eb80's Story - 32 - Androgenetic Alopecia Hi All, I have been reading the forum for I while and I would like to introduce myself. I am 32, I live in London, and I am being struggling with my hair for over 5 years. I always had very thin and straight hair, and my mother and one of my sisters also suffer of thinning hair on the top. I have been diagnoses Androgenetic Alopecia for the first time in 2007 and being given minoxidil 2%, unfortunately without good results. In 2009 I moved to UK, and in 2011 I was so fed up with my hair that I decided to try a lace extension system, hoping to solve my problem just hiding it. I am still using a lace system today and to be honest I am quite regretting to take this decision without trying to do more to regrow my own hair first. Lace extensions look good when you just step out the hairdresser and maybe the first couple of month, but then they become a nightmare for care and maintenance! Today, if I think how much time I spend every morning trying to make my hair look presentable, and every time I have to wash my hair, I think I was better off with toppik. Anyway, I have decided to try again minoxidil 5% twice a day and I am also using revivogen and taking a vitamin b complex. I hope to improve my situation enough to have the extensions removed at the next realignment, in February 2013. Obviously I am not expecting miracles in 5/6 months, but hoping my situation could improve enough to allow me cut my hair short and using hair concealers and get rid of the lace system. I wanted to ask if anybody had experience trying to apply minoxidil and revivogen while wearing interlace extensions? I am attaching the pictures taken at the hairdresser salon in August 2012 when the system was removed and reattached to my hair. Any advice is more than welcome, thanks!
