Had slow diffuse thinning for years. Just turned 60 with what many thought was a full head of hair. Though i knew it was thinning. Thought I was years away from needing a transplant until switched to Rogaine foam which devastated my hairline within a month. Lost years in days. The company told me to stop using it. So the question is, should I consider a transplant now or wait to see if the hairline grows back? Read a lot about minoxidil shed hair grows back (though all I did was switch brands) and am on another brand now, but grow back at the hairline? I highly doubt it. What do you think?
Without an exam, this is a highly subjective question to answer. Moreover, we do not give medical recommendations on BaldingBlog.
Rogaine (minoxidil) can sometime cause initial shedding, but it should generally reverse over time (should wait at least 1 year). You may see the reversal in as early as 3 months.
