So I told you awhile back that I was experimenting with minoxidil to see if I could coax some regrowth from the front of my hair which I’m convinced is thinning (due to a hormone imbalance I suspect, I’m looking into it). My preliminary research suggested that twice daily long term commitment was required, so I wasn’t expecting sudden results. Furthermore, according to the instructions and warnings I’m doing everything wrong. For one, I’m using the 5% intended for men. It states quite clearly that the product is not intended for regrowth in the front or to combat receding. I personally think this is bullshit because if it grows hair in one place it will grow hair elsewhere; some dudes are even using minoxodil to fill out their patchy-ass hipster beards. Of six bottles of foam, I’ve exhausted one. I’ve been devoted even though the twice daily application can get really annoying. I do believe it is paying off. The results are subtle, but I’m convinced the front is filling in thicker. Call it the placebo effect or self-delusion, but I’m sticking with the program to see what comes of it.
