    Do you have pics of your experience?

    What was your regimen? What changed to make you lose your regrowth?

    Unbelievable results OP. I'll say that I also had good results on the big 3, but after 2 years I have recently dipped a bit. I added derma rolling and have been doing it for like 4-ish months now so its too early to tell what I'll gain from that.

    The problem is the big 3 isn't a cure, eventually it may lose some effectiveness. I'm hoping breezula comes through as it appears brotzu has been a fail.

    Thank you.
    Have you maintained enough that if you had a hair transplant do you think you'd be in good shape?

    I always have had hair transplant on the table and am just riding out the Big 3 as far as I can. I may still get a hair transplant if I need one. I know some people have maintained for decades on finasteride alone and I am hoping to maintain as well especially if I get a hair transplant.

    I have maintained enough, hopefully this stuff continues to slow down my hairloss at the rate it is now. I'm 27 so my loss is aggressive for my age, but with these drugs you just never know how people are going to respond, it's a case by case basis much of the time. Most of my loss is at my crown area, which is a black hole for grafts. I'd much rather have a stronger hairline than a thin crown, I think most posters here would agree with that sentiment.

    I don't mind being on minoxidil forever, but I'd prefer to eventually move on from finasteride. The problem is this stuff is like the mafia, once you're in, you're in for life. I'm a diffuse loser as well so shock loss is a problem with getting a transplant.

    Amazing results dude. I saw your post on r/tressless as well. Congrats.

    Meanwhile I'm going the opposite direction. From NW1 to a NW5 diffuse... **** my life. I'm gonna try to replicate this regimen soon.

    I get it from Hims.

    It's kinda tricky to find on their site but you can order the shampoo+ directly it looks like. It's cheaper if you pay monthly subscription but only by about $5 or so.

    Thank you.

    That sucks. I feel like each person is a puzzle, and there is at least one thing that is causing the hair loss. Throw everything at it and hope something sticks!
    Good luck brother

    Chen was one who motivated me as well :)

    Yes I was bald from 23 -> 32

    I had some soft invisible vellus hairs on the top but not the crown. And there weren't many of them, could not see them but could feel them if I gently brushed hand over scalp. So while those ones recovered, those guys alone would not have given me the coverage I have today. I definitely woke up some completely retarded follicles.

    The collagen peptides I drink in a milk mixture. I believe I linked the Amazon product link in a post in this thread. I use the same stuff someone else linked from the Dermaneedling megathread. I am running to a meeting now but if I remember I will come back and re-post the link to it. Its a Matcha Green Tea Collagen peptide mix from Amazon. I just do two spoonfuls of that plus a spoonful of sugar into like 10-12 oz of milk. Pretty good taste actually but the powder stays kinda clumpy.

    Thank you, good luck to you.

    Wow...great achievement and thanks a lot for giving lot of hope.
    Have you noticed huge change after switching to dermapen from derma roller and also you had faster regrowth after switching to daily micro needling session.

    I am using derma pen for last six months once in 10 days.
    I am seeing regrowth especially on side temples but not significant.

    Please share which frequency and depth of derma pen works well.

    Thanks a lot again.

    So what actually helped the most was the daily 1mm needling? If I use this and minoxidil everyday will it be the most effective?

    I cant speak to derma rolling, but yes, minoxidil everyday will certainly help (unless you're body is a non-responder)

    Have you changed your regimen to 2mm weekly on the needling front or is your profile regimen just not up to date?

    Thanks for advising, you sexy champion of non-baldness.

    It's hard to believe anyone could get these results without estradiol and spironolactone. I've seen some impressive regrowth from up to a NW5, but never from a NW7. You are giving a lot of people hope.

    Even 2.5 mg of dutasteride didn’t work me for more than a year.
