What topical to add?


#1

I just started Propecia, I wonder what most people use in addition to Propecia for hair loss?

I am 21 just started to notice that I have been shedding a lot lately.

It’s normal to go through a shedding phase every now and then, but only you yourself know if you’re suffering from male pattern baldness. If you are then propecia is the right move and if you want to add a topical it would be minoxidil 5% - 2x daily. Stay on those 2 for AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. Many people, including myself, get off it because we don’t think we’ve benefited from it as much. But you soon realise what you benefitted because when you stop using the treatments you lose every strand of hair that you gained and kept from using the treatments.
You are lucky because a)you’re stopping your hairloss as soon as you recognized it at the early stages b)treatments work the best for those in early stages - don’t be surprised if you start seeing new hair regrowth

These hairloss forums are a gift from God for us suffering from MPB. Thank you Hairsite!:smiley:
