  1. tbf, spex.... thanks guys, it's very reassuring to know that it's normal to have what I'm experiencing. But it seems kinda odd that we should shed multiple times in a year. Do we eventually experience more gain than loss? Sure hope so. What has your experience been over the years guys?
  2. I'm having the same problem! I'm one year into proscar too (plus minoxidil for 2 years), and I'm losing hair again. I thought the shedding phase was supposed to be 3 months after starting treatment, not a whole year! It's kinda strange, cuz I didn't experience any shedding after 3 months of starting proscar. I'm worried the proscar just isn't working for me :s I will carry it on for another year though, just incase this IS a delayed shedding phase. Input about similar experience would be much appreciated
  3. Does anyone know the cheapest place I can get Nizoral 2% from? I used to be able to get Nizoral for really good deals from ebay. But no-one seems to sell it anymore. Boots charge far to much for a puny 60ml bottle. Any input would be much appreciated
  4. Bahh I haven't taken the pics . Is it worth me taking 6months post-propecia and 12months post-propecia pics? I started minoxidil 1 year ago. It grew some hair back, and reduced the amount of hair loss. I then started propecia 6 months ago, and it doesn't seem to have made too much of a difference to my rate of hairloss with minoxidil alone.
  5. Hi folks I ordered proscar from Dr Ashcroft (Specs' GP), and have been on it for 6 months (1mg/day). I haven't seen a lot of progress though, and just wondered if some of you guys would share your experiences with me. How long did it take before proscar/propecia started working for YOU? I've also been on minoxidil 5% for over a year, and started on Nizoral ~6months ago.
  6. wtf? no way! that's half the price I'M paying! how do you get a hold of it?
  7. Incase anyone thinks this Dr Ashcroft guy is a fraud who will cash your cheque and give you nothing in return..... think again, cuz you can find his name listed on the GMC (General Medical Council) website, GMC website, click here, where you simply follow the 'check a doctor's registration status' under the 'help for patients' section. You may ask for his GMC number when you call him ^^
  8. well the way i've worked around that issue, is by growing my hair long, since minoxidil only has contact with the roots if you know how to apply it correctly - with a pipette instead of a spray. Also, you need only leave minoxidil on for 2 hours before it dries completely, and you can run a comb through your hair and/or apply something like mousse (is that how you spell mousse?). (Remember however, not to wash your scalp for at least 4 hours after applying minoxidil, cuz it'll reduce its effectiveness). I know it's a bit of a hassle, but if you're at work you can always carry around a pocket-sized can of mousse or tub of gel, pop into the gents and slap some on.
  9. LOL!!!!! HAHAHAAAAAA omg! that's the biggest load of crap i've ever heard! haha I'm sorry to have to be rude, but I can't help it! when I was reading what that Sanzi guy had to say, I thought I'd just come across the dumbest post ever! - but his moment of fame was short-lived when I scrolled down and heard what that 'hairless' dude had to say, lol! D'ya think these ********* guys are funded by the NHS or by some other body ? These people con their wages out of idiots like YOU! Well actually i don't think Sanzi is an idiot, cuz he works for them, so he's just an opportunistic thief . Lol I pay a MAXIMUM of £15 a month for my hairloss (propecia, minox, nizoral), and my hair's growing back fine - and you're trying to convince people to pay more than £110??? Quote: "I really tehink the whole package is worth the money as I'm not just getting the products - I'm getting much more." LOL! w ould you like to tell use what this "much more" is? They don't by any chance have fit 'tricologist' babes massaging your scalp do they? or maybe a little more than just the scalp? Quote from 'hairloss': "I think i'm going to give them a go also ... and i'm going to pay double what the ask for because they are nice people who are not interested in my money at all." LOOOOL! firstly, are you Bill Gates? or that other dude.... umm Richard Branson? Oh, wait.... I here those guys are clever. Hmmm i suppose you must be one of their intelectually neglected, but financially lavished sons. Quote from 'brainless, i mean 'hairloss': "I too can't be bothered spending 10 mins on the net ordering my stuff....what a ball ache" But you CAN be bothered to get out of your door and take a monthly trip to the ********* center where they do jack-all to complement your hairloss treatment? Quote from 'hairloss': "At the end of the dayall they want to do is help me" ........ must I say anymore?
  10. brioni: I was told that i could take proscar whenever i wanted, regardless of when I ate. I'd simply advise that you stick to a fixed timetable - like before you go to bed EVERY night, or when you get up EVERY morning. If you have today's dose just before bed, and tomorrow's dose when you wake up, and the day after tomorrow's dose before you go to bed, there'll be a huge gap between doses. sonywebster: I'd split the msm up a little thru the day, so you get a constant, slow-releasing supply.
  11. gee, thx kyle ^^ you know, the way we men feel about our hair is just so dumb! I admit, i'm a victim to this stupidity as well - the way we look is such a small thing to women - it's just a factor on the side. Whereas for us men, we judge women most importantly by their looks, they judge US by our words & our assertiveness. I've seen plenty of ugly guys who are bald with beautiful women, and good looking guys who don't have a chance!!!!!!! The only reason a lot of good looking guys DO have beautiful women, is because they've also got the stupid belief that their looks are everything - so their good looks fuel their confidence, and it's their confidence that gets them laid! When the ugly ones can fuel their confidence from knowing the truth - that their looks don't matter, they get laid too! Not only do men and women have different bodies, they think differently too
  12. I've never used concealers before, but with regards to applying gel.... I once read somewhere that it's prefered to use something that has little contact with the scalp, like hairsprays. If you lavishly apply gel all over, and get a load of it on your scalp, and you apply minoxidil at the same time, then the gel will dilute the effect of the minoxidil. Washing is fine, I've heard of no reaction whatsoever. Just be sure to leave the minoxidil in your hair for at least 4 hours for it to take its full effect, THEN wash your hair with whatever shampoo you want. The biggest problem with minoxidil is it does make ur hair look kinda shite while it's on. Although your aim is to apply it only on your scalp, you can't help but get a load of it on your hair while applying to the scalp. And the fact that you have to apply it twice daily doesn't make things easier. However with time, you do get used to it - and as you become more proficient at applying it, your hair wont look as bad. hope that's helpful. Not sure if anyone else has any input on minoxidil + concealers?
  13. Follow this link: Pred's guide+links to hairloss treatment In brief, i get minoxidil from ebay from a very reliable seller. 5% of the Kirkland brand for ~£5 a month (a year's supply) - works just the same as the original stuff, only it's a little more greasy. I get propecia in the form of proscar (where proscar is 5mg and propecia is 1mg, u jus gotta break the proscar tablet into 5 pieces) for £8 a month, from the GP of 'spex', who's the don-daddy of this forum. Now you may not feel confident about sending your money to a guy who's details are posted on a forum, but if you go to http://www.gmc-uk.org/, you'll find that Spex's GP really is a registered general practitioner in the UK, and hence can be trusted sooo with my trusty calculator.... i worked out that 5+8 = £13 a month ^^ oh, i'm such a mathematical genious ! lol
  14. great! now i feel guilty! lol . I was in a bit of a bad mood yesterday, sorry for losing my cool. I wish you luck in resolving your hairloss issues Nams
