I will update here about derrma+minoxi
Man @Somebody I have been doing your daily rolling for absorption method for about 3 months now and my hair basically looks no different than before I started. Maybe a few extra wispy looking hairs but nothing that seems to be cosmetically relevant. Results with this method are supposed to happen pretty quickly, no?
I may have just already maxed out my regrowth potential on the big 3 prior to starting. I'm trying to decide if it's worth me continuing on with this for another few months and see if anything worthwhile comes of it. I don't really want to continue exposing my scalp to needles every day if I'm getting no benefit from it
What about vitaminis?
Yes it should.
Difficult to say, for sure. I was on Propecia for 5 years and Nizarol for 3 years (and off and on minoxidil without results), before I started with dermaroller and minoxidil.It was combination that gave great results. As of now there hasn't been any change for some time, I may have reached maximum results that I can get from treatment.
Yes. That's understandable.
Vitamin can help to boost treatment that works. If there are no results I wouldn't expect much.
Alex,tnx for all,you are good man!
hey somebody! nice thread and progress your hair is perfect congrats
couple of questions.
How long do you wait before applying minoxidil after you dermaroll everynight?
this might be strange but do you have any tips for finding Perilla leaves in Australia? lol. I can only find Perilla oil supps online.
thanks man, keep up the fight. You're an inspiration
I think I'm just going to cut back on the rolling some as I do think it has made some new hairs appear (albeit not cosmetically helping hairs at this point)
I think I'll take 2-3 days off from rolling to let my scalp kind of "reset", then go to doing it somewhere between 3-5 days a week
I do it right away. Since I dermaroll only to increse absobation it dosn't make my skin any discomfort.
You can try asian markets. For ex vietnamise shop, they should have it for sale. Other possibility is to buy from aliexpress (dry leaves).
Yes, rest period is allways a good idea. In past I was taking them more spontaneously at times when I began to feel discomfort of to much rolling. Now day's I do it planed. For ex; every secound week 2 days off. From my experince with liquid minoxidil it's best to take more days off, compare to foam version (avoiding scalp drynes).
Just found two pictures in old usb drive. Both are from 2004. I was 19 half at that time. As I look back to hair loss timeline, I think I had really agresseive hair loss between 2003-2005 and that it stabilazed between 2006-2007 and afterwords it accelated again, to finaly I did take action in end of 2008 and got propecia.
If you can respond to your opinion I would be very happy
Hey somebody thanks for answering my minoxidil question, I have 2 more questions do you drink perilla leaf tea as well? and does the egg mask really reduce oily scalp? thanks again brother.
Yes, from time to time I do drink perilla as tea. But I prefer coffee. The way I take perilla powder is as folllowing: in morning on empty stomach and I drink it down with water. About egg white mask, yes it should work. I have got postive feedback from others who have tried it. From my experice it's good for reducing light inflammation. Also you can google up benifits of applying egg white mask.
Ok, so it's a year and a half now since the first post, how many people have a new head of hair? Anyone had great results at all besides Somebody using this method? Anybody? I'm 14 months in with zero new hair, and I'm a fanatic, never missed a single day. I would love it if maybe a few more guys had some great results, but I see the same questions being answered today as they were a year ago. Maybe the guys who grew hair left when they got results??? Or it just doesn't work. Fire away
What defines Somebody's method? Only thing I've added since I started to follow this thread (unregistered hehe) is perilla which may or may not help out. derma + minoxidil I did before.
I am getting zero gains since I started the hair treatment journey in July last year so there isn't really any bulletproof method.
Granted, Somebody's story is phenomenal and a great follow.
I'm going away from the every day plan back to the once or twice a week plan of doing it less but harder. Also I'm not going to apply it straight after, going to wait half a day at least. Heard that applying directly afterwards actually cancels out all the effects of dermarolling, but again it's a theory. Like you say, there's no bulletproof method. I just know that my hair is terrible, it's actually worse now than when I started, so I have to try something different. I wish it worked like Somebody, but he just got lucky I suppose. Will keep you updated on the new programme, this is week 2 now
Dermaroller and minoxidil results should come quickly. If there are no results after 6 months it's obviously not working.
Update on applying liquid minoxidil and white flakes (+dandruff). I have been applying liquid minoxidil for more then one month. Basically because the mail lost my package, have ordered again and will get foam next week.
So about my experience so far. Still insignificant amount of white flakes and dandruff. In past it would have been big issue for my scalp. I talked about it in my last youtube video. Here are summery on what has been working for me:
- Use hat when it's cold outside
- Use caps when it's hot and there is sunlight
- Massage minoxidil well into scalp
- Use shampoo with salic acid (2%) 3 times a week
- Use cold air when drying hair
I attach two pictures of my hair. One from 2015 when I had used liquid minoxidil for 2 years and another image from 2017 of foam minoxidil. My hair was much darker when I used liquid. Since I have applyd foam, I have got my natural hair color. Conclusion liquid minoxidil seems to be more effective. What experience do you have?
Damn your hairline is gorgeous dude. No homo. I'm super jelly
What do you think is a substitute for Propecia?
