Hello everyone newbie here,

My name is James and I'm 23 years old. I'm writing this hoping for some advice and/or some opinions for my journey, and also to keep track of it. So a little background of myself, I'm Chinese and none of my family members could grow much facial hair, but my dad could probably grow a decent mustache and goatee if he lets them grow. I've never been able to grow much on my face (a few hairs on my chin and upper lip.) So I started using minoxidil in April 2017, and I see a big difference now but my upper lip and chin still isn't as thick or full I'm not sure which, and there's a fair amount of vellus hair on my face which I really hope will turn terminal. Hair seems to have stopped "developing" (?) or has stopped growing I wonder if I did something wrong.


Daily Routine-

Monday: Apply 1ml minoxidil after morning shower, moisturize after 4 hours, apply 1ml minoxidil after night shower.

Tuesday: One time 1ml Minoxidil at night (Unless I have a break from school that day.)

Wednesday: Apply 1ml minoxidil after morning shower, moisturize after 4 hours, apply 1ml minoxidil after night shower.

Thursday: Apply 1ml minoxidil when I get home from school at 12pm, moisturize after 4 hours, apply 1ml minoxidil after night shower.

Friday: One time 1ml Minoxidil at night (Unless I have a break from school that day.)

Saturday: No minoxidil but use dermaroller at night (first time dermarolling on 16th Sept)

Sunday: One time 1ml Minoxidil at night after 24 hours passed dermarolling the night before.


List of things I'm using-

-Kirkland 5% 6 Months Minoxidil (started 10th April 2017)

-Nivea Soft Moisturizer

-Biotin 5,000mcg (Daily) (started a year ago)

-B12 1,200mcg (Daily) (started 23rd Sept 2017)

-Creatine 3.5g (Daily) (started 23rd Sept 2017)

-Vitafusion MultiVites gummies (Daily)

-Dermaroller 0.5mm (started 16th Sept 2017)


Let me know what you think and if you have any advice for me that would be great, thanks for reading! :)

Hello again, just another update after another month and a half (December 3th, 2017) and again Not much changes hopefully I'll see something new soon, and again any comments or advice will be great! :)

These pictures were taken on November 30th, Front and bottom looking good I guess but I wish there's more, Left looks fairly the same and the right side is still not growing much/anything

Damn dude, I think it looks like you might grow these suckers into terminal :) That looks a lot better than most Asian men I've seen try minoxidil!

Ahhh! Thank you so much! It feels amazing having someone tell me that, it means a lot, because it was so discouraging when my progress seems to have stopped  :')
