Did you catch the LL Cool J reference or am I just seriously old?
We are extremely happy to announce that S5 Cream is once again available for purchase online. HairLossTalk will not be handling any portion of the sale, billing, manufacturing of the product, but fortunately this is a big wide world, and another company overseas has decided to start manufacturing it again. So we are hooking you up.
We negotiated with them a special price for HairLossTalk Members, but you must order through links found on our store (which really just sit on a couple “placehodler” pages).
Please bookmark these pages and order through them, ongoing:
S5 Cream | S5 Plus Cream
This will ensure that you get the current price forever, as they may increase over time for other customers.
Please be sure you also review this page for important information on the new products.
Glad you asked. We’ve managed to talk them into creating a Topical Spironolactone product that has Alfatradiol and Tempol in it as well. If I were to try and explain to you why this is such a big freaking deal, you would pass out from the boring hair-nerd-ness of the science behind it all. Let’s just say that really smart people have been discussing Alfatradiol and Tempol for literally years on our forums, and trying to source it as a topical for their hair loss. One forum user referred to it as equivalent to Propecia, but topical and therefore no side effects.
Its interesting to note that Topical Spironolactone is an Androgen Blocker. This means it competes for receptor sites where the scary DHT stuff attaches and harms your follicles. Then you’ve got Propecia which actually reduces quantity of DHT in your bloodstream and tissues. So the two of them really work synergistically and are 100% complementary to eachother.
So what’s Alfatradiol? At the risk of simplifying things too much, you can consider it akin to a “Topical Propecia”. It has been shown to directly reduce the tissue-DHT in the scalp, with none of the side effects of Propecia.
For guys who are sensitive to Finasteride side effects, S5 Plus Cream could be a way for you to reproduce the Propecia+Spiro Regimen all in one topical. For guys who are on Propecia and doing just fine, well, this gives you a “localized” boost for DHT inhibition. Meanwhile the Spironolactone will do its job blocking the receptors.
As for the Tempol? Well that’s even more complex to explain. Just take our word for it: Its yet another incredibly interesting angle to hit the whole “Androgenetic Alopecia” problem from. If you want to know more of the detailed science on both of these, we will be building out the following page with all the data and information we can find on the topic here: S5 Plus Cream – Experts Review.
Since I know you’re going to be lazy and not reat that important information link I posted above, let me scream through its contents really quickly, so I know you’re aware: The new S5 is the same formula as the previous “S5 Bedtime” cream, which means no caffeine. The manufacturer is shipping from overseas so its about $25, but this $25 is flat rate, so you can order any quantity and it will never increase. You have to pay with PayPal, but PayPal has a “Debit/Credit Card” button that you can click and just use your credit card. And shipping is going to take a long time, which isn’t great news, but its the price we pay for living in a country that feels the need to “protect us from ourselves” by making it illegal for us to get things we need sometimes. Oh yeah – and that whole thing about making sure you order from the S5 Cream links on our store always. Super important.
So I’m just going to keep this real and be blunt. There’s another website out there claiming to have a Topical Spironolactone product. You may or may not have heard about it, but we’ve received numerous complaints about the product not arriving, no response from the site owner, and products arriving “separated” (not mixed or prepared properly). I personally contacted the owner of this site three different times to discuss his Topical Spironolactone product, and he did not respond. We then found that he’d literally stolen all the content from our S5 Cream Page and pasted it onto his store as his “product description”. Including the part where I was blathering on about how I’ve been using it as the owner of this site for 7 years, etc.
Usually not good signs for someone you’ve got to trust to make a treatment you can rely on.
The product being received separated and not properly mixed is of greatest concern to me though. In order to properly make S5 Cream, it needs to be heated to a certain temperature, and some pretty advanced science needs to go down before it will cool and stay properly mixed. More importantly, if this guy is taking shortcuts, and mixing the stuff in his kitchen with a spatula, then the chances that he’s including *absorption* vehicles that actually work, are slim to none. That means it may just sit on your scalp and not do a darn thing.
Needless to say I would strongly recommend that you not purchase from this particular website, even though I can’t say the name of it. We are only supporting this current manufacturer because I personally emailed them the formula and I know they have the facilities to create products like these, because they do it for countless other products on a large scale. If some more reputable sources come online in the future, we will definitely let you know, because we will definitely be sending them customers on a regular basis either way.
This particular site though which starts with “whole…” – I would avoid. I’m not a fan of people who steal content.
Cheers – and any order issues, please use the contact form on the manufacturers website.
