      You can fix hair loss with oils, supplements, massages, etc. only if your hair loss isn't androgenic/MPB.
      Even if you manage to grow hair using these methods, it'll get murdered by DHT in your scalp at some point and you'll start panicking and running in circles again wondering how the frick it happened since it worked before.

      The only way to actually stop and reverse androgenic hair loss is by suppressing the DHT in your scalp.
      You can use topicals for that if you don't want to use pills that go systemic. Remember that topical dutasteride isn't absorbed topically due to its molecular weight/size, whereas topical finasteride is.

          there are human & mouse studies for topical peppermint oil and rosemary oil, as well as combo therapies like peppermint + minoxidil vs just minoxidil
          There are also scalp massage studies with loads of pictures. Scalp massages require a lot of commitment tho, 20-30 min a day forever

            yeah Ive seen those studies. turns out rosemary is half as effective as minoxidil.
            would you recommend essential oils for a middle aged man with nw2? I think I lost hair due to scalp acne, dry skin, vitamin deficiency and dht. i know this because my problematic right side is way worse than my left temple.

            I also think there is some truth to the scalp tension theory as i mostly chewed on my right side and my chewing muscles are just twice as large on my right side, which includes the temple.

            massages must be good but i cant force myself to do it 30 min a day every single day. its just painful. applying these shitty oils, washing (longer) hair is just enough pain in the ass.

            microneedling is superb. everyone should do it. im too lazy to be consistent but its good.

            red light therapy must work too and you can be done with it while shitposting. only problem is those shitty hats are overpriced as frick so i would recommend an rlt facemask instead and just flip it over your head and it helps with your face too. 2birds one stone.

            a rundown on useful essential oils and some anecdotal experiences would be nice. Im in a position where I cant give up more of my hair or else im gonna look like a clown.

            I used rosemary with castor for 4 months then 2 off and I see babyhairs. Problem is Im not sure if they were there before but it seems like they def grown in numbers and some got a lil longer too.
            now with my 2nd wind I will apply them religiously for another 4 months and we will def see whats up.

          Hair loss can be caused by a lot of different things.
          Traction alopecia (pulling on the hair), immune reactions, hair loss from stress, from bad diets (not enough vitamins/nutrients), scalp irritation as the other anon said, genetic disorders that cause hair loss, etc. I saw a post on reddit once of a guy with insanely thick hair that just spontaneously started losing hair all over his head (AKA not androgenic alopecia), but fixed it with minoxidil.
          Luckily (if that's how you can call it) almost all cases of hair loss in dudes will just be androgenic alopecia, so it's clear and simple what it is and how to combat it.

    his hair are longer in each segment. pic looks like a temporary shed caused by a nutrient deficiency, could be even a bad case of sesonal shed, not even close to male pattern baldness, the one that's relavant to 99% of balding men. and yes, finasteride is nearly 100% effective at stopping balding for at least10 years and regrows at least some hair in around 60% of people. minoxidil doesn't work at all for around half of the population and it doesn't stop hairloss, only regrows some hair for as long as you keep using it.

        no, all it does is reducing the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT, so about 40-50% less gets transformed and you end up with slightly more test, about 10% more. if someone is extremely susceptible to aromatization, that small test increase could potentially increase estrogen, but it's very unlikely and any test increase by other means would've caused it too. this whole point comes down to being afraid of slightly higher test because of potential gyno, which is ridiculous

        I signed up on hims and got topical fin+minoxidil. After a month I noticed I had ED. Stopped taking it and was able to have full erections three weeks later.
        Started taking it again at half-dose and after a month and a half noticed I had ED again.
        The first time I didn't read anything about the side effects because I was a 27 year old fit male with no chronic illnesses so I figured nothing would happen. That being said, I think it's indisputable ATM fin+min are the best we have for fighting hair loss, but to pretend there are no chance of side effects is misleading.
        Alternatively, while Nutrafol seems overpriced and full of unnecessary/useless ingredients, the one thing in there that seems the most promising is saw palmetto, since that seems to have an effect on the DHT conversion process in a similar way to fin.

          I ordered there once so far, the delivery was very slow and they ignored my email at first, but they replied to my second email that the delivery can take up to 4 weeks and I received it exactly at 4 weeks. I still have some leftover topical dut I still use, but it's probably expired now (the product page says 6 months, but I read that realistically it's closer to 3 for topical dut) and I managed to finally get a fin prescription recently. as for topical minox I ordered there, it's way too expensive for something I can get basically for free by titrating 2-3 drops of topical min using an insulin syringe, as it's safe to ingest, because, other than min, it contains just propylene glycol and ethanol. I may order tretinoin there in the future if I run out before finding it for cheaper.

    Nope. On topical/oral fin and min and still losing ground. In fact, my hairloss accelerated once I got on oral fin in particular. I had a four month shed that took me back to a shitty shitty NW3 and now here I am, still thinning out in the front and in the last few months the back has started noticeably going too.

    The only thing left is to try dutasteride, or try to get my hands on some RU I guess. Feel pretty defeated. It's just over honestly, I'm fricked. The only way to ever have good hair again is getting a $6000+ transplant and then it's temporary since finasteride isn't saving my hair.

      a shed can last up to 7 months and the recovery starts being visible after up to 3-4 months later. it's not possible for finasteride to accelerate the hair loss, so if you're losing ground faster than before, it must still be a shed. I wouldn't use dutasteride without RU, or other topical antiandrogen, like alfatradiol, as it can significantly increase scalp testosterone, which can still affect the androgen receptors in hair follicles. also, switching the drugs before you're 100% certain that the shed has stopped probably isn't the best idea

        I can easily track the progress backwards of my hairline because I have two hairs from my original hairline a good inch lower than my current hairline. My temples were nuked the hardest with the shedding and loss after though like my right corner now extends a third of the way back my head, over those months it progress an inch and is now just slick bald.

