to look forward to every weekend

    Meanwhile I see guys who are like NW1.5-2, who can easily avoid all this, posting about MPB on hair loss forums yet too scared to take fin/dut. Well done wasting your advantage. Congratulations, you are more aware than like 19/20 dudes on the street, yet because you spent 30 minutes pissing yourself on PropeciaHelp it means absolutely nothing.

    The worst part? Half of you will end up taking oral inhibs anyway, like 2 Norwood levels after you knew you should have.

    You have 2 possible futures. One is you with hair, one is you bald.

    Do not be the "what-if" guy

    You do realize there is Dutasteride which is three to four times more effective that Finasteride and blocks at least two types of 5AR hair loss enzyme in DHT making it a far more potent DHT blocker.

    I quit Finasteride correction I weaned myself off of Fin after a year and three months seeing no remarkable results and then switched up to Avodart. Holy Crap... in under six months the baby vellus hairs on my crown and vertex darkened and in some cases turn gray by thickened. Since I had no side effects from Fin I figured in was worth the crap shoot and it was most definitely pics will be forthcoming. I was an advanced NW5 into a NW6 and now it looks like I jumped up in levels back steadily to a NW3 due to patience and resolve. Even my ex and the mother of my kids has a lingering stare after me as I leave the door from her place to pick them up with a renewed look on her face of what happened this guy looks better and I have worked out in conjunction with that and lost weight and gained some abs and put a chin up bar in my home. It has given me back a sense of coming back from limbo.

    In a few months I saw far more results than Fin ever showed and on top of that I upped my keto to the medicated 2 percent and got more Minoxidil 5 percent foam and now I see my scalp flaking and shedding for more sensitive skin underneath growing hair. With very little to no shed just growth. Plus I take Biotin a hair growth and nails supplement which has also helped along with black tea.

    Then your sarcasm aside he is f*cked and that is the cold hard truth of it because those are the only options out there today besides of course... a hair transplant costing in the thousands of dollars if you have that kind of cash to shell out.

    Thing like Fin and Dut and RU and CB and all of the like have possible side effects and if you have never tried them and have no intention of ever trying them then the pharmaceutical market as was said in earlier thread is not interested in a cure for MPB. They are interested in giving results that make you the buyer have to keep taking and taking and ingesting whatever it is they market to keep the results you are getting and the reality is that affects your blood chemistry and again that acts against dihydrotestosterone a naturally occurring hormone triggered by genetics to an aggressive level is still going to have side effects major or minor regardless of whatever the product is in theory or in practice. And the moment you stop *poof* you lose everything you attained and may even be worse off than you were when you started.

    I took my risk like everyone else (and rolled the dice late in NW5 land I might add) who was leery and my hormones are fine and for the next man that might not be the case and that is what getting your blood checked and talking to specialists are for to either reinforce your commitment to no meds or to take a chance. Topicals like Minoxidil and ketoconazole are hair boosters but the DHT in your blood serum chermistry as culprits will always be there lurking about. Someone will invent the cure for AIDS and cancer because there is a Nobel Prize in it and making the history books and huge cash in the billions for such things and the adoration of a society free of that blight. Hair loss does not weigh in on that level and as such is and will always be a low priority.

    Time is not on the side of the balding man depending where you are on the Norwood scale and it worsens every month and every year more of your hair sheds. You eventually come to a crossroads where either you decide to do something about it or you shave your hair off and accept your baldness and move on.

    I'm just 17 and I agree with you.

    Started taking Finasteride as soon as I hit Norwood 2. No sides and I don't even care.

    And to the guy afraid of Fin, do you even know what "f***ing with your hormones" really is?

    Go on any anabolic steroids or bodybuilding forum. Read about all the guys planning their cycles. Or just hit the local LA Fitness or Gold's Gym and see them for yourself.

    And you're scared of Finasteride?

    Lol.

    Yes. Either take the risk because that is the front line of what is out there to fix the problem or don't and accept what is and shave your hair down and leave it at that. The whining about the black tea and the saw palmetto and all of those other useless placebos and your hair still falling out and receding.. well guess what you haven't impacted the process at all.

    Balding is a combination of an imbalance of hormones and genetic triggers combined with androgen sensitive hair receptors locked under the hair follicle to cause shrinking and fallout of hair. You are interrupting the outgoing chemistry stream in your blood of the DHT imbalance in the hormones since nothing out there currently exists to lock to the receptors themselves shielding them as a permanent barrier and there is nothing out there yet to reset the genetic code that implements baldness in human beings. So being that this all we have and by the way DHT and T lessen as you get older past 40 years old so then with the oral inhibitors they would logically be more successful in those who have maintained their hair slowing the baldness over time as there is less to fight against the treatment. So there is merit taking this from your 20's, 30's and into your 40's restoring your hair until the next thing comes around the curve.

    Many guys would tell you not to take fin until you are 20. But your bravery will pay off

    Waiting 3 years can be the difference between NW2 & NW3a-4. Somewhere else in the world is a 17 yo NW2 who decided to wait til 20....his college years are basically ruined & he does not even know it yet
