    I actually get the Seacrest thing from people quite a bit. I’d certainly love to have his money haha I have always been muscular and lean. I was a very skinny teen and in early twenties I started lifting. I have good genetics. If eat decent and workout daily I get very lean and about 190 at 5’11” tall. If I eat like sh*t and don’t train I get soft but not fat. That summer I hit the gym really hard. It was 2017 when my hair was that long. I’m not quite as lean now cause I hurt my back and took some time off training but I’m recently back at it. I have used steroids in the past when I was in late twenties and early thirties. But I have not used them in many years. I’m considering HRT eventually as I am 47 now. Thanks for the reply.

    Thank you... I really have much better hair now and it has completely maintained for years. I used to post on the two hair loss forums as RSR37 I believe and posted pics of basically a horseshoe pattern of baldness and my whole top of head was completely diffused and miniaturized. It looked like pubic hair lol. I never thought I’d grow it out and feel bangs again. It really took many years to come back and I still have what are called truncated growth cycles. I still shed a lot and I still worry but time has proven that the meds work.

    I’ve always liked the foam and found it to be good at any hair length. Something about it makes the hair “lift” like it’s stronger than it really is. Even with long hair it was fine. I would put it in with wet hair after shower and brush hair out. Then let it air dry. Then brush out and style with hands and surf hair putty. It took awhile to dry but it looked natural and I have waves and curls slightly so looked like surfer hair.

    I started dermarolling within the last few months. I have fairly short hair now and I dermaroll every Sunday and every Wed right out of the shower with a 1.5mm roller. It hurts. I do it for about 10 minutes and my head is very red after. I have been consistent and have not missed any days for the whole 16 weeks I believe it’s been. I started it because I just felt like it made sense after reading about it for a long tine. Seemed like the logical next thing to try. I don’t mind the pain and I believe it has helped. I’m gonna continue it for 6 months and see. My main goal is overall better thickness to my hair in the mid crown area. I have complete coverage now but it is not as thick as I want it.

    Might want to try Spironolactone 5% cream on scalp. They sell it here. And MinoxidilMax.
    I just got new jar. Put it on scalp every opportunity I can. And I swear hairs are growing & getting darker. You can also continue your other regimens. You can get tube of estrogen gel & minoxidil.
    The key is quality products, not counterfeits.
    So try MinoxidilMax 5 % Spironolactone.
    It’s definitely part of answer.

    I usually buy generic finasteride, nizral shampoo and retin a. Best prices on the internet. I’ve also bought lattise and nolvadex and antibiotics and all kinds of sh*t. They are great.