          I wonder if I also suffer from a shed. I'd always thought that I only had norwood 3-4 receding hairline, but when I took a pic of the top of my head, I was dreaded to notice that it's extremely thinned out, other than that, I noticed new hairs sprouting along my previous hairline. I'd been on 1-2 months of topical dutasteride, minox and RU at the time. I thought that my hairloss was much worse than I originally thought, but maybe it was just a shed. I've been buzzing my hair, so it's impossible to notice the falling hair. it got a bit more thick 4 months later

              https://anagenica.com/product/dutmeso-0-05/
              the minox is definitely legit, not sure how much of the regrowth was from it and how much from RU, but the symptoms of high scalp DHT disappeared overnight. it isn't worth for the price, though, and I just take fin now and titrate 2.5mg of topical minox to use orally. you can probably get it cheaper in the US, but it was the only site that shipped from within the EU, otherwise the package is confiscated by the customs

                so you still order from that place?
                You need to get a prescription for Fin in my EU country and most dermatologists won't give it to you unless it's already too late

                I ordered there once so far, the delivery was very slow and they ignored my email at first, but they replied to my second email that the delivery can take up to 4 weeks and I received it exactly at 4 weeks. I still have some leftover topical dut I still use, but it's probably expired now (the product page says 6 months, but I read that realistically it's closer to 3 for topical dut) and I managed to finally get a fin prescription recently. as for topical minox I ordered there, it's way too expensive for something I can get basically for free by titrating 2-3 drops of topical min using an insulin syringe, as it's safe to ingest, because, other than min, it contains just propylene glycol and ethanol. I may order tretinoin there in the future if I run out before finding it for cheaper.

    Does fin affect the face at all? Like make you hold onto face fat? Also does foam min reduce collagen, or is it only the alcohol version?

      isnt this harmful? turns out ive been using this for years and it didnt help with my scalp acne or hair density. I believe it even made it worse. just has a very chemical smell to it. not very comfortable with nizoral. just bought it couple days ago and I realized its the same fungoral Ive been using beforehand for a couple years and that smell and pink color turned me off instantly.

    Would it be worth giving myself a buzzcut before taking OTC rogain? I heard theres a shedding phase and that'd likely make it less visible.

    Also with just the OTC variety can I expect any severe side effects?

            These are the only two things that work. Dutasteride as well but it's just a step up from fin on the same ladder.

            There are other things like RU58841 and Pyrilutimide which are experimental and hard to get ahold of. RU is technically available but expensive and you need a good source.

            The sad fact is that hairloss treatment is not a high medical priority and treatments for it are decades old. Finasteride has been around since the 90's, think minox even longer. Since then there've been plenty of "just two more years and the cure is here" shit that never comes to pass. The next big thing is always two years away while your follicles burn off your scalp.

            Basically you can:
            1. Prevent it with 5AR inhibitors.
            2. Try to get some marginal regrowth with stimulants like minox or alternatives like stemox.
            3. Get a hair transplant.

            The best possible thing would be to start taking fin when you're NW0 but no one does that. Most dudes reach NW2 at least before even noticing or looking into treatment options. Then they get on finasteride too late so they need to try to get some minoxidil going, but minox only works for like 40-60% of dudes and only freak outlier responders wind up recovering any ground, especially hairline. Finally dudes try to regain what was lost with thousands of dollars of travel and hair transplants.

              That's in the case of topical minox. Oral minox works too.

      also every type of hair loss is called alopecia, so some kinds can be fixed with nutrients, it just isn't case with mpb/androgenic alopecia

    Since you have to do topical min twice a day, does oral min benefit the same way because of it's 4 hour half-life?

    When you double the dose, the serum concentration in blood is far more than double even hours later, this just leads me to think blasting 5mg twice a day will keep follicle potassium channel stimulation happening 24/7.

      >you have to do topical min twice a day
      Don't. There are a few videos on youtube of doctors telling you there's little benefit to applying topical twice a day and that it just kinda stuck because that's how they did it in testing and that's how companies can make more money (if you use it more).

    Reminder that every second spent worrying about your fricking hair is one second not spent worrying about other important things. Having long, thick, healthy hair that slowly thins and goes to shit is not fun, but that's life. If you're putting in more effort than the occasional scalp massage, then you've officially entered "old woman who dyes her hair to hide the grey hairs" territory. Unironically toughen the frick up.

    Dutasteride and minoxidil

    -Aggressive daily scalp massage in shower for 7-10 mins. Scratch, finger rub, shake head, all over
    -Reduce shampoo to once a week at most and use nizoral
    -Get sufficient micro nutrients and biotin

    It totally halted my balding and my hairline has been the same for 6 years after it nosedived at age 25-27. If I ever shampoo more than once a week, or get lazy with massages, my hair thins fast. When I stay on top of it, it's very thick and styleable even at NW 2.5/3. Total night and day difference, like ugly coping baldcel with ridiculous thin receded hair to a seemingly full head with the controlled messy look

    Fin killed my dick and turned cum to water
    Never tried minox
