Because that difference was on my right temple, my massage experiments these past few months have been on my left temple and I never saw much regrowth at all on the left but it was my less receded temple. Now after doing the massages I'm seeing vellus hairs sprouting up and going longer and I'm beginning to see terminal hairs starting to sprout out.If those photos are 1.5 years apart and you've been on finasteride for 1.5 years why do you attribute the regrowth to massaging?

Basing off of one study I'm fairly convinced that the stretching forces in the scalp via the massage quite literally change the gene expression in the scalp/skin into ones that favour hair growth. So with a combination of treatments it could be a very beneficial part to the regrowth process.
People also need to remember I had regrowth before finasteride and I've been slowly coming back from a NW4.5
Pretty much the same lately, I have tried to occasionally eat healthier foods but nothing set in stone. I also periodically intermittent fast but that's not directed towards hariloss.What has your diet been like through all of us?
As of late around 10-30 minutes but I mainly focus on the left temple at the moment to test the massages, I just do it slowly while watching Youtube etc.Congratulations man! How many minutes on average do you massage a day?
Here's some extra photos from the past couple of weeks, the first picture is probably confusing to look at but it's taken from above, harder to tell on the closeups.
I was going to do some before and afters but it's too much of a headache trying to get the same angle and lighting without blurring the picture, my whole orientation gets thrown off too since my hairline has changed, I did get some semi-close ones though that I might upload in the future.
What is your regimen bro? How did u regrow your hair? Thanks!Nice. Your hair is growing back in a similar fashion to mine, but you have much more dramatic stippling. How did you achieve it? Is there some sort of technique youve been using when microneedling? I just stab the hell out of myself over and over in a quasi--chaotic fashion until its saturated in blood. Curious how you got such tight and pronounced temple stubble.
Since this thread is so long is your regimen basically *just* finasteride + nizoral + pyrithione zinc + microneedling + scalp massage? Am I missing anything?
Can you elaborate on your mechanical approach to microneedling. I know thats hard to type, but Im curious how come you got such tight stippling and mines just here and there.
Whats the point of 40% glycolic acid and salicylic acid?
How long did it take your crown to grow back to full thickness? Mine is kind of stuck, but looks to be slowly thickening but its like fine baby hair right now and its blonde like I was when I was a kid lol...
How often do you use the zinc shampoo? Im gonna buy a 2% one to add to my regimen, and alternate it with nizoral.
What derminator do you use?
What is your regimen bro? How did u regrow your hair? Thanks!
Once a month topical dutasteride? How is it possible to apply it so rarely?Go topical dutasteride
I have been on it for 3 months now. Completely stopped my hair loss and zero side effects as compared with oral finasteride which was not as effective.
Best part is I only apply 2ml once a month. Half life of the drug is so long that you don't need daily usage.
