“You’re starting to thin a bit up top!” my hairstylist said as she began cutting my hair.
“Really?” I asked as a sudden flash of a completely bald me appeared in my mind’s eye, “Oh sh*t!”
My entire life I was told that I wouldn’t have to worry about going bald since “you get your hair genes from your mother’s side” and my maternal grandparents never had hair loss issues.
My dad’s side, however, has major hair loss issues with both my father and cousin having basically gone bald in their early 20’s.
Eight years later, and my once-glorious head of hair continues to lose volume hair-by-hair on a daily basis.
While I’ve used products like Minoxidil, Bosley and natural shampoos like Aveda, up until last year I never committed to maintaining the process to help stop my constant thinning.
Because honestly, while it is an embarrassing ordeal, I’ve come to terms with it.

My Hair Loss Routine
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of emails about what I personally do on a daily/weekly basis to help maintain and regain control over my hair loss. I figured this would be the best place to quickly add my routine:
Every morning I take a handful of different supplements, those are:
Additionally in the morning:
- I use the generic version of Rogaine from Kirkland – Kirkland Minoxidil
- Every other day I use Nizoral Shampoo that contains 2% Ketoconazole
Before going to bed:
- I Apply Kirkland Minoxidil once again
Once a Week:
- I use a Microneedle, Dr. Pen Ultima A6, at 1.5mm length all around the top of my head where I’m thinning and where my receding hairline starts.
So far my results have been incredible. While I haven’t managed to regrow much of the hair I’ve already lost, there has been a bit of growth there. More importantly, my hair is much thicker, healthier, and I look significantly less bald than I did even 4 years ago.
