The avodart experiment – part 2

Looks like the stuff is working. While I have less hair now than at any point in my life, I am happy to report that the devastatingly  rapid hair loss and tingling has basically stopped or has tapered to normal.  As I mentioned at the start of this experiment, my hair was falling out at a dramatic rate. I was literally losing a hundred hairs a day. No new growth yet, but I am relived that at least  I can slow down or completely stop the hair loss with this stuff. The next step is to get a hair cut and face the reality of what I am working with. One benefit of having curly hair, is that it helps mask the bald areas on the top of my head..LOL I think though for the sake of the experiment,  I should cut it shorter.    I am also considering adding some supplements to my experiment, possibly some rogaine a few times a week to encourage growth. What do you guys think?

I’ve been pretty much busy all week moving into a new apartment. Yesterday, the cable guy finally came through and hooked up my internet. So I’m back now and plan to be posting more consistently. Sadly no new hairs to brag about yet. It’s been less than 3 weeks, so i’m not going to cry about it. On the positive side I am seeing less hairs in my hands when I style it in the morning. I know this can be pure chance at this point. I understand that hair grows in cycles, so I am sure I will be experiencing some growth and shedding that is unrelated to avodart. I am also noticing less of that tingling/burning sensation I get in waves over my scalp all the time that drives me crazy and makes me think I don’t have much time left with my hair. It will probably take some actual improvement of my hair quality before I can attest to the drug working and not some placebo effect.

After 1 week, not much progress to report on. No noticeable side effects either. As I mentioned before, I am using a better camera this time around for the head shots.
