I’m 18, and have clearly started to bald. Do you agree with this plan?

I’d have a recommended list as follows:

  1. Dutasteride

  2. finasteride

  3. minox

  4. LLLT

  5. Nizoral

  6. microneedling (I have this so low due to safety concerns about people doing this at home alone. Most derm’s don’t recommend more than 0.25mm for home usage)

Extras (may or may not help):

  1. peppermint oil, rosemary oil

  2. saw palmetto

  3. scalp massage

  4. RU

  5. CB

  6. Taurine

  7. multi vitamin

After over a year of obsessive research, that’s the combined list I’ve accumulated if available ongoing treatments. Obviously, a transplant would be an option for something permanent as well.

I would start someone on the 3 most easily used and affordable products (Fin, minox, and niz 2%). From there, if they don’t respond, I’d swap out Fin for Dut and recommend LLLT comb or needling if they are willing to take the risks. If that somehow fails, then we’re getting into the trial products for desperation (ru, CB).

There’s lots of treatments out there, I think it’s just a matter of finding the right combo that works for most people :).

The first thing I would do is get a HAIRCHECK test to get a baseline and find out where and how much hair loss you had, and then from the results of the test make the recommendations of treatment. This is the value of seeing an expert in the field. Look here for more information: https://baldingblog.com/haircheck-test-how-it-is-done-video/

Get a virtual consultation with Dr. William Rassman and Dr. Jae Pak for hair loss options. You can learn more by scheduling an appointment.
