So I’ve been losing a ton of hair for around the last year. My hair has thinned out dramatically, and receded in the front a little but I have no balding areas just diffuse thinning. I have been using Rogaine and Finesteride and have seen some thickening at the crown but no benefit everywhere else. I have had a CMP done to check for any deficiencies and it was negative. I went to a hair loss clinic yesterday and they scoped my scalp and told me I had a normal amount of follicles and no miniaturization (the hallmark of male pattern baldness). When I asked why I was losing so much hair they couldn’t really help me. One person told me that I should rinse and shampoo my hair everyday because accumulated rogaine can cause hair to become brittle but other than that they just said they couldn’t help me. Does anyone have any ideas? I’m worried the finesteride won’t help either because it specifically inhibits DHT.
If you went to a clinic, you should have seen a doctor skilled in this field. I would have examined you, performed a HAIRCHECK, a miniaturization analysis and quantified your donor supply. I would have told you what to expect short and long term.
