Weekly summary - 183th week -- Minoxidil lost its effect?

Anyone here has use Rogaine or Minoxidil for over a year?
I found that there is no hair regrowth after quite a successful first year of using Minoxidil 5%. I doubt if other also face the same situation. I make a search in hair loss help forum and found that some people claimed that Rogaine will gradually lose the effect after 48 weeks.
5% minoxidil peak at 16 weeks and give us the best result and gradually lose the effect afterward. I think the best result after 48 weeks is maintain the hair you gain during that period. Lets see how about Finasteride or Propecia will lose the effect gradually?
After year 3, the hair lost seems stated again although compare with placebo, Propecia still yield a much better result. It seems like the hair you gain via Propecia will started to lose again after year 3 but drop at a much slower pace compare you not taking Propecia.

i'm currently taking some hair treatment...not YN,SV or 101...the result is quite good...maybe the monoxidil is not suitable for me....i experienced more hair loss after using minoxidil...that's the reason i stopped..

@Darwin from Penang: Since you are young and just experience hair loss, you might consider Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) with dermaroller. Is available in Penang.

Jason: Do you have a lots of dandruff and flacking while using minoxidil. If yes then I think there is inflamation and in this environment hair won't grow. Need to solve this.

The penang guy: I think the platelet rich plasma (PRP) is an injection procedure done in clinic. Maybe you can google the term or anyone can provide more input about this?

minoxidil will cause "fake" dandruff. It is actually the residual of the liquid. I use rogaine while in the morning as it dry up faster and also no dandruff.

okies, i will find out about that. Thanks, i jus went to swenson for a free checkup and they told me tht i have so many dead folicles. and they told me once the folicle is dead ther is no chance of regrowing the hair, i feel like killing my self :( is it true???

Penang guy: First don't let them scare you, you are still young and just experiencing hair loss. I think your follicle maybe just dormant for now. You need to do something about it.

Jason: then maybe I have bad side effects from using Rogaine. I usually have very bad dandruff, itching and my scalp felt very tight. I also don't know what to do. sigh..Maybe might try other treatment.

Hi, I just started using Rogaine foam today, ordered from amazon. But once I squeeze the 'button' and the foam came out, it just melted into solution (like tonic) in just few seconds. Also, once it dried in my head, I feel my hair become a bit 'hard', like using hair styling foam. Is this OK? I'm afraid being conned by the seller.
Thanks..

I stopped using all other minoxidils, because they tend to be sloppy, I dunno how minoxidil can stop working for you, never heard about before. I will consult with a doctor first if I was you.
