This is a difficult question so i will try to guess relying on my 30 years in this business. Using a 70% probability (my opinion), by the age of 26 and using the HAIRCHECK instrument and trichoscopy you will know your final balding pattern, a 80% statistical probability (my opinion), by the age of 30 […]
When I was around 14 my brother took me to the barber and made me get haircuts that looked good but required a hair dryer to maintain the look which I wasn’t good with. Every morning after having a shower I would use a shitty hair dryer on the max setting on my hair for […]

The V-shaped hairline is the typical mature male hairline. I have written about hairlines here:https://newhair.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/phenotype-article-published.pdf which covers the different hairline shapes and how you get them as you get older. This link shows examples of both types of hairlines with some good photos: https://newhair.com/baldingblog/juvenile-vs-mature-hairline-am-i-going-bald-with-photos/
There doesn’t seem to be a consensus among studies with finasteride’s or dutasteride’s effect on women? Premenopausal women should not take finasteride or dutasteride because if they became pregnant, the baby would have genital developmental problems. These drugs work in about half of post-menopausal women for hair loss.
Just coming back to leave an anecdote of my experiences on fin, as I remember how useful I found these sorts of posts in the past. I’ve been on fin 2.5 years now. I was initially on the recommended dosage of 1mg until just before the 2 year mark sides started to appear in my […]
I grew out my hair a while ago and noticed way more hairs falling out in the shower and kinda freaked out too. It turned out that I was just noticing it more because it was longer 99% sure the answer is no, but wanted to ask just in case. I’ve been on finasteride for […]

For the scientists in our group who are interested in how the drug works, finasteride is a competitive inhibitor to DHT and the effectiveness of this is shown in the graph below. Note that the inhibition works even at lower doses. The degree of inhibition at the AR receptor does not correlate directly with the […]
I gave him two choices of hairlines and he selected the lower one and that is what he got.
I’ve heard of new “DPI” hair transplants that are supposed to look even more natural. Does anybody have any opinions? I heard the biggest advantage is the density you can achieve with a low graft count. I just want to reconstruct my temples (I am 25 and they are just starting to go). If I […]
This is an easy pattern for an expert’s eye to predict as outlined (in the right photo I marked up the left photo). The Norwood Class 5A pattern has a narrow crown component and when this man completes his balding pattern he will be bald back to the top of his crown (indicated on the […]

Saturday 0.25mg Sunday missed a pill (hurt my leg playing football and was in hospital for scans) Monday 0.25 Tuesday 0.25 Wednesday 0.25 So here’s my question. I have taken in total 1mg of finastaride and last […]
This man posted his photos on Reddit.com, and although it looks ok, it still looks like a wig. It will eventually pull out all of the hair from the glues used to attached it to the scalp, and the overall cost will eventually be more than a hair transplant
