Hello, Dr. Rassman…
I am curious about Propecia and/or Rogaine. Do these medications change the CHARACTER of your hair over time? In other words, do they make for healthier hair in general? You know, thicker, fuller, more lustrous? I have noticed as I have entered my early 40’s that my hair seems to be finer and drier than it used to be. I typically use product to add some lustre to it. Do thees medications help in that regard, or do they basically “freeze” the hair loss and the character of the hair remains the same?
Thanks so much for your time!
Propecia works on the miniaturized hairs, thickening them. That will change the character of the hair, making it look more like it did before the impact of genetic balding that caused the miniaturization in the first place. Many people who take Rogaine report similar results. This is all good.
