    Thanks overpourgoodfortune, of course it wont happen over night, not even with a hair transplant.

    I considering to support growth with applying minoxidil once a day only in the temple area. As the area is not huge 0.5 ml should be as much as I need per day.

    Lets assume we are successful and it works, what will we do in 2 to 3 years when in most cases min is not working anymore? Hoping that CB is ready by then? It would be a shame if all the effort is just temporary :)

    I needle every 2 weeks, once a week is to much. I would not have recovered enough to needle in such short periods.

    Maybe needling will be enough for maintenance.

    That's the next thing we need to trial imo.

    Are you 100% sure about this? I mean, do you have pictures that clearly show this? I am not questioning you, but I know myself it is hard to gauge whether the hairs you are focusing on are new growth or recently miniaturised hairs

    Do we know if needling also works on transplanted follicles?

    I tried changing it to every 2 weeks from every 1 week and for me, progress seemed to slow right down after a months or so.....went back to every 1 week.

    Even at 2mm my scalp is fully healed within a week.

    People talk about recovery. I feel like I'm fully recovered within 48 hours. By that same logic I could try to needle every other day? Or maybe try twice a week? I'm also contemplating stopping the minoxidil 24 hour break after a needle session. So, needling twice a week and then keep using minoxidil non-stop.

    BTW I have been doing this for over 2 months. Cant say much really, except that I feel better about my hair than when I first started needling. I MAY have some modest regrowth at my...what do you call it...those temple points?

    Hard to tell. Nothing obvious.

    My partner is going to do some photography at 6M :)

    I’m hoping that there are baby hairs everywhere!!!!

    @ryan r - My scalp is usually no longer tender after 2-3 days. Though Day 4'ish the skin starts to peel and flake away. In that sense - despite my scalp feeling "okay" ... until I rid my scalp of the layer of dead skin now on it, I avoid needling. It takes awhile for that to all come up and brush it away. Usually between Day 7-10 somewhere I notice it get better.

    But then - some people don't peel here at all?!

    In terms of frequency - it is a bit of a guessing game. The studies went between 1 week and 2 weeks ... numberman replicated that by doing a week in between 2mm sessions. We know results can happen within that type of frequency. Is it best for everyone? It's all trial and error at this point in time.

    Have you noticed any side effects from oral minoxidil? How long have you been using it?

    I read in a study that the damaged cells still haven't fully recovered 5 days after wounding.....so you may feel that you head it healed, but on a cellular level they wont be and you are not allowing the healing process to do its thing.

    I think the healing process is something we kind of make assumptions about, I mean chen was able to get incredible results needling literally every day so I don't think we understand 100% how all that works

    At the same time, Gomi was obsessive about the minutiae of the healing process and also achieved great results. So who knows

    Very true.....just angiogenesis comes slightly later in the healing process and I think its important....but again assumptions on my part.

    7 weeks on min/sandalore and 3 sessions (once a week) with 1.5mm roller and I'm seeing new thin but pigmented hairs especially on crown. Was on big 3 for over a year with pretty much no results so this is encouraging to see anything so early. 20190312_212001.jpg

    Hey guys, is anyone able to offer some reassurance through their experience with shedding whinin the first few weeks? I feel like my hair is the worst it’s ever been due to this shed after starting just under 4 weeks ago. Heavily reliant on Toppik, and it’s getting to the point where that’s not even effective - did anyone else go though the same and have a turn around in the following few weeks?

    1.5mm per week
    Min twice a day
    finasteride daily

    Already asked many times; Yeah it's normal to be shedding in the beginning. Numberguy who had great results, experienced the same.

    Now I’m certain about my crown is back to being as hard as a rock.

    I derminated my scalp last Friday NZT. My scalp / crown felt noticeably softer for a few days after needling.

    Today is Wednesday NZT and it’s really hard. Booooo!

    One other person has reported back experiencing the same thing. Anybody else get this?

    @Francky85 im going to try needling daily at 1.00mm like @chen almost as a form of massage.

    My theory is that at that depth it won’t interfere with cell healing. Rather I’m just breaking down calcification.

    What do you think?

    Was Chen really wounding though? Im talking about really drawing blood and pressing very hard.

    You are probably gonna get crazy good results. I had the same thing when I started finasteride. Super sick shedding. Ten + years later Im still walking around with a lot of hair. So, the shedding is actually a great sign!

    That looks like a lot of New hair - congrats. What Kind of sandalore do you use and how you apply it? Do you mix it with min?
