    I'm not too familiar with lipogaine. I was just looking online. It seems to have both aspects to fight hairloss. The regrowth of minoxidil and the DHT combatting effects of finasteride?

    definitely nowhere near finasteride though, herbal dht blockers are not strong. azelaic acid is ok but still finasteride is mountains above

    I just have bad reactions to finasteride, so don't think I'll be taking it again any time soon as long as I can maintain with microneedling

    there are many other unique formulations with minoxidil

    before I bought Lipogaine I was using Xandrox 5% with azelaic acid and another good one is this one:

    I thought Lipogaine removed Az. acid from their formula? Also, are you using the quick dry one or the regular?

    I also need to ask: Have you ever used minoxidil prior to needling?

    They come up with a workaround and just call it Azetinol instead.

    So let me start by saying nice results and documentation and thanks for sharing. Not taking anything away, but diffuse thinners can look drastically better with slightly longer hair length alone. I'd be very curious to see your hair at identical length as the before photos, especially at the crown.

    I meant have you ever tried minoxidil on its own before combining it with needling?

    Yeah for two months end of 2017, early 2018. Gave me shedding and saw nothing else, though it was very little time.
    This time I have gotten no shedding on minoxidil combined w/ needling

    Cheers. And are you using the red or blue bottle (regular or quick dry) of Lipogaine?

    @layabout hair is looking good my man!
    How did finasteride burn you? And how did you recover?

    Lowered libido drastically and made it very difficult for me to get erections. Morning wood gone as well.

    I just got off it. I tried taking it on three separate time intervals (the second being for a few months) and every time just got off it and returned back to normal in two weeks.
