Follicare?

So I'm shallow as hell and while I can't say for sure, I've been aware of a potentially receding hairline for the last three years. If it's receding, it hasn't been much, but I'd like to try something before it gets to the point of no return.

Anyway, we all see countless hair-growth/maintaining products out there. Follicare actually sounds like it may be for me, but it's costly. Has anyone here tried it or read anything about it that a potential user should know?

I'm toying with the idea of grabbing a two-month supply, but don't wanna pick up something that's not going to work. I should note that I'm not looking for a great deal of growth, since my temples and front of the hairline is the only place I've noticed anything. Other than that, I've got (or so I've been told) nice and thick hair.

Meh. Just shave it all of and go for the "Mr. Clean" look.

Try massaging the bare area with baking soda a little every day. Sometimes that works just fine.

I can't tell if that's a joke or not.

Oh, I should have been more detailed. While you are in the shower, massage with WET baking soda. It seems to stimulate the follicles.

And this is from experience or you read it somewhere? I haven't heard of it, but I'm willing to give most things a shot. I just don't wanna buy baking soda if I don't need to!

Use the baking soda to clean your shower while you're at it.

I also second the shaving-the-head method. I've heard from countless women that they prefer it to trying to look like you aren't going bald.
