The avodart experiment

Since it’s literally been a month since my last post,  you would think I would have a lot to discuss. The truth is that this is a slow process.   after 3 months on avodart, I finally feel comfortable cutting my hair short. The crown areas is actually starting to fill out on its own and I no longer feel it necessary to mask this area with the rest of my hair. Yes,  I still have a balder area on the top of my head, but I feel confident saying that I am no longer “balding” and I am now “growing.”  It’s pretty self evident that this result can be attributed solely to avodart.  There has been a lot of real improvement and again no side effects.

This first new growth is looking more prominent and spreading more through my hairline.  I also am noticing thicker hair in general, and when my head is wet you can now see follicles coming to life throughout my head.  The overall length of my hair getting bushy how I usually keep it,  so I am hoping by next haircut    few weeks, I will see some new revelation in the crown area. One interesting side effect (not necessarily a bad one) is the new hairs coming in are darker, in some cases black.  I am strangely also noticing this in my facial hair. I have naturally dirty blond hair, so I was somewhat perplexed to see many black hairs growing into my face.

It’s been almost 2 months now and finally the day has come that I am seeing new hairs. I was brushing my teeth last night when I noticed for the first time a patch of new hair growing into my hairline. This is obviously a long way off from the big bald spot on the top of my head growing in, but this is unquestionably a positive breakthrough.
