    Just wondering if minoxidil has a bad effect of good hairs. I have been applying it in the temple area and good hairs have been disappearing and im getting just small non existent miniature hairs on the bald spots in the temple. At first i was applying the stuff only to slick spot but now i'm applying some on the actually beginning of the hair line because it gets on there anyway, can that damage those good hairs or is minoxidil just a beneficial drug in general?

    because of the increased blood supply? i dont know.

    thats why it would be best used with fin/dut i guess.

    Interesting

    I understand where you are coming from. Greater blood supply to the hair folicle means they are also getting exposed to more DHT.

    I would say that Finasteride and Minoxidil is therefore a pretty effective combo. Remember some people respond and some people don't. Minoxidil would not have made it through FDA trials if it caused more bad than good.

    Re: Interesting

    Hair follicles are getting exposed to plenty of DHT, regardless of the blood supply. DHT in the blood is a small part of the equation. It's the locally produced DHT within the hair follicle which is responsible for balding.

    Definately crap. That is why it is the lead part for most regimes on the success story forum. With pics to prove it, not crap evidence of "Oh, i used minox for 3 days and i lost 70% of my hair density"

    Here are only some examples of what this crap did:

    Funny enough i havent seen a single post with these dreadfull pictures of a guy going bald because of minox.

    Wow those are some amazing results. I must admit the study published did/does give me a little pause - noone wants to read about how something they are chucking on their scalp upregulates 5ar activity. But I guess for most at least the growth prooting effects outweigh any growth inhibition.
