    ...go live you life!!

    Just pop back every so often, to check in with us lot and the next generation 'the cure is just 10 years away' hairloss companies, though impo it's just round the corner!!

    ...the 5 year corner, haa.
    My hairline and top will always bother me, I can't stop coming here lol.

    Damn, 10 years away??? Thought it was 2015.

    I've let it grow out before. But when I let it grow is when it reminds me how bad my hairloss really is.

    Also, mirin' those eyebrows.
    I've been accused of plucking/doing my eyebrows since I was a kid several times. I've never touched them. Other than passing down MPB to me, my dad also passed down his eyebrows to me, mine are exactly like his.

    Fair enough, different hairloss effects different people suffering with hairloss!
    Hell, only this morning i was thinking uhh, hairs looking ok today maybe it's not all that bad, then just now, i mean about 3 minutes ago, i was taking a pic of my cat with me in it (stupidly!!) and then the image flashed up on my phone, call it; bad light or akward angle but shit, there's my hairloss in all it's glory, knocked me off my flow, shit on my parade etc etc, oh man.

    People who don't suffer have no idea and i mean they have no idea, so i'm sorry for playing down your situation earlier, only you are concerned with how you feel and others just need to sympathise.

    Be it 2015, 2022 whatever, we need something else other than the usual suspects.

    Good luck chaps, kind regards

    it looks good, as stated before your skull shape is very well balanced so you definitely pull off the look. I wish I had a similar shaped head, unfortunately already being as ugly as one can be in a few years I'll end up with the gollum lookwhen my hair is completely gone

    So I attempted to give myself a "military" haircut, to minimize the appearance of my MPB, and possibly to minimize the appearance of my AA. Tell me what you guys think. I just gave myself this haircut right now.











    Does it minimize hair loss a bit?
    doesn't look bad short. I have the same issue with either Alopecia bald circles or psoriasis, ****in docs couldn't tell me what it was w/o cutting a piece of y head out, so I decided against it. I HAD THIS HUGE BALD SPOT. probably the size of a Silver Dollar on the back right of my head, we're talking not a single hair in the whole circle. I used this Clobex shampoo and Taclonex and it all grew back in like 3 months. It was in a spot that isn't affected by any mpb or thinning though. I could probably dig up a pic of what it looked like.

    Taclonex scalp is in an oil based type solution, with some active ingredient calcipotriene 0.005% and betamethasone dipropionate 0.064%. just googled that.. But anyhow yeah its like this cream / oil that smoothes out everything and it slows down the production of skin cells or something. The problem I think I had with the circle bald spot was the skin got all crusty/buildup then blocked the follices. The cream gets rid of the buildup.

    The clobex shampoo is like the most powerful anti inflammatory or steroid shampoo there is. I think its like $300-500 for a bottle of it. Somehow my derm hooked me up with a huge bottle of it for $30 bucks. And you can get a lot of free samples. Thing is I never confirmed whether I had psoriasis, or that alopecia bald spot thing. But here's the pics of what my head looked like at one point. MAN. Let me tell you. Worst time of my life. But hair somehow bounced back.. It wasn't in a MPB area. I still use the taclonex cream on my head if I ever feel any buildup on my head. I've been experimenting with using it on thinning area's. No idea if it is effective but I know that it can't hurt I used it everyday for like 4 months on that bald spot and my hair all grew back stronger than it was. Sorry for hijacking the post!

    Oh and not sure if these will be in correct order but u should be able to tell which were beginning to present day.

    It looks like you never even had anything wrong, looks like it worked for you 100%.

    I looked it up and it says the Clobetex shampoo is a Psoriasis Treatment. I have Alopecia Areata.
