Stay hopeful. I didn't mean to be so negative. I'm a older woman so I could have other issues going on that are female specific that might be hindering thickness and density for me.

I have not been able to get back thicker hair strands or a significant amount of density in my temple, crown and front hairline. Seems as I get older the less likely that this will happen.

I'm however glad that my shedding is completely over and is normal, yet even though the shedding has stopped I have not experience regrowth to specific areas on my scalp that were there PRIOR to using the Minox. I feel like I still dealing with scalp issues and that is hindering my growth. My scalp feel like sandpaper. I could be dealing with psoriasis as a result of the use of this product, which I never had before use.

Don't lose hope, keep inspecting your scalp and trying to find solutions. I haven't given up. I'm trying Virgin Coconut Oil on my scalp and I'm changing my diet.

I would suggest trying Rose hip seed oil instead of coconut since it penetrates the scalp way easier, and heals the skin.

I am already using some Indian ayurvedic oils including coconut oil, but thats of no use because this shedding is not stopping & regrowth is very slow there are a lot of small hair growing in the front & some at the temples , but the growth is very slow. And I have noticed one more thing the front hair has started to shed again, maybe its the 2nd shed because they where the one to shed 1st when I had stopped using minox. Because of this the front has started to look thin again after it was started to look a bit thick again. , I don't know when I'll regain some hair density again , I am nowhere close to my baseline even after 6 months , maybe I'll start propecia if things don't change after the one year mark...

Update , I won't lie....the hair was not miniature hair...it is serious regrowth.... At the temples and the front.... Shedding is mostly at the crown vertex area ...100 hairs a day are shedding which is normal....so i guess the telogen effluvium is over or maybe it is slowing down...the hair which is shedding is also basically very thin not the remaining thick ones..& yes I have observed that my right temple is almost covered by hair now(though they are small and regrowth is very slow), but it I'd not the case for left temple...it is growing some hair but not everywhere... So is this normal?
Second thing is that the area just between the crown & the front I'd still very thin though hair is not shedding from there...there is no regrowth there... I don't know if this is due to dht , its resembling some what like the female pattern baldness where the line between the scalp starts thinning....
I wish this area also starts some regrowth....
I'll give another update with some Pics very soon...

So I'm posting some pics today they are the pics of my hair regrowth happening mostly at the temples & the front hairline , though the hair are still small about 0.5 cm long or even shorter than that but its definitely regrowth....

I can surely say that the density overall is very less less than what it was 2 months ago it is lowest at the crown & the vertex which is shedding the most ... Apart from it the sides are also shedding a lot lately , I don't know why but I NEVER applied minox on the vertex & crown & sides as well but its looking worse today ...a

Anyways some regrowth pics...

Update guys,
So its been about 9 months post quitting minox, hair density is lowest & hair is thin everywhere , I have lost a lot of hair in the front & vertex ,,.
A third shedding has started in last 10-12 days loosing about 200-250 hair a day. I guess this is probably the 3rd hair cycle , hair is shedding from every part of the scalp .
Can u give me some tips to reduce scalp inflammation , I use apple cider vinegar twice a week but that's not helping I shampoo just once a week . can u guys suggest something for reducing inflammation.
Will give a proper update next month with pics coz m busy with studies these days.

Are you using apple cider vinegar externally? If so you should try witch hazel.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.
