    My hair is starting to thin on top. I'm looking into Rogaine or Propecia to help combat this. I was wondering if any of you Shedders have had any experience with these products.

    Howard related because....oh come one, do I really need to explain? :dontknow:

    The claim for Proscar is 80% will achieve retention and 20% achieve regrowth. Save yourself some money and get some generic finesteride (Proscar 5mg) and divide it in four. It is the same drug found in Propecia. If it is just starting now is the time, be agressive. Live damn it, live!.

    How old are you? If you are in your 20s or 30s I'd look into it... You got nothing to lose.

    If 40+... fuck it. Howard is the only human on the planet immune to aging.

    I use propecia everyday and its stopped my hair loss completely but no regrowth. I've been using it for just over a year but they say best results are seen at the 2 year mark.

    My uncle is in his 90's and has a full head of jet black hair, so I'm not worried...yet. I will check back in on this thread from time to time should something change.

    I've given this lecture a few times...

    When you start to lose your hair gentlemen, just let it go, keep what's left VERY short and never waste 2 seconds thinking about it. Many men look good bald, it's masculine. What's not masculine is obsessing over and going to great lengths to prevent your looks from ever changing. That's what we (women) have to do. You should be grateful you don't have to worry about such things and stop dumping chemicals on your head.

    Due to some severe medical issues, my mom started to lose her hair. We bought her Rogaine. It works.

    I'm 39. This has been slowly happening over the past few years. I had to take some professional photos for work and I noticed how shitty my head/hair looks, so that made me start looking into preventative measures. I don't expect it to grow back but I would at least like to see what I have thicken.

    Here is my advice: Stop trying to grow hair. Just accept it for what it is. Shave all of it off, or very very close. That is so appealing to women, rather than looking like someone who is insecure about his hair.

    You're welcome.


    And don't wear hats. Just go with it and create a new look for yourself.

    Yes. Laboratory testing has confirmed Rogaine will effectively remove 80% of your available funds, with a 20% chance of recovery.

    This. I've been on Proscar since 2008. It has definitely helped me out retarding hair loss but there has been no regrowth.

    Let your hair grow out a bit and master the comb-over.
