Since early on my teenage life, I have been losing hair due to hereditary hair loss pattern. My great grandfather was bald, my grandfather was bald, my father isn't bald but he has thin hair and balding. But me I am going bald quickly. I have tried a lot of stuff and products to curb and stop my hair loss, I have been able to stop hair loss to a certain degree but am unable to regrow new strong hair.

I use chlorine filter on my bathroom shower head to clear up the chlorine in the water. I use sebamed hair loss shampoo to clean my hair. I cut down on my sugar intake in my food because I am aware of how much damage sugar can do to a person's hair health. I prevent using hair oil or hair gel on my scalp as these things can cause blockage of my hair follicles pores. I use comb that has big gap teeth to avoid pulling out my precious hair, since every strand of hair means a lot to people with hair loss problem.

Someone suggested me to try out Propecia or Finasteride tablet and they said that it helps in regrowing lost hair. I am willing to try out new products but am skeptical of the side effects it could cause for me. The price of using Propecia is quite expensive too as I can't afford to buy expensive tablets for prolonged uses. My budget are limited and I need to know that the Propecia tablets work if I were to continue taking them for a long period of time. Does anyone have any actual experience in using Propecia (Finasteride) for regrowing lost hair or stopping hair loss?
