As you know already, much of the dissonance comes from the fact that "work" means
To proponents, any amount of hair regrowth with any regime at any cost

I'm using rosemary + lavender + cedarwood mixed with aloe vera gel. I may have seen very few new hairs but not 100pc sure whether they are really new or if they came from a few microneedling sessions I did last winter. Hairloss has not progressed while using this mix, but most likely it just...
I think oils+aloe vera gel help with making existing hair healthier and, in my case, to reduce acne. I suspect they promoted very marginal regrowth together with half-arsed needling (I'm lazy). Plus they smell nice. Altogether, I feel motivated to put them on
Unfortunately there is no way to predict the outcome. The good news is that you have hair now and that there are good chances you will keep it for a very long time. I suggest you stop thinking about it, because the problem might well never materialise.
