Weekly summary - 115th week

It is the second week I have been in Proscar and Kirkland Minoxidil 5%.
I have more dandruff then before due to the Minoxidil. Actually I can not verify my dandruff is a side effects of Minoxidil or it is the Minoxidil itself that result my hair has look like a lot of dandruff.
First, take a drops of Minoxidil and let it dry a paper. You will notice after it dries, some white substance that look like powder. It looks very similar to dandruff, right?
So, the side effects of Minoxidil before we can see the result is, you can see quite some "dandruff" on your hair. Please be careful to apply minoxidil with the dropper on your scalp instead on your hair to avoid the "dandruff" embarrassment.
Cutting Proscar into 4 is another difficulty to me. May be I should learn how to split the uneven shape of Proscar. MSD has purposely made Proscar in such a shape so that we purchase Propecia which is several times more expensive.
I would share with you if I have the idea how to split it expertly. Till now, my libido and hair ondition has been the same with previous week. The result of hair loss and hair growth still maintain as previously. I will monitor closely and revert to you guys.

Weekly summary - 114th week

This is a week on Propecia (Proscar split into 4) and Kirkland minoxidil 5%. So far nothing special or strange happen. The only cons after using Kirkland minoxidil is my scalp a bit itchy. It also takes some times to dry and it will cause you problem in the morning when you to work, you may need to wait it to dry before you style your hair. Luckily I do not do this due to my simple hairstyle and I rarely comb, as you know I do not have much hair also.
I think the increase of dosage from 0.5mg to 1.25mg do not decrease my libido that much. It may be due to my libido is already low. It can not be go lower.
It is a hard decision to start Propecia and minoxidil for many men. They would like to try Shampoo, then Yun Nam Hair care and Beijing 101 before Minoxidil or Propecia. It is what I go through. I would hope you guys who read this and haven't take action to save your hair, go staright away for Propecia and Minoxidil. It save your time, and better cahnces to save your hair. Spending money in Yun Nam just wasting your time and money. It is a huge sum of money for working class like us. I have been cheated, I do not hope you are the next victim.
Till then, report to you again next week.

Weekly summary - 113th week-- started with minoxidil and Proscar

I started my Kirkland minoxidil 5% with Proscar 5mg splits into 4 pieces on Saturday. It is hard to cut Proscar into 4 pieces, it is impossible to cut it into 5 pieces. The shape of Proscar is neither square, rectangular or round. I just tried to cut it half, and then split it a bout the same size again. It is really hard to split. I know that there is a generic Proscar from Taiwan in our local market. The generic Proscar is square in shape and it is 4mg. It allows us to split it into 4 pieces easily. However, it is not easy to find and I still checking where we can buy it. The price is almost the same with current MSD Proscar at RM 192.
Another good news is that I finally received my Kirkland Minoxidil that I bought from There is no problem of Malaysia customs, I certainly will buy form US instead of local seller as the price is much cheaper. The delivery is about 11 days from US to my house.
The things I not so comfortable to apply Kirkland minoxidil is it is a bit oily. After you applied it on your scalp, it actually need 2 to 4 hours to dry. I would said 3 hours average. I will feedback more of my progress.

Weekly summary - 112th week

I am going to split my Proscar into 4 pieces. I have no idea how to split it to 5, it is almost impossible. I read in a local forum that there are Taiwan's Proscar that is about 4mg and is square in shape to let us easier to split it into 4 pieces. The price is around Rm 180 for 30 tablets that can last you for 4 months.
I do not know which pharmacy is selling it. I may considered this Taiwan's Proscar than the original MSD Proscar. If we just need 1mg per day, I do not know what will happen if you consume 1.25mg or 25% more. Of ocurse, some residual is missing while we split the tablet.
My current regime is almost ready except waiting the arrival of my minoxidil 5%. My regime is Proscar, Minoxidil plus organic shampoo. I would like to see improvement after stuck with Propecia for two years and it just slow down my hairline residing and also maintain my hair. I want to regrow my hair eagerly. Even with Minoxidil the hair regrow may just temporally. So Proscar may function t maintain the hair grow due to Minoxidil. One grow your hair, one maintain your hair. By theory, it works, in reality, no one know as the result varies with people.

Weekly summary - 111th week--awaiting my Kirkland

I have decided not to buy Kirkland Minoxidil 5% from local seller. I will buy from US seller which is almost 50% the price of local seller can offered. Of course, I am taking the risk of Malaysia customs. We will see if any obstacles that I will face for the goods shipment.
I have using Bawang shampoo alternate with Himalaya shampoo these days. The feeling is still OK. Nothing spectacular of Bawang of course. they have offered Daily and professional shampoo. I tried professional shampoo sample before and the feeling is not much different with the daily shampoo. Of course, in long term, there may be difference.
My hair loss has been consistent for several months. The progress of regrowth still invisible. I would say Propecia may not help in the hair growth. This is the reason I am trying to use Minoxidil finally. It may increase my monthly expenses on hair care. I have to reduce my expenses in Propecia by replacing with proscar 5mg (split it). As I said before, you may face problems when you purcahse form local pharmacy. Normally you will be asked to show your prescription or at least ask if you have bought it before. Do not tell pahrmacist you buy Proscar 5mg to replace Propecia. If you answer this way, all of us may face problems to buy Proscar without precriptions.
