All of the things he says sound pretty smart, although sometimes I really dont know what they mean hehehe.

So decade two in your opinion, should one stay on the big three, or add any other stuff, or what would be the best to consider for hair rehab??


Thanks!

I have noticed the "old time" posters like Decade two don't post much anymore. I barely see new topics created daily. The forums traffic has been slower in this section than it used to be. Guess alot of people have moved on.

Hi there. Thanks for the compliment.

A topical antiandrogen could make a good addition. Finasteride does not prevent DHT from being metabolized completely, so you can use a topical AA to block the androgen receptor from any left over DHT. Between that and finasteride, you should have the androgen angle completely covered, which is the main thing.

Second to that, for a growth stimulant to compliment minoxidi, SODs have some evidence for efficacy.. It has the added benefit of potentially helping with inflammation or skin flaking, if minoxidi causes you either.

I've been out of the loop, and just happened to see this by coincidence, so I'm not sure if there is some new or pipeline growth stimulant around these days that makes a better choice. (I'm thinking about bimataprost).

Yeah, it seems as long as use the dut/fin with some RU, I don't lose hair.

The minute I get sloppy, especially on my right side of my hairline, I start to see thinning.

What can I say? I can tolerate taking a pill every day and rubbing crap on my head, but just barely.

It's been a long time, and I'm hoping with the next *five years* (or less) something like histogen works out, and I can eliminate either the lotions or the pills.

Hey decadetwo I have read many of your posts years ago and they gave me hope back then. I am a young guy who started balding at 16 and a future nw7 if left untreated. I take 1 mg of dut ed for the past 2 years and recently started ru again after a big break. Do you think ru is nessecary if I'm taking that much dut even if my hair loss is very aggressive. I'm on the big 5 atm as you call it.
