Why I have a hard time trusting hair loss pills

My boyfriend and I have been together for 3 years and between the day after graduation and about a year ago, I started to notice his hair was changing faster than most men our age. 

I wasn't sure if it was normal and was curious as to why it was happening. I was confused and upset with my self for feeling a little embarrassed for him. I wanted to do something to help but felt useless as I have never had to deal with anything like this before. 

At thanksgiving last year, we took family photos and my uncle Rick (bless his soul) noticed how I was looking at our photo and made a comment that both relieved and embarrassed me a little. He asked "Is James ready for the big chop?" 

This was the first time I had imagined James with out his wavey brown hair and my heart sunk. I took this moment to confide in my uncle and share my feelings with someone I knew wouldn't judge. My uncle told me of these new pills that men can take that help slow down the hair loss process. 

I went online, did my research, and ordered my first bottle of Finasteride and Minoxidil. I ordered it for James and had it arrive the day before his 24th birthday. It came right on time and he was ecstatic. I was relieved because I was expecting slight embarrassment but it went better than I could have imagined!

Within weeks of taking these pills, James' started loosing energy and was loosing his desire for me slowly. His hair kept falling out and his lethargy only grew as the days passed. When we got to the end of the bottles. We decided to quit this treatment. James' energy came back almost instantaneously. We immediately switch to "on the surface" solutions and tried Heavylox. I bought him a 90 day supply and almost instantaneously, he was back to his old self and excited as ever. Needless to say, cosmetic solutions are the most effective, least risky solution to hair thinning and I would recommend it to anyone experiencing anything similar to us!
