Doctor, how are you. I have been on propecia for 2 years, with fairly good results. hair is about the same, but my question is why do I still shed alot of hairs. I just want your opinion on this from your experiences with propecia and hair restoration field. I mean I know your suppose to shed up to 150 hairs a day, but I feel like I shed more. The hair still looks the same, but why is the shedding so much?
The amount of hair I shed I should be slick bald now, but still have a full head of hair with a bit of thinning like it was 2 years ago when I started propecia. when I wake up theres like 20 hairs on pillow, when I shower I shed so much, when I comb I shed so much, and its been like this even before starting propecia, but still have hair.
are there people that shed more and its still normal? I shed thin weak hairs, to thick hairs, and hair still looks same. As I said with the amount I shed I should be slick bald
We still cycle hair and the thin, weak hairs will eventually be lost. Propecia delays the long term hair loss, but it does not stop it completely. If you have not had your hair bulk analyzed, you should have it done. A baseline of hair bulk will tell you over time what is really happening to you.
