So how the hell do you tell if something is working for you or not? I was on propecia for like 3 years… and didn’t “notice” a slowing of hair loss at all… I was still losing hair and thinning all over, and the shedding never seemed to slow down. So I step it up and try out dutasteride… same story, cept now I have an itchy scalp…
been on dutas for about 2-3 years now… hair loss has not stabilized, and continues to shed a bunch a day and seems to be thinning… now here’s the question… even though it doesn’t seem the dutasteride has halted my hair loss, how do I know it isn’t slowing it down even the slightest bit? How do I know that it isn’t working but is slightly slowing things down? How do I know if it is making things worse?
I keep reading that every guy sheds around 100 hairs a day. So how do us hair loss sufferers know that the hair we are shedding is just a normal shed & isn’t going to grow back thinner?
I’m debating on cutting my losses with dutas and trying an all natural route, but am unsure.
I’ve also been on rogaine for 4-5 years now, as well as hair vitamins & nizoral shampoo.
