    When you catch it this early you do not need minoxidil. Minoxidil is just to aid in getting regrowth, but it does nothing to fix the basic problem of DHT damaging your hair. You should see a dermatologist who is familiar with hair loss, and verify the cause before you do anything. If they verify that you do indeed have AGA then you need to get on an anti-androgen to protect your follicles from DHT. The two main options now are finasteride, and RU58841. Finasteride is taken orally and reduces DHT levels in your body. RU58841 is an experimental topical that blocks DHT from binding to the hair follicle.

    If I were you I would get RU58841 on the black market, and you should be able to thicken your hair and maintain until CB-03-01, a topical similar to RU58841, hits the market. By doing this it is very likely that we will have a cure before you ever lose more hair. The most important thing for you to know is that it is easy to maintain your hair with treatment, but it is almost impossible to regrow it once it's gone. The time to do something is now, not after it gets worse.

    There are many options available rather than Minxodill. Your hairs are think and you are not in a state to undergo Hair transplant operation. So you must consult a good doctor rather than taking advices from others forum member here!!!

    Your hair looks fine. I don't see any signs of thinning or baldness, at least not in that picture.

    Haha

    Yeah I've been keeping an eye on it for 2 years and it looks the same...

    I'm actually going to the dermatologist to see what's up though

    Most forums and 1 barber(5 years ago) have said that I am thinning but it isn't far enough yet. I just assume My hair loss is slow. My moms brother and dad had hair in their 20s and didn't start getting the balding look until their late 30s early 40s so I assume my hair loss is slow or like you said I am fine

    If you think you're thinning, you're thinning.

    Mbach07,
    Is Finasteride still good for you as 2017 now? No side effect?

    Thanks

    Mark
