Who knows if it deals with grey hairs as well. But.... After going thru the nightmare of baldness, I wouldn't care at all about greying hair. I'd actually like it. I envy those dudes complaining about their greying manes, having a full hair of freaking hair...It’s hard to say, I think my scalp improved pretty much straight away, not much regrowth for the 1st 4 week but then started to see small hairs where I was bald, hair feels stronger and looks darker, hoping it will help with my greying hair aswell

Great results, congrats to @Mezoot and @Longway886. I suppose early responders will be the ones who get the most radical regrowth in the long term. Let's hope so. Any of you guys actually got worst before getting better?
Also, @Mezoot, did you lose ground on Propecia and minoxidil over the 8 years of usage, or were you able to maintain??
Did you return to baseline after losing the gains of finas+minoxidil? Or you even went below baseline, and then went up to baseline again thanks to needling?I didn't get any worse and my hair got noticeably darker within a few weeks too.
I responded really well initially to finasteride+min and was above baseline for ~6+yrs. I lost ground the last few years but i'm probably right around baseline now.
I'm going to add the cortisone shampoo into the mix 3 times per week, I feel it's worth a shot to help with inflammation and it's currently 44% off the price. Hopefully I don't get any customs charges as my order is under £15.
My progress so far - i've been using a derminator and a 12 needle cartridge (new cartridge each session) at 1.5mm once a week for ~15mins. I use min, h&w topical finasteride, stemoxy, ordinary hair serum (makes my hair look better and has caffeine in it, why not) 1x day except needling days, ketoconazole ~2 a week, miconazole nitrate the other days. I've been using finasteride and min for 8+yrs (switched from oral to topical finasteride about 18months ago, accompanied by a huge initial shed) so I haven't seen regrowth in a long time.
The hairline pics are the day after my 3rd session (2 nov) vs the day after my 8th session (9 dec), both taken with flash
The crown pics are taken after rolling, numbered by weekly session. 2nd session - 8th session.
My hair is longer in the later crown pics and the first 2 pics are from a different angle with stronger lighting. The lighting from week 4-8 is as consistent as I can get it.
Minoxidil in its oral form is a blood pressure medication, the risk of using more is that it gets absorbed into your system and starts acting like the pill rather than the topical. Just watch out for the sides that might indicate that you're reacting to it getting absorbed into your system. I pasted some info for the pill below:Thanks for the answer. Do you think it's risky to use more?
So growth factors are more active around the edges of a bald spot closing it in gradually towards the center? Interesting. do you have a source by chance?Your crown is definitely closing in, and as wounding research shows us, this is exactly how a bald spot is supposed to close in because of how growth factors are released.
