    I hope so man! Yeah, I use it at night, let it dry on my sclap, then generally sleep in a beanie or something to keep it off my pillows. I'm going to start wounding next Tuesday, so hopefully that adds to the gains.

    Is it safe to say dutasteride did nothing extra for u compared to finasteride?

    I honestly have no idea man. I did really well on both of them. My gains on finasteride were good enough to warrant dropping dutasteride.

    impressive bro !
    you didn't shed while switching from duta to fina ?
    how much minoxidil do you apply ? you apply it on whole scalp ?
    And reallly you don't flakes with such an amount of minoxidil ?

    I've been using your method for 2 days

    Very exciting if this restores your native hairline

    I've been shedding profusely for the last six months (while on dutasteride), and it has slowed dramatically since the switch. Like, from 100 in the shower to around 30. I attribute that to how I'm applying minoxidil and not the switch to finasteride.

    2ml.. Ish at night. Sometimes more if I go apeshit. No white flakes. I do get a bit of white powdery residue from it drying it my hair, but it briuahes right out. There's literally no irritation from the minoxidil at all.

    Godspeed bro. I'll fuckin shit myself if it brings me close to nw2, let alone NW1.

    you part your hair to apply the minoxidil ?
    2 ml seems a small amount for whole head

    2 ml is enough to completely saturate the frontal third and get decent saturation towards the crown. I don't have any perceivable loss behind the frontal third, so I focus my efforts elsewhere.

    I'm currently NW2, trying to get back to NW1. I haven't been a solid NW1 for at least close to a decade though (hard to tell exactly when due to lack of pics of me with short hair). First world problems at this point, but I really want to try something that shows potential to bring me back that far. Hoping this might be it, we'll see how this goes

    How do you clean the site? Also you said you don't apply minoxidil right after wounding, but you do after rolling what is the difference between wounding and rolling?

    With soap.

    Wounding is exactly what it sounds like. You're wounding your skin to benefit from the healing process. If done correctly, you'll be bleeding.

    When I roll, it's very lightly. Instead of bleeding, it just reddens the skin and increase minoxidil absorption through tiny abrasions.

    When you say bleeding do you mean tiny little dots of blood or like enough were blood is actually dripping? because i used the 1.5 once a week and I push pretty hard, hurts quite a bit and I just get little dots of blood all over

    Just the dots. You shouldn't be penetrating deeper than 1.5mm when wounding your scalp.

    Wow this is impressive regrowth.... I had to drop Dutas and go back to finasteride because of some nasty sides. I bought a Derma Roller a while back but I have yet to use it as to be honest, I have no idea what I am doing and how to disinfect it or what I should actually be doing to prevent infection or should I be aiming to wound or just roll once a week for increased minoxidil absorption. It's all very confusing to me.... but I really do need to get on this, it's my last hope! Is there a dumbass guide to these methods??

    Man I am getting little to no redness most nights....I hope I am getting all the benefits. I cannot imagine I'm supposed to be pushing much harder than I am for sub-wounding level purposes. This seems strange especially since I have very fair skin

    Is there any reason not to use minoxidil 2x a day with this method other than purpose of convenience?

    I'll be happy to help ya. What questions do you have?

    It's just a pain in the ass. I'd much rather use 2ml once a day than 1 ml twice a day. The half-life is roughly 24 hours, so I assume the dosage is the same between the two methods.

    My redness doesn't stick around long; maybe a minute or two. One thing I've noticed is that sweat will burn if it accumulates on my temples the day after I roll. This leads me to believe the wounds may be a bit less superficial than I previously thought.

    Unfortunately, there's no way for me to tell you how much force to apply. Just fuck with it. Designate a section of skin and see how hard you have to roll before it starts spotting with blood, then tone it down from there.

    Great results, Blue, really really great! :)

    I'm curious if you've had systemic absorption of the minoxidil. Have you measured your blood pressure and heartrate during your treatment period?

    I've tried minoxidil topically, topically with wounding, orally at different doses, and topically+orally. Measured my blood pressure and heartrate many times before and during the treatments. On me, topically no wounding had a small effect on my measurements, while topically with wounding had the same effect as oral dosing (bp down, heartrate up).

    It's not really precise measurements since blood pressure and resting heartrate vary so much during the day, but it confirmed - in my case, at least - the research I've found that topical minoxidil definitely goes systemic depending on vehicle, amount, etc, and that it goes much more systemic when it's accompanied with wounding.

    I'm fine with systemic absorption, and I used my measurements to create a bro-scientific dosing plan of oral and topical (with wounding) that gives me changes in blood and heartrate which I can accept. But I know a lot of guys here get sides from any systemic absorption of minoxidil, and/or don't want to take any risk of changes in blood pressure and heartrate. It definitely depends on the person, so I'd be interested how it's been for you.

    I have been noticing some slight irritation from sweat myself, even with my lack of redness

    Well I rolled harder tonight, and ended up drawing blood in one little spot. Now I will probably take tomorrow off from rolling to be safe. I think I have a bit of a better idea though how much I can tolerate without drawing blood. Still don't seem to be getting much redness though....this is weird.

    As I'm sitting here after applying the minoxidil my scalp is feeling slightly off. I think I will just stick to the lighter rolling I was doing before and just not worry so much about making it red

    Wait 5 years until finasteride stops working and your hair transplant that your mom paid for looks like a head band and you're that creepy dude that got a hair transplant. Calling it, by 30 everyone you encounter will know "there's something up with his hair" "is he wearing a wig". Lol your a clown. Been digging hairloss for how long? 2 years? You know nothint you Golum looking ass mf

    Less than a year, but you're right I really wish I'd been cruising hairloss forums for half a decade like yourself. Quite an impressive achievement.

    More impressive than that is passing the cpa exam without basic understanding of the English language or knowing the difference between "your" and "you're".

    At least you'll be dead soon from your steroid abuse and smoking habit.
