I'm 32, been diffusing and receding slowly for a long time, at least since age 23. I'm NW2 or NW2.5. I cannot take finasteride due to the risk of ED side effects, as this would exacerbate the ED I already have. I don't have all my ingrediants yet, some of them are in the mail, but I'm posting the thread here and the starter photos to get it done. I'll update the details as the ingredients come in. Components: 1) Minoxidil from MonixidlMax. It's 15% Minoxidil with 5% azelic acid, some tretinoin and caffeine, dissolved in propylene glycol. I think 15% minoxidil is too much, I've ordered some propylene glycol in the mail to dilute it by 50%. I'll thus be taking ~7.5% minoxidil once a day. 2) RU58851, currently being shipped, from the kane shop. I plan to take it in a small dose, 10 mg a day, to start off. I will dissolve it in the minoxidil in the necessary quantity to achieve that dose. 3) Garnier Fructis 5% Stemoxydine, been taking ~3ml/day for a few weeks, applied evenly over the scalp, will start using measuring devices to be more consistent; 4) Oral castor oil ~1 ml/day, taken at night with my other supplements taken for reasons other than hair -- currently: vitamin D, fish oil, glucosamine-chondritin, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, organic mixed maca, powdered greens, apple-cider vinegar, l-aginine, pine bark extract, also dopa mucuna in the morning. 5) Shampoos as can be seen in my signature. Right now it's Nizoral 1% followed by Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil conditioner on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays. I take 1% keto with 14 DHT blockers from Pura D'or on the other days. This is overly complicated and clogs up my bathroom, I'll simplify things when they run out. 6) Separately, I'm doing nofap (2 M+O without P since starting, see my sig) and intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting means no food prior to 12 at least five days a week, and one ~36-hour fast per week, though the exact protocol might vary from week to week. 7) I'm considering buying tea tree oil and lavender to dissolve in the minoxidil. We'll see. Here are some pictures from March (~2 months ago), that I took just after a buzz cut, 2 on top 1 on the sides, just before starting fnasteride 1.25 mg/day which I took for 30 days so presumably it had no noticeable effect. I will post the final numerical combination and dose of my topical once all the ingredients are in.
