    I meant that in Androgenetic Alopecia, follicles don't die, they atrophy but they're still around ("go dormant"). If negative factors are removed or diminished, or a specific growth stimulus is produced, follicles regain vigor and hair can potentially grow again, in time.

    I have the up most respect for Brotzu (if this lotion works well) but you can see in the video and other pics his hairline is not perfect.
    If anyone was going to use it to fix their hair first it would be the lotion's creator.
    I'm guessing where he has lost hair it has been over a long period of time, he's an elderly man.
    So this says to me if the hair has been long gone with Androgenetic Alopecia this lotion is not gonna bring your hair back.

    They don't, they atrophy, which is different. Treatments can potentially induce healthy hair growth once more if all the factors are addressed.


    Male Pattern Balding May Be Due to Stem Cell Inactivation. The authors concluded that totally bald scalps do not have fewer hair follicle stem cells, but rather, fewer specialized progenitor cells.

    if we trust the work by dr. sinclair, once the apm has detached, the follicle is gone for good. plus don't forget about fibrosis.

    right, he has a less than perfect hairline in his 80s, and would be treating it.
    i think we might lose a realistic perspective in these 3ds...

    @hilbert any good info that you can interpret from the dermatologist article that Brotzu speaks about and that has been posted in brotzu forums on this site before?

    Maintenance would be more than great to me.

    Here's my plan: Brotzu's lotion to maintain what I've got and then Tsuji to fill in the temples in 2020.

    Are you currently on finasteride? I used to have the same problem (greasy scalp + Androgenetic Alopecia) and finasteride was wonderful. It didn't just stop the hairloss, it also improved the appearance of the scalp. Everyone is different though, and results vary greatly.

    Yeah, brotzu seems to be our only hope to bridge us till maybe Follica, Histogen, and Replicel. For those with more hair loss Tsuji is the definitive answer. It is a reach, but if Fida can release their lotion before 2017 still, I may be able to get by with just the lotion and maybe Histogen for the temples.

    That's my plan as well. I joined the Brotzu Italian GB in the meantime.

    Just saw you live in NYC as well, nice to have a fellow NYC'er here.

    yeah, for sure bro. Props for taking the plunge on that group buy. I wasnt sure if there would be a problem with customs, and or if it was gonna be effective. I wonder if HairLossTalk.com would be able to organize our own group buy if its known to start working.

    Would anyone on HairLossTalk.com be willing to formulate a United States/Canada group and do what the italian GB is doing? I am participating in the GB but U.S. would be much easier for everyone here and that lotion is only going to last people 2 months. We would obviously need a chemist/someone who owns a sonicator as well which is difficult to find.

    Do you have the link for the group buy on the Italian forum? I've been searching for it but can't seem to find it.
