Thought I'd share this on here as I've had good success with minoxidil to help slow down my impending baldness.
First of all I have no big issue with going bald. I'd prefer not to, but I'm not the type to be trying anything and everything to halt the inevitable signs of ageing.
I'd started to go a little bit thin on top. We're probably talking 25% thinner in a wide central channel. I think I'm eventually heading for a Homer Simpson....!
A friend of mine recommended that I try one of the many products (Regain being the best known) with minoxodil in. After a bit of searching around I found somewhere that did it for 30 odd quid for 6 months and gave it a go.
Nothing for the first 3 or 4 months and then....a slight perceptable change that continued to get better. Here I am about 15 months later and it's fair to say that I'm no longer 25% thinning on top at all. Very happy indeed.
Just thought I'd share the recommendation as I've been more than pleased with the results. Willing to take the stick for: Being vain, just shave it, etc etc! For the cost, time and effort required I can't complain and want to pass on my experience.
