Survived for well over a week on a drop of Kirkland a day orally. Shedding has started rather quick, even beard hairs will come off sometimes. So far it's manageable though. Will try and work it up to 5mg a day over time.
Just started 5g of MSM daily (2.5 twice). Expecting faster hair growth and healthier feel/look to my hair. Others on megadoses of 10+ grams (which I'll do so myself) have reported new hairs sprouting as well as any itch they had subsiding. Will see if I can achieve any of that myself.
Recently started 10ml of Castor oil a day orally. It has enhanced both hair growth speed and facial hair quality before at half the dosage.
Too early for hair growth difference, but my beard has definitely benefited. Particularly the soul patch is what I'd like to improve (without minoxidil) and it certainly feels like it's growing longer and faster by the day.
I'll be documenting key points of my journey here. Mainly as reference for myself along the way, though if anyone stumbles across these I hope there's something you can take from my mistakes or potential success.
