I’m 25 and I used finasteride for more than 3 years now, with no sucess at all. I also had a lot of problems with dandruff and irritation on my face and scalp. I was really worried about this, than I decided to take dutasteride. I’m also taking now minoxidil 2%, and using folligen spray and revivogen shampoo. I noticed some very little hairs in my left temple. Not too many. But I also felt a difference in my sex drive, and some shedding. My dandruff desapired, I think because anf the folligen, it really resolved my irritation in the first week. Do you think I should keep this treatment? Should I worry about the shedding and libido, or this could be a transitional state?
thanks a bunch!
Finasteride may be working by preventing hair loss progression, but just not growing new hair. I gather that the dutasteride has reduced your libido, which is not a surprise at all. Folligen spray contains copper peptides which have had some unsubstantialed scientific claims for hair re-growth. I am happy to hear of your positive response to the dandruff with the routine you are using. Hair shedding and libido having appeared brings you to a decision: Is the benefits (or proposed benefits) worth the price? How do you rate your sex drive balanced against having hair?
