My temples and hairline are receding badly now. So, now I've got some hefty decisions to make such as do I opt for a HT, do I use minoxidil or d I give up and accept nature.
I'm ruling out option 3 at the minute as I hope that there is something that can be done for this problem in my instance.
HT is too drastic an option for me at this stage of my life.
So, it looks like it is now time (or maybe too late) to add Minoxidil into the mix.
There are so many options out there I don't know what to choose. The person who runs the hairdressers I frequent sells Spectrum DNC and he seems like a clued in guy in the hairdressing world (I won't reveal his indentity, but he has been on National TV), so I assume it is good stuff.
My question's are as follows:
- Are there any controlled independant studies carried out on the effectiveness of Minoxidil on frontal/temple hair loss? After a quick google, I've found none.
- Is anything with Minoxidil sufficient or is a specific type of brand needed. The spectral DNC would be handy for me to obtain, but if there is something better out there, then obviously I would want that instead.
- Are there any other products out there for frontal/temple hair loss? (My crown is quite good, so far. It's just the front).
- Is dutasteride an option now?
