I know dr.rassman has mentioned a few times that if a person is genetically balding their hair has a certain lifetime (example 5 or 10 years) , with or without the use of finasteride, before it completely dies. If that is the case, what is the point of taking finasteride if the hair is going die anyways within 5 or 10 years? Could finasteride prolong the hair from falling out early?
The point is you have the extra 5 to 10 years or possibly more of good hair. Imagine being 20 years old in your prime and you notice thinning. Imagine taking a drug that can postpone this until you’re 30 or 40. To some this may be worth while.
