    Little patch of hair at the hairline bottom pic is 1 month and top pic is 2.5 months. The arrow is pointing to a little red mole I have and the circles are the same hairs in the pics. Noticed tiny little hairs sprouting at around a month. Looks like some of those tiny hairs have grown out and more are sprouting

    Your right, I could try that as well. Its really helped my acne. It don't believe it messes with testosterone as I have a very healthy libido, feel great and have no side effects as far as I can tell, knock on wood. I guess taking mild DHT blockers internally, and using them topically might yield better results? Who knows.

    But, you can't just apply rosemary oil on to the scalp. It would burn and also it is suggested that a carrier should be used with rosemary mainly because of that. I'm afraid that water also can't be used as Essential oils don't mix well with water. And for daily use I can't use other oils as a vehicle. Thus, I thought I may make DIY rosemary oil topical using alcohol

    Tomorrow will be my first session since remembering I had 2 bottles of iodine here. Have a lot of work to do this weekend &probably won't leave the house much so I'll be able to use it frequently throughout the day. Any detail on how much and how often to use? And did they use every day or just the first 24, 48 hours?

    I believe 2young2retire also used betadine. But the sketchy thing about him is that he no longer posts his current hair status

    Got nothing but money to lose so maybe I should try it out aswell. I wonder if I can add it to my regimen with essential oils and castor oil? Just leave it on over night. Haven't found any good reviews on natural dht blockers though.

    Exactly.. he had to say it worked due to the butchering he gave himself. He would look ridiculous if nothing was gained from all that blood.

    I swear this never gets any less painful. I dunno how some people have been doing more than once per week

    So now that we're suspecting betadine is important how much should we apply and when?

    I've never used betadine. I am sure there are extra things people could take to get better results but my results are from dermaroller, minoxidil and occasional Nizoral use. I smoke and my diet is not good.

    I'm not suggesting that betadine won't help - I have no idea - but, from my experience, it isn't key to getting results.

    I keep getting asked questions on Reddit about applying minoxidil. I ordered about 100 pipettes off Amazon for about £4. The sharper point makes it much easier to get it through your hair and directly on to your scalp. If you lean your head in different directions, you will be able to feel the minoxidil liquid running across your scalp.

    The ones I got hold 5ml, but it is clearly marked 1ml, 2ml, 3ml etc so you know exactly how much you're using.

    There is only one mention of betadine in the study:

    The shaven scalp was prepared with betadine and normal saline. A dermaroller of 1.5 mm sized needles was rolled over the affected areas of the scalp in a longitudinal, vertical, and diagonal directions until mild erythema was noted, which was considered as the end point of the procedure.


    I guess you should apply it before microneedling. My hair is far too long to get betadine on my scalp.

    You are an exception. More people than not had success with betadine. Even the dude from the foreign language forum who was rolling hard uses it

    @jiggo - No one knows for sure. You can read 385 pages to make your own assessment though. There's lots of results throughout and plenty of anecdotes.

    Plenty of people seem to be re-growing hair. Maintenance is another story. There's only so many people that's been doing this long enough to give any idea. Signs are positive though. Participants in the studies kept their new hair for quite awhile as well... can't remember which study, but 18 months or so afterwards.

    I've been avoiding this for a long time but I need to stop lying to myself and admit it.
    I am quite confident that finasteride/dutasteride caused massive brain fog and crippled my neuro-steroids.
    I am not trying to brag but I've been a very smart chap all my life, I was very fast to pick up concepts in class until eventually I started taking propecia and it slowly increased the brain fog.

    In the last 3 years only a few times I've felt this strange feeling of a huge burden being lifted from my head and I could think very clearly. Today is that day. I cannot tell you how different and free I feel as compared to other days in my life where I feel crippled. I think these few days I've experienced were either the days where I forgot to pop a pill or the pill did not work for whatever reason (maybe was not broken down by enzymes).

    Joe rogan has talked about depressive symptoms of propecia on his podcast and several others have mentioned it too. So, I am sure it's not a fluke.
    I feel so good today, I cannot describe that feeling in words. I am considering quitting dutasteride but I am afraid I will lose my hair rapidly. Anyone else here has quit propecia/dutasteride and maintained hair with dermarolling etc.? Please share your experience if you have.
