Men often first notice hair loss on the temple area or on the hair line. Many refer to this as a "receding hair line." While this is not necessarily the beginning of progressive male pattern baldness, it can be distressing. It can also be very confusing sorting through hundreds of hair loss products and misinformation on the topic. Although it can be moderately challenging to regrow temple hair, it can be done and there is an additional permanent option if you are unsuccessful. The American Hair Loss Association reports that androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern baldness, is the cause of 95 percent of hair loss in males. Male pattern baldness is a hormonal condition caused by hairs being attacked and thinned by DHT. The American Hair Loss Association strongly suggests against researching or purchasing hair loss products on commercial websites. See a doctor or dermatologist that has experience in treating the condition. Propecia prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. Propecia is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss on the vertex and the anterior mid-scalp area. Male pattern hair loss is a common condition in which men experience thinning of the hair on the scalp. Often, this results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head. Propecia is for use by men only and should not be used by women or children. Propecia may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide. Propecia should never be taken by a woman or a child.
Apply it on the temples to get possible temple regrowth. I apply half a cap full to crown as recommended, should I just apply a little to the temples? Looks like the start of something good but only vellus hairs show up on the rest of the hairline. Finasteride on the other hand, would work for your whole scalp. Is applying it at the temples not more likely to cause side effects? Those always gave me false hope that something was going to start happening on my whole hairline, but all I got to see was vellus hairs popping up on my hairline, but terminal hairs that connect my eyebrow and hairline. It's more like the temple, the very corner of the temple, you know what i'm talking about? But like I said yesterday, it takes much longer to see hairline/temple regrowth. I think it cosmetically appears fuller but that may just be from your combing techniques for both. Also, no urological sides, pain, ED, shrinkage, etc? The combing can look deceptive but if you look, I combed them both back in both pics the best I could and the stands are much thicker in the second pic. No amount of combing could replicate that kind of volume, and there is very clearly new hair at the corners where your hairline and temples meet up. I definitely see NO FURTHER LOSS so that's the main point to take from your 10 months, which is pretty fucking awesome, so congrats. I am on 1mg brand name (camber) and no sides at all other than reduced beard growth, which I think is largely due to DHT being reduced. Hello all, As promised I am following up at 10 months fin only. The left pic is around 2 months on finasteride and the right is at about 10. Only side i have experienced is slower beard growth, but other than that nothing. No topicals, just fin.i don't know if it is exactly "regrowth" but I had a lot of tiny hairs around 4-5'months that might of been miniaturized and coming back in thicker. The results speak for themselves, Let me know what you think. I don't mean to be a rude, but is there really a difference here? It's possible, but in the first photo the hair is clumped and messy which tends to make it appear worse and in the second its combed straight.
