I am 25, have been told by multiple doctors around that I have pretty good hair, but maybe within 10 years might have some noticeable troubles. I have wanted to be proactive, and find a good at home program to combat and keep thicker hair.
I was told to use a year program of laser therapy, but then directed otherwise by others as it might be a scam. I decided to start basic and work to more advanced ideas: Currently using Rogaine Foam 2 times a day, and Finestride 1mg a day.
Research just leads to thousands of new avenues: I am looking for a proven system and no sales rep with a bogus product:
considering Kevis, Provillus, or Revivogen, are any of these good, if so which is best?
Shampoos: are they helpful with DHT blockers and reducing oily hair? Which is best?
Laser: Igrow/comb worth a try?
Would definitely love the shampoos for the reduction in oil and itching, look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.
If your doctors have told you that your hair is fine, there’s no reason to start using any product proactively. You might end up doing more harm than good. I hope you’re not treating yourself, but since you’re on finasteride (Propecia), I’ll assume your doctor prescribed it to you because he/she saw some loss… and in that case, stick with that daily routine. I’ve seen finasteride slow down and even reverse existing hair loss in young men. Rogaine hasn’t shown to be as beneficial, but many people do use it and it has been proven to show some regrowth benefits in the crown.
If you get your hair bulk assessed in different parts of the scalp and follow that up with yearly tests, you will know where you are on your hair loss timeline. The key is to stop the hair loss from happening, and the earlier you start the finasteride (provided that your bulk analysis says you are in the balding process) the better you will keep what you have.
Unfortunately, there are many scams out there, and many products that are marketed and sold to people that will seemingly pay anything to stop the future from happening. Treating hair loss isn’t perfect, for if it was you wouldn’t likely see many balding men. We’ve have covered much of these shampoos and treatments here before, so using the search in the top right of the site should show my opinions on those. Most of them don’t show benefits that match the claims they make. You can try out as many shampoos or lasers that you’d like… but keep in mind that if you waste your time on things that don’t work, then each passing day is another step closer to meeting your genetic balding state.
