    Default 25 year old battling hair loss but still with hair!

    Hey everyone howís it going, Iíve been battling hair loss since 20ish. I started using Rogaine at 21, and tried many other natural things to combat hair loss. Iíve always had dandruff issues, itís gotten better over the years but recently I cut down to once a day Rogaine (thoughts?). I went to one of the top hair transplant specialist, and he suggested I wasnít ready for a hair transplant just yet. Instead to try out finistrided .5mg daily and if I wanted get a refurbished Igrow.

    Current regimen:
    Bioten 5,000 mg 2x daily
    Saw palmetto 2x daily
    Rogaine liquid 1 daily/recently lowered
    Finistride .5mg daily /started this week
    Wash my hair natural shampoo EOD
    2x weekly Onion juice and coconut oil
    1x weekly apple cider vinegar
    (Might buy an Igrow)
    (Derma roller work and what size?)

    Thoughts/Advice?

    Are you open to trying a CBD shampoo? We are currently developing one, so far the data looks promising....either way good luck.

    Your regime sounds good. Strong plan.

    What did your doctor say about the iGrow and LLLT in general, is he a believer?

    I recently bought an iGrow, been using it for 2 weeks, it's quite painful on the head actually. But no real problems with it overall.

    My regime is:
    Minoxidil twice daily
    vitamins, biotin, SP etc.
    Nizoral Shampoo
    Considering buying and trying out RU58841. Or 'making' topical finasteride.

    Add minoxidil and dut .5 mg if you want to hold your hair little longer.

    Yeah the doctor told me the igrow helps strength the hair and maybe even regrow. (There was no reasoning to lie since his office doesnít sell it) keep me updated on the results. What does nizoral do? And yeah I quit finistride after 3 days, I got paranoid and didnít want to take the chance.

    What have your results been like using Minoxidil? Does the effectiveness wear off after a few years?

    I started using 5% minoxidil but got chest pain after a few weeks. This was a bummer as it's a rare side-effect. Might consider switching to the 2% and being a woman for a while. hahaha!

    Never had any side effects, I cut down to once a day since Iíve been using it for awhile, I read that it still works like that
