I’m now mid mid way through my first year of Uni I have passed my first year exams and I am livin’ it fairly large. My relationship with the internet is now strong. The internet and I are close. It provides me with music, Dolphin Olympics, endless funny videos to share with mates and a glorious selection of pornography! However, the issue still remains that I’m waking up each morning with an unusual amount of hair left on my pillow. And something that I didn’t mention previously: my scalp actually hurt! This needed researching…
It was a fairly easy decision: I’d quickly knock one off (with the intention of improving my concentration) and then do some internet research into hair loss and scalp pain. What I found was overwhelmingly depressing! From memory these are some of the information that the internet provided:
- Spending £100s a month on propecia was a sure way to stop hair loss and even induce hair regrowth
- Spending £100s a month on propecia appeared to have horrendous side-effects, like impotence!
- Spending £100s a month on propecia would have zero benefit.
- Spending £100s a month on propecia would have short term benefits followed by accelerated hair loss in the future.
- Lots of famous people have had hair loss treatment! For example George Clooney. Who’d have thought!
- Spending £10s money on generic minoxidil was a sure way to stop hair loss and even induce hair regrowth
- Spending £10s money on generic minoxidil would have some impact on stopping hair loss
- Spending £10s money on generic minoxidil would have zero impact on stopping hair loss
- Hair loss surgery seems promising but bloody expensive
- Diet supplement have mixed reviews but seem low risk and not too expensive.
My plan: Buy 4 months worth of dietary supplements designed to halt hair loss; buy 4 months worth of generic minoxidil; see what happens after 4 months.
