    Never heard of Retin A (alone) being a treatment for hair loss. Some companies mix it (I think) with Minoxidil but if it were any good we would've heard about it by now. Stick to Minoxidil and/or Fin if you want. Everything is A WASTE OF MONEY.

    i have

    when i first started minoxidil i was told to use of retina with minoxidil at the hairline and temple points to enhance the penetration and absorption of minoxidil. Retin-A decreases the protective barrier of the skin.

    can't say if it worked because i didn't stay on minoxidil for a long time

    still on retin-a though
