You spent thousands of dollars to reset the clock another 10 or 15 years max and then return to being bald unless you are taking Minoxidil, Finasteride, Dutasteride something internal to block the process utterly and reset it closing off the detrimental effect then you will always suffer from MPB. MPB is an internal hormonal irregularity that impacts men and women who hairlines androgen receptors are programmed with sensitivity given the commands to fallout and miniaturize and fall back. Taking nothing internally out of fear while having none of the side effects whatsoever or fear of what it might do to you sexually is unwarranted and it is that reluctance that will cause more time to pass while more of your hair falls out and the Norwood scale advances on you.
    I didn't know things like stress and diet could "trigger" MPB. I thought that was predetermined. If you were going to start losing hair at 20, I thought that you were going to start losing it at 20 no matter what.

    On a side note, how has Finasteride helped you fight balding?

    Diet and stress have no influence on MPB.

    I haven't even seen profound results and I'm still elated that I'm already 8 months dedicated (barring a 1 week break) and going strong. Instead of fretting the prospect of sides, I did my best to find resolve in taking action.

    Will it pay off in the end? We'll see. Can't not fight though.
    Yes.
