I am using Minoxidil twice a day, in the morning and before bed. Also I take 1 mg of Finasteride, which is the generic for propecia. So far I see grow (about 1 month anfter I started) but it is growing very slowly.

It does work. You need to use it twice a day. That is a problem however. Misleading advertising. They say it is not oily, dries up clear, not sticky…BS. It kind of dries up but is sticky in your hair due to the Propylene Glycol ( anti freeze ). It turns light brown hair a silvery gray color and blonde hair some other color which I forget. This washes out. It will flake off like dandruff until you wash your hair good. There is no way to use this product twice a day unless you can wash your hair twice and then the stuff must remain in your hair for 4 or 5 hours before washing. So unless you want to wear a hat all day or have nothing else to do but sit around the house. But hair will grow as long as you keep using it. Stop and it falls out. Also when using try not to get it on anything but the bald spot on the crown as it causes hair to fall out before any grows and I now have much thinner hair on top than I did and it is not usually good for re-growing hair in that area.
