    Great results after 5 months! Started balding when I was 24 and up until Jan 2018, I only used minoxidil and DHT blocking shampoo. I saw immediate results the first two years and it slowly faded thereafter. Finally decided to make the jump to finasteride this January (2018) and I am very, very pleased with my results. My pictures attached start on Jan 29th up until today. Confidence has been restored!

    I will say, persistence and consistency has been key for me.

    Regimine:

    1mg finasteride daily
    minoxidil on crown 5x a week
    derma roll entire scalp 2x a week
    essential oil mix 5 days a week (leave in for 8 hours)
    DHT blocking shampoo 3x a week
    Nizoral 4x a week
    Essential hair vitamins

    LOL, this is a troll. There's isn't a human on earth who can grow that much hair between #3 and #4 in six weeks.

    Great success man. Can you give some details about a few things?
    The essential oil mix: what do you take and how do you apply? When you say 8 hours, do you mean overnight or are you applying daytime and wear a cap or something?

    Also, what depth are you derma-rolling? 1.5mm?
    Thanks.

    Thanks man! I apply the oil every morning and wear a hat to work, then when I get off, wash with Nizoral.

    Routine:
    I start with Rosemary oil only (good for blood circulation to the scalp and prevents dandruff), let it dry, then apply the oil mixture below, which I mix together in a plastic squeeze bottle.

    Essential oil mix:

    Jojoba oil (1oz)
    Castor oil (2oz)
    Vitamin E oil (1oz)
    EMU oil (1oz)
    Coconut Oil (1oz)
    Almond Oil (2oz)

    Derma roller is a 0.5 but I'm about to go up to a 1.0.

    Hope this helps!

    Not a troll. Those pictures are 100% real results.

    You're confused because #3 picture my hair has oils applied and #4,5,6 it is dry.

    Attached is a picture of my hair currently with oils applied.

    In short, you're wrong bud and you're the troll.

    You derma roll over where you have hair now??? I bought a 1.5mm and I only mess with the temples. Im not sure if I should hit my vellus hair vertex or if once the hair goes terminal if you should still dermal roll at all.

    Like if you derma roll on your temple and start getting even vellus hairs to generate, isnt it better to leave it alone and let finasteride and minoxidil take over?

    My understanding is that you're derma-rolling to increase absorption of Minoxidil. Therefore, you would derma-roll all over. I'm sure if re-growth is strong you could probably cut back on the frequency.

    Do you think, once your hair has thickened to a point where you're happy with it, that you'll do something different with the essential oil? In other words, I assume you don't want to wear oil on your head for the rest of your life?

    To my knowledge from research, doing it all over increases blood flow to the hair follicles and activates the skins natural regeneration process therefor providing you with a healthier scalp. I only use minoxidil on my crown, so it benefits me there for extra absorption.

    Once I get the results I want and hope for, I'll probably cut it down to a couple times a week overnight instead of during the day. I don't mind the oil especially if it helps with regrowth and sustaining a healthy scalp and strong hair follicles.

    Correct, minoxidil on crown only for about 6 years and results were fading. Brain fog was my main side.

    How do you derma roll your scalp where hair exists? My crown is full of vellus hairs and I tried it for the first time on the crown last night. I snagged what I consider to be a terminal hair right off it.

    And do you still derma roll the scalp you have now where your hair is very thick?

    whatever product you use regarding hairloss, you must be willing to wait a minimum of 4 months (120 days) before you are likely to see any results.
