Your hair looks good. If I were younger, I would definitely get a transplant.

I went the "high minoxidil" route, and trust me, Minoxidil will fail you. I went up as high as 30%.

The strange thing is, my hair grows much faster with Minoxidil.

Do they mix the 12.5% with hydrocortisone? Just curious what they put in there.

Right now I'm taking Dustasteride (0.5%). My crown has filled in, it's about as thick as my back is now.
I actually started minoxidil first, it was a few months later when i started Propecia

I did have good initial results which i maintained, whether that is mostly down to propecia alone I'm not sure. I would prefer to not use minoxidil because of the hassle but i wouldn't want to stop now. Had to switch to generic finasteride this month due to propecia shortages

12.5% has azelaic acid in it, it's a cream. 5% is a alcohol bases liquid. I only apply in crown and mid scalp these days.

I still use Minoxidil. It's just the 5% foam solution. The Dustasteride is doing the work.

Just curious, why not put it on your hair line? Unless you only have vertex thinning.

I used to do that but i stopped. I started doing it again for a few months while transplant growing in. I don't bother now because my transplant has grown in

Actually, @Admin question for you:

Did your transplants continue to develop post 12 months?

Shaved my head today.

My hair was getting unmanageable with no trip to the barbers in site. Haven't had short hair since i was a kid so i was worried in particular about crown and how overall density would look that short.

I am pleasantly surprised with results. Delighted with crown and hair line - i can't even see crown thinning. I can see overall nw7 pattern in certain lighting particularly but overall im very happy

Your hair loss is very mild and I imagine you could style that to look like a full head of hair so easily.

Only very slightly. It was mostly the existent hair becoming less frizzy thanks to a further healing of the scarring, which improves the hair's overall aesthetics. That kind of improvement can occur up to 1.5 to 2 years years after the hair transplant.

Sorry for the late reply, I hope you're doing alright in these strange times :).
