I came to Somebody's thread about 6-8 months ago, frantically looking for help. My hair was falling out, receding in the front, and balding BAD in the back. I immediately started buying the necessary products and was fully invested in growing my hair back. I did NOT choose to use Propecia. I would rather have the use of my manhood and a bald head any day. Anyways, the past 7 months or so, I have been dermarolling daily, until my scalp is fairly red. I probably do it more aggressive then what Alex suggests. I never do it hard enough to bleed or anything. I then apply a good amount of Rogaine foam, and massage it in. I did also purchase the Finnish brand Perilla leaf pills, and take 1 every day. I also use a shampoo and conditioner daily, before I dermaroll and apply Rogaine. The brand is Pura Do'r and the shampoo and conditioner come in gold-labeled bottles. I cannot say enough good things about it. A big reason why I think I've had such luck regrowing. Not only is my hair not receding anymore, the bald spot on the back of my head is GONE and completely full! My balding/receding spots up front have filled in VERY nicely, and I can see LOTS of baby blonde hairs coming back in where I was previously bald! I am absolutely astounded at my results, and could not be happier. THANK YOU ALEX! You've truly changed my life. *I also started exercising more and eating a lot cleaner, I cut out soda and refined sugar completely.
