What minoxidil were you using? Liquid or foam? And what strength?
Heres my update with pic below. I started needling dec 22nd, i have been on minoxidil for over a year and finasteride even longer. The pic is of my left temple. The yellow line indicates what i believe is growth from the year long usage of minoxidil. However, the bald spot, with the little hairs, i believe is from needling. The reason i believe this (and am prettty certain) is that i have been paying close attention to that area for a year, the most i have ever seen is peach fuzz, less than what you see here. So it could be a coincidence that after a year, minoxidil took it up a notch and decided to kick in, or min + needling really do work synergistically together.
I also feel that my crown is filling in a little bit, but i wont know for sure until i get a haircut because that will give a good comparison to my baseline picture, which illl post (assumming there is growth =P)
I am , checkout my regimen and my old posts if you want. ----------- im nw1 diffuse thinning tho 1 year of hairloss
Is that a pic of you in your display pic?
Sweet fk.. miss a day and there’s 24 pages of bullsh1t.. does anyone have a job?
Here's new growth on my hairline. Unfortunately I don't know if it is the result of Minoxidil or the roller or both. 2 1/2 months Min and 1 month rolling.
Yea unfortunately, there is no way of knowing, but who cares, thats awesome! Six years when my hair lost started, i was a really good responder to minoxidil, i went from a nw3 (diffuse hair loss) back down to my original thickness.
I think I’m pretty similar to this
I’m derminatoring and not on min.
I plan on going on min if I don’t see results at say 6 months. I’m around half way in.
Don't give up, if you're only microneedling it will take a lot longer to see results.
Some users needed some time off because they were linking their amazon shop for a commission. This is a consumer forum. You cannot do that.
We have not found any duplicates so far.
Please remain civil.
Also quick word of advice to anyone tempted to hit their forehead after their scalp - this sh*t gets red and stays red for a while. I’m gonna have zig zag red lines on my forehead for like a week now rip
I am needling without Minoxidil. 2 mm bi-monthly.
I'm 2 sessions in ('bout to be 3 ) so not much to say yet.
You should see a difference by week 6 so be patient, I sometimes you rosemary oil as a topical..also expect flaking for a while I don't get it now..
I respectfully disagree. Week 6 is still too early and only the best responders are able to see a true difference in such a short time. We must not predispose needlers to expect results that early (especially for those that are not applying minoxidil) . For the contrary, I think we should advice others not to expect anything until 6-12 months.
I know Bill knows this, just saying it in case any newcomer reads it.
Just got these bottles and made me a mix of Rosemary, Peppermint, Lavender and Castor as carrier in one of them and rolled directly on the scalp. Hope it helps even a little bit...
I mean existing hair thickness should improve I'm still not seeing any major regrowth so hoping the 6 month mark will be more realistic timeframe as you said..
Do you have long hair? If so isn't it difficult with the rollerball?
I think about 4cm. Tried it first time today and I think It's better...
You roll it directly on the scalp (+massage with the roller?), instead of the dropper I used before.
With the dropper, a lot of the oil was getting on the hair itself.
Also, my hands are oil-free (more comfortable and less oil goes to waste).
At least that is my experience with that...
But isn't it impossible to not roll over the hair with the rollerball?
If your method works well, that would help a lot of people I think. Can you make a tutorial vid?
