    If you knew what it was like to be naturally very skinny maybe you would understand. I worked out for nearly 3 years naturally and gained 3 kg, then I tried a mild test/deca cycle and gained 10kg in 8 weeks, go figure.

    I've just finished a npp cycle of 400mg a week with 200mg test and it didnt affect my hair, I'm using 5mg oral minoxidil and no finasteride.
    I've tried tren and dbol in the past and they shed my hair, especially dbol.Dbol was great though I wish I could tolerate it, you can literally feel it surging through you 20 mins after taking it and you gain alot of size quickly.
    I'm only going to take test with anavar or tbol from now on, the extra bit of size you get with tren or dbol isnt worth it when it destroys your hair.

    So you are pronte to male pattern baldness, take no finasteride nor dutasteride and you did not have any hair loss while on 200mg test a week?

    Oral minoxidil will not prevent hair loss from androgens.

    I use topical dutasteride with great sucess and no sides. However, I am starting TRT next week and it might not be enough

    hair loss doesnt appear immediately after steroids. You will notice the thinning after 3-4 months.
    However that man seems not prone to baldness at all, if he was, after tren and dbol there should be nothing left

    I was norwood 3 with massive diffuse thinning. When I took tren and dbol it shed my hair but it came back 2 months after, I was on finasteride at that time though.

    finasteride doesnt have any effect because they dont need to be converted to dht unlike test.
    They are very harsh , literally eat in little time the hairs of someone prone to baldness

    I mean when I came off, my hair went back to normal.I know finasteride will do nothing while on. I'm extremely prone to baldness I started losing in my teens and am a big diffuse thinner.Ive had 2 transplants.

    @Moosey ; I think you have a good knowledge about anabolic steroids. Can I ask you which one of these is most harmful for hair? Testosterone , Anavar, and DHT ?

    Are you using topical Finasteride and Dutasteride? Thinning fast in 1% topical Finasteride daily. Was thinking of adding 1% Topical Dutasteride 1-2 times a week with the Finasteride

    Pretty obvious. DHT, then Testosterone, then Anavar. Anavar is very mild to hair. Its much more anabolic than it is androgenic, which is why women can take it too.
    DHT is almost purely androgenic

    Thnx. I was on oral spironolactone for more than a year. It worked for my hair but it caused some fat redistribution on my face which I don't like. In order to get back to the normal, I thought about starting TRT. However, I am scared of putting more testosterone into my system. So, my question is if I add Anavar instead of TRT, can I get back my previous masculine face?

    I dont know. I dont know how spironolacton works and if TRT would help with it. For example, if it works like bicalutamide, then TRT is useless.
    If these changes in your face happened because of lowered androgenicity, then anavar isnt the answer for you. As i said, women use anavar because it has almost none of the masculinazation properties.
    spironolocaton seems to be a duaretic too, so it seems likely its going to cause some changes in your face if it interferes with water in your skin.
    But again, i dont know enough about it to give you an answer.

    both trt and anavar will hurt your hairs. You know spironolactone cause feminization. I would drop spironolactone, stick with duta and save money for a hair transplant.

    Will TRT hurt your hair on dutasteride and RU?
    It should not in theory.
    You would be blocking both DHT and receptors

    I have read (can't remember where) that androgel is much worse for hairloss than injectable test. Some pathway crap I can't remember, look it up

    I'm not him but he's probably taking RU or Finasteride for hair loss. RU is really popular among steroid users because it essentially blocks all testosterone and almost all DHT on the scalp given its binding affinity to the AR

    -50mg topical RU58841
    -60mg topical ketoconazole creme
    -ZIX solution
    -stemoxydine
    -topical estradiol creme, 1mg per day
    -50mg azelaic acid
    -needling
    - oral castor oil, 6ml

    I'd like to think otherwise, but im certain the growth im getting is just from the castor oil. Meaning its just temporary and is not a reversal of the hairloss. Either way, its protecting my hair and im happy with it.

    Since you are maintaining on such a weak regimen, add oral finasteride 1 my, it will solve your hair loss problem.
