My Hair Loss Story
I first started to notice my hairloss at 22. At that point I was probably at 40-50% density since it was not that noticeable (only in certain light.) Rogain was available as a prescription 2.5%, being as vain as I was I jumped on it. It did a remarkable job of keeping my hair in until about 2 years later I decided I "didn't need it" since I "wasn't really losing my hair" so I stopped using it since my finances were very tight and I couldn't really afford it anyway. A little over a month later my hair began to fall out at a tremendous rate and I ran out and started using rogain again. But it was a little too late. It didn't grow back to the way it was but it did freeze the loss again. I have been on it ever since and started using Propecia as soon as it was available as a prescription. My hair seems to have not changed at all since that point almost 14 years ago. Although I imagine there has been a very slight amount of loss just not visible to me.
How has my hair loss affected me?
It's made me self conscious.
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
Rogain and probably propecia too. But definitely Rogain.
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
So far so good!
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
Rogain and propecia. AND DON'T STOP!!!
