    Default Where am i on the norwood scale? norwood 2/3?

    Hey guys!
    I noticed my temples was receding about 5 months ago, but when i saw older pictures of me i clearly understood it started around at when i was 18, i am 20 years old now.

    I am on fin and minox 1.25mg and twice minox on temples per day (3 months in treatment) and i have seen some regrowth around the temple area. I really hope i can grow some hair back on the temples!

    But where am in the norwood scale? Can you guys try to see how my pattern is with my temples is?

    Thank you very much for your help! I really appreciate it!

    Id say your a NW 1.5 going into a 2 but since your on treatments you might be able to hold on to what you have which is not bad at all..a quick question though..do you only apply minox to your temples or all over your scalp? If you do only at the temples then how much do you use and did you notice a shed?

    I only apply it on the hairline and temples. I do not have any hairloss on the crown, there my hair is pretty thick. I did notice a shed after 2 weeks, lasted for 1 month, i did lose some hair at the hairline and temples durning a shed, but only weak hair. I have a picture from right temple where my shed was worst. I took it when the shed was done if you want to see. And i use 7 sprays in the morning, and 7 at night. So around 2ml everyday. 5%

    I know it must have been devastating but it doesn't look so bad your hair looks really good man keep up the treatments and I would like to try minox on the hairline and temples as well.

    That's what I used to think for my hair as well. Don't under estimate vertex hair loss. Usually guys do lose it in area first.

    However, I just noticed I was losing hair on my vertex.

    You definitely made solid gains. Continue on the Finasteride and Minoxidil usage. It's definitely working for you. If you
    continue, I believe you will go to at least a Norwood one.

    As you already know, Minoxidil will save temple hair as well as vertex hair.

    Congratulations.

    Thank you! I hope i will go back to norwood 1.

    Im watching my vertex area to, and my hair is very full there, but there is one weird area that always scared me. i have a hair whirl on the side of my nape hairs, and it looks less dense, but everyone tells me its normal and nape hair is very immune to balding. But can you check the pictures and say what you think ? http://imgur.com/a/G84Qb
