    Here are my results derma rolling for anyone curious, I didn't use minoxidil either. I have been on finasteride for 2 months now but that was to just help keep and expand on my gains. I regrow a decent amount before finasteride, most of the regrowth is from scalp massages, 1.5mm rolling and zinc pyrith + nizoral. My hairline still needs a good amount of regrowing but based on vellus hair it should cap out at NW2 in 6-12 months. I'm coming from a NW4.5 and currently I'm about NW4-3.5 although with some restored density. It's surprising how many people dismiss microneedling as bullshit since it just doesn't work for them

    Out of interest what time frame is between those pics? They are also very good.

    Oh, dude, these make me even more excited about microneedling.
    May I ask, how do you approach massaging? I plan on massaging + microneedling, but not sure how I should do it.
    Pretty good results!

    How about a video to show the new growth, updated results? I wouldn’t mind seeing the near full head.

    I got very very small hair growth on my temples, kinda like the beginning of beard growth except not as prickly. But more prickly than those flimsy baby hairs. God damn I look at my hair too much. Been a couple weeks since they sprouted and they don't grow six sessions in

    The 2nd picture was last night and I believe the first one was 5 months ago, I lost my time stamps when transferring photos to my PC from Android for space.

    Why DrRoller? I just looked it up and here in Italy it costs €50. It looks like any other €5 dermaroller you can find on amazon.

    Dr.Roller was usually considered one of the best rollers back when I was looking although it was far too expensive for me. I was actually looking at getting a cheaper derma roller that was out of stock and since they had no stock for 1.5mm they replaced the cheap one with a Dr.Roller so I got a quality roller for $18 AUD. It's far better than the ZGTS Roller I was using previously which didn't puncture too well and required me to use more force except when doing that the head would start to clip out. I've only used 2 brands of rollers personally but as far as rollers go the Dr.Roller is basically perfect in terms of rollers for me, it doesn't even get stuck in my hair. Any roller should theoretically work, just make sure to get a 192 needle roller with real needles as the 540 ones typically use triangular metal discs with don't penetrate as well and have the potential for microtearing. They are only made to cut down on costs so you typically want a quality 1.5-2mm 192 needle roller with real needles.

    My itch has completely gone and hair feels and looks a lot better, I’ve carried on doing micro needling + minoxidil and sandalor

    Your pics aren't consistent at all. I hope you're not misleading yourself and others. I don't mean this as an attack. I just know that my hair can look wildly different unless I take photos exactly the same way. I can convince myself I'm a nw1 or a nw6 depending on lighting and camera position and I'm not exaggerating at all.

    Those two pictures are taken in the exact same location and way, being with wet hair under the heat lamp after a shower with flash on. I think the first one just looks different since I missed framing it and took it far too close as where the second one is further back which I also think messed with the white balance, I cropped the 2nd one to like a 4th of it's size.

    You can see the regrowth the best in my first hairloss album which I posted months ago, I also attached a more recent hairline shot

    Currently my density is improved but I still have a bald patch on my crown and my hairline is still awful but not quite as bad, I'll probably make my own post on Reddit once I feel my regrowth is significant enough. I've taken lots of pictures and I was doing updates at one stage but I got lazier as my hair got better as the anxiety of hairloss used to drive me.

    Looks good if there’s no fibers involved. My hair looks the same but when it’s washed with no Nanogen it’s a different story!

    You’re lucky you can use minoxidil.
