Has anyone used any sort of hair regrowth products?
My fiancee's cousin used Nioxin and had good results. I heard that if you use rogaine, as soon as you quit using it, you lose the hair you regrew.
Anyone ever used any?

Yes, my hair is thinning, I'm still young (24 in 3 weeks) and it's a little embarrasing. Any body that's used it care to share?

Bald is beautiful unless its your head.

We went to he beach and I had a splitting headache.  I couldnt get rid or of it.  I took motrin and nothing.  I went inside and looked at the top of my head and the balding spot was sunburned!

You don't need hair...I haven't needed it for almost 10 years.

I wish it would never grow back.

Rogaine and similar products will, at best, slow down hair loss. Rarely if ever do they regrow any hair. Once you stop using those products, your hair will start to fall out faster than it did before. If you can seriously commit yourself to using Rogaine or Propicia or similar products EVERY SINGLE DAY AS DIRECTED and can afford the 50-75 dollar a month cost, then good luck.

If you don't want to bother, then you can shave your head.

A fully shaved head is better than a balding one, but let's not kid ourselves here. Neither is better than a full head of hair.

Hair transplantation is another alternative but obviously far more expensive. Most men need 2-3 sessions and each one has a nominal cost of around five grand. You get what you pay for so a good doctor with experience is critical. The majority of men who have this (and who went to good doctor) are quite happy with the results.

I used to bitch about the hair falling out but once I shaved my head the morning routine goes a lot quicker, plus a goatee mustache looks meaner with a bald head

I'm only a year older than you and I've noticed a widow's peak starting to form recently... V- shaped hairlines run in the family.  No one notices cuz my hair naturally falls forward, but it scares me though.  

I've been using a specially-made minoxidil formula called Xandrox 15 for the past couple of months and it appears to be working.  Not sure if my juvenile hairline will ever be restored, but the hairs in the treated areas do grow even though they may not have the full thickness as when you were a teen.  It's a 1x/day treatment and you can get it from a guy named Dr. Lee @ minoxidil.com.

Rogaine worked for me when I was about your age.  It did grow hair back (after several months of assiduous application) but I started losing it again after I stopped.  It's a pain to put that crap in 2x a day, makes your hair greasy, and it smells like booze.  People would tell me I reeked of alcohol, I lied that I was drinking the night before rather than admit I was using Rogaine. But it DOES grow hair.

What really works well is Proscar, cut into quarters with a pill splitter.  It's the same drug as Propecia, just a bigger dose.  It stops hair loss within a week.
