    Has anyone used either Propecia or the Lasercomb? Did it work? Were there any side effects?

    I'm thinking about one or the other, just wanted to get some feedback.

    I've used Propecia, the loss in Libido was enough for me to stop and the fact it is $50 a month, and considering you'll need it the rest of your life it was enough for me just to shave my head and be done with it.

    Look into Shampoo with Nioxin and Tea Tree Shampoo.

    why do you care about hair? fuck i wish my balding would go quicker so i'd have less to shave

    2 kinds of threads i don't understand:

    1. hairloss boo hoo (who cares, it just means there is less to shave off)
    2. Stretch marks boo hoo (who cares, a couple scars never killed nobody)

    I've used propecia and minoxodil, but it hasn't helped me much. As far as sex drive goes, if anything mine increased over the last year or so that I've been using it. However, a buddy of mine started taking propecia and his rapidly receding hairline was totally restored. So... worth a short. Just understand that you'll need to be on the meds for the rest of your life to maintain your hair.

    It's a hit and miss with Propecia. His best option is to see a Doctor who can run tests to see if it's an underlying issue and not just a hereditary thing before he goes and gets the script. Any decent doc would do that anyway.

    The best way to deal with hairloss is to accept it and shave it.

    Eh, most people look better with some hair than no hair, as long as it's not just a fringe or a combover. People that look good shaved also look good with hair... most of the time anyways :hs:

    nizoral shampoo can be quite effective
    nioxin seems to produce results in some users (at least appearance of thickness)

    if your face is ugly you're going to look fugly with or without the hair. So just accept the reality and shave it off

    He doesn't have to chrome it, can shave it down to a # 1 or #2 even a 3 depending on where the balding is happening.

    Instead of paying $50/m or whatever it is for Propecia. Many people buy Proscar and cut it into quarters or fifths. does the same thing and save $$

    might as well save up the money you'd spend on shit to keep your hair and invest it in orals.

    IVe been using Nioxin lately and I have a good feeling about it. Supposed to wash DHT out of your scalp daily.
