Yes, give it a month or less and if you don't have a massime AA,it works
Not sure if it's for lacking of zinc (this world is mostly tap water, plastic, processed foods etc) or for its very mild 5ar inhibition effect.
2ml once daily imo, dont overdose it, and away from food cause zinc competes with magnesium, iron, copper etc for absorption and has a maximum of absorption per time
thanks! What do u mean by ‘a massive AA’?

I've done 6 or 7 sessions now trying to follow the follica protocol (30 min sessions on fast setting) so approaching 3 months. I started oral minoxidil 5mg around 3 weeks ago.

What i have noticed:

- Hair is shedding. Ive never been a big shedder so this is worrying for me, thick terminals too.
- Density is down. As a diffuse thinner I don't have a lot to spare, so things are looking bad right now
- Scalp is itchy - When I first starting thinning back in 2012 I had the feeling of itching and insects crawling on my scalp. This feeling has come back for the first time since then and it goes hand in hand with the shedding and density decrease

Of course, people will say I'm doing it wrong because obviously the protocol cannot fail, but after 3 months you'd think you'd see some signs of improvement or indication that its working.

holy jesus f*** why does nothing work - I was looking at pctures from 2014 when I was visibly balding (ppl were telling me) and that looks a whole lot better than the sh*t i have left now. if i didnt have toppik and nearly full coverage i'd be so screwed
Why not topical minoxidil?

Sorry man I’m not quite sure what u mean. You mean if you don’t have severe balding then it has a good chance of working? Do u know what the mechanism behind it is? thanks!
Yes,thats what i meant. The mechanism is unclear because of the several enzymes that zinc affects. Its proved that zinc regulates hormones at some levels, so its likely to be the culprit, even if vit b5 has some effects in vitro.of course cant be effective as finasteride, thats why i was referring to the severity of your alopecia.
High levels of zinc (not zix levels tho) are also proved to be anti androgenic.
We don't have a definitive study in vivo about it because this compound cant be patented

My hair is comming back after 1 month of treatment - every other day 1.5 - 2 ml +derma pen
Hi arromanus
Can you elaborate please when you say “ hair coming back”?
And confused about your regimen you say every other day dermapen use? What depth?
And minoxidil every day as well? Thanks

Damn, I should read your post a few years earlier. I would try this pantostin, but now im using NGF547 and this Multi Peptide Serum, it would be to much topicals to use daily. I will probably order some after I finish the Ordinary Serum, cause a side effect free topical AA would be good. I was already thinking about Eucapil but that is much cheaper and the efficacy is on both questionable, though they should work in theory.
Did you do any research on eucapil? I mean do we have someone with results(pics)?

I always hated applying minoxidil but recently I found a smoother way to apply it and that's by grabbing the screw cap part of the dropper and just tapping my scalp with the dropper. Sort of like I'm needling. The dropper applies enough min to my scalp without wasting any on my hair and just overall less hassle.

Sorry if it is already discussed before but would it be of help to use Biotin and MSM to boos the minoxidil and needling regrown hairs? What are your thoughts about it?

I was microneedling the day before yesterday and my shedding has been reduced DRASTICALLY. I am even hesitant to say that because it might be a fluke and nothing good ever seems to happen to me but I am really, really surprised so far...
Didn't even start Zix yet, which is the baffling part.

What's up guys. I was following this important thread when it started but didnt feel comfortable trying it until there was a little more evidence it worked. Safe to safe it works (by what I've read). Can someone please help me find the best place to buy the derminator 2? Is the only place that owndoc site? Im shipping to Canada and it seems the ETA is LONG due to covid. I'd obviously prefer for it to get here ASAP. It seems i can get a dr. pan pretty quickly on amazon https://www.amazon.com/Dr-Pen-Ultim...1&keywords=derminator+2&qid=1591301696&sr=8-2
Should I just go with this due to getting it quickly? IS this one of the dr. pens ya'll recommend? Sorry if this info is somewhere in this 600 page thread! It's very time consuming to go through all the pages. Currently at pg 270! Thanks for the help, this is exciting...
