    My maternal father is NW1 at 84 I am NW3 in early 20tues and my dad was NW6 at 17-that should settle this debate about maternal father. I got it from my grandmother on fatger side quite obviously

    You need to be sure to let all the researchers know that they are wasting their time and money with large sample sizes when all they have to do is look at petersonkj to draw their conclusions.

    I think whichever one is the stronger will come through.

    Virtually every guy I know from my school who went bald in their late 20s/early 30s had very bald fathers. There is definitely some correlation.

    Regardless this microneedling sh*t isn't working for me, and now my scalp is flaking really badly too to add to the shedding and general itchiness. 3 months in to the follica protocol

    Using minoxidil? Maybe you are going to hard on the needling? I think you are supposed to apply mild pressure.

    Peppermint oil can help with itchiness.

    Id like to add my success story after almost 2years of needling.

    I have a thread here if you look after about 6 months after a hair transplant at asmed and needling + minoxidil. IT really works. There is some photos there.

    I have been needling with a derma stamp 1-7 times a week. Applying 2ml of minoxidil in the evening only. I started at 1.5mm but after a while I noticed the satisfying pulsing that you get instantly in the scalp had stopped. I guess either my nervous system was getting used to the damage and not responding as strong OR that the blood flow to the scalp had improved so that the extra blood flow caused less pulsing. Ive slowly stepped up to 3mm which is the maximum that my stamp allows. The pulsing returns strongly when you increase the depth, indicating to me greater blood flow and hopefully over time improved blood vessels/delivery to the scalp.

    My hair has got notably darker. Everyone comments on it. It has completely elimnated miniturization. Each hair is MUCH thicker. Id guess that my hair count it higher but hard to say. Id guess that the increased blood flow slowly makes the follicules bigger and bigger so the hairs get thicker.

    Ive regrown more hair on one side of my head than the other but it isnt noticeable. I try to needle the weaker points more than the rest but it does not seem to be even it out. My hair looks awesome, better than it did in my twenties (im 38). Im considering another hair transplant at some point just because im geting a bit vein and a bit of a perfectionist about it!

    To other needlers I would say dont be afraid to needle every day, and dont be afraid to increase the depth. Im needling at 3mm most days atm with no issues.

    I swear when I needle daily I can feel my hair being thicker almost instantly. Its like the extra blood flow energises the hair somehow.

    IVe had miniture fine hairs grow infront of the hair transplant on my temples, which helps to soften the hard line of the hair transplant.

    Considering alternating a 1.5mm roller and a 3mm stamp daily to vary the damage!

    Microneedling WORKS and its cheap and accessible. Im not sure if its the minoxidil or needling or both that is giving me great results but both are reasonably cheap. GET STARTED NOW if you havent already.

    Ive added some pictures, two before and two after. Not great sorry.

    Remember I have had a hair transplant. I had 3k grafts to front and temples at asmed. I have a massive head though so the grafts didnt go far. And moved my hairline forward up to 3cm forward.

    @DigbyDog great results, keep it up! A few questions if you don’t mind.
    Did you avoid going out or wear a hat after doing dermarolling?
    Do you take any other medication besides minoxidil?

    Were you on minoxidil before you had the transplant? Because for the most part you're really just describing a good minoxidil response...

    Looks awesome. How awesome it must be for those that dont get sides on minoxidil. Too bad microneedling on it's own does nothing but make it worse.

    thanks. No other medication. No I’ve never felt the need to wear a hat. I always needle in the evening.

    No, I did nothing to my hair before hair transplant.

    you are correct I cannot say if needling or minoxidil is responsible for my gains. I’ve only got my gut feel to go by.

    There are examples on this thread that show impressive results just with needling.

    Unrelated but I never had any shedding with the regime. I know some suggest an initial shed with minoxidil.

    no itching or scalp irritation despite heavy sometimes daily wounding.

    When you say stamp do you mean one of these or similar? Because that's a pain to get decent wound density with stamping manually.

    Yes that is what im using, mine is adjustable depth. But same thing. Yeah I understand wounding might be easier with a roller. However I have using a roller my hair gets caught in the wheel and the odd one gets pulled out which I dont like.

    I guess I stamp quite often to make up for it. But I am getting results.

    I do plan to experiment with a roller again. I have my hair shaved quite high now so I guess I can use a roller on the shorter areas at least.

    I’ve just added dermarolling into my regime tonight, 1.5 with Derma pen. There was some blood, head is feeling on fire right now, kinda pulsing. I only done hairline and temples

    Is it possible this can harm my current hair? I don’t wanna loose anything from my hairline man


    Current regime.
    Avodart .5 daily
    Loniten 15mg daily

    I currently use roller, 1.5mm , I wet my hair before so it doesn't get pulled when rolling. I draw small amounts of blood

    Do you draw blood with the stamp? I imagine if would be hard unless you are stabbing your head quite hard with it

    @DigbyDog wow that’s awesome, happy for you man. Do you avoid the sunlight after needling? And do you apply the minoxidil immediately after needling? Thank you.
