    Default Long time reader..

    Ok been on the forums for a while, living in denial, but at this point my hair is pretty ****ed up.

    3 weeks ago ( August 22nd ) I started doing the 5% rogaine foam, 10,000 mcg biotin and nizoral shampoo. I bought the wrng stuff, and got the 1%, so I use it 4-5 times a week trying to use it up, then going to swap over to the 2% and probably use it every 2-3 days.

    I use to have amazing hair, like girls use to compliment my hair all the time. I have a high school reunion coming up and deciding if I want to go. The only thing holding me back is the fact that I know I look like crap because of my thinning hair. I'm not saying everyone that is bald looks like crap, I just know I can not pull it off... at all.

    To shorten my rambling.... what can I do to battle this harder? I know I'm not gonna see any results from my rogaine for another 3 months... if I do at all.

    I'm hearing great things about proscar, and considering ordering some, or maybe seeing if I can get a script for the real stuff. Should I be waiting until around my 4 month mark to see if rogaine did anything and if it is all I need, or should I just jump right into proscar, and if I do, should I continue my rogaine twice a day, or cut it down / eliminate it? I already have 5 more bottles, so I'm thinking I'll keep it around for at least 5 more months.

    I've used Caboki with great success. Took me a bit to figure out how to get it on just right, but now I can make it look pretty damn natural. The only con to that is if someone touches your head/hair, they will know it is fake, or think you are EXTREMELY dirty.

    I'll add the fin to my diet for sure, just wondering if I should give the rogaine a chance to do it's thing for a while first( only been 3 weeks ) or just jump right on fin now.

    Don't use Minoxidil "instead of" Finasteride.

    All Minoxidil does is force hair growth out of damaged hair follicles.
    This won't stop damage to your hair follicles in the first place which is the ultimate reason for hair loss.
    More of a short term improvement kind of option from my understanding.


    Finasteride will actually stop or slow damage to the follicles. But ofcourse is more risky.
    I've only just started Fin a week ago. Not sure if I have sides or not.

    Ok, I'm gonna do it.. I'm gonna go on finasteride. Now I have questions about that stuff, lol.


    Is there a benefit of Propecia vs Finpecia or proscar? I don't really want to have to get a perscription because of my job, it may lead to a longer wait time on something I've been working on.

    So, if I did get it online, are there any respected sites? I heard a lot about sites selling fake stuff.

    I don't mind paying extra for peace of mind.

    It's unbeleivable how hard it is to get good help and advice with Finasteride.

    Where did you get yours from? So far the only site that I found that was ever mentioned on a forum, is that inhouse pharmacy site.
