Any of you guys use Rogaine with success? I'm curious if you like the stuff and if you would recommend it to any one. My forehead is getting bigger
and balder :)

My motto is that it's better to be bald by choice than by force. Additionally I have friends that tout "Hat" as a cure.

Yep.

I'm 35, and started shaving my head when I was 23 because the widow's peak was getting to be a bit ridiculous.

Interestingly enough, my hairline quit receding about the time I started shaving my head...

If you have a good shaped head, you can try shaving it, but I wouldn't just shave it all at first. Try using clippers and wearing as short a possible for a while, when you get enough nerve, go for it. But to answer the question, no, never tried Rogaine or anything else for that matter.

I'm not going bald, but know that I one day will, so I have researched a few things on the subject,

Rogaine does abslutely nothing for frontal, or mid scalp baldness. It only helps if you are one of the people who go bald in the back. Sorry. There's nothing short of MHR. that can help you.

I got the M-shaped baldness, which I believe is autosomal dominant. I have the exact hairline of my father. So I started shaving my head this year. I'm 22. Sad but true story. :D

Don't worry, I started losing my hair when I turned 20. I think I was about 22 when I started shaving.

Midnight's Hair Replacement - it's some sort of process involving vinegar and water.

My hairline started receding about 5-6 years ago when I was 23-24. It must be falling out EXTREMELY slow because I never see any hairs and it still looks the same as it did when I first noticed it. Im not worried about it, if it starts getting too bad I'll just shave it all.

Medical hair restoration.

Living in So Fla. you hear more about it.


I don't know anything else about it, except that they surgically transfer hair follicles on your head, meaning that it will grow and all, but damn. WTF?

I noticed my hair was a little thinner when I was 22. I'm 28 now, and it looks exactly the same.

I started to notice my hairline recede when I was around 23. I have since used a Mach3 on it every other day. Funny thing is that my hairline hasn't receded any further since then but I love having a bald head. Also, before getting married, having a bald head increased my game two-fold. I had girls walk up to me ask to touch my head all the time. I used to worry about loosing my hair, now I really don't care cause I shave it either way.

Back in like 1992, I knew a guy that used Rogaine. That was when it was prescription and very expensive. He said it worked really well (when I met him, I couldn't tell he had any hair loss).

I ran into him at a party about six months later and he had pretty bad hair loss. He said it just became too expensive to continue but that he lost far more hair after starting and stopping Rogaine. He wasn't sure if that was a side-effect or if he would have normally lost that much hair without the Rogaine.

I know a guy who's been using Propecia for about 10 years and there's no way you'd be able to tell he's ever had any hair loss. But that requires a prescription.

Good luck.

I've got the Gallagher look going except for the hat. I've been thinking of that Bosley Hair Replacement seriously now for awhile. I need to call and see what the cost is, I'm sure it'll be a couple grand or more.

I had a buddy who did the hair implant thing. He said it was both expensive and painful. He only did a couple of treatments then quit.

Not if you order it from an overseas online pharmacy. And yes there are some reputable ones. I wouldnt use that shit though, its rare but it can give you man boobs that will never go away no matter how much you exercise.

Eww. I've never heard that before. I can assure you that my buddy doesn't have man-boobs but wow. That's nasty.

As Darth Vader would say, "It is too late for me, son." They have pictures representing baldness levels on the side of the box which indicate how effective Rogaine will be for you - under the one that matches my level of baldness, it says "put the box back on the shelf and get a f#cking hat."

I do the shave thing as well. Wish I'd started doing it a long time before I did.

Unless you have a lumpy, misshapen head, that's probably your best bet. Just embrace the horror and move on with your life.
