    Default What is defined as shedding?

    Just started my .25mg of Finax a couple of days ago along with Minoxidil 5% foam, and Nizoral 2% shampoo.

    I've been seeing people saying they've seen a massive shed with fin, but how much are we talking about? Does this mean if you're sitting at your desk and you see hair strands fall out that means you're passively shedding?

    Minox and keto can also induce an initial shed FYI.
    The amount and duration of the med shed is different for everyone. For some people it's quite excessive. The important thing is to keep treating for at least 12 months--some people can't stand the shedding and quit their meds right in the middle of it.

    Did you start the Finax and Rogaine at the same time?

    Is it bad to start treatments simultaneously? I'm going to start minox and Propecia at the same time. Will this be a problem?

    I don't see why it would hurt your long-term results at all. A lot of people start "the big 3" all together at once.

    However it does kind of maximize your chances of experiencing a heavy shed in the beginning
