Trying Keeps 5% Minoxidil for My Thinning Crown
It was a candid photo of me facing away from the camera that made me realize, “Shit, I’m balding!” I had always run with the old adage that you inherit your maternal grandfather’s baldness genes, and since he died with a full head of hair, I figured I was probably fine. After all, if you don’t have a receding hairline, it can be hard to tell what’s going on back there. But, this was unmistakable.
As soon as I saw the photo, I started doing research, eventually learning what most of you reading this already know: some combination of finasteride, minoxidil, biotin and other assorted vitamins, is the best way for mere mortals to tackle male pattern baldness, clinically known as androgenic alopecia.
Eventually, I made my way to Keeps’ website, which I had heard of already and followed for their marketing and branding prowess. But now, as a consumer in their target demo, I had a new mission: grow some hair back on the top of my head!
I settled on the 5% Minoxidil solution, which at the time was the only option (they introduced a foam application some time later).
