The only two things that I know about it are that it only works on certain types of baldness and you have to keep taking it.  I had an ex that looked into it and it would not have worked for him.  Just something to research before you buy it.

Fiance tried that and everything else and it didn’t slow his balding down one bit. He now shaves his head. He started balding around age 18 so he went through some insecurity issues. It may be something he just has to get through.

Finally a question I know something about!

Propecia. He can get it at:

I used to be a hair tranplant tech/nurse @ the Minneapolis Bosley. Yeah I know the commercials are sketcky,  but It is not a scam they can help him. Propecia runs about 250.00 for a 3 mos supply and insurance does not cover it.  Rogaine ONLY works in the crown area, it is useless anywhere else. There are independent places he could go to get the meds too, but I do not know the NJ area to tell you anything about it.

@Ms.Sugarsnap:  I have heard it comes from your maternal grandfather. Fiance doesn’t know his biological father so who knows where he got it. It was tough for him and he wore a lot of hats for the longest time. Now he is used to it but admits if he could find a cure he’d have longer hair. I love his baldyness. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was different at first but I love him so it grew on me when he decided to start shaving it completely. At this point he’s just tired of the time and money that goes into keeping it shaved. One day he’ll grow out what he has left (which isn’t much now).

My best friend and lots of my gay hairstylist friends take Propecia! Works great for them.

@xokaleneox let me know if you have anymore questions. By The Way they might try to sell him a hair transplant surgery. (which is a legit thing), or a wig thingy, but he can just say no. They have to go through their speal of all his options, but generally they are not pushy.

As a girl who has been dealing with alopecia since I was 17, I am happy to report that rogaine does work…the problem is, it seems to work differently for everyone, if at all…some people experience no regrowth, some people have moderate regrowth…etc. for me, it’s helped maintain density around my hairline, though I still have to wear human hairpieces and such. It’s not so bad as there are a lot of cosmetic options. PM me if you want to talk more about hairloss! ๐Ÿ™‚

@Pixie79 I’m glad to hear that Rogaine works for you. It does work differently for every person. The docs are trained to tell people it only works in the crown, but they tell people to put it everywhere.
