I lost all my hair in the pattern of NW 6 at 28 yrs old. Not a hair in sight, smooth as a babies bottom. It remained that way for 20 yrs. After which i used minoxidil 5% and Finasteride 1 mg I regained full coverage including the hair line.
So i don’t agree with the Doc’s Statement that hair follicles die. They are just being kept in a resting phase by dht.
Thanks for the comment and sharing your experience. The experience is certainly very, very rare. I’d love to see before and after photos, as I’ve never seen a patient have such a result from medication after being completely bald for decades.
