Weekly summary - 92th week

While I am disappointed with my hair loss battle progress, I am not ready to give up. In fact, giving up is just like totally lose of hope. Ya, you can said I am not ready to accept the fact I am going to bald one day, but who want to? I am not going to stop taking Propecia or finasteride as in the minimum circumstances; it has slowed down my hair loss.
Propecia effectiveness may vary for different people. I am not surprise that one of the reader said he have see the results in four months. I am almost two years with propecia and hardly see any progress. I think he may be like those majority who enjoy improvement up to some extent. I predict his result is likely less hair loss compare previously. You can grow your hair in four months as those follicles of bald area (vertex for example) still in the rest stage or just in the initial stage to grow miniature hair. Even the miniature hair was born, will it grow into mature stage is a question mark. In my case, the miniature hardly grows into mature hair. As a result, my M shape head is just the same as previously. I just pray my middle M shape not to become bigger M shape.
My hair loss is quite normal and consistent. What I mean normal is about 100 strands of hair loss per day which is in the acceptable range (below 150 strands of hairs). However, this will not guarantee you will recover your hair. It is divided to hair loss and hair re grow. You may loss only a strand of hair per day but you gain zero hair, you 365 strands of hair less that last year. Get it? I am actually in that situation.
Libido has gain back a little recently. May be after I train my PC muscle during urinate, haha..However, quiet a lot has face the lower libido side effects after in Propecia medication. I do not think it is a co-incidence and doubt the figure given by Merck. You can refer the poll at your right. It is definitely not a 2% or anything close to it. My previous poll shows at least half of them suffer certain of side effects. If you want to take Propecia, I suggest you have to psychologically prepared the worst case.

Have u tried other option, I dun think propecia is the best solution, last resort perhaps. The drug will flow to blood stream and increase the testosterone level more than normal standard. If we stop using it the hair loss will drastically increase and will getting bald in 6 to 24 month, also sacrify the libido, manhood status, not the wise choice.
U still depress after using it for two years, it rights time four u to decide, keep fighting with dissapoint result or embrace your fate getting bald one day.

I agree...

I would rather opt for minoxidil than propecia.....

Propecia is last resort ...wouldn't want any side effects coming at me.

So far Mr John still works...as far as my concern.

Hi, i would like to ask does thickening shampoo works? I know it doesn't regrow hair ,but does it make your hair look thicker? If so, can anyone please recommend it to me? Thank you.

Hi guys...

I am currently using Himalaya Herbal Shampoo (You can get it at Guardian or Watsons). So far 'thickening shampoo' has not been in the practice.

I only use it twice a week. Just to get rid of those dirt and oily thingy from the head.
