    Hi guys

    in July and August I was obsessing about my hair-loss and it was not doing my mental state of mind any good. So I read a lot on this forum- I did post my story but I then made some decisions on treatment. I decided against finasteride the fear was too real to even try for me.


    1. 5% Minoxidil Liquid Twice a day
    2. Derma-rolling Once a week
    3.Pura D'or Premium Organic Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo (1% Keta + broad spectrum DHT blocking ingredients)
    4. Biotin, Zinc, MSM, Saw Palmeto tablets everyday.

    I also try to eat healthy, also started Vit D,and A Supps last week.
    I experienced no side effects from anything.

    I am feeling positive and try not to obsess over my hair. There was some shedding when I started minoxidil, although it was only a few hairs on my hands in the shower. Didn't really count or obsess over it, just did my routine.

    This was my hairline in July 2016

    Very good progress, congrats :). Seems that Minoxidil either works very fast or not at all. Have you thought about RU58441, because in the long run you (most likely) need an anti-androgen.

    Better results than a lot of hair transplants, that's the power of minoxidil when it works.

    Thanks guys, I am pretty stoked. I hope my vortex stays in tact o_O But yes Iggy - I need a DHT blocker. RU seems like the biggest mission ever- I am in South Africa - how do I get that here?

    There is a hair loss clinic here that sells a topical minoxidil/finasteride combo- thinking of getting that when my Rogain minoxidil is done what do you guys think?

    Never heard really good things about topical Finasteride, but it would probably cheaper to make some topical lotion yourself. No idea, how to get RU in South Africa, have you mailed Anagenic?

    I go at it pretty hard on a 1.0mm - I seem to not bleed that easily there- had 1 or 2 small spots that started to bleeding but it was not even a drop

    hey man just checked anageninc site out seems like they ship to my country. I am really considering it- saw the video on their site looks so legit. What % should I take and in which carrier? I feel my balding not that aggressive so 3% should prob be okay just to maintain or what do you think?

    like a sharp cannula, it is just not sharp, but blunt The best way to get topicals on the scalp and not on the hair. :)
