    Little update,
    I change generic finasteride for proscar. Apparently it's the same thing and it's gonna help me alot financially cause I'm a student. I just have a few questions.....
    1. Should I expect some shedding if I change finasteride for (1/4)proscar ?
    2. I use minoxidil foam, when should I reach the full potential of the product?

    Thank you

    Hi,
    I read all your posts and viewed your photos. I just wonder, why do you think your hair is receding? In my opinion you have a pretty good hairline as well as the crown. Your hair looks thick and very strong.

    Hi johny,
    I got some thinning on my hairline around 18-19 years old.... and at this moment I saw a dermatologist who told me that I got hairloss. He never really look at my hair clearly but he put me on finasteride and now I just have the feeling that I'm loosing more and more hair. Maybe I just got a mature hairline or maybe not but I don't wanna take any chances....
    Cheers

    Morning,
    Like a v shape of the hairline is not supposed to mean the start of the balding process?

    Just a V-shape does not necessarily mean MPB. It could just be a mature hairline. MPB is different for every person, looking at your relatives is the best way to predict what will happen to you.

    edit: I just saw your pictures on top of the page and to me it doesn't look like you're really going bald, but since you're so young and I have no idea what your hair looks like in person and how your relatives are doing hair-wise, don't take my word for it.

    It doesn't look to me like there is much reason for concern yet. Then again, if your dermatologist says you do have MPB and gave you fin, I'm sure he/she knows something I don't. I do think it's odd that you would get a prescription for fin without him/her even looking at your scalp. Maybe try to get a second opinion from another derm or go for a consult at a hair clinic or something?

    Thanks for responding;
    I think my dermatologist would never prescribe me fin without a diagnostic, I guess I'm just responding well to medication and I catch it at the right time. I don't have to stress too much about it and just live my life....

    However, I'm trying minox foam and here my hairline after 2 month ish;

    Little update,
    I've switch to kirkland liquid because I can't afford rogaine foam.... I think with the little dropper I will respect the right dosage. I still don't see an improvement in my hairline, just some peach fuzz. I still gonna continue my regiment and see what's going to happen.

    Cheers

    Almost 1 month on minoxidil liquid, honestly I prefer the foam cause it's really easy to apply and it was not making my hair greasy....However, my pocket is really happy. This is some picture after almost 4 months on minox. No big improvement but it's really weird cause I can see some little hair and peach fuzz where I apply the product....what do you think????
