    Testing Out Ru58841for 2 Months And Then Ru Mixed With Minoxidil After

    Most people over wash their hair. I use to wash daily, now its usually every 2, sometimes 3 days, but I'll use a dry shampoo between if my scalp feels too oily or if my hair texture feels off. By day 4 I have to wash it or it feels absolutely disgusting.

    Testing Out Ru58841for 2 Months And Then Ru Mixed With Minoxidil After

    I tried head and shoulders, it left my hair feeling nice, but wasn't much different than nizoral for overall scalp health. I definitely believe the inflammation is key. I need to get back into microneedling, but I hate doing it if I know I'll be wearing concealers within 2 days. With the...

    Testing Out Ru58841for 2 Months And Then Ru Mixed With Minoxidil After

    Yup, exactly. That's why now I'm self prescribing otezla and fighting my psoriasis. I never worried about it because it isnt on any visible skin. I've been so focused on my hair that I put zero worry into it. Now there's a high possibility they are linked.

    Testing Out Ru58841for 2 Months And Then Ru Mixed With Minoxidil After

    I use nizoral once to twice a week. I'm waiting for otezla to arrive in the mail. I have mild untreated psoriasis on my scalp, mostly sides where my hair is really thick and covers it. I read studies where using otezla to treat scalp psoriasis caused near full regrowth for guys with thin hair...

    Does using Hair Spray on Toppik actually help with water holding? i mean like go swimming or just pull my head on the water

    Fibers alone, with or without hairspray, will not hold up when swimming if your head goes under or if you get splashed. Even being caught in the rain will destroy the illusion of hair. It is pretty damn good in the wind, tested this extensively (drove down an unused road several times at...

    My recent scary RU58841 Experience (7 words)

    I'm on 6 months of RU. First 2 months was RU in KB, last 4 has been RU in minoxidil. Only side so far is that my scalp gets dry. I think the side is from the minoxidil. I didn't have this issue when using the RU in KB.

    A warning about chronic, long term minoxidil use

    Very true. So who is going to mimic his medications and see if they can regrow hair? Maybe there is something to his method. Maybe we just need to fix his dosages to not end up looking like that? :)

    Rogaine alters existsing hair to be dependant on Rogaine

    One study looked at the efficacy of minoxidil 3 percent for eyebrows and compared it to another hair loss treatment called bimatoprost (Latisse) in a 0.03 percent concentration. After 16 weeks, about 50 percent of participants saw hair regeneration nearly equally with both products. Based on...

    There is HOPE for genetic alopecia!

    Most reviews I've read said anywhere between 2 months and a year to know if it is working. I picked up the iRestore about 2 weeks ago after doing a bunch of research. I went with iRestore because of the return policy. They give 6 months, but people have had it extended by customer service by up...

    Rogaine alters existsing hair to be dependant on Rogaine

    I used it on my beard for 8 months because I wanted to fill in my cheeks a bit more and extend my terminal length. I filled in decently and went from struggling to push 2 inches to an 8 inch beard. I haven't touched minoxidil for my face the last 2 months since I'm happy with my results. I...

    Rogaine alters existsing hair to be dependant on Rogaine

    Your endocrinologist sounds like he is uninformed, uneducated on basics of hair loss, and if I were you I'd find someone that actually researches before opening their mouth. Sorry if this comes off as abrasive, but giving a patient sh*t information as facts is outright dangerous and unethical...

    What's the best brand of hair fiber to use for men?

    I've always had great results with dark brown, even though my hair is closer to medium brown. When I looked into dermmatch I kept hearing about the issues with some colors tinting red or orange, but dark brown hasn't had this issue for me.
