Re: rogaine or propecia?
Lucas, i have a friend who's family has a history of hairloss.
My friend would probably just have hair on his sides.
But he found a combo that grows hair.
Now he has a full set of hair.
He takes Propecia and uses 5% Rogaine foam along with Retin A cream.
It was found out, that that applying Retin-A with Minoxidil increases the absorption of Minoxidil on the hair.
Minoxidil is the main incredient in Rogaine.
Retin-A should be applied separately from Minoxidil.
If you mix them together, you will weaken them.
Put the Retin-A on your hair, then wait 15 minutes till it dry's.
Then apply the Minoxidil on your hair.
After awhile, you might want to try 12.5% Minoxidil.
They don't sell this in the stores, but there are places that are now selling it online.
You first want to start off using 5% Minoxidil, so your hair gets used to the Minoxidil.
Then after a year or so, you can start using the 12.5% Minoxidil.
But you have to constantly use all 3 products.
If you stop taking the products, your hair will start to thin again.
