    Default Miniaturization = Thinning?

    Just wanted to clarify, that these two aren't the same concept correct? At my temples, I have miniaturization going on. So, I'm a bit confused as to what is thinning and what is miniaturization? Is mini. a consequence of hair that is thinning?

    My current regiment is 5% minoxidil, and I'm enjoying it. My friends that haven't seen me for 8 months noticed a bit of change in my hair. I'm contemplating on starting on the RU formulation, since members have mentioned it stops shedding.

    No, the term thinning refers to loss of density.

    When you "thin the herd" of cows, you don't shrink them, you slaughter some of them

    Miniaturization is the fact the hair cycle decreases in time and the hair never gets as thick or long eventually loss of density.

    The safety profile of this substance has not been adequately and appropriately established. Using it is gamble you need to make sure you are willing to take.
