Hair loss please help
Ok well I’ve recently posted a thread about my unusually low sex drive for a 21 year old, and I’ve gotten some good feedback, now I need alittle help with my hair loss.id rather post here instead of a hair loss forum because I’m hoping no one is gonna market some stupid product, I mean this is pe site and the pe is in the form of natural pe, no pills or devices.for the most part haha, so I figured id get real peoples real advice and not some reply targeted to make money on some product because it’s a “hair loss” forum
Anyway, I’m 21, my senior year in high school I woke up one morning and there was a section of my hair that was a lot shorter than the rest, it was about half an inch high, and it spanned from my leftside hair line back about 4 inches and about 3 inches wide, it stayed that way for a year!! No growth in that one spot.it completely boggled my mind, all the other hair grew, this never fell out or grew, it just broke off and stayed that way.
After about a year of depression and no results and the rest of my hair starting to fall out I went to a dermatologist and he started me on a protien shampoo called daragen, and then eventually put me on propecia, well my hair started to grow, it wasn’t as thick as before but close enough, and my hair wasn’t falling out as much, didnt really grow back too much hair I lost but it helped me maintain..
I stopped using it after about half a year, because of price and sexual side effects.now I’m 21 and my hair is really starting to thin, I’ve been using hair genesis for the past 3 months, no resluts I still find like 12 strands of hair in my hand when I wash my hair, I used hair genesis because if you go to their website it compares them to all other leading hair loss treatments and it says they are the only ones that treat receding hairline and how even tho they are all natural they still meet some fda shit, and no sexual side effects.whatever
I don’t even care if what I lost NEVER grows back, just something to help stop the current falling out, I also tried using rosemary essecntial oil but that doesnt seem to be working, the only thing that seemed to work was propecia but it had really bad sexual side effects, so idk what to do
1. I was thinking about just using rogaine and seeing how that works, I know it says it doesnt help receding hairline, which I don’t understand why not, but my top is thinning too, so I wanted to try using that, and then one day maybe slowly getting off that and back on propecia, has anyone done that? Using rogaine to grow some hair and then stopped using it and used propecia to maintain?
2. Is there anything worth purchasing? I’m only thinking about rogaine and prop again because they are fda approved, I’m tired of using these stupid, “we have a patent, or we are all natural but meet fda requirements blah blah” bullshit products, none of that stuff seems to work, and they say you should use for like 6 months to a year but I don’t want to waste all that time and money for something that don’t work, so is there anything besides prop and rogaine that ACTUALLY works?
3 any other advice? I’m hoping the rogaine will work, but is it true that sometimes it makes your hair fall out first before regrowing?
Idk what to do!! Please help
