Never heard of such a thing. Estrogen = Good hair and Testosterone/DHT =, Bad hair. A basic science.
I already have lol. I'm still right in saying Estrogen = good for hair.. Not ALL estrogens, but most.
This warms my heart. I’m sorry that you felt you couldn’t truly be yourself for so long, but I’m happy that you finally found you could. You are beautiful <3HRT doesn't work for everyone. It failed to save my hair. I have to wear wigs now, forever. But I am glad I started HRT and transitioned. So far it has been the greatest adventure of my life, not all good, not all bad, but *intense*. It made me feel alive again. Looking back, I've had gender identity issues since at least 8 years old, and wanted to transition when I was 18 yrs old in 1980. Would've saved my hair for sure, but I'd probably be dead by now from any of 100 different reasons. Instead, I denied and overcompensated for the next 3.5 decades before caving in and saying f this s, I'm gonna transition now or die trying. I wasn't living anyway. Along the journey, I learned a lot of mind blowing things, most notably that I'm a chimera. Go google 46xx/xy chimera and have a read. Fascinating as hell, and explains a lot why I am like I am. Anyway, HRT didn't save my hair, but did grow me some nice titties and feminized the heck out of my face, erasing probably 15 years of age.
With a wig and half-*** makeup job, I actually look halfway pretty.... I think.
I just know I feel great about myself now.
These pics will probably blow your mind.
That's me before, and current. Not too shabby for 56 yrs old, eh?

So far HRT isn't working for me and I'm almost 2 months in. Hair is still getting thinner and receding. Crown is starting to go now tooHRT does works for those who haven't been balding for decades, you probably got to a point where your follicles were completely dead, thats why you did not respond. Yeah some need higher doses than other but it does stop hairloss and reverse it if its not too far gone (unless you have a different type of alopecia to androgenic alopecia ofc). I think saying "HRT doesn't work for everyone" is a gross oversimplification, I think in your case it wasn't that HRT didn't work or wasn't responsive its just that the follicles were dead.
There aren't much risks with Oestrogel without using an anti androgen. I was using it for months before I got on Cyproterone and never had any side effects, not even gyno.What are the risks? i was thinking of ordering oestrogel. Im only 4 months in to my finasteride but im thinking of adding it...damn this forum lol
I dont understand. If he took high doses of estrogen to get his hair back, why cant he disocntinue estrogen and maintain with finasteride?
