    I don't have many from when I was really receding, but I do have a few. I only made an account to reply to this thread and let others know that it HAS worked incredibly for me. However, if there is interest I will start a thread and detail everything I do, along with some before and current pictures. I believe the earlier you catch your balding/receding, the better chance you have of saving it. I am only 23 years old and went through some crazy amounts of stress the past couple years. Could have been why I was losing it so rapidly. Good luck guys.

    Hi,
    i've also started using dermaroller 1.5mm on the 10th of january since it doesnt cost anything to try( compared to finasteride and minoxidil i say). i was already on the big 3 for more than a year.
    My daily routine is now, 1mg finasteride, liquid minoxidil twice a day, nizoral once or twice a week + dermaroller on my scalp every day.
    after 47 days i'm already seeing positive results. i'm seeing more and more baby hair becoming biger every week on my hairline, if everything goes well, i hope it will become visible in 2-3 month.
    If i have good results i'll do an update with some pics.

    Alex thanks for this thread/blog. And congratulations on your results.

    Just a question about keeping the derma roller clean...what do you use for this?

    Thanks

    Hi Alex,

    Great idea! Btw I think you mean no PG, not no alcohol. Most minoxidil foams I know still have alcohol, just no longer the PG. Am I right?

    Ops... My mistake, I have corrected it. Foligain foam does contain propylene glycol I checked ingredient list. I was not aware of it. Interestingly I still don't have dry, flaky or itchy scalp. I think it have something to do with how quickly it dries. Liquid stays on scalp for hours, foam dries in less than a minute.

    By sprying 40% alcohol on it after use. I have a video about it on youtube.

    Do you want make foam to liquid? If that is the case you can fill 1 ml of foam into a plastic top that comes with the rogaine bottle and let it melt. And then apply with a dropper.

    @Somebody : What about the perilla leaves cream from Allermin ? It could work or it's better to use oral ?

    I haven't tried topical cream, etc. In Japan they take perilla bath, as anti aging treatment. Anyway I have just taken it by mouth.

    Hi Alex, yesterday i used your dermaroller 1.5mm for the first time.

    1) I applied minoxidil right after rolling and it stung.
    2) 24h later, my skin is still little red.
    3) 15m after application, i could feel my heart rate was accelerated.

    Do you think I pressed too much? I clearly got high absorption, maybe I am not the right person for this. I am also scared about some sides like growing hair in other parts of my body.

    I bought the perilla capsules from verkkoaptekki, can't post link, what do you think about them?

    Thanks a lot!

    Yep. Check www.youtube.com/somebodyalex
    Only if you apply there.
    Perilla is for inflammation, not growth stimulator.

    Are you Aware that a Dermapen (cheaper Version:dermastamp) is much more effective than a roller?

    If you looked into them can you share with me the reasons ur not Using them?

    I got my regrowth from dermaroller, and they are super cheap. Why change something that obviously gives results?

    How about pressure? With dermaroller I can easily find right pressure to use on my scalp.

    It's never good to be too greedy...
    "A Randomized Evaluator Blinded Study of Effect of Microneedling in Androgenetic Alopecia (Int J Trichology. 2013 Jan-Mar; 5(1): 6–11.) showed that: "Dermaroller along with Minoxidil treated group was statistically superior to Minoxidil treated group in promoting hair growth in men with Androgenetic Alopecia for all 3 primary efficacy measures of hair growth. Microneedling is a safe and a promising tool in hair stimulation and also is useful to treat hair loss refractory to Minoxidil therapy."

    Nop.

    Hi guys,

    I haven't forgotten you nor given up on my routine. My phone crashed again and I had to reset it again... So I lost pictures of my hair again.

    What I will do is the following:
    • Post pictures of how is my hair right now (after ~3-4 months on minoxidil everyday), in this thread, this week.
    • Put some more details about my experience (in a nutshell, I apply too much minoxidil, I probably dermaroll a bit too hard, my beard and body hair starting growing stronger because of minoxidil).
    • In two months I will post new pictures so we will be able to tell if I am losing ground, maintaining, or growing hair.
    Update / remarks:
    • After discussing with a close friend of mine that is using propecia without side effects and maintaining, I am also considering to start that. But to do so I need to visit a hair doctor. I will call one this week.
    • I think the perilla leaves help at the very least with the itching: I forgot to take it for a couple of days and my scalp was starting to itch again...
    • Regarding results: I think I am growing new hair on my temples but they are vellus and sparse. Is it the expected pattern of 'regrow'?
    Cheers,
    Mazaza

    HI guys,

    I was using minoxidil for 2 years without any success. I gave up on it because it brought only more shedding.

    After reading this thread I decided to give it 3-4 months try with 3tubes of rogaine + dermaroller + perilla + anti-inflamatory diet and supplements . 5 weeks so far with no results on my head, however, I am getting more hairy on my chest.

    Have you ever experienced that?

    Is there a way to avoid that and to explain minoxidil to work on a body part where I apply it?:)
