Quorum sensing. It plays a role, but it's not causing hair loss. If you implant a healthy hair from the back of the head to the center of your bald spot it will grow healthy for life in most cases despite being surrounded by miniaturized hairs.Whatever it is, it's something which progresses from follicle to follicle. I've grown a lot of hair on my temples, but new hair is always growing adjacent to existing hair. What i mean is it doesn't "jump" 1cm and new hair appears so far away.
I heard on (the Australian hair transplant clinic podcast on Youtube?) something about cells transmit signals to adjacent cells. I think baldness is most-likely related to this.
Hair loss is the red-headed stepchild of research. It is apparently very difficult to get the basic research doneGood for the link, 15 years ago and it seem that we are not progressed yet

The important key pointed to Bryan
This is an important issue in order to clear all doubts, an study in healthy scalp hairs in prepubertal in both sexes and in two areas of head, including sebum, steroids and androgen receptors. Is it so difficult to make?
Yes, exactly it is my thought, then whorl in the crown area and front line are more prone to suffer common baldness, because they are more "solitaries" with less contact among themI assume you're being sarcastic but it's actually an important point.
It means a follicle's ability to grow seems dependent on nearby follicles.
But only checking sebum in scalp prepubertal coul be a huge advance
Yes fevi still looks like an interesting angle, another private forum also had a gb not long ago but I haven't seen any results yet.
What sides did you get?Damn, wish i didn't get nasty sides from minoxidil
light headedness/headache/brainfog, water retention especially in joints, decent amount of gastric distress. tried it a few times over the last 5 years or so and it's always the same unfortunatelyYes fevi still looks like an interesting angle, another private forum also had a gb not long ago but I haven't seen any results yet.
What sides did you get?
Went from dad to son lolI believe 1x/day for minoxidil is enough because of its half life.
And another one, this guys use topical finasteride/minoxidil
I concur with W. Rassman comment,I believe 1x/day for minoxidil is enough because of its half life.
And another one, this guys use topical finasteride/minoxidil + biweekly needling
"I use to be on oral finasteride. And topical min. Had sides. Quit for a couple years. Topical finasteride/min came out from hims and I jumped on that and here we are!"
Yeah he answered and posted this pic:I concur with W. Rassman comment,
"The before picture has hair that is very short. Your blonde hair makes it difficult to analyze the before picture but the after picture shows a full head of hair. I wonder how much of that hair was there before?"
Just updating 3 months in for myself and others. Not sure if I've had any change tbh.Same lighting (sunlight) different angle I've used it 4 times. Once a week. I find sunlight is the harshest and least flattering. I have the same length of 1.5mm (12 needles)and I believe it's doing more. It feels deeper, which is odd as it's the same length. I got some surgical spirit to clean it and I just pop it in for twenty mins then brush off the dead skin cells with a toothbrush I don't use on my teeth. Couple days after my head itches like a son of a b**ch but feels great after a brush.
