I skipped the hair transplant barb and any reference to spine because it would be too cruel to mention.
But I thought high T levels were the the reason hair falls out.

OK, maybe half as long usually but pretty wild hair regardless. If I don't cut it for 3-4 months it ends like that.

Neutrogena isn't bad if you live in the sticks. Andalou is very good.
I'm afraid to take Finasteride (Propecia) cause I heard it causes brainfog or depression that doesn't go away. And what do you mean they sell it at Costco. It's a prescription drug.

I use those plus Rogaine Foam. Honestly, except for a few new strands, new hair is not going to grow back, so it is more just trying to maintain/minimize hair loss (I still have enough hair, but thinning is definitely noticeable)

I would not touch propecia with a 10 ft pole. I took it for a month and stopped, didn't like the way it made me feel. Plus the side effects and/or what others have reported (depression, sexual dysfunction, etc...), it is simply not worth it.

As others have said as well, just get a hair cut that best fits it. For the most part I have always kept my hair short, so not a huge deal.

My thinning is not all that bad. It's in my crown area. I was thinking about spending 5K for a hair transplant back there.

The only thing I am not sure, it sounds like in some situations it is recommended to use Propecia after a hair transplant, or possibly prepare for future hair transplants (i.e. if the doctor feels you are still susceptible to future hair loss with your existing hair).

Yes, I recall a doctor saying Propecia should be used after a hair transplant.
Fortunately for me, at my age, it's not bad at all. If only the hair stylist cut it in a way where I could cover it with other hair. Next time.

They are. Medication like Propecia reduce the T-levels...

Re: Shampoo for thinning hair?

I think at your / my situation we're well past fog depression etc 😀

You need a prescription for it but Costco has by far the best price. Used to be $16 for 90 days supply now $20. Insurance doesn't cover it (used to) and CVS is like $120 for 90 days...

Re: Shampoo for thinning hair?

So your hair is falling out and you need something to keep it in.

How about a paper bag.

Hot women, beer, men only. What could possibly go wrong!? Are we still talking about cutting hair? Sounds like a strip club! 😁

Maybe, not always!

This I know, a lack of T makes your hair fall out. T being Trust in your case.


It’s not the amount of testosterone or DHT that causes baldness; it’s the sensitivity of your hair follicles. That sensitivity is determined by genetics.
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is made from testosterone by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase. It can also be made from DHEA, a hormone more common in women. DHT is found in skin, hair follicles, and the prostate. The actions of DHT and the sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT is what causes hair loss.

Re: Shampoo for thinning hair?

What ulyssesheart says is basically true, except that the amount of DHT does matter. As you age, your body makes more of the DHT that causes those sensitive follicles to weaken and die. A young man has those same sensitive follicles, but because his body is not producing DHT, he's keeps his hair. It's only when his body produces too much DHT that it affects the follicles.

There are some chemicals that can inhibit the amount of DHT that your body makes (e.g. Finasteride, aka Propecia). There is a non-prescription supplement called saw palmetto that some people believe performs the same function. However, I don't think anyone has ever had dramatic results with any solution. There is still no real cure for hair loss. Whoever invents one will be a billionaire.
