    Default Minoxidil or hair transplantation?

    Hey everyone,

    since half a year, some people have realized that I'm starting to loose hair (I'm 25.).

    My question is what is the best thing to do in my situation.
    Intuitively, hair transplation is the most natural solution, but this probably doesn't make too much sense now because I still have "enough" hair.

    Minoxidil on the other hand shall only slow the hair loss process by around 5 years which isn't very convincing if one keeps in mind that one needs to take it forever.

    I don't want to take medication that is messing with my hormones.

    What would you recommend me to do?

    Thanks,
    Ravend

    A formal diagnosis with a hair restoration specialist is highly advised. Given your relatively young age, waiting to see how your hairline and hair density changes in the next few
    years will grant you a better understanding of the effectiveness of different hair restoration treatments, be they surgical or otherwise. For early prevention I may recommend starting with over-the-counter minoxidil treatments
    (Rogaine) and groMDís shampoo and follicle activator spray (www.gro.md).

    The shampoo itself is 70 dollars and the spray is 70...that is REALLY expensive. What differentiates the shampoo from lipogaine or regenepure? They seemingly both contain DHT blockers. And if we buy those products, do we also need to take finasteride, or will the DHT blockers in said products be enough by themselves?
