    I take 7 g fine perilla powder daily. I make perilla powder at home. Check pictures I added below this post.

    I buy it online. Here is scandinavia its easy to buy. Other options you have is to buy perilla leaves and then dry them. Or you can buy perilla powder at aliexpress, there are follow members that have done it. Just remember that you need to get perilla leaves not root.

    Yes. I'm familar with that. I was consern about it myself when I first started to take borage oil. I have been taking it since 2011 and havent got any incresed estrogen symtoms. Maybe it is helping that I also have good diet, excessise a lot and take supplements

    I just saw this post and I am shocked, congrats!!!

    You must feel really happy after those painfull NW4 years!

    I am 27 years old and my hair loss started at 21 but only on my temples. I must be NW2. It is driving me crazy! So I decided to start finasteride 3 months ago, I have used minoxidil but I have stopped like 3 times because I kept losing hair on my temples and I don’t know why... But I am ont my first month of minoxidil foam.

    I bought regenepure DR and NT shampoos but I don’t know if they are better than Revita.

    I am taking ON Opti Men multivitamin and Omega 3, added today Vitamin C 1000mg and Biotin 10000mcg. Dymatize ISOLATE Protein and MT VaporX5 shred preworkout.

    Questions. How do you exactly apply Minoxidil Foam, I only apply it on my temples where there is no hair and massage it, I don’t apply it on my front scalp where I have hair NW2. Am I doing it wrong? I think I am shedding a little because I am on my first month, did you shed with minoxidil and Finasteride? For how long? Should I relax a bit and wait at least 6 months?

    What Shampoo do you recommend? And how to use it?

    I tried Dermarolling but I was not constant, do you experienced regrowth on temples by using dermaroll? Do you use it every day and after or before Minoxidil? I only apply minoxidil once a day, in the morning, only on my temples.

    Please, I need help! I am considering FUE on my temples, I think that is the only fast solution for now.

    Hello,

    I am 20 years old and suffer from male pattern baldness. It has not gotten too far, but I have been "knowing" it is coming for 5 years now, very slowly at start. Since 6 months back I have been losing hair diffusely, mainly on the right side by the parting and by the temples. I have also suffered from hypersensitivity the last months and it's almost as if I "feel" the hair loss, maybe a delusion, but haven't felt that way before.

    I will probably accept my destiny =), but might as well try some natural methods first.

    What is your best suggestions for someone like me who don't want to use finasteride?

    I live in Scandinavia as well.
    Thank you,

    Sorry but natural methods do not work. They're just a waste of time. The Big Three is the only thing (along with other dht suppressors) that work.

    Thanks, it feels very liberating of not worry about my hair.

    You can check my youtubechanel www.youtube.com/somebodyalex on how to apply things. Shedding is normal, an you also should be able to spot mini hair. If that's the case then everything is good.

    I have used Revita becouse it was only high end shampoo that I could import. Nowdays I'm ussing Foligain D1. I like that it also contain salic acid.

    Yes, dermaroller was toll that gave me regrow. Minoxidil as stand alone was not enough for me. Dermaroller is easy to use, use it just to increse absorbation of minoxidil. Maximum time I roll is 1-3 min. Again I suggest to check my youtubechannel.

    I was able to get almost complete regrow from minoxidil+dermaroller in 7 months. Things can improve fast with right treatment.

    Have you looked into topical finasteride?

    I'm not a doctor so I can't recommend
    Finansteride is just one of many possible solutions

    Thanks man! You are an inspiration!

    Revita or D1? I think Regenepure is good but not seeing any progress like I have seen with Nizoral (too invasive and I feel my heart pounding when using it)

    I will start my dermaroll journey, once a day, 1 min and to increase minoxidil absorption.

    I will watch all your videos and have a happy new year!

    No, never heard of it. I care about my hair, but I care more about my health... So a moderate risk of depression or less libido for instance, is off-limits. I have read A LOT of threads about people and their results with propecia and I have never stumbled upon someone with results as yours. You are clearly doing something different, it probably has to do with propecia, but surely not entirely.

    What is your point then? Topical Finasteride has showcased less to none side-effects. If you are worried about those, then that is the only way for you to get hold of your hair loss.

    First time I took Finasteride I had bouts of extreme anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. I stopped taking it and in the second time, I had none of those side effects as now I was aware of how the drug works on your mental health. You need to be prepared to take this drug.

    Somebody, have you ever searched for Minoxidil alternatives? Like pumpkin seed oil or saw palmetto?

    In my option they should learn about preventive measures in late teens. I was 24 when I first started with Propecia.

    Unfortunatly, I have never tried Regenepure. In my country it's expensive to import it. About Revita and Foilgain, both brands have given value for investment. Which one to chosse depends on scalp conditions. Revita are fat shampoo, and Foligain is light. For me both have definetly helped with scalp inflammation. I can add that Foligan is quit good to reduce dandruff (not the same as minoxidil flakes).

    Happy new year and best wishes.

    No, I haven't. After I started with minoxidil and dermaroller combination it gave results and I didn't serch for other options.

    I wonder how this dermarolling method can be used if someone is on topical finasteride and concerned about the topical finasteride going systemic.

    One possibility could be to do it separate times a day. For ex I apply minoxidil once a day at evening. So it should be possible to do topical finasteride application in morning. Other suggestions?

    Hi Somebody! Your YT videos are great!
    Where do you buy Propecia? It seems that there is no way I can order it from my country, I live in Serbia in Europe...
    Also, did you had any significant loss on the crown before starting treatments ?

    Yes, once a day since 2013. (I apply about 1.5 ml each time). I apply few hours before sleep.

    Thanks for video feedback. I buy Propecia in my country. It is a prescription drug. Basically it's the same as Finasteride.
    I have a diffuse thinning. It means that I loss hair all over my scalp without any treatment.

    Thank yoi for answering me. Do you think there is any website where I can order Propecia online from Europe?
    Also, as I can't find perilla leaves I think I am going to try nettle leaves and borage oils plis biotin and lysine.

    I think it's risky to order Propecia online. Better to find Finasterid, if only alternativ getting it is online. The initiative to sell fake Propecia is much greater then finasteride.

    Nettle leaves won't give same effect. Still okay to take them but don't expect inflammatory benefits.

    I dermaroll daily.
