    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.

    Well I added somebody's rolling after already being on the big 3 for 1.5 years. I'm about 4 months in, although I stopped doing every day and now do 4-5 days a week to give my scalp more recovery time because I was worried about the long term affects it might have on the skin of my scalp if I was never allowing it to completely heal

    Nothing cosmetically relevant to report at this point, although I'd already recovered to a NW2 when I added it and am just looking to get a NW1 back at this point, and I've been a NW2+ for like a decade so it may be it's just too late for those follicles

    I do think I'm going to keep up the rolling as I do think it's offered some enhancement of the minoxidil but I don't have confidence at this point it will get me back to a luscious NW1 like somebody has. I'm going to be restructuring my regimen in the next couple weeks because I feel I need something else to make the push I want

    Reasons for applying foam and making foam liquid.
    - Dries superfast
    - No inching scalp like with liquid minoxidil
    - No dandruff or white flakes
    - By making foam to liquid it don't stick in hair and it's easy to apply in target areas
    - Foligain foam is just litle more expensive then liquid

    Thanks for empowering feedback. I'm now my 5th year into full regrowth, means it's possible to keep minoxidil hair for long term. Good luck and thanks again
    P.S It could be awesome if you could post some pictures, but I understand if you don't and it's totally okey.

    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.
