UPdate: New stuff I am doing now:
*Rubbing 5% minoxidil into my skull once daily (Dermatoligust approved this);
*Using Nutri-Ox (Sally Beauty Nioxin generic) trio of shampoo, conditioner and Scalp Treatment (about $15 total for a starter kit)
*My Derm also prescibed 1mg Propecia for me (OK since I am not planning on getting pregnant) HOWEVER even the generic (Finasteride) is $75 a MONTH! I don't think so. SO: I scoured the internet until I found a drug called Finpecia which is also 1mg of finasteride -but manufactured in India. Look it up.
*IF i Can, I avoid brushing my hair or rubbing my scalp too briskly when I shampoo.
There is also a "Trichology" clinic that you might want to check out: http://www.miyoharaintl.com/...
Anyhoo, I guess I can say that I am not losing anymore hair than before (but still too much as far a Iam concerned), but do I now have a full, lustrous mane? Hell Nope. However, I am simply not going to give up this fight! Will keep you posted!
