    I'm not sure what that means -- I haven't lost more hair since I started. What hair appears to be growing, is growing in the reverse pattern as I lost it.

    The guys complaining about not getting to norwood 0 or 1 seem odd to me. I've been balding since a teenager (I'm 36 now). It got me upset in the beginning and I'd check this board every year and everything was always "5-6 years away" and most people lost hope and assumed going bald was inevitable. Now people are growing their hair back in a matter of months and it's still hard for me (and many others) to believe. If you're at a n1 or n2 or whatever and you're on this board, you may be the first people in human existence that were able to "catch their hairloss before it got worse" and believe with some confidence that you can keep the hair you have without paying for transplants.

    This was my thought before as well, until i used the derminator. I think absorption is increased even days after because i can feel my scalp sting a bit from the sweqt while at the gym a day after using it

    I use the Puritans pride brand of Tumeric and Pumpkin seed oil. Both in capsules. 1000mg each. I take 1 Pso and 1 Tumeric a day.

    I agree with the first part almost entirely (except that healing of the scalp is just 2 days, it’s much longer - but I get what you meant) and also wanted to add something.

    If we assume for a moment that dermarolling helps to get rid of fibrosis (not a small assumption though), it’d imply that Minoxidil would penetrate better and perhaps that explains why people (like me) with years of Minoxidil before didn’t have great results until now.

    On the other hand even though I started putting Minoxidil right after, I’m not so sure if it’s beneficial or not so I can’t take any side.

    Wouldn't it be better to use it topical?

    I'm a norwood 2 and I've been dermarolling more than 2 months now and have been seeing som light fuzz at my temples and front, but yesterday I notice a couple of tall hairs at my right temple on a bald spot close to my hairline like it's starting to close in.

    About to do 6th session, but so far nothing to report other than what looks like baby hairs(vellus?) on the temple point area. Had my first experience with heart rate increase using min. I did a bit over the usual 1ml and starting feeling really anxious shortly after, which made it hard to go to sleep. I've only been using min at night

    This is a bit off topic. I want to make a DIY topical using Rosemary oil. What kind of ethanol would be okay to use as a driver? Please let me know. Thanks

    I can definitely see those and even this morning I noticed a single hair in the very front, quite far from the rest. Probably somewhere where my original hairline was. These kind of things make you even happier (even though I’m buzzed and I already see a lot of changes overall).

    I started microneedling last Friday after seeing this & the other thread, just finished my second session.
    I use the MyM derma pen, which is pretty good, and only cost $25 on ebay.
    I'm NW2-2.5, have been using minoxidil for a year.
    I've lost some ground since I started min, but here's hoping that changes. Just a week after my first session some of my tiny blond temple hairs have turned black.
    2.5mm weekly, lidocaine 2% prior, minoxidil immediately after.

    I'll never take finasteride. I found the Indian study while I was looking for alternatives to finasteride and hair transplants lol.

    I agree with what you've said but my motivation for finding a solution to hair loss was my fear of taking finasteride and experiencing sides.

    Absortion /effect of minoxidil can be modified only with damp scalp
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27356887
    Minoxidil topical treatment may be more efficient if applied on damp scalp in comparison with dry scalp.

    also a thread
    https://www.hairlosstalk.com/intera...se-absorption-of-minoxidil-by-3-5times.58392/

    BTW interesting about grapefruit and finas

    Good old times, I "knew" Bryan in alt.baldspot.sci,

    It likely doesn't have a permanent change in the scalp, which means it is super relevant to put minoxidil right after.
    Looks like you are defeating your own argument here?

    I am doing light penning every other day to help absorption as well during the healing process, because I believe the scalp closes up quickly. So I don't change my minoxidil regimen, just more penning = more absorption, and the sooner the better so scalp is still wide open in my opinion.

    Man it's crazy, when I watched that show I thought nothing of their hair. Now when I watch reruns I notice how thin their hair is. Niles hairline gradually gets worse over the seasons lol

    Amazing work!

    Would you mind copy-pasting that into the survey thread I created, so we have all the results photos with the survey data in one place?

    Thanks

    @benjt2 - I'm working on something behind the scenes here. Probably a few days away though.

    Isn't rosemary a small enough molecular weight as an essential oil to pass through skin without a vehicle?

    Guys. The reason why the Indian study worked so well is because they used betadine during and after. This is important and being missed by many.

    Google "iodine hair growth"

    @JJL58 - It is an interesting point. What do you mean by 'during' though? Before... you mean?
