Minoxidil slows hair loss, sometimes it stops it.
But if, like me, you're balding because of your shit genetics, then it simply won't stop it. Nothing, to my knowledge, will, unless you're filthy rich and get an ultra-expensive hair job.
Minoxydil is here to slow the process, it's best started when you still have a decent hairline.
No matter what other says, the anons that suggeste to shave it and accept it are right.
For most males, balding is about genetics. You can't rewrite DNA, it's like when you're born short or with a weak jawline. You can either get rich to fix it, or improve what you can improve. Life is unfair like that.
Shaving your head clean and owning up to the fact that you're bald goes a long way. You'll never be as succesful as Chad who's got luxurious hair but that's just the way life fucking is, you won't get as many mires from women but you don't need to drown in a thousand pussy anyway, you only need some.
Lift, improve your diet, work on your confidence, your social skills, groom yourself. Those are the parts of you you can improve, those should need focusing.
